  • Yes, sperm can be inside your body for up to 72 hours ( i think ) before it actually fertilizes an egg

  • If you had sex on the 7th and didn't ovulate until the 9th, sperm would still be living up to 3 days after you had sex. So yes it's possible

  • Yes. Those little guys can live up to 3-4 days after having sex and you may not have ovulated on the 7th, but rather the 8th or 9th. The doctors are also just guessing based on either your last menstrual period or an ultrasound unless you were taking your temp and charting and what not.

  • Yes, but the doctor could also be a day or two off. They just geuss, its not like they actually know the exact date you conceived.
