A 42-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I had intercourse 2 days ago and took a ovulation test today which is Sunday. It tested positive. Can I still get pregnant even if I don't have sex?

Possibly ovulation: Some women can get pain around the time of ovulation at times. Usually it only lasts a day or so. Pain won't prevent you from getting pregnant.
