4 days before ovulation whats the chances?


My partner and i will be going away (not until september) we will be together until CD13 or CD14 thats when he flies to New York for work and i fly home alone
i normally OV on CD17 so what can i do to maximise my chances of getting pregnant 3/4 days before OV.
i know i am asking in advance and i have 2 cycles before but i like to be prepared

i hope this makes sense, lol im sure it makes more sense in my head than it does now its written down.

Any help/advice would be great

Well, not sure if this will be of any help, as you probably know it already, but sperm can indeed survive up to 5 or 6 days with the right circumstances.

I'd say keep drinking loads of water and take extra care of your nutrition. They also say grapefruit juice is good to produce ewcm (didn't do much for me but every one is def. different).

Good luck to you

I think the whole point will be to try and create the best conditions for the in there . So since ewcm nourishes sperm, I suppose that's what you'll need to work towards to lol

Also, as I've found out today, love juice (aka arousal fluid) nourishes the spermies as well... if that gives you any ideas LOL!

Oh, mind you, I've read somewhere that you should stop drinking grapefruit juice after ovulation as it causes contractions... Not sure if this is valid, but thought I'd pass it on just in case...
