I luv bd'ing! - May 8

I started AF yesterday....generally lasts around 5-6 days. Now when is the best time to BD? Will I conceive the day after or do I have to wait a few days?

You normally ovulate on about the 14th day after the 1st day of your period. So if yours started yesterday (7th) then (if you have a normal 28 day cycle) you would ovulate on about 21st of May. If you are ttc, you should bd on 19th and 20th as well, as sperm can live inside you for up to three days - this will "catch" all the little suckers!

Just re-counted - 14th day would be 20th (you count the 7th as "1") so you need to bd on 18th, 19h and 20th. Good luck!

Becareful about giving (or asking for) definitive information. Most of the questions/answers all totally depend on you. There is no final answer that relates to everyone. The date to bd all depends on how long her cycle is. Only if it is 28 days would ovulation be day 14. Rather than say it is 14 days after day 1 of AF, it is best to say that it is usually 14 days before next AF (between 14 and 17). So if you have a regular cycle, you can count backwards. if it is irregular, you need to get a predictor kit or the like. Even then, I would not limit it to a 3 day window. My doctors all say allow 7-10 days, and bd at least every second day......

You raise a good point about the length of cycle etc, Cee Bee (that's why I said about only being relevant for a normal 28 day cycle). I figured "I luv bd'ing" probably already did it every couple of days (lol!) so I just thought she would like to know the "most likely" days. Take care :-)
