Baby-making sex

When you're "trying," it's easy to let the mechanics of babymaking overshadow the romance of lovemaking. Unfortunately, stress can interrupt normal ovulation cycles in women, kill your sex drive, and can even cause men's testosterone levels and sperm count to drop.

If you want your baby's conception to be a loving and unforgettable experience, be sure you relax enough to enjoy it!

In the know

Sperm usually meet the egg in the outer third of your fallopian tube. As the fertilized egg (now called a zygote) continues to travel on its way to the uterus, the cells will divide and the embryo will already be growing.


Due date calculator

Do you want to know when your baby will arrive? Or when conception occurred? Enter the date of the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP), cycle length and your luteal phase length (if known), and we will do the calculation for you.

Click here to try it out! You can customize it for your own cycle averages, because we know that not every woman "runs" the same.
