View Full Version : Is there still hope for me this month?

Ok, I o'd Monday afternoon ( I know when I O, I have very specific pain), but dh wasn't in the mood so we didn't bd that night. He was very apologetic when he found out I was fertile :giggle: so we bd last night. I've done research and some sites say the egg only lives for 12-24 hours, but then I found this:

Ovulation is the ideal period of your cycle when your chances of getting pregnant are highest. Your fertile period starts about 4-5 days before ovulation, and ends about 24-48 hours after it. This is because sperm can live in your body for approximately 4 to 5 days, and the egg can live for 24 to 48 hours after being released. In normally fertile couples there is a 25 percent chance of getting pregnant each cycle, meaning around 75 to 85 percent of women who have sex without using birth control will get pregnant within one year. You can boost your chances of getting pregnant by learning exactly when you ovulate by understanding the cyclic hormonal and physical changes that take place in your body each month.

So, is it possible I could still conceive???

Ok, well since no one is replying :giggle: I did some more research. Most of the stuff I found said the egg only lives up to 24 hours and even then it's only good for the first 6-12 for fertilizing. So I'm probably still out. Thbt.

But I did find some info that said it is possible to ovulate twice in one cycle (usually with 24 hours after the first). So I guess there is still a tiny bit of hope, but I won't hold my breath :laugh:
