I got a positive ovulation in the morning and we had sex that night (our first attempt) and I got pregnant. We ignored all the stories about the woman not going on top and no oral sex etc. (although I did turn round and put my feet on the bedroom wall for 5 minutes afterwards to make them swim better!! lol)
Ive heard its more likely to be a boy if you get pregnant on the day of ovulation as female sperm swim slower. Thats why all these celebrities that want girls are timing it so that they have sex prior to ovulation so that by the time they ovulate the girl sperm will get there!
If you get a positive opk on a monday it means that you are likely to ovulate anytime from that monday to the wednesday.........everyone will ovulate at a different time/different day so it is different for everyone.
By charting my temps and using opks I found I would actually ovulate 2 days after the positive opk.
I do agree it is best to have sex before ovulation to catch the egg, however that doesnt mean doing it before the +opk, before ovulation could be the day of the +opk and the day after it.
