Are you temping and using cm? Your eggs are not living for 4 or 5 days.
Women who have regular periods can easily calculate when ovulation occurs. Ovulation almost always happens 14 days before you expect your period. For a woman who has 28 day cycles, that would be in the exact middle of the cycle, 14 days after the last period and 14 days before the next one. Women who have 30 day cycles can expect to ovulate 16 days after the last period, which is 14 days before the next one.
Women who have irregular cycles cannot predict when they will ovulate. In retrospect, they can calculate that ovulation occurred 14 days before a period, but that does not help in planning a pregnancy. Women with very irregular cycles may need to use ovulation predictor kits to determine when they will ovulate. Ovulation predictor kits detect the rise in hormones that occurs before the egg is released.
It is not necessary to time intercourse to coincide with ovulation. Thatâs because both the sperm and the egg can live inside you for a while. The egg can last approximately 24 hours after ovulation. If sperm are available anytime during this 24 hour window, you can get pregnant. You donât have to have sex within the 24 hour window, though. Thatâs because sperm can live inside you for days, waiting for the egg to be released. You can get pregnant by having intercourse anywhere from several days before ovulation to a day after ovulation.
For example, if you ovulate on day 14 (counting the first day of your period as day 1), you can get pregnant by having sex anytime between days 9-15, and perhaps days 8 and 16 as well. Conception will take place on day 14 or so, but you may have had sex many days before conception.
Ok, no one is getting smart with you. We don't even know you. How could we possibly tell you if you are pregnant. You have a 25% chance of getting pregnant during any given cycle with perfectly timed intercourse. So you have about a 25% chance of being pregnant. The only way you will know is if you wait for your period and take a test.
How many people have told you that there is a possibility of you being pregnant? I make 5 people to say that there is a chance you are pregnant. Unless you take a test, no one is going to be able to tell you if you are or are not. It is a possibility.
I think Ingi was just trying to give you some helpful info. Your question is like me going to africa and coming back and asking these girls if I have tuberculosis. How are they supposed to know. You can get pregnancy symptoms and not be pregnant. That's just part of being a woman, unfortunetly.
