To conceive on day 10 of a 28 day cycle when ovulation is on day 14/15?

Dh away now for ten days and I was wondering if it was possible to conceive given ovulation is four or five days away.

It's very unlikely.

Oh. Bugger. Oh long does sperm stay alive in the female body then?

It can stay around for about 5 days and you don't always ovulate at the same time. So i'd think it was possible, although not highly likely.

Definitely have a quick shag before he goes!!

You coudln't conceive on day 10, but could conceive on ovulation day with the sperm having stayed alive for 4/5 days. Good luck!

I seem to remember reading that there is a 25% chance on day of ovulation, 20% day before, 15% two days before, 10% three days, 5% four days before, then nowt before that.

So I guess that means it's just possible if you ov on day 14... or if your DH has unusually long lived sperm!

Ah well. Not this month then unless dh has super sperm. Or I ovulate early. Either way, it's another month ahead to try again.. ...

Thanks all.
