My hubby leaves on Sunday afternoon. I ovulate roughly 2-3days after that. If I use preseed, on Sunday afternoon - and we do it - is there any chance I can still get preggo a couple days later?
Trying to figure out if I should bother wasting an applicator full of preseed when it's so freaking expensive!

I believe there is a chance when you are in the 2-3 day range, but I don't know how big a chance related to your costs. Not a great answer...good luck mama!

Sperm can live up to 5 days in your body under favorable conditions. So, I'd say, yes, it's possible (and more likely you'll have a girl )

New studies actually show that in the most favorable conditions, sperm can live up to 7 days. Our baby girl was conceived 6 days pre O, so it definitely is possible.

Nice! I thought I had heard that, but wasn't sure, so I went with 5 which was the old standard

Well if you look at my chart, you can see we DTD many days before I probably O'd and a few days after and I still got PG. I would go for it!!

Ok for some reason it doesn't show DTD days on this link but we DTD on July 6 and July 18 and I had EWCM from July 9-13. I thought I O'd around the 13th since it dried up the next day but that would make the sperm live for 7 days and I don't know if that's possible so maybe I O'd in the middle around July 10..but like I said, go for it!!
