Realistically what are the chances? I don't really understand everything! I'm only going off my app on my phone that tells me ovulation should be Tuesday 4th.

Very good! Sperm can live inside your body for five days, so DTD in the days leading up to ovulation is better than waiting for ovulation to occur. That way the sperm are ready and waiting when the egg comes trundling along.

Yes very good I'm now 8 weeks pregnant after dtd 2 days before ovulation.

Ah I see, thanks! We planned on not trying but not preventing and I didn't realise ovulation was so close.

I think you actually have more chance if you dtd before ovulation rather than limiting yourself to when you ovulate as the sperm takes a while to travel to the uterus...

I'm 22 weeks pregnant after dtd a few days before ovulating (and had written that month off as we didn't dtd whilst I was ovulating)

Eek exciting then! And slightly scary ha

We dtd 4 days before I got a positive opk which only means ovulation will happen in the next 24-36 hours so probably 5 days before I actually ovulated we weren't trying. It was a huge shock shock

Two days before ovulation has been scientifically proven to be the best chance if getting pregnant
