Pregnant after dtd once!

Is it possible? I’m not pregnant.
I had my high peak yesterday dtd but hubby is away now so it’s unlikely we will get pregnant this month.
As I’ve stayed on other threads I’ve had some conflicting advice from the fertility friend app, we seem to be disagreeing on when I OV. OPK confirmed peak yesterday though.

Is it possible hmm

Is it possible to get pregnant from having sex?

I'm going to say yes.

NickMyLipple Tue 31-Oct-17 21:12:48

I'm 17 weeks today and proof that dtd once can make you up-duffed!

YouCantArgueWithStupid Tue 31-Oct-17 21:12:59

My current Bump was from dtd once that cycle 2 days post ovulation according to the app we were using.

Needadvicetoleave Tue 31-Oct-17 21:13:51

Yes. Happened to me.

DTD count day 11. BFP count day 28.

DS is now 22months.

Jenala Tue 31-Oct-17 21:14:48

Come on. Everyone knows you have you have sex more than once to get pregnant. hmm

DramaAlpaca Tue 31-Oct-17 21:15:31

Yes, that's how my DS2 happened.

JoJoSM2 Tue 31-Oct-17 21:19:17

Is this a serious question?

NorthernLurker Tue 31-Oct-17 21:21:03

How many times did you think you had to have sex to get pregnant? hmm

NapQueen Tue 31-Oct-17 21:22:52

Of course it is possible.

Ds is the product of us deciding "lets have another" then getting scared and not dtd for a whole month after. Once was enough.

BastardTart Tue 31-Oct-17 21:24:42

No idea what high peaks are but yes, unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy.

Liz38 Tue 31-Oct-17 21:24:58

Yep! She's 7 now grin

tarheelbaby Tue 31-Oct-17 21:27:28

yes. you can totally be up-duffed after only one DTD.

For DD1, we had been trying for a few months. DH was going to be away the week I thought would be BFP so we gave it the old college try the week before. Reeesuullt! DD1

For DD2 we were driving to a wedding oop north and I convinced DH that we should start trying, not really believing an extra week would matter. Result: felt sick even the next day! DD2 was en route. Poor DH, he was hoping for a long campaign...

Other friends have reported 'first time lucky'.

skankingpiglet Tue 31-Oct-17 21:28:35

Yup. DD1 took 1 slip up attempt. No charting anything, just right time, right place, crap condom grin

I'm sitting looking at my ten-year-old who was the result of one occasion of coitus in two months. We always used the pull out method (worked with no other contraception for 7 years) but on this occasion our two year old walked into the room at the critical moment so dh couldn't pull out and boom! Here is my little guy ten years later. So blessed! Good luck!

MMcanny Tue 31-Oct-17 21:30:37

And yes, this was the only occasion of sex in 2 mos, if not 4! It wasn't another careless pull out time!

Cupcakesandlove Tue 31-Oct-17 22:11:02

I know how to reproduce thanks I’ve got a DD.
My question was light hearted and to hear of others who had solely had intercourse once and that resulted in pregnancy.
Being an adult I know it only take “once” but trying to conceive is an absolute mind f**k and sometimes I don’t even want to take it seriously, after being turnt nearly insaine by opks!
So thank you to those who have replied and given me hope xxxx

Cupcakesandlove Tue 31-Oct-17 22:12:32

As my husband is away we’ve only
Had the opportunity to do it once this month the day I got my peak on my opk. I was just wondering had anyone else only
Had sex on their peak and got pregnant. Thanks x

Emus Tue 31-Oct-17 22:38:35

Happened to me OP! We dtd once then two days later my OPK was positive. Assumed we were out that month but apparently we weren’t! Now have 2.4 year old ds 😬

MouseLove Tue 31-Oct-17 22:40:57

I’m sure all of us who have been trying years love the thought of a lighthearted thread that literally has no point. Please think about it before you post. Most of the ladies on these boards are struggling to get pregnant or would give ANYTHING for a one bonk wonder. 😑

Urglewurgle Tue 31-Oct-17 22:41:35

Yeah. 7 week old DD is the result of just one unprotected time!

Thisismydilemma Tue 31-Oct-17 22:42:52

Yes, I'm 4 weeks due to dtd once

NorthernLurker Wed 01-Nov-17 10:23:45

There's nothing 'lighthearted' about your op. If you ask a silly question you will get the answers you deserve.

DontDrinkDontSmoke Wed 01-Nov-17 10:26:04

Every pregnancy (other than AI) is the result of a single shag.

Needadvicetoleave Wed 01-Nov-17 10:52:47

Mouselove Sorry you are struggling to conceive, but the people who have responded have generally not said how long they were trying for, just that the month they were lucky they only did it once, for a variety of reasons.
