Can You Get Pregnant From Intercourse After Ovulation?



 

There is a lot of confusion among women on whether or not you can get pregnant from intercourse after ovulation. And the correct answer is, yes you can, but only for a very short time.  It is imperative that you understand your menstruation pattern and ovulation timings to understand how and when you may get pregnant.

Understanding Ovulation

Ovulation, simply put, is the release of the mature ovum from the follicle in to the fallopian tubes. Ovulation usually occurs around day 14 of a regular 28-day menstrual cycle.  Once the ovum is thus released, it is available to a mature sperm for fertilization for 12 to 24 hours before it begins to disintegrate. This is the most fertile period of your cycle and during ovulation your chances of conception are highest.

The time of ovulation within the menstrual cycle is determined by the luteal phase, which is usually 12 to 16 days long in most women. You can calculate the time of ovulation within your cycle by subtracting the length of your luteal phase from the length of your cycle. For example, if your cycle is 28 days long and your luteal phase is 12 days long, the ovulation will occur on day 16 of your cycle. The exact time of ovulation may vary within your cycle even if you have religiously regular menstrual cycles. This is because ovulation can be delayed by a number of factors such as stress, illness, diet, or increased physical activity.

How can I get pregnant from intercourse after ovulation?

For women who are trying to get pregnant, it is often advised that they should have intercourse  before ovulation. This helps in conception since the sperm from the man is deposited into the cervix and as soon as the ovum is released, it has the opportunity to be fertilized. But this in no means limits the woman’s ability to get pregnant after ovulation. In fact her chances of getting pregnant only depend on when she ovulates and how that is timed with intercourse. Considering the fact that the ovum starts to disintegrate 12 to 24 hours, there is a small chance that your partner’s sperm can fertilize the egg for a short time after the egg has been released into the fallopian tubes.  Keep in mind that the chances of getting pregnant this way dramatically decreases the further away from ovulation you are.

So if you are trying to get pregnant, cheers, you can try to have intercourse anytime near ovulation to increase your chances of getting pregnant, periods or not! It will greatly help you if you chart your ovulation pattern and also monitor your cervical mucus. In addition maintaining a chart of your basal body temperature will also be very helpful in pin pointing that fertile window which can help you conceive faster.

    Ok, my last period was on April 21. I have a 30 day cycle which means I ovulated on the first week of may. What are the chances of getting pregnant if I had unprotected sex on April 27 which was a day after my period , may 13&16 which is a week after ovulation and a week before my period. I use an app to track everything but idk how reliable it is?

    If you plug your info into an ovulation calendar, it comes back with these details:

    Sunday 21st April 2013 – First day of your cycle
    Friday 3rd May 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Saturday 4th May 2013 – Fertile
    Sunday 5th May 2013 – VERY fertile
    Monday 6th May 2013 – Time to ovulate
    Thursday 16th May 2013 – A home pregnancy test may work now.

    The 27th would have been too early and the 13th and 16th would have been too late. Actually, you should have gotten your period yesterday based on these numbers.

  • POO11

    Hi,
    The ovulation calendar predicted my ovulation dates on 9th June’13 as per my last three cycles.But this time my ovulation was delayed by 2 days and i predicted it to be today with the help of OPK.Just wanted to know the best days to have sex to have a child ,we had sex yesterday only.

  • Diamond

    The last day of my period was April 23, after a 28 days cycle. I’ve sex the 29 and the 2nd of May. Two days before my period (5/17) I took a test and it came back positive.. 7+ weeks pregnant now. I used “my days” period tracker. It’s very accurate on period and ovulation.

  • http://www.earthsmagic.com/ Vickie B.

    You have an chance of getting pregnant if you got a positive ovulation test today. Sperm can survive around 4 days after ejaculation. The positive ovulation test says that you will ovulate in 24 to 36 hours so there should still be viable sperm.

  • shanta

    My lmp was May 13 thru 19. My ovulation time was May 22 thru the 27. My Husband and I had sex on the 22, 27, and the 31. Can I be pregnant.

  • http://www.earthsmagic.com/ Vickie B.

    The timing looks good for the 22nd and the 27th :) Good luck!

  • Kwhitney

    I’m trying to figure out what time I actually got pregnant.
    I’m nine weeks today.

    4/20 last period
    5/1 intercourse
    5/5 +opk
    5/7 -opk
    5/7 intercourse
    5/15 +hpt
    5/18 period due
    6/21 9 weeks by ultra sound

    We where taking a break from ttc that month so I could stop stressing and we ended up pregnant somehow. I’m not complaining!

  • http://www.earthsmagic.com/ Vickie B.

    Congratulations! I would think that 5/1 was a tad too early as a positive opk says you will ovulate in 24 to 36 hours. That would make ovulation on the 6th or the 7th. It isn’t impossible though because sperm can survive up to 5 days after ejaculation. Depending on the timing the 7th may have been the date as well because you would have just been ovulating around that time.

  • Sarah

    My due date is dec. 3.2013. I have a regular period every 26′ every month. Trying to fig out which date seems most fit for me to became pregnant. Was it close to feb 10 or feb 16 which I had inter course on those days to become pregnant. I had no ejaculation on feb 10….and took a plan B on second day of the 16. I’m trying to get an estimate on which date is more accurate. Thanks so much

  • Ana

    Hi, I took an ovulation test on Wednesday, and it came back positive. My husband was away on business and didn’t get back until the Friday. We had sex that night and then the next night. Is there a possibility I might be pregnant, or did we miss the window this month?

  • http://www.earthsmagic.com/ Vickie B.

    Hard to say. Typically a positive ovulation test means you will ovulate withing 24 to 36 hours, but it can be a little after that. It really depends on when you actually ovulated. It is possible that timing was right. You will have to test in about two weeks :) Good Luck!

  • Christina H.

    My period has not been completely regular yet as I just stopped bfeeding my son about 3 months ago, but I had a 29 day cycle in May. My cycle for June began on June 1, and I should have O’d (according to 29 day cycle) on 6/16. BD on 6/14 and 6/17. I’m sure I have a pretty good chance of BFP this month. Would it be too soon to test today or tomorrow?

  • http://www.earthsmagic.com/ Vickie B.

    If you get one of the more sensitive tests, you might get a positive if you are pregnant. With most tests on the market, you should be able to pick up a positive on Thursday if you are pregnant. Good luck!

  • harlembeauty

    Could having sex 2 consecutive days before ovulation result in a pregnancy?

  • http://www.earthsmagic.com/ Vickie B.

    Sperm can survive up to 5 days after ejaculation so, yes, pregnancy is possible.

  • Kim

    My cycles range from 26 to 34 days. The last three were 27. Lmp was may 26 for 4 days. Only date we tried was June 14…June 27 bfp! I really thought w missed our chance, but here i am 5 weeks???

  • Clementine

    My lmp was June 17 I have 28 day cycle. I had intercourse with my husband on June 25 is it possible for me to get pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It looks like you would have had a longer cycle this month. If you plug in 34 days as your cycle length, the 14th was ovulation day. :D Congratulations!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that the 25th is a good date. If you plug your information into our ovulation calendar, this is what is says your fertile days are:

    Wednesday 3rd July 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Thursday 4th July 2013 – Fertile
    Friday 5th July 2013 – VERY fertile
    Saturday 6th July 2013 – Time to ovulate

  • Clementine

    My lmp was June 17 I have 28 day cycle. I had intercourse with my husband on June 25 is it possible for me to get pregnant?

  • HJ

    I tested positive on April 6, went to OB but couldnt find anything, no heartbeat only Sac on my 5wks but no bleeding, nothing! I had D&Cn apr 19th. Had sex weeks after… Then so My LMP was May 20, OPkvulation day should be on june 3rd per ovulation tracker app :-) My next supposedly period day was June 17, but bleeded on the 15th for only 3day, idk if it was my period or implantation. My period usually lasts 5days but this one didnt. I tested week after negative, and recently on the 28th night time, i heard you have to take early in the mornin but bf wants to know :- but both got negative result. Per ovulation tracker app I should be ovulating on the 29th, but when OPK it was negative. Argh! Im so confused :-( we had sex on the 27, 28 nd 30 today. I will pray for the best! Hopefully I am… I Will test in two weeks again coz mynext period should be on july 13. Wish me luck!

  • spoiled89

    hello, my name is Debbie and I just noticed heavy and thick egg whites ovulation today while at work, came home with hubby and rushed into baby dancing today which the 30th of june 2013. can I still be pregnant? just needed to know, so excited when I found out I wad ovulating good too..

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could be that your body is trying to regain hormonal balance after the miscarriage. It can take a couple of months for you body to get back to normal. That could account for the opk not showing results when you think they should be. The ovulation apps really only work well if someone has has a regular cycle. At the moment, it doesn’t appear that is the case for you. Good luck!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    This would be a case of not enough information to determine if you had an opportunity to get pregnant. You should visit our ovulation calendar and plug in your dates to find out when you should have been ovulating.

  • NikkiJ

    My last period was June 6-10. We had intercourse on the 23rd. My previous period was May 10-14. Is it possible to be pregnant? And when is the best time to take a test?

  • laura

    Hi I have a question my fertile days were June 11 thru June 16 and me and the hubby had unprotected sex June 9 and June 15 I got my period June 25 and my menstrual ovulation app said I needed to get it on the 28 can I still be prego?? I really hope so :)

  • Curious

    I have my 9 weeks and 4 days pregnant today. I had last sex on April 25 is it possible that I’m first week pregnant of May 6?

  • Deanna Alvarado

    My lmp was June 26 on average it lasts about 4-5 days. My partner and I have actively been ttc we tend to have intercourse every 2 days including yesterday July 4. When would be the best day to conceive also we just both started working are schedules a bit hectic would yesterday be enough to get pregnant? PLEASE RESPOND(:

  • Wsh

    I had my Have had period 6-19-13, My OPK positive on July 4th. My Period is due 7-16-13 My husband and I have had unprotected sex since 6-30-13.

    When is the EARLIEST time to due a HPT??

    Thank you!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    July 12th would be the earliest, though closer to when your period is due would be better because it will give you body time to accumulate enough hcg (the pregnancy hormone) for the test to detect.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Based on the info you provided, it would appear that the 4th would have been a little too early. If you have a typical 28 day cycle, the following would be the dates you would want to aim for.

    Wednesday 26th June 2013 – First day of your cycle
    Saturday 6th July 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Sunday 7th July 2013 – Fertile
    Monday 8th July 2013 – VERY fertile
    Tuesday 9th July 2013 – Time to ovulate

    Wednesday 24th July 2013 – First day of your cycle
    Saturday 3rd August 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Sunday 4th August 2013 – Fertile
    Monday 5th August 2013 – VERY fertile
    Tuesday 6th August 2013 – Time to ovulate

    You can calculate out further by using our ovulation calendar http://www.babyhopes.com/ovulation-calendar.html

  • brittany

    Last period was 13-19 of June. Had sex. 2nd of July. Could I be pregnant if my cycles are about. 31 days apart?

  • Betty

    Me and my husband have been trying to get pregnant after having an IUD taken out two months ago my cycle came on may 3rd I ovutated from the 14th to the 19 and my cycle came back on may 31st and I ovutated jun 11th to the 16th we had sex all that week and my cycle came back on jun 28th and now I should be ovulating again. While I have a hard time getting pregnant because of that IUD I had in?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I’m a tad confused. You only ovulate on one day. How are you determining that you are ovulating for 6 days?

  • Betty

    I used the ovulation calender to determine when I would be ovulating my cycle came on may 3rd and it said I would ovulate may 10th a little the 11 fertile the 12 very fertile and the 13 ovulation and now its jun my cycle came on jun 28th and the ovulation calender say I should be ovulating the 8th a little the 9th fertile the 10 very fertile and the 11th ovulation.

    Hi my last period was may 10-17. We had intercourse on may 21 and again on may 29. Had implantation bleeding on June 7.
    When was it likely that I conceieved on the 21 or the 29. I was 100% sure there was no cervical mucus on the 21

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It really depends on how long your cycle is. But if you have a typical 28 day cycle, it looks like the 21st would have been the date based on our ovulation calendar:

    Friday 10th May 2013 – First day of your cycle
    Monday 20th May 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Tuesday 21st May 2013 – Fertile
    Wednesday 22nd May 2013 – VERY fertile
    Thursday 23rd May 2013 – Time to ovulate

    I’ve had sex several Times unprocted with my partner never looked to the whole ovulation thing haven’t gotten pregnant but I have this app on my cell where it tells me fertility and ovulation..I had sex two days before ovulation can it be possible I can become pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s possible as sperm can survive up to 5 days in optimal conditions.

  • hnubtshiab

    Is it possible to get pregnant the day before I expect to have my period? While I haven’t charted my ovulation cycle, I have used an app to track my period. My menstrual cycle is usually 33-35 days. I had unprotected sex with my partner last night. My app projected my next period to start today but I haven’t started my period yet. We’ve been talking about having children and last night we decided to give it a go sans protection.

    If the egg was not fertilized before it was released, can it be fertilized while it’s hanging out during the luteal phase or has it already disintegrated by the time I expect to have my next period? Does it even work that fast…that we would have unprotected sex and I would miss my period the next day?

  • hnubtshiab

    My period may still be on its way later this week, but if it doesn’t come, how soon should I take an OTC pregnancy test?

  • bablu

    hai… follicular study done… egg ruptured.. had intercourse on 4th,5th,6th sept… for the past 2days(8th and 9th) i felt like giddiness… is that confirms pregnancy… can anybody answer… pls..

    hi my last period was august 29 th I am on a 26 day cycle according to the calendar my fertile day was on the 9 th and the 10 th very fertile on the 11 th it is time to ovulate..can I get pregnant on the ovulation day.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Yes, you can get pregnant on the ovulation day.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Until you get a positive pregnancy test, there is no way to tell.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You typically need to have sex about 14 days before you get your period for the possibility of getting pregnant. Once ovulation happens, you have about 24 hours to fertilize it or it will start disintegrating. Having sex the day before your period would not result in pregnancy.

  • anon

    Need help!! Last period was June 13… had intercourse June 21,23,24…. then again on July 1st… is it more likely I got pregnant on one of the June dates or July 1st?? I usually have a normal 28 day cycle

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you are pregnant, it would be the June dates that you most likely would have conceived with.

  • anon

    Yes I’m pregnant. How sure are you on that? I know that might not be possible to tell but in July it was a different man so I’m trying to figure out whose it is.

  • MommaOf6

    LMP September 14. I believe I began ovulating October 1 or 2. Had unprotected sex October 4, 5, and 6. My cycles are never the same amount of time between. Some months shorter, other months longer. I am also nursing my 14 month old. This morning I woke with a turning stomach and low back cramps on and off. Could we have possibly hit the tail end of ovulation?

  • Unique

    Hello I want to know if I have a chance this month we really wassnt trying becuz it seems wen u try you get disappointed at the end so we didn’t give it much try but my cycle came on sept 28th the ovulation calendar said I will ovulate on oct 8 thru 11th we started bd this month on oct 5th we skip a day then on the 7th we bd all the way thru the 11th and again on the 13th I just want to know do I have chance in I also used preseed and laid flat for 15mins afterwards.

  • megan

    HI my last period was oct 4th, and my period tracker says i have a 26 day cycle, it also said i would ovulate on oct 16th. I was surprised when I got a smiley positive on my clear blue opk on the 14th. we could not have sex the 14th but dtd on the 15th, 17th and 18th. On the 18th my opk was neg but my CM still looked very fertile. Im so confused now. could I still be pregnant or did I miss my window? thanks!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    As a positive opk denotes that you will ovulate in 24 to 36 hours, you could have caught you ovulation when you had sex on the 15th. If you ovulated later than than the 15th or 16th, you would have caught ovulation with the 17th or the 18th. Sperm can survive for up to 4 days after ejaculation so you don’t have to dtd right at ovulation.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Your timing was good, so if you did ovulate there is a chance that you could be pregnant.

  • BLAH87

    HI, MY PERIODS ARE 28DAYS LONG I WAS WONDERING WHEN WOULD BE A BEST TIME TO TRY AN CONCEIVE

  • Samantha H

    My period was sept 12 and we had unprotected sex randomly all month. That was my first period off of my iud. Took two pg tests today and neg. waiting til my period decides to show up or not. Thinking about testing in a week again, do you think I could be preggers? I’m hoping so!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Typically, you will ovulate 14 days after your period starts. So days 12, 13, and 14 would be good days to try to get pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you have been having sex without protection, there is always the chance you could be pregnant. If you were using the Mirena IUD with the hormones, it could take your system a little longer to get back to normal though so your cycle could be a little wacky for a month or two.

  • tt

    Hey my period came on oct 2 or oct 3 i found out i was pregnant nov 7 so how is it possible i conception on oct 17 and i used a condom with that person but days before i didn’t use a condom with the other guy…so could i have gotten pregnant days before

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Based on the assumption that you have a 28 day cycle, these are the days you were most fertile:

    Sunday 13th October 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Monday 14th October 2013 – Fertile
    Tuesday 15th October 2013 – VERY fertile

    Wednesday 16th October 2013 – Time to ovulate

    Based on those dates, the 17th would have been too late.

  • lily

    My period for this month was November 1-6th and ovulation was the 10-15th.. my boyfriend ejaculated inside me the 16th twice and once today(20th).. my next period is the 28th.. is there a chance I could be pregnant and not have my period the 28th?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It really depends on when you actually ovulated. Only one day of the 10th – 15th is the actual ovulation date. If you ovulated late on the 15th there is a possibility you could get pregnant.

  • Tameka taylor

    Hey guys I got my period nov 10-14 I started taking clomid nov 11-15 can u guys help me out when should I ovulate?

    Had unprotected sex with my partner last night and we have finally decided now is the right time to give our little lady a brother or sister. However this month we assumed we had missed ovulation as my period started early hours 15th Oct. However today I have been cramping a lot on the right side & lots of CM (typical ovulation signs for me) Didn’t have any OPK’s as gave them to my sister who is desperately trying for a baby. Helppppp confused!

  • Kade

    I Ovulated Nov. 27 or 28th .. Most likely the 28th I know because Wednesday late night I noticed my cm being fertile. I have a 31-32 day cycle and my last period was nov. 10th – 16th . I didn’t have intercourse until nov 29, 30 and dec 1 and 2. What are my chances of pregnancy ? First month trying :)

  • Kade

    Vickie, I really need your advise I posted twice.

  • Cass

    Vicki I need help lol. I have a rare auto immune disease that really flares up one week prior to my period and the week after making this “baby dance” almost impossible. I try so hard not to take steroids during these flares so as not to mess with my cycles. My husband and I have been trying for almost two years. If the first day of my last cycle was 20th of Nov .The last day of it was the 26th. We did the baby dance on the 28th, 2nd, and the 4th. I am hoping I hit the ovulation cycle. Any advice?

  • Em

    Hi Vickie, I’m currently 31 + weeks pregnant, shapely not sure of father, my lmp was 3rd of may, with the last 3 being on a 24 day cycle , I had sex on the 7th may n 15th , 7th being just before being fertile and 15th being the day after my last fertile day I am expecting a girl but in your opinion which would more likely be the father 7th or 15th?

  • Em

    Shamefully not shapely

  • Kade

    I believe it belong to the person on the 7th. The days before ovulation are your more fertile days.

  • Kade

    As we both sit are wait for Vicki’s advice I’ll add mine :).
    I’m not too sure when your ovulation date would be because you didn’t stay how long your cycle it? I’d assume 30 days I guess, it that’s so then your fertile days would be between 2 – 5th December.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you are taking Clomid, that would imply that you are not ovulating regularly. The clomid will act differently for every woman and only your doctor will be able to find out how well it is working for you.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, you can’t be totally sure when you are ovulating unless you are tracking it some how. Ovulation can be delayed by many different factors, including stress or illness. Maybe you ovulated later than expected due to things that you were experiencing in the last month

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Based on our ovulation calendar, these are the dates based on a 32 day cycle.

    Sunday 10th November 2013 – First day of your cycle

    Sunday 24th November 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Monday 25th November 2013 – Fertile
    Tuesday 26th November 2013 – VERY fertile
    Wednesday 27th November 2013 – Time to ovulate

    Unfortunately, it looks like you may have missed ovulation by a bit.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It really depends on how long your cycle is, but assuming a 28 day cycle, these are the dates for you based on our ovulation calendar:

    Wednesday 20th November 2013 – First day of your cycle
    Saturday 30th November 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Sunday 1st December 2013 – Fertile
    Monday 2nd December 2013 – VERY fertile
    Tuesday 3rd December 2013 – Time to ovulate
    Friday 13th December 2013 – A home pregnancy test may work now.

    November 2nd looks like it timed very well, so you may want to have a pregnancy test on hand to test :) Good luck!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Based on your 24 day cycle and starting date of the 3rd of May, these are the dates:

    Friday 3rd May 2013 – First day of your cycle
    Thursday 9th May 2013 – A little bit fertile
    Friday 10th May 2013 – Fertile
    Saturday 11th May 2013 – VERY fertile
    Sunday 12th May 2013 – Time to ovulate

    Unfortunately, unless you know exactly when you ovulated, it is really hard to pinpoint the days. The 7th seems a bit early and the 15th too late. Maybe you ovulate later or earlier that the half way point of your cycle.

  • em88

    Not to sure on ovulation date I track all periods on an app according to the app ovulation occurred on day 11 of my cycle which lands on the 13th of may

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, unless you are confirming the date with either ovulation prediction tests or basal temperature charting, the app is only an educated guess. The 7th of May is the educated guess based on that date. You won’t be able to tell for sure though unless you get a paternity test.

    I’ve tried to do research found the 7th could for for 5-3-1 method or all fertile days for having sex methods but 15th could also fit for the sperm meets egg method, not sure if you are familiar with these methods all very hard to see for sure as you said I’m so disappointed that this has happened I’m so upset at myself others keep saying not to be embarrassed and that this happens to many people but can help but judge myself, and the judging from others that will surely get thrown at me

    Hey Vicki,
    I ovulated Feb. 3rd my husband and I decided since the day after ovulation isn’t the best we decided the days before ovulation would be a better try. We had intercourse Jan. 31st – Feb. 2nd, My cycles are usually 31 days average but I noticed that I ovulated on cycle day 24 meaning a longer cycle, with my luteal phase being 13-14days long. What are my chances of conceiving this cycle?

  • Cogirl112

    Hi, so my lip was May 19, trying to figure out what day I conceived! 4 weeks pregnant June 20. Had sex may 31, and June 4th all in my ovulation window! My cycles range from 21-28 days usually last 5-7 days. Which date do you think? My on said June 2nd but didn’t have sex that day?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Considering how widely your cycle varies, there is not real way to tell when exactly you ovulated unless you are certain of what day you ovulated on.

  • Jessica Ortega

    My period came june 6 and ended the 11th my cycles are usually 29-32. we had sex june 18 and june 20 im supposed to be ovulating today the 22nd could i still get pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s possible. Sperm can survive up to 5 days after ejaculation so there may be some waiting for the release of the egg.

  • Mrnetzone

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s possible but until you take a pregnancy test, there is no way to really tell.

    A WONDERFUL AND POWERFUL SPELL CASTER THAT HELP ME TO GET PREGNANT,,
    Testimony On A Spell Caster Who help me to get pregnant, So me and my HUSBAND have been trying for a baby for the last 2 years now and to all in vein. I don’t have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I’m ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 2 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to 9 months to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is was really hurting me so badly. My HUSBAND had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I’m thinking it could be a problem with me but I’ve never had any symptoms of any problems. My HUSBAND does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know I’m slightly overweight but that shouldn’t affect our chances too much,one faithful day my friend told me to contact a spell caster that help sister, then i contact the DR.Ehiaghe on this email: ehiaghespellhome@gmail.com . DR.Ehiaghe told us all our problem and promise to help us, he told us that 2 month later i will be pregnant, with the faith in me i believed him but my husband never believe. And after 2months later i was really pregnant and i gave birth to a set of twin, a girl and a boy. what a wonderful spell caster. Once again contact him with his email if you need any kind of help such as bring your ex back, curing of hiv and cancer i believe you can find a solution in him: ehiaghespellhome@gmail.com Thanks.

  • guest

    , I had sex on the 27th of may . My first day of my last peroid was the 17 . When did i become pregnant

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you only had sex on the 27th, then it would be around that time that you got pregnant. Sperm can survive up to 5 days after ejaculation so they can hang around until ovulation. If you have a normal 28 day cycle, you probably ovulated on May 31st.

  • Ronaldo Spelltemple

    I was having a problem with my wife because she saw me kissing an old time lady friend she was so angry and she left the house living my two kids for me……I was searching through the internet looking for help on how to get I back and I saw so many posts on how Dr Ronaldo is restoring broken relationship…..so I contacted him on ronaldospelltemple@gmail.com…….he brought my wife back to me under 24hours……am really pleased and thankful @ dr Ronaldo.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, it is hard to say when you will ovulate due to the fact that you have such a large variation. Your best bet would be to use ovulation test strips to figure out when you are actually ovulating.

    I have read testimonies about this great

    hi
    I ovulate on my 14the day of my cycle. but i intercourse on 15 and 16 of cycle.
    would it be possible to be pregnant?
    what will be my baby’s gender?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    The 15th may be a possibility but not likely. You really need to have sex before or on the day of ovulation in order to increase your odds of getting pregnant. As for gender, there is no way to tell.

  • jen

    Hi, I need help im really curious and have been wondering my last day of period was the 28 of last month me and my boyfriend had sexual intercourse twice while I was ovulating and he came in me both times and then two days later he did again he is on steroids and I was informed it messes up sperm count what are my chances of being pregnant? Im new to this lol thank you for any help .

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, unless he has a sperm test done, there is no way of knowing if his sperm has been affected by the steroids. If you don’t get pregnant after 6 months of unprotected sex, you might want to see if he will get checked out.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    The dates seem off. Perhaps that very light period was actually early pregnancy bleeding and you got pregnant in June instead?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unless you are tracking when you ovulate, there is no way for you to actually know for sure if you timed intercourse correctly in order to get pregnant.

  • lmeyer

    I kept testing negative until yesterday is it also possible that my ovulation came later than it was suppose to?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Most definitely the case if you only got your positive result yesterday. It would appear that you had sex on the day you ovulated.

I have two nice girl .i really love to have a boy this time .will it be boy this time or girl . Please let me know your opinion . Thanks

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It sounds like you were having early pregnancy bleeding and not a period on 5/27. Sorry, but there is no way for me to even guess if it will be a boy or a girl.

    Hi I’m new to this site. So i have a question. Okay Sunday August 24 i took the ovulation test and it told me i was. So me and my boyfriend had intercourse and he went inside and I’m suppose to ovulate 12-24 hrs later. It’s now Tuesday August 26. Is there a chance i could be pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You could be pregnant based on your timing but you won’t be able to tell via a pregnancy test for about 9 – 10 days.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Based on an average cycle length of 28 days, your timing is really off for getting pregnant this cycle. You would have had to have sex about 10 days earlier in order to be around the time you ovulate.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s a possibility.

  • anonymous
