The journey of a baby starts not when he/she is born but when the mother conceives. Here, we provide some proven pointers to help you decide the best time to conceive.

When to plan intercourse to conceive a healthy baby?

Indian vedic astrology texts prohibit the intercourse on the first four days of the woman’s monthly menstruation periods (since the chances of sexually transmitted diseases is high during this time).

The days are now counted from the first night (or day) of the periods. On having intercourse on the below mentioned days, if it is successful and the woman gets pregnant, then the corresponding result is said to happen:

  • On the Fourth night of the Periods – An ordinary baby of short life span
  • On the Fifth night – A normal child
  • On the Sixth night – A child who will prosper and extend the family
  • On the Seventh night – A child who will find it difficult to extend the family
  • On the Eighth night – A normal child
  • On the Ninth night – A beautiful and prosperous child
  • On the Tenth night – A prosperous child who will yield authority and be well known in society
  • On the Eleventh night – A normal child
  • On the Twelfth night – Well respected, rich and humble child
  • On the Thirteenth night – A normal Baby
  • On the Fourteenth night – A virtuous and religious child who will follow righteous path
  • On the Fifteenth night – A rich and wealthy child
  • On the Sixteenth night – An intelligent and genius child
