What are the chances I would get pregnant?

If I had sex with no B/C whatsoever (NONE) and then found out that my actual ovulation date was the day after said incident (meaning egg was supposed to be released the day after) what are the chances of 'me' getting pregnant?

  • Sounds as if there is an excellent chance, all things considered- that is, if there isn't a fertility problem.

  • Yep I agree with the other ladies. Very god chance unless you have fertility issues.

  • Chances are very good. As the PP said, sperm can live up to 5 days. So, if you ovulate, it is possible to get pregnant. Although, I have read that they only retain fertility for 48 hours while in the female genital tract.

  • Your best chances for getting pregnant are with in the first 48 hours after you ovulate. So your chances are pretty good of getting pregnant. Im currently 6 wks and we had sex 2 days before i ovulated and got pregnant(but we were ttc)

  • From what I have researched online in my attempt to TTC #2 I have ready that sperm can live for up to 72 hrs. I guess you are in your 2ww!
