Here is another informative video for all to see. Most of you women know exactly what happens but it is still interesting to see it happen. http://www.seronocycle.com/index_flash.html

Hey Emma, I can't open that? But Here's one that I found on the natural Monthly cycle....http://www.fertilitylifelines.com/fertilityhealth/biology/naturalcycle.jsp I thought it was interesting, in the program, it says that the egg can be in the fallopian tube up to 3 days...huh? I thought the egg lasts only 12-24 hours?

Take out the dashes...

Hey cool Linds! That's the same video that Emma posted, but at a different site! Here's to 8 dpo for us!!

Here's another couple of cool sites: (take out the dashes **http://www.psy.pdx.edu/PsiCafe/Areas/Developmental/Conception/PhotoEssay/PrenatalDev.htm** **http://www.med.upenn.edu/meded/public/berp/overview/BV_1.html?1** I used to like to go to these when I though I might be pg every month. Every day I'd let myself look at the next slide so I could see what might be happening in me!

Ok Keeli, since you saw the video, it says the egg can last in the fallopian tubes for 3 days??? I thought Emma said yesterday in the myths/facts thread you can only get pregnant one day out of the month???

 

Emma2 - May 18

The egg is viable for 12-24 hours at its best. And yes you can only get pregnant one day.

 

linds99 - May 18

So the video is wrong?

 

Emma2 - May 18

The video is also claiming day 13 you ovulate but everyone is diffrent ...so the video is taking an average......and technically and logically there is onloy one day to get pregnant the moment the sperm meets the egg it shuts off from others entering that happens in ONE DAY.....so the video is not wrong and the correct answer is there is only one day the egg is viable and only one day pregnancy can be achieved

Emma, you said "Technically the only day you get pregnant is when you ovulate.." Well, when you ovulate, according to this video, the egg can survive in the fallopian tubes up to 3-days... ( I read yesterday that sperm needs about 12 hours to prime itself for fertilization), but with the ability for the egg to survive that long for three days, I would interpret that as the possibility for getting pregnant each month is more than one day.

Hence why the highest conception rate is 2 days PRIOR to ovulation. NOT the day of ovulation. Intercourse the day of ovulation is less likely to get you pregnant. The egg is viable for 12-24 hours at the most. SO yes I would say they are exaggerating on the time of viability.

And then there is the question: Are you considered 'pregnant' when the egg is fertilized, or when the egg implants. My OPINION (don't kill me) is that you are actually getting pregnant over several days. They say 25% of women will m/c. In early m/c many of these are not doc_mented and the woman never even knew she was pg. Was she considered pg just because she had a fertilized egg cell(s) in her?

 

Emma2 - May 18

Well, Medically for abortion supporters and ECP supporters they believe Pregnancy is achieved only once implanted. I am undecided on which ....

 

linds99 - May 18

I know that the conception rate is higher the 72 hours before ovulation, but according to my Clear Blue Easy monitor, it also cites the day of ovulation as a significant day to have s_x to achieve pregnancy, so you may be wrong. 2 Scenarios....You can release and egg, and have no sperm there waiting for it and then have s_x with hubby and get the egg fertilized after 12 hours if the egg still survived. Or you can have sperm there waiting for the egg up to 72 hours before it is released and get it fertilized right away after it releases from the ovary.

 

Emma2 - May 18

linds99, to clarify conception rate is highest at 2 days prior not 3....the average sperm survives 2 days(48hrs). I don't understand your 2 scenarios because really i didnt deny any of what you said. All i am saying is the egg does not survive longer than 24 hours before is starts to disintergrate and that clear blue is not wrong either but its not recommended to have intercourse the day OF because you are LESS likely to achieve pregnancy. Its all very clear so i dont know why youre not undersatnding me.
