You are highly unlikely to get preggo a week from ovulation, but if you happened to, it's a toss-up. Studies have shown that date of conception doesn't seem to matter for gender. But others say a week is boy territory, some say a girl is more likely. I just don't think there is a correlation between conception and gender (one of mine was 3-4 days before ovulation, two were 24-hours around ovulation (one I think was a bit before, one possibly on the morning of ovulation)...first was a boy, latter were a boy and girl).
A study found live sperm after 7 days but it is highly unlikely. The average life, once in the uterus where it can live longer than in the cervix, is 3.5 days. Apparently x and y sperm do swim differently but in a way which has not been proven to affect gender. (it used to be thought x sperm lived longer than y, but y swam faster) Despite this, I have to wonder as I have all girls and yet I have a :boy" diet. Thinking hard about it, Im sure 2 were conceived 3 days before o. The other, I don't remember.
Well it may not have been exactly a week before, I Ovulated sept 11, and concieved sometime around sept 4-7th. Tested positive on sept 28th, Neg sept 24 and w my others never tested positive before 3weeks ( I know the dates for the other two that lead to conception, so thats kind of how I figured it out.)
