When you're most fertile depends on your cycle, but typically you're most fertile after menstruation.

Take the average 28 day menstrual cycle - a woman would ovulate on day 14 and there would be a viable egg for up to 48 hours, she would also produce fertile quality cervical mucus for up to a week before ovulation - the fertile phase would be between days 7-16, just after menstruation.

By the time a woman is due to menstruate any egg that was released at ovulation two weeks earlier is long dead, and during menstruation there is no egg present to fertilize. It's important to point out however that unless you use Fertility Awareness Method you can't know when you are fertile.
