There are maximum chances of getting pregnant in the mid cycle days  of menstrual cycle. If your cycle is of 28 days (1st day to be counted on the day menstrual flow starts) the 14th day bears the maximum chances of getting pregnant. On the both sides of 14th day chances of conceiving gradually decreases with minimum chance (not zero) near 1st and 28th day of cycle.

Lower lip on the left side has been twitching for 10 days now. It happens many times in a day and lasts for few seconds.

Lower lip on the left side has been twitching for 10 days now. It happens many times in a day and lasts for few seconds.
There is no serious cause of this problem. One can experience this lip twitching due to fatigue, stress, excessive caffeine intake, emotion, or lack of potassium in your diet. Try having a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and take proper rest. This will be normalized.

Your TSH level in borderline,almost toward hypothyroidism. Low thyroid level will affect your chances of getting pregnant. It will create hormonal imbalance in your body which will affect ovulation and implantation process. I would suggest you to bring your thyroid level to normal before thinking of planning pregnancy..

Circumcision has no relation to pregnancy. Only if he is having pain or problem in penis during intercourse, then circumcision is needed, otherwise not.
