  • I think the 2 days before & day of are the best, if you can swing all 3. If you just try the day of ovulation it's a hit or miss timing issue. Good luck!

  • 2 days before and 2 days after ovulation are as good to get pregnant as the day of ovulation.
    From what I remember from my biology courses : female spermatozoids are slower than male ones so took them more time to arrive to the egg.
