Does having sex the day before ovulation give me a high chance of getting pregnant?

I have been tracking my cycle to help my Husband and Ito have a better chance of having a baby. I have read a lot of articles on when fertility usually starts but I know it can change in every woman. We had sex the day before ovulation which I have been told is a great day for trying to have a baby. I would love if any mothers out there know if this is fairly accurate to know if I have a high chance of being pregnant this time. I ovulated yesterday so I know it is too soon to tell but we would like to know our chances of being able to conceive. Thank you

My suggestion would be the day before, the day of ovulation and the next 2 days :) That gives you a greater chance of becoming pregnant. Good luck!

Fertility window is 4 days before O, O and the day after O.

2-3 times during this window gives you the best chance.

Not sure about 2 days after O. This might help if there's been a miscalculation, I guess.

5 years TTC. Endometriosis and adenomyosis. Surgery. 2 IVFs. No joy. Low ovarian reserve. Is there any real hope? DE IVF = next step. Much higher success rates, but so used to things not working, it's hard to feel too hopeful. Wishing others an easier time.
