My question is how long do you have to get pregnant once you ovulate. I heard somewhere that you can only get pregnant one or maybe two days a month. So once you ovulate how long do you have to get pregnant??

It's actually better to bd (baby dance) before ovulation...like the day before, or two days before...even three days before could work...not sure about after ovulation though...best bet is to bd everyday!!!

Once you ovulate the egg is viable for about 12-24 hours at the most. Closer to 12-18 hours. So it is better to bd prior to ovulating as the sperm can live in the uterus and such for up to 5 days. It can't hurt to bd after you o - you might just catch it! Good luck.
