I am 44 years old and have very regular periods-is there anyway to tell if an egg has actually been released? We've been trying to get pregnant again for about 6 months but nothing yet.

Yes, there are various ways to monitor whether you have ovulated (released an egg from the ovary). These include measuring your temperature daily, checking how stringy your cervical mucus is or more reliably ultrasound scans or home ovulation kits. Ovulation kits are the easiest and simplest way to find out if you are ovulating and can be bought at many pharmacies.

The moment of conception
Normally, only one sperm can break through the outer membrane of the egg; once the sperm enters the egg, the sperm loses its tail.

After six days, the cluster of cells develops a hollow cavity. Called a blastocyst, it attaches itself to the wall of the womb. Some cells grow into the womb''''s lining and the fetal life-support system (the placenta) begins to form.
