When's best 2 concieve? need help ladies! :)

Hiya!!
I have a 28 day cycle, and should ovulate around the 14th and 15th day which is about right for me.
I have decided to have sex on the 11th day of my cycle right through until the 15th day, i have had some good advice from you all about this and think it sounds right.
But what I was wondering was how long does the sperm stay inside a women? I understand that the egg needs to be fertilized within 24 hrs of its realease but how long can a sperm sit there and still fertilize the egg? as i was a bit confused as i have read that a sperm can stay inside a women for 3 days but it didnt say how long it is fit to fertilize the egg for, as i suppose anything can just sit there but is it still going to do its job days later?

Thanks alot!!

P.S i babysat my cousins little girl the other night! she is 3 months and is the most beautiful thing i have ever seen!!! the midwife said to my cousin she has never seen a baby look so pretty when it has just come out!! LOL!! i cry when i think of her!!

Re: When's best 2 concieve? need help ladies! :)

Sperm can live for up to 5-8 days and still fertilize the egg. If having sex every day doesn't work for you, try every other day. The sperm will still be there to fertilize the egg when it is released but will have more time to build up for a higher sperm count with each encounter. Good luck!
