Our expert says:
Most people actually do not watch for ovulation and time intercourse, they just fall pregnant. It is the minority who 'try' so hard. Remember also that ovulation does not always occur at the expected time of the month.
In terms of famine, there is a difference in acute starvation for a few months, which is usually what happens in a famine and chronic underweightness. In the first, women fall pregnant but babies are growth retarded, in the second, ovualtion is interefered with and pregnancy is less likely.
