That depends on when your doctor told you to take it. You must take it as prescribed by your doctor for it to be most effective. If you have a normal 28-30 day cycle then you would likely ovulate between days 11 and 21. That is the count from the very first day you begin spotting or bleeding for your cycle and you count that as day one then count to 11 that would be your possible first fertile day and then through to the 21st day that would be the last possible day. With my cycle I was fertile on days 14, 15 and 16. Remember though that sperm can survive for up to 5 days inside a woman. So, for example using MY cycle if I had sex on day 9 through day 21 I could still get pregnant. Also some of the experts believe a man's sperm is more effective if having sex every other day versus every day. So basically your best chances are having no sex for 2-3 days leading up to your first fertile day. There is good information out there on how to figure your fertile days. Do a Google search for "how to figure your ovulation day" and read the results that are from a .org or .edu as well as those from IVF support pages and from places like the Mayo clinic. First Response as the ones who make pregnancy and ovulation kits also has information on their website too. Reminder though follow what your doctor advises and if you find conflicting information on the credible sites then write your questions down and make an appointment to discuss them. Good luck!
