I have googled this and found a ton of conflicting "facts". Everything from 3 days to 8 days. I have a good bit of faith in the mothers on this board and I'm wondering what your opinions and experiences with this subject might be.
The reason I ask is that dh and I DTD on day 8 of my cycle without taking any precautions. This has never been a problem before since I usually ovulate around day 16-17 (for this reason among others I strongly doubt the 8 days survival figure). However, this morning at about 6am I felt ovulation occur. I nearly always feel it, so it's not something I'd mistake. That means it's been 5.5 days from us having sex to ovulation. Do you think any swimmers could still be swimming?
And I don't chart anymore, since we have decided to just avoid getting pregnant for at least the next two years. We only fail to take precautions when I'm sure there is no chance of pregnancy (though now my definition of no chance may change to only the last few days before AF).
Thanks for any help.
