    Well you only fall pregnant during your ovulation dates apparantley, and i know that i conceived on the day i was most fertile in that period.

    A friend of mine swears though she fell pregnant when she wasnt ovulating, I guess it doesnt hurt to keep trying eve when your not ovulating to increase your chances and remember sperm can live up too 7 days.

  • Before you ov if you BD the sperm can live inside you waiting for the egg. Sperm can live up to 5 days or something (probably longer). When you ov if there is sperm waiting around it fertilises the egg. The egg lives for 12 hours. So you can get pregnant right after you ov but only in that 12 hours. After that if you don't ferilise the egg you can't get pregnant. Thats why the period after ov is called the two week wait because you are waiting to see if the sperm caught the egg. Thats also why it is important to BD as much as possible before you ovulate, so theres lots of healthy sperm waiting for the egg. Hope this helps.
