  • If you ovulated on the 18th, no. On the 22nd, yes.

    Too early to test in any event....the tests don't pick up till ten days after ovulation. 10/28 would be your first possible test date.

  • It sounds like the bd was a little early, but who really knows. You must wait till at least 5 days before your period will start to do a hpt. Good luck

  • Sperm can stay alive for up to 4 days (some rare ones are strong enough to live for up to 7 days!) so it sounds like the timing is right, though it might have been a bit too early. You can test 5 days before you miss ur period, but waiting until the day you're due is best.

  • You have a better chance of having a girl if you do the deed a few days earlier.
