U know how u look up when u ovulate..it gives days. Do ur ovulating all those days? Right? Say u have sex only once or twice while in ur "fertile" periods does ur chances decrease? Like having more sex is better or less.. like cuz of sperm count etc. I had sex once n got pregnant before n before I was doing a lot. So just depends. N so the first few days or more fertile or last few days??

There is a fertile window starting about 3 days before you ovulate until.about 1 day after. Some things ive read say its better to just have sex once a day in that time period in order to maximize the sperm count but it doesnt mean you wont get preg if u do it more than once a day, just that ur chances might be better.

Well I looked up when I am ovulating..its just says 19th-24th. Are my most fertile days..so I am ok..so I have like 5 days to get pregnant? ? It doesn't tell me like I ovulate this day or what not. So if I have sex 5 day during then u would get pregnant?? I am so confused. I never had trouble getting pregnant before but was pregnant like that! But after miscarriages seems to b taking me longer.

Yes it depends in your body and cycle as to which day you will ovulate, that's why I said there are three days before and one day after, basically saying the same thing that there is a4-5 day fertile window. Do you have a dollar store in your area? If so they sell ovulation predictor kits and you can test each day to find out exactly when you are ovulating so you will know. Keep track of this for a month our two and then you can accurately pinpoint the day you are ovulating. You want to have sex in the 3, 4, even 5 days before the day that you are ovulating up to one day after. Once you ovulate there will only be a small window of opportunity, about a day I think, to get pregnant as the egg moves down your falopian tube. The best thing to do really, which is what I did is to google "how to get pregnant by tracking ovulation" and read as much info as you can regarding pregnancy fertile period and ovulation. it's a bit complicated to explain on a forum post. anyway, like I said go to the dollar store or any other store and get ovulation predictors. this really helped me to know the exact day that I was ovulating because depending on your cycle length you may ovulate earlier or later than with the internet told you. if you cannot afford the ovulation predictors then there's another way to track your ovulation using cervical mucus method. this is also something you should look up on the Internet as it is a little bit long to explain. if you don't understand it or need anymore help just post reply and I will try to explain it to the best of my ability. good luck I hope you get a BFP soon! : )

Thank u for replaying n yea very complicated I know. I am like ugh..lol I have ovulation tests..I am pretty sure I am. I mean getting the pains u get n the fluid etc. But the big ? Is so if u get a bfp on ovulation test u do it then or after a day etc? I been taking prenatal to prepare too. So do u really ovulate one day or those 3-5 days?? My bf is leaving soon due to the military so I don't have that long.
