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. The egg is only able to be fertilized for about 12-18 hours, so we usually recommend sex every 2 days during the fertile week to make sure sperm are in the tube when the egg ovulates. Ovulation can occur between day 6-21 and about 3% of ovulations occur during the days of the expected menses. This happens because cycles vary so much. Best. ...Read more

This is an ovulation question. How long does the female egg live before being fertilized by spermatozoa? What's the window
24 hours or less: An oocyte can be fertilized for a maximum of 24 hours after ovulation, many believe only 10-12 hours. Technically that's not quite the same as saying 24 hours after detection of an lh surge. It's much shorter than most realize, the idea of "4-5 fertile days" is not biologically correct at all, it's a simplification for timing strategy at home. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I had sex with my boyfriend the day I calculated to be my ovulation day, how long til the egg is fertilize and when should I do a home test?
7-10 days after: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...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?
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
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
