I am new here, and actually just came across these boards when googling my question. I really liked the various responses on the threads from this site so I decided to join.
I have 3 daughters and use NFP so I am pretty familiar with all that stuff. We are TTA right now, but pushed our limits a bit, and I tend to always wonder every month if I could be pregnant, even if I know it's impossible since we usually abstain during my fertile window. We DTD on CD 11 in the evening. I had had a fairly dry day aside from scant tacky/sticky mucus, and a bit of the really sticky/tacky mucus at my cervix. The following day (12) I still only noticed tacky mucus and not a lot of it. Today (CD 13), I am starting to have the mucus that's a bit more stretchy and actually coming out, causing me to feel wet. I'm on my 4th post-partum cycle so things aren't completely regular yet, but my cycle last month was 29 days.
My question is in regards to whether or not I could get pregnant. If I ovulate on CD 15 or 16, is it possible the sperm from CD 11 could still be there even though I didn't have a lot of mucus and it was the very tacky/sticky kind on CD 11? I read about a lot of women on here getting pregnant from sex several days before O so I'm starting to get anxious about it. I'd be thrilled, but that's definitely not in our plans. I know sperm can live 5 days, but in optimal mucus. I definitely did not have optimal mucus at the time we had sex, but I wasn't completely dry. I'm just now starting to have the more fertile mucus in the middle of the day on CD 13. Sorry if I keep repeating myself, but I'm just trying to include all the details. Oh, and I guess I should mention that we are very fertile, meaning we got pregnant with one "try" with each of our daughters, only one of those times being a conscious "try." ;)
I appreciate your responses! Thank you so much!
