Hi everyone, is there any chance that you can conceive on a non fertile day or does it have to be on your fertile days and ovulation? Thanks x

You can conceive on any day.

I guess it depends on how you define non fertile days. The Billings method is as reliable as any I know, but I wouldn't take a chance unless a pregnancy wouldn't be a definite mistake.

Sperm can live for up to 5 days

Well apparently I conceived DD2 2 weeks before the only occasion I actually DTD during the whole month so I guess, yes!

Oh and this does take into account the whole "counting the 1st 2 weeks of your cycle" thing - my 12 week scan effectively dated me ovulating and biologically conceiving 2 weeks before I even DTD! confused

Baby was 'late' BTW... fancy that!
