How long can sperm survive during fertile days? need some opinons adult content

i am trying to figure out how long they live, my days were the 7th through the 12th. i had sex 2 times the 7th and the 8th. what do you think my chances are go becoming prego if i was suppose to ovulate the 12th? i havent had any signs of ovulating like i always do, but i do have dull cramps like period, i have very little discharge (it felt like i peed my pants yesterday and when i went to the bathroom it was just really watery never had that before) i have 2 kids already and both pregnancys were very different. o ya when me and i my hunny took a lil r &r trip i started bleeding the 26th (like 11pm cuz i had sex )and it was weird like i bled when i had sex then it would stop then it would start again a few hours later, but it wasnt really heavy just after i had sex. i only bled for like 2 days, it wasnt a normal period for me. cuz i only used maybe 5 tampons all together. and it stopped the night of the 28th. and we had sex the 26th and 27th and 28th. sorry so long lol any advice? i will take a test april 1st just in case but still i wouldlove to hear your opions thanks so much!

  • Mayo says 5 day in fertile enviroment but I would say 2 to be on the safe side because you don't always have hospitable cm.

  • The other thing to consider is two days in a row can reduce the sperm count.

    50-50 chance here.

  • Everything I've read, except Mayo, has stated 3 days. But all recommend sex every other day for very motile and numerous sperm.
