Q&A: Conception
What is the best time to have sex after my wife has had her menstruation to make her fall pregnant? What I have heard was that my wife and I should try on the 14th day after the 1st day of her menstruation.

If you and your wife are fertile and your wife has a 28 day menstrual cycle (Day 1 of menstrual bleeding to the day before next menstrual bleed = 28 days) then Ovulation will occur on Day 14. You should have sex between day 12 and day 15. Contrary to popular belief, daily sex is recommended. However 1 episode of sex at ovulation will result in a pregnancy in a fertile couple.
