Probably been asked a million times before, but how long can you be fertile for after ovulating? I think I'm ovulating this week, so have been having SWI as much as possible, but its only ever at night, and have missed a couple of days. Are you fertile for over 24 hours?

You are fertile for 12 to 24 hours. The recommendation is to SWI for the two days before ovulation, the day of, and the day after if possible. Sperm hangs around for up to 5 days though, so as long as you've SWI within the past few days before ovulation, you are in with a chance.
