- unlikely but not impossible. Typically your fertile window is estimated to be three days before ov, ovulation day and the day after (5days in total). Unlikely to live longer than 4/5 days but in optimal conditions can be 6/7.
- no. Most people's lutal phase (time between ov and af) is consistent. But many things can affect ov timing (stress, ibuprofen, flying). Also some people have slightly different timings from each ovary. As an example my ov date has fluctuated between CD 17 and 24! That's over a week different! This isn't the average though.
I know this is a silly question but I wanted to check is it possible to conceive if you only did the deed once 8 days before you ovulated and no other time during the month?
Many thanks for any advice on this
Also another silly question I know but I would be very grateful for any advice - do you ovulate roughly the same time every month - for instance I have a 29-30 day cycle so does that mean I ovulate regularly on day 16 every month or could I ovulate on different days on different months
