How long does an egg survive after ovulation?

How long does an egg survive after ovulation?

About a day: Women don't know exactly when they ovulate, so it's always an estimate. After ovulation, her egg will be fertile for about a day. That means she is truly fertile during just one of those days in her "fertile period". She should have sex throughout her "fertile period" so live sperm will just be hanging around waiting for the egg to pop out, at which time she will truly be fertile, for about a day. ...Read more

How long after ovulation does the egg stay viable? I've heard 24 hours? Am I safe if I waited about a week and a half to have sex after ovulating?

How long after ovulation does the egg stay viable? I've heard 24 hours? Am I safe if I waited about a week and a half to have sex after ovulating?

Less than 24 hours: Probably less than 24 hours after ovulation. You should not get pregnant from sex a week and a half after you ovulate. Sometimes you can ovulate later than expected or miscalculate when you ovulate, so avoiding sex around the time of ovulation is not a great birth control method, especially if you're 18. Talk to your dr about birth control options. ...Read more

Have u heard of a product called fertilaid. Will it cause me to produce multiple eggs during ovulatio. I desire fraternal twins. I've no issues ovulating?

No: There is no evidence at all to recommend it. Until they show some studies to support their claims, i'd consider it 100% waste of money. There is no evidence - and no reason at all to believe - Fertilaid will cause multiple ovulations, I likely has no impact on ovulation whatsoever. Good wishes. ...Read more

I had a peak fertility on my digital opk cd 11-12. On cd 17 I had egg white mucus. When did I ovulate? Was opk wrong?

The opk may be wrong: The digital lh monitors are good but there can be false positives. On the other hand clear cervical mucus is a good but not perfect sign of high estradiol usually from ovulation but can be from an ovarian cyst. Consider working with a physician to check via ultrasound or blood to better know your cycle if this happens repetitively. Also when the next cycle comes or you have a +preg test will help ...Read more
