I have to leave the country without DH at CD10. I usually have 28 day cycles, but last month was 26.<br><br>
If we BD on CD10, what do you think my chances are of catching that eggie (should I ovulate)?<br><br>
I just can't help but hope that, even though I won't be around from CD11-17 that we may *may* be in this month.

How long is your LP normally? If you O mid-cycle (not everyone does), you likely O on the 14th day. So CD10 would be a little bit on the early side, but not impossible.

That's the problem, I don't really know for sure. I got to 10dpo one time, 14dpo two other times.

So you aren't temping to see what cycle day you O? It may be hard to say for sure then. The average is cd14 so like the PP poster said, that isn't impossible but not great odds. But you could also be an early Oer especially with a short cycle length like 26 days? What about freezing some of the swimmers for a few days after he leaves as well? (don't know anything about freezing them or reinserting etc...but I'm sure someone here does!)

Cant do home freezing, you would ruin them :/<br><br>
and its really expensive to do professionally (I looked into this with DF deploying last year)

really? Even with dry ice? Hmm, well, it was worth mentioning. I guess our home technology hasn't advanced there yet - but I'm sure someday it will!<br>
Is there nothing you can do to preserve them just a couple days?

you have to do something or other to them before freezing them (wash them? or something like that?) a procedure which, if done at home is not likely to yield beneficial results.<br><br>
Im not totally clear on this subject... but I do know that doing it at home is not a good idea/going to work. Sadly. I really wanted to myself.<br><br>
As for getting them to last... best she can do is to DTD as soon before leaving as possible and hope for the best!

Sperm are active for about 3 days, but can live as long as 7 (on the WAY outside range of their lifespan, in perfect conditions.) Since you don't know when you o, I'd totally give it a shot. BD right before you have to leave, but make sure you give yourself at least 20 minutes to lay down afterwards, and try an Instead cup to keep it all in. You'll probably get a girl from this, if you get a BFP. We're crossing our fingers for you!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

<span>when i conceived my dd. caitlin we weren't trying to have a baby and our sex life was well none existent the only time we dtd was on cd 9/28 and at my 20 wk scan my date was put back a week from 1st july to the 8th reason the used was that i must have ovulated a week later than i thought and as i thought i had o'd cd 14 by there stance on it i must have o'd on cd 21. so yes i think you still have a good chance.<br>
fwiw i think i o'd on cd 14 not 21 but still thats 5 days after dtd. from what i have read sperm can live 5 days inside your body.<br>
good luck <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx"></span>

Like iheartmyfamily, soy isoflavone supplements move my O date up by 3-4 days also. This isn't a very soy-supportive board so I haven't seen much info here about it but if you google around, you will. You have to be willing to blow the cycle in case it has a different effect for you and you have to be up for doing a bit of a science experiment with your body. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> But it works really well for lots of women. Both my BFPs are soy babies. If your cycle hasn't started yet (or just started), it might be worth looking into.<br><br>
Good luck and definitely have a go right before you leave. So often BFPs happen when we're least expecting them!

20 week scans can be off by up to 2 weeks so you are more than likely right.<br><br>
We know my O date without a doubt... and yesterdays 21w ultrasound put me at 20w. Shes just a little baby, like her daddy was!
