Had Sex 18 Hours Before Ovulation

Sandy asks…

ok buht iv’e been trying to have a baby we’ve been haven sex a week straight n then two days in a row before?

my period came do think i can get -r be pregant

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Mere unprotected sex for a week and then two days in a row DO NOT guarantee a conception.
Unprotected sex at the time of ovulation, increases the chances of pregnancy. Appending below some format to follow in order to get pregnant:
To get pregnant 3 things must take place:
I. The lady must ovulate
II. The Male partner must have enough number of motile spermatozoa, in his semen.
III. Unprotected sex must takes place within 24 hours of ovum release.

I have made few protocols to facilitate conception:
1. Please don’t rely on the Ovulation period or computer determination of the ovulation. They aren’t fool-proof. They just give an idea only. Therefore, get the help of the Ovulation Test Kits to determine your day of ovulation. In Ladies with REGULAR CYCLE You need to test from the 10th to 18th day of your cycle. (First day of bleeding is the First day of the cycle).
2. Unprotected sex on the day or on the eve or one day after ovulation will yield good result. So calm down and get yourself composed. Any form of STRESS will get you away from your goal.
- Plan a vacation, far away from the madding crowd, coinciding with your ovulation period. Suggest natural water fall or mountainous resort.
3. Get your hubby’s seminal fluid examined by a reputable laboratory. Your hubby needs three days of sexual absenteeism (including masturbation) for the test. Since spermatozoa are easily perishable outside the reproductive system, your hubby has to go the laboratory, masturbate and ejaculate into the sterile container and hand over then and there, for the examination.
- Plus some fine tips below, to follow:
i. Determine your ovulation day, using the Ovulation kit.
Ii. Coincide unprotected sex to the Ovulation (Eve / on the very day of ovulation / the very following day after ovulation ). Ovum released can survive only for 24 hours.
Iii. Plenty of love making / foreplay prior to the actual act, because that will well lubricate your reproductive tract and remove the Vaginal acidity. Vaginal acidity can destroy the spermatozoa.
Iv. Elevate your Pelvis, with a pillow, at least prior to ejaculation. . Missionary position with your legs on your hubby’s shoulder. This will provide a deep penetration and deposition of semen deep inside the vagina, almost at the lips of the cervix and to ensure the smooth flowing of semen into the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes.
V. Try to reach climax/female orgasm at the time of ejaculation, so that your cervix will literally suck in all the ejaculatory fluid. For completion sake, I had given the additional benefits of female orgasm below

a. If your orgasm is always late or your hubby is having premature ejaculation, begin the sex in Reverse missionary (with you on the top).
B.Reverse Missionary aids in two ways-
Firstly the women will attain orgasm earlier because of the stimulation of G spot
Secondly it also delays the premature ejaculation
orgasm keeps a woman lying down after sex, passively retaining sperm and increasing her probability of conception. . British biologists, Robin Baker and Mark Bellis team counted sperm from over 300 instances of human copulation and found that a woman climaxes any time between a minute before to 45 minutes after her lover ejaculates, retains significantly more sperm (In non orgasmic, she hardly retain any sperm)..

Vi. Try to lie on your back for at least 4 to 5 hours after sex, so that even the slow-moving or the late comer spermatozoa too will find the way into the female reproductive system.
Vii. Strictly no washing, immediately after sex, especially on or around the day of ovulation.

Last but not the least, Sincere Prayers to the Almighty

Good luck and God Bless you

Hello All,

Hope your all well? So to make this easy i’ll keep it short. I’ve been trying to conceive since Sept 2012 it’s not been long. I took ovulation tests at the start where i got positive’s but didn’t get pregnant. I didnt take anymore tests after the first 2 months as they were so expensive to buy.

So before trying i used to be regular every 28 days. Now since trying i’ve become 31days.

Jan 5th 2013 i started my period it was late a couple of days thought i was pregnant but no. So tried again after my period same again every other day we tried. Now i’ve started my period 29th Jan 2013 so soon after. It is like a proper period so i know its not implantation bleeding. Anyone shed any light on why this has happned?

Also seeing as i have started again in the same month when am i likely to ovulate this time?

If anyone can help would really appreciate some feedback


Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Follow this for TTC
period start day is first day
Ovulation day is 14 days before next due date ur cycle is 24 days to 31 days
ur ovulation expected between 10th day to 17th day
and life of ova is 24 hours and of sperms 5 days,
ur fertile time will be from 5th day to 18th day
fertilization occurs on the day of ovulation and implantation after 8 to 9 days of fertilization then start production of hCG,which u use in pregnancy test
husband should not have sex or loose sperms for 5 days from start of period, this way the sperms will be of high quality and in high counts,
have sex multiple time means at least 2 times per day from 5 days before the ovulation day,
u should have pregnancy test a week after the missing of period on due date.

Mary asks…

Do ovulation tests really work?

Im trying to conceive and ive been having no luck so i was thinking about taking the ovulation tests? My sister said u start doing them the day you stop your period has anyone had luck with them or have any information on it? Or any tips to gettting pregnant trust me i need the help !?!?!?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Ovulation tests are very very accurate.

You should start testing 18 days before your expectant period if you have a regular cycle.

You can buy them online too for 1/10th the price of drug store brands, and they work just as well.

Remember, when you do get a positive ovulation test, it means you have up to 72 hours of fertility from that point on.

Other tips
-eat healthy, drink plenty of water (helps keep cervical mucus ideal for sperm)
-take prenatals before becoming pregnant
-lay down for at least 20 minutes after sex to give sperm time to liquefy
-orgasming will being more sperm into the uterus, so have fun.

Nancy asks…

Explain ovulation again please…!?

Okay. I feel like I’m dizzy. I’m reading too much info on conceiving and am starting to confuse myself! I’ve been reading that most women begin ovulating 10-14 days after the first day of their last period. So… that doesn’t mean you are “fertile” every day for a week correct? Don’t we only have a 24-72 hour period where a sperm can attach to the egg? So, I guess that fertile period occurs within those 10-14 days? It’s like a freaking guessing game. This is why they call babies miracles…

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Not quite correct.

You dont’ ‘begin ovulating.’ You ovulate ONE day. At some point in your cycle, the mature egg pops out of the ovary. For about 12-24 hours the egg is alive and able to be fertilized. If not fertilized at the end of that time-frame, it dies/disintegrates.

You are ‘fertile’ for about 3-5 days leading up to ovulation. This means that you have receptive cervical mucus, so sperm can swim through it into your tubes, and survive for a few days waiting for the egg.

So, for most women they have about a 4-6 day time frame when sex can lead to pregnancy — from about 5 days before ovulation through the day OF ovulation. But there is only about a 12-24 hour time frame when actual conception can occur.

And no, you aren’t fertile for 10-14 days after your period. You are (usually) fertile for about 12-18 days before your NEXT period. Most women ovulate about 2 weeks (12-16 days in the great majority of cases) before their NEXT period — which is only 2 weeks after your last period if you have textbook 28 day cycles. (The luteul/post-ovuatory phase is pretty consistant. The pre-ovulatory phase can vary quite a bit.)

So — if you have regular periods, do your own calculations. Count back 16 days from the expected date of your next period. That’s the earliest time you are likely to ovulate. Count back another 5 days from there. That’s your fertile range. Then try to ‘try’ every 2-3 days (remember, sperm can live in your body for a few days, so you dont’ have to have sex on the precise day), from that point until about 10 days before your next period is due. That should cover all your bases and … With a little luck … You’ll be pregnant within 3-4 months.

(Even if everything is timed perfectly there’s still only about a 20-30% chance of pregnancy.)

Betty asks…

Ovulation and pregnancy?

If I ovulate on day 14 then have intercourse on day18 can I get pregnant what if I ovulated on day 15 or 16 and had intercourse on day 18 what are the chances? Please be specific as to which day you are answering to. I’m not sure what day I actually ovulated on.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

The first poster is flat out WRONG!

Sperm can live in the female body for up to 5 days with 3 days being the average (if a woman is fertile). Once a woman ovulates teh egg only lives for 12-24 hours.

Therefore you would have to have sex BEFORE you ovulated or within 12-24 hours of ovulation and even if you did it after ovulation but within the 24 hours max shelf life of an egg, chances are slim because it takes time for the sperm to swim up into the fallopian tube where the egg would get fertilized.

SO short answer, no.

You almost certainly cannot get pregnant from having sex on teh 18th if you ovulated somewhere between teh 14th and 16th day.
