Should I ‘soup’ the fertilized egg?

Egg soup based on the menstrual cycle or body changes… to choose the time to have sex, improve the conception rate for couples.

Doctor Le Duy Thao, IVF Fertility Support Center, Hong Ngoc General Hospital, said sperm can live for three to five days in a woman’s genital tract, but an egg after ovulation can only last for three to five days. best fertilization in the first 24 hours. Therefore, if we know the time of ovulation in advance, we can increase the odds of conception.

Regarding the mechanism of ovulation, the follicle only ovulates when two conditions are satisfied: the follicle containing the egg must be large enough, and the second must have a suitable peak of hormone concentration.

For egg soup, you can rely on the date of your period. For women with regular menstrual periods, between 21 and 35 days, ovulation will be 14 days after the first day of the next period. Thanks to that, we can estimate the day of ovulation by subtracting 14 from the number of days of the menstrual cycle. For example: If your menstrual cycle is regular for 28 days, then the day of ovulation will be the 14th day of the cycle. menstruation; Similar to a 21-day cycle is the 7th day, a 35-day cycle is the 21st day.

“However, this method is only a prediction, only suitable for regular menstrual periods and with a certain error rate,” the doctor said.

Ultrasound also helps evaluate the size of the follicle, which can predict whether the follicle is mature enough and can be released. This method is only most accurate when determining ovulation, or monitoring hormone levels in the body with urine tests, blood tests. After the LH hormone peaks, ovulation occurs 36 hours later. This method is more expensive because it has to determine the approximate time when ovulation can occur, then continuously test to know when ovulation occurs.

You can track your body’s changes to track when you ovulate. Specifically, when ovulating, the body temperature will increase about 0.5 degrees above normal or estimated by measuring the temperature every morning. “However, when the temperature rises, it means that the egg has already been released and we have missed the golden time for conception,” emphasized the doctor.

The most accurate method is based on cervical mucus changes. Normally, after the period ends, the vagina is often dry, and the cervical mucus is gradually increased. Towards the middle of the cycle, cervical mucus increases, changes in nature to become more transparent like egg whites.

“This is the most ideal time, even two days after this point the odds of conception are still very high,” the doctor said.

In addition, when encountering strong emotions, a woman’s eggs can completely ovulate without meeting the conditions of size and endocrine. Therefore, the emotional sublimation during sex also contributes to an increase in the rate of conception.

However, ovulation monitoring tends to cause couples to delay intercourse and miss the most favorable time to get pregnant. In some cases, unnecessary psychological stress leads to a decrease in the success rate of conception.

The doctor recommends that couples wishing to have children should maintain good health and avoid stress and fatigue. Maintain the frequency of intercourse at the level of every 3 to 5 days and should pay attention to quality over quantity.

For couples under the age of 35, who have been trying to get pregnant for a year without success, or over the age of 35 who have tried for more than 6 months without success, should see a specialist for early treatment.
