  • You should refrain from sex or protect for 6-7 days before ovulation and 3-4 afterwards. You are fertile for close to a week before you actually ovulate. Sperm can live in you until you ovulate (3 days) so if you have sex today, sperm will still be swimming and hunting for 3 days which is why women say that they didn't have sex when they ovulated but still got pregnant. Unless you know the exact day you will ovulate (try body temp monitoring, checking cervix and mucous), I wouldn't have unprotected sex for the time I noted above.
