Should I be able to get pregnant at any time?

“My husband and I are wanting to get pregnant again. I have not been takeing any form of birthcontrol for probably 5 years. Should I be able to get pregnant at any time or do I have to wait til I’m ovulating?”

A: “A woman is most likely to get pregnant when she is ovulating. Ovulation typically occurs 14 days before the start of her period. During ovulation an egg is released from an ovary. If this egg is fertilized by a sperm cell, a pregnancy will occur. If no sperm are present during ovulation a pregnancy will not occur.”
