  • I believe sperm lives for 72 hours. My fertility specialist always told us to have sex every other day around the time of ovulation. I'm sure the chances are better on the day of, but fine the day before as well!

  • Three days before until one day after you ovulate are the best times to get preganant. Sperm can live inside of you for 3-5 days depending on your ph balance ect. so those were great days to try! Baby dust to you!

  • I think chances for conception are better if you bd before ovulation. Sperm can live inside between 3-5 days. Good luck and I hope this is your month!
