Should be a Homerun: With good hearty sperm racing up the Fallopian Tubes right about now... I'd say your Egg has one heckuva a chance of meeting some handsome tailwagger! So is that good or bad? I'm assuming good....most people trying to avoid pregnancy would never time their intercourse to within 2 days of ovulation....but hey, bottles of wine and crazy nights is what makes the world's population become ever more!

Sex: I'm not sure if your trying to get pregnant or not but you need to understand that any form of unprotected sex especially near ovulation can lead to pregnancy . Go see your doctor and talk about birth control or see a fertility expert :)

A 30-year-old female asked:

What's the chances of getting pregnant? Had sex twice in one day five days before ovulation

Depends: Depends on if your partner has a normal sperm count, how sure you are of ovulation, how "fertile" you are… 5 days prior to ovulation is unlikely as sperm usually are vibrant for 72 hours at max, so should be in the clear, but ovulation is not easy to pinpoint.

Small: The risk is small if you have taken all the other pills at the same time every day and took that 1 as soon as you remembered but that risk is not zero. Try setting the alarm in your phone to help you remember from now on.

Good Chance.: The sperm can live for 7 additional days. If the sperm fertilizes the egg in the fallopian tube after ovulation, then you can get pregnant. Please take a pregancy test within 1 week and f/u with ob/gyne if needed.
