  • the sperm "leaks" out soon after sex, it doesn't stay more than a couple days.The discharge could just be...discharge. good luck tho..

  • I believe ovulation only last about 24 to 48 hours. I never bought kits or anything I used the ovulation calander on for a reference and then I listened to my body. When I had the ewm(egg white mucus) I made sure me and dh were doing our thing.(smile) Also you might look around on that site helped me alot when we were trying. We have 3 by the way. Good luck to you and Happy

  • the egg only lasts 12-24 hours after it is released from the ovary. sperm can live in your body up to 3 days after sex. The "stuff" that comes out after sex is NOT SPERM, it is the ejaculate that the sperm ride out of the penis in.
