Can You Get Pregnant From Intercourse After Ovulation?

Getting Pregnant 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?

  • Vickie B.

    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

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • 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!

  • 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..

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • H

    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

  • 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

  • unsure

    I’m pretty sure I ovulated on wed july 21 and we had sex on friday july 23. My next pd should be Monday aug 5. Could I be pregnant?

  • unsure

    I’m pretty sure I ovulated on wed july 24 and we had sex on friday July 26. Could I be pregnant?

  • Vickie B.

    ? It looks like you posted twice with two different dates. Which one is right?

  • Vickie B.

    See comment below.

  • miggy

    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?

  • 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..

  • es

    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.

  • Vickie B.

    Yes, you can get pregnant on the ovulation day.

  • Vickie B.

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

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Vickie B.

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

  • BLAH87


  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • Francesca

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Em88

    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?

  • Kade

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • 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

    Okay so I had my period on june 10th-13 then ovulated on the 28th but didnt have sex till the 29th. Its been two weeks now and im due to start my period on July 12th but all this week ive been cramping which I usually dont start cramping till the day before my period or the day of. My nipples have been tingly and soar on and off and ive been getting really bad heartburn and nausea but no vomiting. Can I be pregnant?

  • Vickie B.

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

    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: . 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: 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

  • 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… I contacted him on…….he brought my wife back to me under 24hours……am really pleased and thankful @ dr Ronaldo.

  • 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 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?

  • 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 .

  • 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.

  • Vickie B.

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

  • 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?

  • 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.

Iam pregnant and the scan told me iam 12weeks and three days so iam very confuse now it means I was pregnant even before my period is it pssebil ? 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

  • 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.

  • Dolores Rivera

    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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Vickie B.

    It’s a possibility.

  • anonymous

    I dnt xactly remember da very first day but it had to b around the 14th of feb iwas on my period . I had sex the 25th .. n also the 7th of march .. which day was i most likely to conceive ?

  • totie

    I ovulated august 27 an had sex august 30 & 31st could I be pregnant?

  • Vickie B.

    If you are certain you ovulated on the 27th, then no, you will not be pregnant from having sex on the 30th.

  • Aid

    Hi, I had my period on 8/23 only lasted 1 1/2day. we had unprotected sex on 8/31. Could i be pregnant??

    Hi Vick . I had my period May 27( 5 days) , June 26 (5 days) , July 25 ( 5 days) and August 25 ( 5 days) I had unprotected sex Sept 1 , 2, 5, 8, and 10 . We are trying to get pregnant after having a miscarriage on November 14, 2013 at 18 weeks . Is it possible for us to conceive in one of those days . Thanks in advance And God bless you.

  • Vickie B.

    Looks like you may have timed it well. Our ovulation calendar shows these results.:

    Monday 25th August 2014 – First day of your cycle
    Monday 8th September 2014 – A little bit fertile
    Tuesday 9th September 2014 – Fertile
    Wednesday 10th September 2014 – VERY fertile
    Thursday 11th September 2014 – Time to ovulate
    Sunday 21st September 2014 – A home pregnancy test may work now.

    Good luck!

    alright guys. My period was August 16th and I had sex with a guy on the 26th but then I had sex with another guy (who I have been with for 6 years, and yes I know I’m a horrible person) on the 30th 1st 2nd and 3rd of September. Who’s baby is it? It said I ovulated the 30th but when I did it here it said I was only fertal the 27th through the 2nd because I have a 29 cycle. Now I’m pregnant so… Who is my safest bet? Thanks so much!

  • Germera

    My cycle came on September 21 normally lasts about 5/7 days so wen will I be ovulating?? And wen is it best to have sex?

  • curious mind

    Hi im just curious. .. my lmp was aug 28 and my ov predictor test was positive on sept 10 but my husband and I did dtd until 11th … I checked to see if I was pregnant sept 20th but it was negative … could I still be pregnant… did I check to early

  • Vickie B.

    It really depends of it you have a normal 28 day cycle. If you do, you should have ovulated around the 6th. If you have a longer cycle, there is a chance that you were ovulating when you were having sex.

  • Vickie B.

    If you have normal 28 day cycles, you should have ovulated 14 days after your period started which would have been August 30th. The guess would be the second guy.

  • Vickie B.

    Timing for having sex was good for getting pregnant. It looks like you tested a bit early. Test again in a day or two.

  • curious mind

    I checked today which is sept 21 and its still negative :(

  • curious mind

    Can it just become positive the next day after a negative. … im suppose to get my menstrual September 23rd … so it might just stay negative im guessing

  • Vickie B.

    All you can really do is wait until your period is late then. If it doesn’t come around when it supposed to and you still keep gettinging negative tests, you should see your doctor to find out what is going on with your system.

  • Vickie B.

    There is not enough information here to determine when you will most likely be ovulating. You need to go to the ovulation calendar and figure it out.

  • Mary Katlyn

    I had sex the last 3 days of ovulation, and 2 times on day of. After ovulation I checked my cervix and it was low and hard, now I check it and it’s higher up and feels kinda soft kinda hard. I have a lot of white gooey cream every day. A few days ago I had cramps in my lower stomach for like 15 minutes then just nothing. My breasts feel heavier and just look bigger, I’m constantly tired like with no energy. I miscarried in early July, my periods due this Saturday. Could I be pregnant? And is it too early for a test because I’m tired of waiting for an answer-I just wanna know already.

  • curious mind

    my menstrual did come on the 22nd but it was way light that usual but I don’t think I’m pregnant but I will try again next month because I want another boy

  • Vickie B.

    The timing was right so it is a possibility. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if you will.

  • Vickie B.

    Unless you are using ovulation predictors tests, there is no way to tell when you ovulated because your cycle fluctuates. Unless you know when you are ovulating, you will have a hard time figuring out when to have sex to get pregnant.

  • Vickie B.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Saturday has passed. Did you test and are you pregnant?

    Hey I had sex on the 4 of jan and then on the 16 or17 of jan I’m due October 8th the dr said I ovulated on the 15th but I didn’t have sex until the 16or 17th my husband and I are confused on when we got pregnant bc he was deployed from the 4th to the 16 and he’s thinking otherwise lol. I know his sperm didn’t last that long I keep telling him it’s when he came back

  • Vickie B.

    Unless the doctor actually used an ultrasound to see when you ovulated, he can be off. All he needed was to be off by a day. The 16th or the 17th could have been the day you conceived.

  • sussane

    Hello… I need some suggestions. My last period was 10 september after a 25 days cycle, then I had eex on 24 september a day after my ovulation period, is there any possibility I could be pregnant and I have even missed my period which was due on 5th october

  • Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, if you ovulated on around the 21st of September (you ovulate 24 to 36 hours after a positive ovulation test) you had sex too late to get pregnant. You need to have sex BEFORE you ovulated in order to get pregnant.

  • Vickie B.

    Considering healthy sperm can survive up to 5 days after ejaculation, you timed it pretty good. Good luck!

  • Vickie B.

    Well, until you get your period, you can’t rule out pregnancy. The timing is just about right so it is possible. Did you take a pregnancy test?

  • Mai

    Hi can I check, I had sex with my husband between 1st to 4th October. and my period was from 19th – 23rd September. I made a urine test with the pregnancy kit this morning and its -ve. Does that mean i am not pregnant or i tested it too early? Please advise.

  • Vickie B.

    If your cycles are about 28 days long, you should have ovulated around the 3rd of October. If you did ovulate then, you timed intercourse perfectly. Considering your period is due around the 17th, it looks like you tested a little early. Try again in a day or two or, better yet, wait until your period is late.

    Hi vickie,

    My period came 2 days earlier which is on the 17 and it only lasted 2 day. After which it was followed by a brown discharge. I tried to test it however its -ve. Could you advise me?

  • Vickie B.

    It is unlikely as you did get your period even if it was shorter than normal. You usually ovulate about 14 days after your period starts and sperm survives in your reproductive tract and maximum of 5 days.

  • Vickie B.

    I would say that you conceived on the 25th. The egg usually survived about 24 hours after you ovulate so it appears you timed it perfectly. Congratulations!!

  • Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, due to your irregular periods, it is hard to say what is going on with your system. If the tests keep showing negative, I would say that this month isn’t your month. You might want to try getting your hormones sorted out so you have regular cycles. There are many herbal fertility supplements available that can help.

  • Vickie B.

    The egg only survives about 24 hours after you have ovulated. If you consider your fertile window to be the time after you see a positive on a ovulation test, then it would be possible as ovulation tests let you know that you will be ovulating 24 to 36 hours after you see the positive result.

  • mashana

    if i ovulated on the 5th and had sex on the 13th could i be pregnant

  • Vickie B.

    With the dates you listed, no you would not get pregnant.
    Usually, you can only get pregnant from sex about 4 days before you ovulate and a day after you ovulate.

  • Vickie B.

    It sounds like you are not pregnant based on the negative pregnancy test results. If you are concerned, make an appointment with your doctor.

  • Janice

    First day of my period is oct 11 (28 cycle)we had sex oct 25 unprotected sex do you think I’m gonna get pregnant?

  • Vickie B.

    Use our ovulation calendar to find out what it says :)

  • nikkiS

    Hi me and my finance are trying to have a baby. My cycle started Oct 19 and going by my ovulation app I ovulated Nov 1-5. We were intimate Nov 1,2,6 , would there be any possibility for pregnancy? Thanks for your help!

  • Felisa Williams

    Ms.Vickie hi. My last cycle was on Oct 3 and my husband and I had sex pretty much everyday after I went off. It is now the 8th of November and no period. On the 3rd and 4th I only saw a light pink color when I wiped after using the rest room. I’ve had 3 bfn but my body is slick telling me other wise.

  • Vickie B.

    Your timing sounds right so all you can do now is wait until you can take a pregnancy test! Our ovulation calendar says that you should be able to test Friday 14th November 2014. Good Luck!

  • Vickie B.

    I’d wait a couple of days and test again if your period doesn’t arrive. If your period still doesn’t arrive, maybe a visit to the doctor is in order unless you can identify anything that may have caused it to be late.

    Me and my bf had sex and he “cumed” in me . I had my last period 2weeks ago & this happen Sunday . I just got my period yesterday witch means I’m 14days early. Could I be pregnant ?

  • sia

    Hi Vickie,
    Generally i have a 28 days cycle. My last period was on 27th Oct and it lasted for 4 days which as usual so my ovulation day would be on the 14 th day and me and my hubby had intercourse on that very same day and two days after the ovulation day. Can i become pregnant? We really want kids.

  • Vickie B.

    If it was 14 days early, I would guess that you didn’t get a full period type of bleeding. You may have seen ovulatory bleeding when you ovulated. If that is the case, the potential for pregnancy is there.

  • Vickie B.

    Well, I am not sure of how you are calculating. Are you sure your cycle is 28 days long? If you go to our ovulation calculator you can figure out the times when you would have been ovulating and then you can see if you had sex at the right time. If you did have sex on the day you ovulated then, yes, there is a chance that you could get pregnant.

  • sia

    Thank you so much vickie for taking your time and replying me. I did go throught he link that you send its really very helpful. It surely will help me understand many things better now. I will still keep writing to you and clear my doubts but first let few days go by and then let me see whether i am pregnant or no as its still time to come to come unto a conclusion right.

  • Anon

    I do not have a clock-work cycle. it varies. But I typically have a period once a month so I would guess it varies between a 27 and 32 day cycle.
    Anyway, My last period was around October 24th. I had unprotected sex using the pull-out method on November 10th. It is now November 14th and I just feel different.
    In my last pregnancy I knew and tested positive for pregnancy at 3 weeks after first day of last period. So im used to knowing pretty early on when I am pregnant, but I know this is just crazy and it is too early to test.
    with the fact that my last period was October 24th that would mean today is 3 weeks, but that cant be right when the sex only occurred 4 days ago right?

  • Sweety21

    Hey Vickie. Lmp was june tenth. Had sex june 19, 20. Calendar says I ovulated on the 24th of june. I have a pretty regular cycle of about 28days. I also had sex on the first of july. We are trying to see which date resulted in our little girl that’s on the way. Due date March 17th. Guess I am questioning the accuracy of the calender really.

  • Tweety19

    So me and my partner are expecting a girl due in march. I supposedly ovulated on june 24 following my period on june 10. We had sex june 19, 20. And Then on July 1st. I am arguinghim ddown that it was our weekend at the lake in june. He swears the first and that it was closer to my ovulation date. Any help on whose right.

  • Devina6

    So did you get pregnant?

  • Chelleylove

    My Period was from November 2-5. I have an app that calculates my ovulation day and my fertile days so it told me Nov. 12 was my ovulation day. I had sex twice on Nov. 14 and once on Nov 15. I have been feeling nauseous, my boobs hurt and I’m very tired. I am 8days away from my getting my period, do you think I might be pregnant and is it too early to take a test?

  • April

    Can someone knowledgeable please help me out with this confusion lol. Ok so Ive been on Depo since May-July2014 and I didn’t go back for my second shot. Before that I was free of any birth control since Oct 2013. I had a cycle for August,September,and October; came on different days due to my body getting back on track. It came Oct 28th I don’t remember how many days I was I usually don’t go more than 4 days does that matter? .Anywho I’ve never been pregnant before idk how fertile iam, idk how many days are in my cycle month and I also don’t know how accurate the ovulation calendar/calculaton really is due to my outta wack periods. According to the ovulation calculator my ovulation started nov7-13 I had unprotected intercourse on nov 15 could I possibly be pregnant? What’s next? What should I expect? Im very curious thanks to all ill
    appreciate any advice.

  • Vickie B.

    Most likely you wouldn’t be feeling the effects of pregnancy that quickly. A week has passed, did you take a pregnancy test yet?

  • Vickie B.

    If you did ovulate on the 24th, the 19th and the 20th would me the time when you would have gotten pregnant.

  • Vickie B.

    Did the app say that you were starting to be fertile on the 12th or that you had ovulated? If it said you ovulated on the 12 you may have been too late to conceive. If you were fertile then, the chance is there. You could probably test on the 23rd and see what the pregnancy test says.

  • Vickie B.

    How long your menstrual flow goes for doesn’t matter in the calculations. If you did ovulate when the app said you did, then you have a chance of getting pregnant. If you did get pregnant this month, you should be able to take a pregnancy test around the 26th of this month.

  • MendME

    My last period was from Nov 9 to Nov 15. The app said that I hav ovulated last Nov 23. Me and my boyfriend had sex this Nov. 25. I am 12 days before my period. Am I pregnant and when can I have a test?

  • manjooru

    What are my chances to get pregnant if I had unprotected sex at 2 am and my ovulation was day before.

  • nell

    I gotten off birth control in may. I was on the depo. I had my first period for the first time October 13th and it went off October 23rd. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on November 6th. I haven’t seen my period this month. I’m having prgenancy symptoms. I took a prgenancy test and it said negative but I’m still having pregnancy symptoms. Could I be pregnant?

  • nell

    I went to the hospital today. Because of my symptoms which are nausea vomiting sore breast constipation headaches and cramps. Told them I miss my period n still haven’t seen it this month and this month is about to end. They did a pregnancy test and ithe came back negative. The Dr told me I could be pregnant and to see my family doctor. I’m so confuse. In the past I always had a miscarriage after becoming seven weeks expect for my last. I’m on thyroid medicine and I’m scared I might be an causing harm. I just need an answer. Like I said I was on depo 7 months ago could that be making me feel this way. I’m high risk…. so I want to make sure I’m not losing my mind.

  • Vickie B.

    If you are sure you ovulated on the 23rd, you are probably not pregnant. The egg deteriorates quickly and usually lasts 24 hours or less after ovulation. If you had sex on the 25th, that would have been too late. If you were pregnant, the earliest you should take a pregnancy test would be the 4th or 5th of December.

  • Vickie B.

    It’s possible, but it depends on how quickly your egg started deteriorating.

  • Vickie B.

    I am sorry this is so stressful for you. Unfortunately, I can’t offer much help. You have tons of stuff going on and sitting down and explaining it all to your family doctor might be the best course of action. If you are high risk, you would think that an OB/GYN would be a better fit for this issue.

  • nell

    Thank you another thing is it possible I could of gotten pregnant if my period ce on October 13 and went off October 23 and had unprotected sex on Nov 6

  • Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, it’s hard to say. If you were having regular 28 day cycles, I would say probably not. In a 28 day cycle, you would ovulate on cycle day 14 (where the first day of your period is day 1). You would have ovulated on Oct 27 if you had a normal 28 day cycle and wouldn’t have gotten pregnant from sex on Nov. 6.

  • MendME

    Hi is it normal for me to have cramps with interval, sore breast, and bloating?? Are these signs that my period is coming?

  • MendME

    And also I have a very large acne last sunday.

  • Vickie B.

    They can be. You would have to compare it to how you have been with previous periods to find out if the symptoms are normal for you.

  • MendME

    Well my cramps seems to be a little off. But thank you very much for the advice

  • MendME

    Is it possible that every month I have a different symptoms of PMS. Like for today I have an increase in urination. Please Help.

  • Vickie B.

    I would think it is possible but you might want to contact your doctor if you are really concerned.

  • janelle

    Hi my name is janelle trying to get pregnant for the longest while and nothing isn’t happening one month will see my period on the 5th next may see it on the 8th don’t no what’s happening

  • blondy

    I have a 28 day cycle I’ve had unsafe sex on day 14 18 n am bleeding lightly day 20 can I be pregnant

  • Vickie B.

    It just sounds like you have an irregular cycle. You should probably think about taking a fertility supplement like FertilAid to regulate your cycle.

  • Vickie B.

    If you had sex around ovulation, which it looks like you did, yes the possibility of being pregnant is there.

  • donbon

    If I ovulate on the 11th and had sex on the 8th could I get pregnant? Thanks

  • suzan perez

    hello everyone, i am here to share my testimony on how i conceived my baby. i have been married to my husband for 18years without no issue. my husband has been tested OK, i too have been tested. but no issue. i had problems with my in-laws even my husband started to have new affairs aside your marriage. it was a very terrible thing to bear. i became a laughing stock among my pear, i prayed and fasted and nothing happened. i was now seen as always unhappy. after many medical treatment and there is no way. i took it as i was born barren and i accepted every challenge that comes my way. i was even ready to pack out of my marital home and stay on my own because my husband was not given me any attention that i needed from him. i decided to focus on my job and try to live happy on my own.
    on this faithful day, i decided to check the net for updates on healthy living and i came across a story of a man who Dr EDIONWE helped his wife to conceive a baby. i decided to put a try because this has been my greatest problem in life. today i am a proud mom. words will not be enough to explained what this man did for me. he casted a pregnancy spell on me and i noticed i was pregnant on the 7th day after the spell. i am a happy mother, the pride of my family, a miracle in my town. i know there is someone in same condition and you feel there is no way. i urge you to contact him via email This is the solution to every single mother around the globe. distance is not a barrier, he will surely make your dreams come trough. contact him today via email: you want your lover back or any other miracle in your life, contact him today so the world can be a better place to live. bye!!!

  • Vickie B.

    Yes it is possible. Sperm can survive up to 5 days, in your reproductive system, after ejaculation.

    Hey vickie! My cycle is usually 30-35 days lmp was nov9-13.. Had intercourse last dec5 and 14, i still dont have my period. Should i do the test already?

  • Vickie B.

    If your cycle is 35 days long, you should be able to test already and get accurate results. Based on our ovulation calendar, if you have a normal cycle, you would have ovulated on November 29th. Having sex on the days you listed above wouldn’t have gotten you pregnant because it was too far after ovulation.

    Hi thank you for your advice it really helped me a lot. I would like to ask this because me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex today and it’s my 6th and last day of my period. I would like to ask if today was a safe time to have sex?

  • Destiny

    I have a 30 day cycle i ovulated on November 26 had sex before that with the same guy and that exact day and then with someone else on December 2 i am pregnant but i wanted to know when i got pregnant i took a test on December 12 and it was a clear positive.

  • Vickie B.

    How do you know you ovulated on the 26th? When was the first day of your last period?

  • Shandera Lovingme Davis

    My period ends on Christmas Day and I have sex on the 27th and the 28th and my low fertile days are on the 29th and 30th how long would it take for me to get pregnant if my most fertile day is on the 31st and the 1st of January and my ovulation day is on the 2nd will sperm be waiting to fertilize my egg if I had sex only on the 27th and 28th?

  • Shandera Lovingme Davis

    Valerie you should not have sex after your ovulation date because you would miss your day of conceiving u should look up a free ovulation test to see what days you are ovulating u should have sex 6 days before ovulation or up to it and u will increase your chances of getting pregnant

  • Ashley

    Hello my name is Ashley and I feel like I’m pregnant but I haven’t taken a test ive had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on November 28 which was the last day of my period and threw December 8 which was the day after ovulation Am I pregnant?

  • sia

    Hi Vickie,
    Thanks for the link that you send me last month. It is really very helpful. I have to correct myself here with regards to my period cycle. Its a 32 day cycle. I checked it out very careful for every month and got it right as 32 days cycle. Now my last preiod was on the 28th Nov it lasted for 4 days and we had intercourse from 8th Dec to 15 th Dec everyday once. As i already mentioned that we want kids so is there a chance of me being pregnant? And yesterday i do not know i felt a lot of mucous forming in my vagina. Does this indicate anything?

  • Vickie B.

    We have a good ovulation calendar here on BabyHopes :)

  • Vickie B.

    How long are your cycles? How many days are between the day you start bleeding to the day before your next period starts? That will help to calculate when you are ovulating and help you pinpoint when to have sex.
