If I most likely ovulated the 21st, having unprotected sex on 25th I most likely wouldnt have conceived. Right?

If I most likely ovulated the 21st, having unprotected sex on 25th I most likely wouldnt have conceived. Right?

Correct: To start a baby, semen (sperm) should get into one's vagina during the few days before ovulation, because the egg is only fertile for about 1 day after ovulation. That being said, life can be full of surprises... which is why fertile couples who have sex tend to get pregnant. ...Read more

At mid night of 21st nov we have done unprotected sex, After how many days do i get to know that I have conceived & what early symptoms of it.

At mid night of 21st nov we have done unprotected sex, After how many days do i get to know that I have conceived & what early symptoms of it.

3 weeks: 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. ...Read more

Is it likely that I conceived a few days before my cycle since I had unprotected sex May 1-5 and had a normal cycle on May 13th. I'm 6 weeks and 2 day?

Is it likely that I conceived a few days before my cycle since I had unprotected sex May 1-5 and had a normal cycle on May 13th. I'm 6 weeks and 2 day?

How it works: No. If you had a regular period after sex that represents not being pregnant. If you have not had an ultrasound yet to confirm your dates then you cannot in any way say when you conceived. Here is a good guide to use, but I would recommend that you base your dates upon the ultrasound when you have one at the OBs: http://www.babymed.com/conception-calculator. ...Read more

Lmp: 10/25/14-10/29/14. Average 34 day cycles. I've had unprotected sex with the same guy on the 31st, 2,3,4,5,9,& 11. When was I likely to conceive?

Lmp: 10/25/14-10/29/14. Average 34 day cycles. I've had unprotected sex with the same guy on the 31st, 2,3,4,5,9,& 11. When was I likely to conceive?

Around November 14: With 34-day cycles, ovulation would be expected 2 weeks before the first day of bleeding of the upcoming period. That means ovulation is around cycle day 20 (because 20+14 = 34). In this case, day 20 would be November 14, which matches well enough with having sex on November 11. As always in life, pregnancy dates are estimates. Since there is only one guy involved, the close dates don't matter. ...Read more
