We are ttc conceive. I dont know when i ovulate but i have a fairly regular 28 day cycle. Do you think its possible to get pregnant on day 8 of cycle?

Yes you can. I did. I think sperm can live for up to a week inside you

Depends when you ovulate. I have a regular 25 day cycle and get positive ok on day 8. So Will ovulate 12 - 36 hours after and sperm can live inside you for several days. So yes.

Yes, it's possible. Probably not the key day on a 28 day cycle (though could be depending on when you ov). I have a 26 day cycle (ish) and my app says days 9 and 10 are key - I ov on day 12.

You can get pregnant at any point during your cycle, however it's very unlikely at certain points. Like someone above said, sperm can live for a week so if you DTD on cd8 and ovulate on cd14 for example, there's a chance there's still surviving sperm waiting to hopefully fertilise an egg.

Yep, I did. I have periods lasting approx 5-6 days, ovulate immediately after at about day 7-8 and I am currently 18+5.

Yes. I got knocked up on day 5 and I am old.

Yes as it can last upto a week (sperm that is) we DTD day 10 (just that day, until later on into cycle) and I fell pregnant day 16 so it lasted 6 days apparantly
