But in Indian philosophy, ‘The wages of Sin is Birth’ for without Birth there is no Death and one has to experience the results of the actions performed by him and this is made possible by one being born.
Hence of the Forty Samskaras, Garbha Dhaanam-The Rite to Beget Good Children is the first Samskara.
This is normally performed on the day of the marriage before consummating it.
This is possibly a few of the Homas that are performed after Sunset.

All these observations are being proved by Science now.
1.Women conceive in the first 16 Days from the day of last Menstruation Date.
2.If the inter course is on Even days from the Date of last Menstruation.the Child will be Male.If on Odd Days, it shall be Female.
3.Of these Sixteen Days on the following Days, no intercourse is recommended.

-Eighth,Eleventh,Twelfth, Fourteenth Day from the Day of new Moon /Full Moon.(Ashtami,Ejadasi,Dwadasi,Chaturdasi)
Birth Day based on The Star in which one is born is to be avoided.(Janma Nakshatram of Husband)
