Generally a woman releases 1 egg a month during ovulation. This egg once released has a survival of approximately 24 hours. Sex will have to occur around this period of time for fertilization to take place.

Dear Hope
You will find a lot of information about ovulation on the internet. You need to make sure you know when you ovulate. It is not necessarily Day14 as many people believe, but 14 days before your next period. So if you know how long your cycle is, deduct 14 days and then you will know!
An egg will live for about 24 hours, so have intercourse on the 2 days before ovulation as well as the day after, as semen lives longer than the egg (apparently up to 72 hours). Your body will also give you signs, look out for cervical mucus which looks like egg-white.

Good luck!
