anyone get pregnant after O'ing days after sex?

Postby fjames » Tue Nov 24, 2015 10:48 am

Hi all,

I wanted to reach out to the pregnant ladies to see if any actually got pregnant from having sex a few days before ovulation. I know they say sperm can live several days (under the right conditions) but I wanted to see if this has actually happened to anyone? Can anyone concretely say that they did not have sex the day of or day before ovulation and still got pregnant? SO SO CURIOUS!

Thanks everyone! I appreciate your response.

That would be me!
We only had sex one time during our fertile window the month we got our BFP. We BD about 2 days before I got my positive OPK, and even though I don't temp, I'm pretty sure I ovulated a day later due to my change in CM (from EWCM to sticky) and other signs. So basically I got pregnant from sex that happened roughly three days before ovulation. It's possible and it happens more than you think :D .
Me: 29, DH: 28
DS: 14 months old

BFP! 4/21/15 -> :angel: MMC @ 10w (6/6/15)
BFP! 10/1/15 -> DS born 6/9/16. My RAINBOW Baby!
BFP! 6/26/17 -> EDD 3/8/18 :sticky:

I'm sure the question was after Ovulation, and from what I read the egg is viable 12-24 hrs after it's release so it's possible but the % rate is very low.
