I have a question.... What are the chances of getting pregnant by having sex 5/6 days prior to ovulation? My husband and i decided to take a chance a have unprotected sex 5/6 days prior to ovulation.. i ovulated on day 14 (no charting i just can feel it always can tell). And the last few days i have felt like my period is coming... lower back ache etc. It could be PMS? im not due for another 10 days for my period.

If your period isn't due for 10 days, you probably have that post ovulation funk that a lot of people get. I get weirdly crampy and so tired a lot of times after ovulation. My breasts will hurt sometimes, too.

It isn't likely that you'd get pregnant that long ago, but sperm can live up to 7 days in freakishly ideal conditions.... Normal sperm life is 48 hours. If you had EWCM then, though, I'd be hopeful.

It could happen, especially if u could have o'd a little early. I o'd early this cycle. But if u did O on day 14, does that mean u r are currently 4dpo?
