I know that apparently sperm can live 6 days or so inside. Anyone here had a bfp after having dtd a couple of days before ovulation?

We DTD on the day I got a positive OPK (cheapie strip) so likely ovulated the day after. We didn't do it on O day or after, just the 3 days leading up to it. I got my BFP last Thursday at 10dpo.

Yes. About 4 days before, I think. Somewhat unexpected.

Yes about 5 days before. I had an ovulation kit. I didn't ovulate until 5 days later. I thought I couldn't possibly be pregnant. And drank too much wine over Christmas. To find I was pregnant in the New Year. I think you're more likely to have a girl this way. Mine was a dd. And fortunately she is fine.

Definitely! I ovulated on the 2nd Sep but we last had sex on the 28th August so I was pretty impressed!

Yes about 3-4 days before ovulation

Yes. DH was away with work on the day I got a positive on the ovulation stick (and for a few days after), so I assumed we'd missed the window that month. But I got pregnant which must have been from DTD a couple of days earlier.
