Whats the best day to conceive?

My period started August 18th and ended August 23rd....any ideas when I would be most fertile? I am really trying for a girl and I read you should have sex like 3 or 4 days before you ovulate so all the boy sperm die and the girls are left to get to the egg so I am trying to time when I should be doing it....

Do you know how long your cycle is? If it's an average 28 day cycle, you would want to count back 14 days from when your next is due and then have sex roughly a week or so before that.  According to a thingy I looked up, it states (if you have a regular 28 day cycle) and are wanting a girl you should have sex the 28th, 29th and 30th.

Be warned, this is ONLY a chance.

clysta is right.....if you know exactly how long your cycles are and they are not irregular you can calculate a best guess of when you will ovulate....the 3 dates given are the possiblities but i would only have sex on one of those 3 days and then not again until after you know you ovulated...

again it's only a chance but i have heard other women say it worked for them

best of luck in TTC

This is what I used to know when I was ovulating. It will also give you the best days for conceiving a specific sex.

Remove the spaces in the address though.
