  • It seems early in your cycle, but possible. I'd keep at it as often as possible through the 20th to be certain.

  • Assuming a normal 31-day cycle, you would ovulate sometime from day 13-18, being most fertile in the 2-3 days before that. If you have a longer cycle, that range would be even later. So IF you do indeed ovulate today or tomorrow, you've got a decent shot; but if you've got a long cycle this month, it's not likely.

    Try charting. Read Taking Charge of Your Fertlity by Toni Weschler and check out for some good tips. By doing that, you'll be able to tell for sure when you ovulate during each cycle and when is the best time for you to get pregnant.
