I bd'd 2x Wednesday and once today (having o pain). Is the day of o pain too late? I read somewhere that most pregnancies result from bd'ing the day before ovulation. I do not know if it's really true or not, but it is something about the sperm not having time to make it to the egg on o day. Will I ever get this ttc right? lol. You would think 13 months would be enough to get it.
I have done a lot of research of this so-called "fertility window." I think it's best to BD a couple of days before you ovulate, the day of, and the day after. That might be wrong, but meh. If you try to have sex the day of ovulation, it may be too late. The egg could have died off by the time the sperm gets to its destination.
"Knowing your time of ovulation is crucial to successful conception. Your fertile period starts about 4-5 days before ovulation, and ends about 24-48 hours after it. This is because sperm can live in your body for approximately 4 to 5 days, and the egg can live for 24 to 48 hours after being released. Maximum fertility is reached during the period of 24 hours before ovulation and 24 hours afterwards. To increase your chances of getting pregnant, you should time intercourse to occur during this 'fertile window'."
I usually have + opks for a couple of days, but after the day I have the pain the opk will begin to fade. When I've done my basal temp., it shows I o the day of the pain. Oh well, maybe next month. This is exhausting.
