Question ovulation

I've been charting my temps and the program I used suggests that I ovulated on day 18 of my 32-35 day cycle. I know that sperm can live for up to five days and we bd on 5 days, 4 days, 3 days and 1 day before ovulation but not since then I am now on cd 21. My question for you is this: How many days past ovulation can the egg still become fertilized? or How many days past ovulation are you still considered fertile? Any input would be great!
Thanks,
Tiff

Re: ovulation

Im not 100% on this but i thought that if sperm live 3-5 days after, then the egg can become fertilised from day 1-5, i know that implantation is around 10dpo, i did think that after day of o you cant catch though i could be wrong i think its best to get the swimmers in there before hand though - if you get my meaning.

Sorry i can not give you any deffinate answers but i hope this helps a little

GOOD LUCK

Re: ovulation

As I understand it, depending on the quality and quantity of your cm, sperm can live up to 5 days inside you, but once the egg has been released from the ovary (ovulation), then the egg is fertile for 12 - 24 hours only, then it dies away. This is why it is better to have all the little guys in position already so they catch the egg in that very short timespan. So you are only fertile 12 - 24 hours post ovulation.

It's all about timing it right, I guess!

Take care

Re: ovulation

All this info... Wow Ladies I am really learning here.

I BD on first day of ovulation. I guess I need to do it again on final day of ovulation....

Only final day I noticed early in the morning that I am still very much in ovulation....

These practice runs.. are tiring to calculate..

Baby dust to all...

Re: ovulation

You are most fertile in the 5 days leading up to O, but you should also BD in the 2-3 days after O. The reason is that sometimes we release two eggs, about 24 hours apart. Of course, if you cought both of them then you'd end up with twins, but hey, that's better than a BFN!

Re: ovulation

SammieP, tell your DR to increase his days a bit for us girls that have a longer cycle. I've Oed as late as CD22 before, and I know someone that regularly Oes on CD 23. If we stopped BDing on CD 20 we wouldn't be giving ourselves much of a chance!

Re: ovulation

greenjppixie - She said that if you have a long cycle to bd every other day until af so i suppose thats usefull info for you My latest o day was cd63, i think if i had bd every other night i would have been worn out

My cycles are short hence why she told me to bd eon until cd20.

Anyway good luck!
