Can you still get preg. 2-3 days after Ovulation?


Hello ladies,

If I ovulated and had clear discharge ( the fertile discharge ) on Sunday. When my fiance came back out of town on Tuesday and had sex is there any possibility I can still get pregnant?

I am pretty sure an ovum can only survive for 24 hours. So if that is true you should be ok.

If you're only basing your OV day on discharge, you should know that some women don't ovulate until a few days after the last day they see EWCM. The egg usually only last 24 hours after OV, but I have heard in rare cases up to 48.

So yes, you could indeed get pregnant.
You're told to wait 4 days after the last day of fertile CM to have sex if you want to avoid getting pregnant and if that is the only sign you are using to track fertility.

eggs deteriorate significantly in the first 12 hours after they are released. they are deteriorated 50% or more after 24 hours...it takes an average of 6 hours for sperm to go from your vagina, through your cervix, up your tubes to your egg...so the best way to get pregant is to have the sperm waiting for your fresh egg. you will most likely NOT get pregnant 2 days after ovulation. the chance is almost zero.

That is true assuming she actually OV'd when she thinks she did. Without knowing 100% that she OV'd on that day than it's possible she was not 2 days past OV and therefore pregnancy would be possible.

she asked if she could get pregnant 2-3 days after ovulation. NOT can i get pregnant if i may or may not have ovulated. i gave my answer based on the actual written question exactly as is. if she did ovulate already (as the title assumed) then she wouldnt get pregnant 2-3 days later. if she had asked "did i for sure ovulate and could i get pregnant this far after" then i could understand a rebuttle to my answer, but she didnt. she asked if she could get pregnant 2-3 days after ovulation...scientifically..chances are slim. i was just being honest and answering the actual question. no need to get in a twist about someone elses answer just because i dont agree with yours.

Conceiving after ovulation


Last novemeber I ovulated on a Monday (i get bad ovulation pain every month so I know for sure) and my husband and i hadnt had sex for about a week so there was definately no left over sperm floating around.
3 days later on thursday night we had sex... thought for sure it was safe as it was 3 days after ovulation.
Sure enough... my period didnt show, took a test and got a BFP.
So it is possible to get pregnant after ovulation.

However, about 5 weeks later I had a miscarriage. And I wonder whether it was because the egg was badly deteriorated by the time it was fertilized so it was never going to last... but I'll never know I guess.

We are ttc again now

The statistics that I'm aware of say the eggies deteriorate 12-24 hours after ovulation. Most experts believe 12 hours is as long as an average eggie could last after ovulation.

If you ovulated on Sunday, then it is virtually impossible to get pregnant on Tuesday. However, it doesn't sound like you're for sure that you ovulated on Sunday so there is still a chance!

Also, this is the wttc boards so you may get better and quicker responses on the ttc boards! Good luck!!
