My hubby and I are trying to conceive! He travels a lot for work. We had unprotected sex on day 10 of my cycle. Is four days before ovulation too early to conceive? What our the chances of us being pregnant this time?

Depending upon the conditions sperm can live 4-6 days inside a woman. 

When I was in nursing school, we learned that X chromosome sperm and Y-chromosome sperm have different "life spans" inside a woman, and it depends upon how acidic the environment is. 

Depending upon when you ovulate, it COULD be possible.

Good luck!!

How do you know what your acidity level is?

I don't know that answer. I've never heard of anyone testing it or that it can be altered. A woman's vagina is more acidic than the sperm and the semen in lives in, it's just one of the many differences between men and women.

Not sure but most take 4 to 6 months to conceive.

I was just wondering if perhaps diet had anything to do with it. Thanks! :)

I wouldn't think so, but then I'm not a pharmacist. I can say, that a woman's reproductive areas and--fluids--tend to be more acidic than a man's.

What does a pharmacist have to do with diet and fertility??
