What do I have to know about my cycle of fertility to use the mucus and counting days method?
A woman releases one egg each month.
The egg is released from the ovary about 14 days before the next monthly bleeding.
The egg lives for about 24 hours (1 day and 1 night) after it has been released from the ovary.
The man’s sperm (seed) can live up to 2 days inside the woman’s body.
