That sounds like it would have been enough for you. FYY, they say start bd'ing 72 hours (3 days) before you ovulate through ovulation, including the day of the egg, and day after the egg. But my doctor recommends that every other day and day of ovulation if good enough just to make sure there is a supply of swimmers in the tubes.

LINDS99, THANKS FOR THE ANSWERS. I HOPE IT WAS ENOUGH. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TTC?

Hi Nikki, 7 months. I'm seeing a fertility specialist now because I think it is getting ridiculous. She thinks I have a hormonal imbalance, maybe not enough progesterone, who knows, but my blood tests start by the end of the month or when I get AF on the 24th. But for now, I am 5 days post ovulation (CD 24) and have no signs, probably didn't happen this month. How long have you been trying???

linds99, we have only really been trying this month.

I just found this: Newest studies have shown that you only have the four to five days BEFORE ovulation and the day of ovulation to get pregnant. Your chances of getting pregnant increase if you make love regularly, more often, and as you get closer to the day of ovulation. Your fertility also increases the more often (but no more than once a day) you have s_x throughout the cycle, not just during the fertile days. Your chance of getting pregnant is nearly zero if you have s_x after ovulation. Why? Sperm need about 12 hours of "prep time" in your uterus before they can fertilize the egg. And the egg usually doesn't survive long, maybe only 12-24 hours, for that to happen. So to get pregnant it's best to have sperms already close to the egg when ovulation happens. That's why when you want to get pregnant the best time to make love are the 1-2 days before and the day of ovulation. Not the day after.
