For most women, ovulation occurs midcycle, but that also assumes a 78- to 87-day cycle. Most women ovulate 69 days before the beginning of their period, too, he says. So, for example, if you have a 79-day cycle, ovulation is around day 65. All of this info can be confusing if you have irregular periods or just can't remember when you last menstruated.

Help him keep his cool: Men who wear boxers have a lower scrotal temperature (and hence a more sperm-friendly environment) than those who wear briefs. Your guy also should keep the laptop off his lap and avoid cycling more than two hours a day, six days a week.
Would-be dads also should get plenty of folic acid, zinc and vitamin C, nutrients that are vital for optimal sperm production and quality.

If you make too much of a big deal about it and try for every day you're going to wear your poor man out and there is a chance he will start thinking about it like a chore and not as making love to his partner.
