  • Yes, if you have sex that day, or around that day. If you conceive then, then the day you ovulated would be considered 2 weeks pregnant, so the day of your missed period would be roughly 4 weeks pregnant.

  • The ONLY time you can get pregnant is when you're ovulating.

    Sperm can live inside you for up to 5 days but the actual day the egg is fertilized and you can pregnant would be ovulation day.

    YOU REALLY NEED TO EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM BEFORE YOU TRY TO HAVE A BABY!

  • Yes if you have sex a few days before or on your ovulation day you can get pregnant. It doesn't ALWAYS happen but it is a HUGE possibility. If you research online or talk to a doctor there are plenty of resources that will teach you how to watch and check for signs of ovulation. There are also kits you can by that will give you an estimation of when you are most fertile. Me personally I learned how to check for signs. such has position and softness of cervix and learn the difference of monthly discharge. It's a lot of messy work but at least that method is free. Good luck and do your research. I am not gonna make fun of you for not knowing this I am just going to assume you never had someone properly explain reproduction to you. So that said if you have any more questions feel free to ask me by messaging.

  • Yes. but the egg is only ideal for about 72 hours following ovulation.
