When Is My Period Due After Ovulation
No: A woman cannot GET pregnant 3 days after ovulation, meaning her egg cannot get fertilized 3 days after ovulation. Her egg only lasts about one day, so it would have to be fertilized no later than 1 day after ovulation. The question she needs to answer for herself is, "When did I ovulate? " In real life, she does not know the answer. It is an estimated date, but tracking body temperatures can help. ...Read more
