Hi all

I am 38, 3 DC aged 11, 9 and 5. Have had unprotected sex on CD10. Periods usually regular ish. Last cycle was 27 days long. Periods usually last about 5 days.
Haven’t had to worry about any of his for a LONG time.
How likely is it that I could be in range of being pregnant?

I know thats a vague question. Just looking for experiences/wisdom really.

It’s very much possible. With a 27 day cycle, if you have a standard 14 day luteal phase (which not everyone does) you would expect to ovulate on day 13. Sperm can live to 5 days so you’re within range of ovulation day......

Thanks both.

How do you know long your luteal phase is?

How do you know long your luteal phase is? unless you are tracking ovulation pretty religiously it's hard to tell. But the average is 14 days (on anylength cycle) with a short cycle it might be shorter though.

Right ok.

Still not sure how likely it is. I guess I just have to wait 14 days and test. Is it 14 days from the day I had sex?

Thanks, I’ve totally forgotten everything!
