  • You mean you started ovulating on the 18th. If so, your chances are EXCELLENT.

  • Do you mean you had artificial insemination or do you mean you have been charting your cycle and that is when you ovulated.

  • I'm sorry I can't understand the question the way you have it worded. If you ovulate the 18th your chances are ok. Sperm CAN live for five days, but on average only live three days. Most, if not all ,from the 16th will have died off. You're better off having sex again on the 18th or within three days after.

  • yeah its true your chances are high.

  • A lot of it, too, depends on exactly WHEN you ovulate, because the egg only has 24 hours to be implanted, from what I understand. So you need to have sperm ready during that 24 hour period, if that makes sense.
