We have been TTC for awhile now, if we had sex the day before ovulation ?

What are our chances of pregnancy? I didnt have fertile CM the day before but I really did the day of ovulation. and I know sperm can live for up to 5 days but does it always live for 24 hours??

  • Sperm live for an average of 3 days. 5 days is the max. The egg lives for 12-24, so it's better for the sperm to be there waiting! I think the day before is great timing! Good luck :)

    Oh and just because you didn't have visible fertile CM on the outside, doesn't mean there wasn't any hanging around inside around the I wouldn't worry.

  • My doctor said you should have intercouse everyother day from days 9-21 just to be safe. then you will cover all your bases. I think if you did the night before you should have a good chance!!!! Good lucks!!!
