During which part of the menstrual cycle is a woman MOST likely to become pregnant?

A At ovulation

A woman is most likely to become pregnant around the time of ovulation, the part of the menstrual cycle in which a mature ovum, or egg, is released into the oviduct. This typically occurs a14 days after the start of menstruation. Because the menstrual cycle can vary in length, however, the rhythm method, or timing intercourse to avoid ovulation, is not a reliable method of avoiding pregnancy.
