Hi there!

I think the last time I posted here was in January. I'm back!

Curious to know what you think my chances are of getting pregnant... Here's the deal. My cycles are 24-25 days. I don't chart or temp, so I don't know exactly when I ovulate, but I *think* (based on physical symptoms) I ovulated yesterday (Monday) or am today (Tuesday). DH and I had unprotected sex 2 times on Saturday and 1 time on Sunday. Will the sperm be viable if I ovulated yesterday or even today?

Thanks in advance!

Molly

Well, you would have timed the sex right. Sperm can live 5+ days in the vagina when conditions are fertile.

Whether or not you're pregnant it's hard to say. It's way too soon to test, but your timing is good.

Did you have any symptoms that make you believe you ovulated Monday/Tuesday? How many days are you into your cycle?

Hi Urchin!

Thanks for the reply.

How quickly one forgets all this info like the life expectancy of sperm (!!). I have two sweet girls, so clearly have been through this all before. Ah, the joys of motherhood-induced memory loss!

So, CD1 was 5/6, which means:

Saturday (sex x2) = CD9
Sunday (sex x1) = CD10
Monday (no sex/ovulate??) = CD11
Tuesday (protected sex/ovulate??) = CD12

That said, again I'm not really sure when I ovulate. Given my 24-25 day cycles, it's a little confusing to me (especially since I don't temp and chart).

You asked about symptoms that made me think I was ovulating. Yes; slight pain/cramping on my lower right side, increased sex drive (?) and today, increased CM.

Of course too soon to test. Blah - the dreaded 2ww! I'll see if I can hold out until Monday, May 30.

Sounds like with your cycle length, it would be a logical time for you to be ovulating.

Good luck! I hope you get the result you want!

Have you noticed feeling really wet or slippery in the last little while? If so, when? That will help determine when ovulation was.

That's likely the day closest to ovulation then, good luck!

Thanks Shawna! We shall see.

I plan to test Friday, 5/27, which might even still be early. That'll be 11dpo, based on a Monday O date. Ugh. Seems like so far away...
