Had intercourse on ovulation night on the 7th can't get the morning after pill until the 11th what are my chances of not getting pregnant?

~85% chance it works: Some thoughts... Consider taking a morning-after pill as soon as possible, because the sooner the better. If no normal regular period comes in a couple of weeks, one can consider checking a urine pregnancy test. If having sex and not on a birth control pill or other reliable method, then a woman should always carry condoms wherever she goes (that means keeping them in her purse, pocket, etc...). ...Read more

A friend of mine is trying to get pregnant she had sex 10/4, 10/6, 10/7 her ovulation day was the eighth did she miss her chance of getting pregnant?

No: Having sex on the 3 days before ovulation is a good way to get pregnant. That's how people usually get pregnant.

Urine pregnancy tests are sold everywhere. ...Read more

Chance of getting pregnant during non-ovulation with correct condom usage.?

Very low: Correct condom usage is estimated to result in about 18 pregnancies per 100 women over a years time or 18%, regardless of ovulation.

My ovulation day is today my husband and I had sex at 12:20 this morning. What is my chance of getting pregnant??

How high is the chance of getting pregnant off precum when had sex the week which ovulation start but didn't cum. I am also on cryselle BC.

Birth control: If you have taken your BC correctly and reliably the failure chance would be between about 2-8%. Precum has not been studied for pregnancy, but should be treated as a risk. You don't ovulate while on birth control. Overall risk sounds very low, if you miss the period (on the pill-free week) do a pregnancy test. Good wishes. ...Read more

Does having sex everyday around the time of ovulation increases my chance of getting pregnant? Or his sperm will be too weak to travel to the egg?

Does having sex everyday around the time of ovulation increases my chance of getting pregnant? Or his sperm will be too weak to travel to the egg?

Should be fine: Most men can have sex every day and have enough total motile sperm for conception. Even though the sperm numbers may go down with sex everyday, motility or movement of the sperm goes up, so it tends to be a wash. Since sperm live in the reproductive tract for 3-4 days average, you can make love every other day around ovulation and be fine, unless you enjoy every day. Hope this helps. ...Read more
