Patient discussion about fertilize

Q. i just have my period last november 25 and ended on 28.when is my possible fertile and ovulation period please help me identify my fertile and ovulation period

A. If someone knew it, it'd solve the human race many problems with fertility. The problem is that ovulation (and thus, the period of possible fertility) happens 14 days BEFORE the onset of menses, so you know about it only retrospectively.

However there ways such as serial body temperature measuring, along with kits that measures the level of hormones in the urine in order to estimate the time of the coming ovulation, and help in timing intercourse.

You may read more about it here (www.mayoclinic.com/health/ovulation-signs/AN01521 ) but anyway, consulting a doctor (e.g. gynecologist) may be wise.

In an Australian study, fertilising and resowing of a New England grassland almost quadrupled total nematodes in 0-10 cm soils (Yeates and King 1997).
Assuming the grasslands on both properties were similar before fertilising, the results show clearly that the fertilised sites have undergone varying degrees of vegetation change.
The inability to maintain oversown species has long-term implications for the productive and economic sustainability of oversowing and fertilising in the high country and is discussed further below.
