Ok would sperm be more fertile if my husband hasn't ejaculated in over 2 weeks? He is a firefighter and has been gone a little over a week already on a fire and will be home on the July 30th. So will his sperm be like extra fertile and alive lol since he hasn't done anything in that long? I'm suppose to be ovulating around the same time he gets home to. Are the chances of pregnancy higher with sperm that hasn't been realesed in over 2 weeks? I know its kind of an odd question but I am really curious, Thank you!

Actually they would be more healthy if he would release himself before he came home like the above poster said, like 2 days before. That gives them plenty of time to replenish themselves.

I don't think he has any time or anything to be able to do that. He is a firefighter and he is in northern California right now on a fire. Now when he comes home on July 30th there is a good chance he will only be home a few days before leaving to go on a fire again. So I know every 2 days is better but what if we only have a few days? I've thought about buying fertility vitamins and stuff from the health food store but I don't want to end up with twins or something because they worked to well. But we really want to be pregnant already!

Ok, well do you know that you will be ovulating around the time when he will be home? Have you been testing with opk or charting your temps?

If he is going to be home for just a couple days, then your window or opportunity is really short. If he has not released in a long time, then the sperm are "over mature" in a sense. They start to die off, and they will not be strong enough to make it to the egg. That is if there will be an egg there waiting.

I wouldnt worry about buying the fertility vitamins for two reasons. One it takes a while for them to get into your system for them to be benificial. Secondly they wont make you end up with twins. They wont make you release more than one egg. They help with your reproductive system as a whole. you would have to take fertility drugs in order for you to be at risk for multiples and you can only get them from a doctor.

**And mega props to your hubby for going up to Northern Cali to fight those fires. I am in the Fire/Rescue Business so I know what its like.

I just looked at different ovulation charts online and they all said that I am suppose to be fertile July 30th til August 4th and ovulating the 3rd, according to when my period is, and its right when I'm suppose to start next and everything. So I don't have enough time for the fertility vitamins to start working, he will be home July 30th? And no I don't plan on going to any Dr. for fertility drugs unless we can't get prego this year. And thank you!
