Re: Need some advice

She probably O'd yesterday or today since her cycle is so regular.
Typical ovulation occurs 14 days before cycle end. I am assuming May 4th was the first day of her LMP here (first day w/ any bleeding).

Also, it is more likely to have a boy if you BD nearer ovulation day. More likely for a girl if you BD a few days before ovulation and not again after that. The sperm that make little girls are slow swimmers, but live longer. So if they have the time to get up there and wait around they can outlast the "boy" sperm and be there ready and waiting when that egg pops out. But if they BD closer to ovulation the "boy sperm" have a better chance of winning the race to the egg since they swim faster. The 15th is probably pretty close to when she O'd, but I'd say it's anybodies guess. If she BD a bunch before the 15th too there are more likely some "girl sperm" already up there waiting for that egg.

HTH! If she doesn't get preggo this go round and they want a boy I would suggest they wait until day 13 or 14 of her cycle then BD away!
