It's gonna sound dumb but I'm just not clear when exactly we need to 'do the deed'. I thought the sperm lived for 5 days and the egg for 1 day, so we should try prior to and at ovulation. However, someone told me it's the other way around and we need to try at ovulation and after. Can someone tell me how it works?!
OK, thanks guys. Actually, I already have a 9 month old so I guess we must have got it right once but I have no clue how! Hoping we can do it a little quicker second time around (first time took 10 months).
Also, it was my GP who gave me the 'wrong' information about the lifetime of the sperm and egg. I didn't try to correct him but felt sure I was right!
Not sure yet how long my cycle is - I only stopped bf a couple of months ago so only had one period yet. Last time, it was very variable (between 21-25 days) and predicting ovulation was a bit of a lottery.
