What are the chances?

If I ovulated yesterday (pretty sure I did) & had sex last night & last thursday, what are the chances it worked? I dont want to get excited about it. Husband works early early & with other kids around it hasn't been easy to find time to do it so I know I have better chance if we do it more often but right now, we are short of time together. So I made SURE we did it last night since I was pretty certain of the ovulation day.

  • If you had sex last night, then you have a pretty good chance. I would think having sex last Thursday and the not ovulating till yesterday would be too big of a gap for that time to result in anything, but it is possible. Usually 3 days before ovulatiion and the day of ovulation and the day after ovulation are your best hopes of getting pregnant! If you can fit one more round of sex in today that could increase your chances. Best of luck!!

  • Actually, having sex 1-2 times a day is not always the best way. That can deplete the sperm count and cause other issues. Having sex once a day or even every other day during your fertile time is plenty!

  • OP here: thanks anon. Sometimes even that is hard...we've been trying for 2 years now so I am getting a bit discouraged. I had a miscarriage in August.
