Lunar phases are the result of our seeing the illuminated half of the Moon at different angles.
The Moon exhibits different phases as the relative positions of the Sun, Earth and Moon change, appearing as the full moon when the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth, and becoming invisible as the new moon when they are on the same side.

Many feel that lunar phase fertility could be responsible for spontaneous ovulation during the month and could explain why some women get pregnant while they have their period.

Despite the fact that there is no evidence of a significant correlation between phases of the moon and fertility, some people not only maintain that there is, they have a "scientific" explanation for the non-existent correlation.
