Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Can you really get pregnant 4 days before ovulation? Everywhere else I have read says that sperm can only live for 3 days? I am so disappointed now!

Can you really get pregnant 4 days before ovulation? Everywhere else I have read says that sperm can only live for 3 days? I am so disappointed now!

Possible.: The sperm can live up to 5 days in the female genital tract, so it is possible (albeit unlikely) to get pregnant from unprotected vaginal intercourse 4 days before ovulation. Take Folic Acid >1 mg daily, check a home pregnancy test 1-10 days after a late/missed period and best of luck!

If you are fertile seven days before ovulation and you are intimate four days before ovulation can you get pregnant?

If you are fertile seven days before ovulation and you are intimate four days before ovulation can you get pregnant?

Yes: It's all a matter of semantics. Unless you're using contraception, you're considered fertile as long as you ovulate regularly. However, you won't get pregnant unless you have sex a few days before thru a few days after ovulation (sperm can live for several days inside you). So yes, you can get pregnant by engaging in unprotected sex 4 days prior to ovulation.

Is it possible to get pregnant four days after ovulation?

Is it possible to get pregnant four days after ovulation?

Yes: So if you are asking whether, in a month where you otherwise did not have sex, and then had sex 4 days after ovulation the answer is it is possible but not very likely. Usually after ovulation the egg only hangs around for 1-2 days, now...Sperm can last up to 7 days in the vagina and uterus so early sex can lead to pregnancy even if ovulation is much later.

I had unprotected sex when I was fertile four days before ovulation & the day of. Is it highly possible for me to get pregnant? I feel different

I had unprotected sex when I was fertile four days before ovulation & the day of. Is it highly possible for me to get pregnant? I feel different

Average possibility: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.

I want to get pregnat and have been trying for four months. And I want to get pregnant very fast. Anything I can do other than a ovulation kit.

I want to get pregnat and have been trying for four months. And I want to get pregnant very fast. Anything I can do other than a ovulation kit.

See a doctor: If you want to get pregnant very fast, the best way to do that is seeking for REI doctor's help. They may help to monitor your follicular development and use medication to trigger your ovulation, and give you specific time for intercourse. You will get pregnant very fast if both you and your partner are healthy.

Is it possible for you to get pregnant 4 days before ovulation?

Is it possible for you to get pregnant 4 days before ovulation?

Yes: Sperm may well survive 4 days in a woman's healthy cervical mucus. They may not have quite as good a chance of fertilizing a healthy egg as 'fresher' sperm, but it can still happen.

Can I get pregnant 4 days after ovulation?

Can I get pregnant 4 days after ovulation?

No, but: The window for implantation is very narrow. The egg remains fertilizable for only 12 hours or so once released. However, one cannot not always be certain when ovulation actually occurs, so it is not reliable to rely on this knowlege to prevent pregancy.

Can you still get pregnant if you had unprotected intercourse 3-4 days before ovulation?

Yes: Sperm can live 5 to 7 days in the female genital tract and still "do the job" they were made to do when ovulation shows up later. The word contraception is simple Contra means against, and ception means, well I think you get the idea just use it.
