This might be a common since ? but I would still like others input....

Lets say my peak day (ovulating) was today but we were only able to have sex yesterday, would that sperm thats still in me from yesterday possibley be able to get me pregnant today? I always here that sperm can last up to 4 days but logically how many days does it last?

  • Yes. Sperm can live for like a day or two. When I was trying to get pregnant we had sex two days before ovulation and on the day of and got pregnant the first try.

  • Yes. Theres a chance of getting pregnant 4 days before ovulation. The sperm can live for a good while once its in there. You can go to websites to see these days is a good one.

  • When you are trying to get pregnant, they tell you to have sex everyother day. Sperm can last a couple of days inside of you.
