Sex 3 days before ovulation, could i be PG?


Hi guys! So me and my husband had sex what i think was 3 days before i started ovulating. Im not too clued up on knowing when i ovulate etc (yet) & my periods neva seem to come on the same date every month but i put it on an online ovulation calculator when i came on my period last and it gave me an estimation of when i should ovulate.
Question is going by this... me & my hubby had unprotected sex 3 days before ovulation, then he had to work away for a week. Can i be pregnant? Also, i am due on my period 16th of this month, how soon can i take a HPT?
We both want a baby so a positive would be fantastic news for us
xx

You definitely can get pregnant if you had sex 3 days before ovulation since sperm usually live 2-3 days in the fallopian tubes (and sometimes longer). Obviously, it can increase your chances a bit if you do it a bit more often and closer to ovulation, but it's not impossible at all. I'd say your chances are especially good if you don't actually even know when you ovulated (those calculator things can give you a rough few days but they aren't especially accurate) so it's possible you actually ovulated earlier than you think. The early response tests are supposed to be accurate 4-6 days before your missed period, though of course, if you hold out a bit longer it might improve your chances of getting an accurate result. Good luck!

there's definitely a chance. as the poster above said sperm can live for up to 2-3 days sometimes up to 5 days. so because you had sex 3 days before ov, sperm may have been waiting for the egg! im in the same position as you. had sex 3 days before ov but not during ov! hopefully we caught the egg! good luck!x

I'm in the same boat. I know this post is from a few months back. I'm curious what everyone's results were? I have no idea when I ovulate. I'm not due to get my period for another 11 days. But for the past 2 days I've had cramping/pressure and urge to pee. But that's way to soon to know your pregnant. 3 days ago??

I am in the same boat as you. I am not sure when I ovulate either and I am also trying and hoping . I normally get PMS symptoms (like 5-6) 2-3 weeks prior to having my cycle and this month I just started to feel cramps today and I am due to start my cycle on 10/13 hope it doesn't come that would be great news. However I feel like my cycle is coming . I will keep my fingers crossed for both of us! :flower

Did you find out your results?
Have any of you found you were pregnant?
I always come upon these blogs but don't ever hear whether the results were positive. Please let me know your results. I'll post mine in about a week.

My cycles are usually right on schedule, including when I ovulate, if I do.
This time I ovulated 2-3 earlier and it was a surprise! I wasn't expecting to ovulate so early and my ex-husband and I had sex 3 days prior to ovulation. (We still love one another and have been seeing one another for 7 months)
Anyhow...I'm not sure if I could get pregnant because we tried for years. The only success was 3 years earlier with the help of AI. We miscarried at 10 wks. This time, I began feeling early symptoms about 4-5 days after ovulation.
So I decided to begin taking progesterone just in case and to help assist in maintaining a pregnancy, IF we in fact, are pregnant. The symptoms were there prior to beginning the progesterone and they are only getting stronger.
Still not sure myself if it's possible but considering the symptoms before the medicine, I'm thinking there is a strong chance.
I know the symptoms because I have two older children and have been pregnant a total of 7 times.
I should begin my cycle in 3 days since I ovulated earlier. Crossing my fingers.
