While you do hear stories of women who didn’t even know they were pregnant, it can be difficult for others to fall pregnant, especially if they are not aware of the days that they are most fertile each month.
Growing your family can be a huge step in any couples life, especially if you are going to be first-time parents. Our new ovulation calculator is up at running over here and it can help make the process of falling pregnant easier, as you don’t need to consult diaries or calendars - just use our tool and make a note of the dates.
Pregnancy and you
Pacific Prime’s new ovulation calculator tool is perfect for couples looking to get pregnant, but have a difficult time figuring out when is the best time to conceive. All you have to do is enter some basic information regarding the average length of your cycle and date of your last period, and with a click of a button, the calculator has done all the work for you!
Getting pregnant can also become frustrating if you have been trying for quite a long time. If you haven’t looked at dates when you may be the most fertile, then our ovulation calculator could help - even if you have an irregular cycle.
How the calculator works
Our new ovulation calculator tool works by calculating the average number of days in your cycle and then takes into consideration the date of your last period. For many women, ovulation takes place mid-cycle (for those who have regular cycles) and our tool analyses this information to find out when your most fertile days are, as well as your resulting due date.
It’s recommended you obtain maternity cover at least a year before falling pregnant, due to the fact that many insurers will typically put in place a waiting period of about 10-12 months before they will cover pregnancy, birth, and newborn costs. Insurers do this to ensure that they do not lose too much money from paying out claims.
If you’re interested in learning more about maternity insurance or are looking for coverage, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our expert advisors. Pacific Prime has over 15 years experience in providing local insurance solutions to over 60,000 clients, so you can rest assured you’ll be receiving independent expert advice.
