So it seems everywhere I read, that swimmers can live up to 5 days. Is this all the time, no matter what the vaginal conditons are? Or is this just with FM? What if at some point in the menstrual cycle you DTD during a time when fertile mucus is not detected and then say fertile mucus shows up a day or 2 later? Do they die within a few hours when good mucus isn't detected, or some do, some don't, and maybe then, when fertile mucus is noted, the life span can extend due to good conditions? I have what I consider a tiny chance of conceiving this month b/c DH is going out of town and most likely won't be around for my actual O day. We will plan to DTD tonight(CD9) and late tomorrow night(CD10, early am CD11). As of this am I feel pretty dry. So I'm pretty sure when he's gone that my CM will be changing to the fertile type. I'm just wondering if there's a chance that we could have a chance to conceive. I'm not getting my hopes up though, it seems to be a shot in the dark, mainly b/c when I think I'll start gearing up to O, won't be able to DTD! What do you all think about the question of life of a spermie??
