Sex 2/3 days before ovulation BFPs?

Postby hadleym9 » Thu Aug 04, 2016 11:31 am

My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive since February. I had a chemical pregnancy one month. We sort of stopped trying in June but we started back in July. My boyfriend works out of town and comes home late on Friday nights and is only there on the weekend, so we weren't able to DTD on the actual day of ovulation or the day before (Monday, August 1 and Tuesday, August 2). However, I think I ovulated a day earlier than my period tracking app says that I ovulate because ovulation is supposed to be around 14 days after the first day of your period, and my period started on July 18, so that would mean ovulation day would be August 1 instead of August 2. We DTD about 2 or 3 days before ovulation - July 30 around 1 AM. I was wondering if anyone who has gotten their BFP BD’d around 2 or 3 days before ovulation. We really want this month to be our successful month. Plus, it would be perfect because the baby’s due date would fall on the day of my boyfriend's birthday, April 25.

Not everyone ovulates 14 days after their period. I would start charting to confirm ovulation. The time between your period and ovulation can fluctuate, it's the time from ovulation to the next period (the luteal phase) that is usually more consistent.

However, BFPs can occur with BDing before ovulation because sperm can live a few days :)

I totally agree with adsloan!

But it is totally possible to conceive having sex 2-3 days before ovulation. Dh and I were only able to DTD on CD 10 at around 1am and I ovulated on CD 13 and got my BFP this month.

Thank you guys so much for replying!

Carrotk, congrats on your BFP! Also, your response gives me hope for this cycle. We were only able to DTD once around 12:30 or 1 AM on CD 13 and according to my period app, I ovulated on CD 16. But the app is usually a day behind for when I'm supposed to start my period/ovulate. I'm hoping this cycle is our cycle!
