Welcome to ehealthforum.
When you are trying to conceive, the best time to have intercourse is from immediately after your periods until the midcycle. The ovulation days can be calculated for you if you have regular cycles. So intercourse during these days will help in getting pregnant. If you have been trying for long (without success) or have been having irregular periods (most of the time), then a complete check is recommended with gynecologist that would include an examination and investigations (blood tests, hormonal levels, ultrasound scan) along with semen analysis of your partner (to see quality and quantity of sperms are fine). If any abnormality is found, treatment can be directed to correct it and aid you in conceiving.
Take care.
