  • Most women on a 29 day cycle will ovulate between days 12 to 16. Sperm can live in your vagina for several hours, sometime more than a day. On day 12, start trying and dont stop until at least day 16! You can chart your basal body temperature to try to determine the day of ovulation. That's a pain. You can also buy ovulation tests. but 4 days of sex can be fun!

  • ecodani is correct...during your fertile phase, sperm can live 96 hours inside you.

  • You probably ovulate somewhere from 11-15 days before your period starts, which for you would be somewhere from day 14-18. You're most fertile in the 2-3 days prior to that, so for the best shot you should have sex at least every other day from day 10-19. If you want to know for sure when you ovulate, you should chart and/or use OPKs (charting is more reliable and cheaper). On-line calendars where you just plug in dates aren't very reliable because our bodies are not the same, and even if another woman had the same 29-day cycle, she could ovulate 2-3 days later than you, or vice-versa, and there's no way to tell that from dates alone. Charting and getting to know your body is the best thing to do. Check out www.fertilityfriend.com.
