How Long Following Ovulation Can A Human Egg Cell Can Survive
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

Hours/No: The sperm fertilize an egg over the course of a few hours.

24 hours or less: An oocyte can be fertilized for a maximum of 24 hours after ovulation, many believe only 10-12 hours.

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.

Talk to your dr about birth control options. ...Read more
Does egg white cervical mucus happen before ovulation or does it mean you are ovulating, if before how long can it start before ovulation takes place?
Mucous not ovulation: In someone who has classic 28-day cycles, the mucous you describe from the cervix does become more abundant prior to ovulation. Because sperm can live for 2 - 5 days in the female genital tract, the appearance of the cervical mucous precedes ovulation and points to the "fertile time" during the cycle. If one is doomed not to ovulate, the appearance of mucous has no meaning. ...Read more
We are trying to conceive. Had my Mirena out Sept 13. Took 35 for a period. Next cycles was 40 days. Ovulated ~day25. Are longer cycles bad for eggs?
35-40 day cycle: Periods after Mirena is "out" should be unaffected, and represent the individual pituitary output of the hormone which causes ovulation.
