Question

Positive opk

I got a positive ovulation strip. My partner and I BD the twice the day before once the day of but he couldn't finish the day after I got the positive. Are my chances still good? I didn't actually ovulate until 24 hours after I saw the two lines right? Just wondering if anyone had success not BD after the peak?

Sperm lives up to 5 days. So it is better to have lots of sex leading up to ovulation because then there is already lots of sperm waiting. However, it is hard to pinpoint exactly when a woman ovulates. OPKs clue you in on when you are getting an LH surge, but it can still be 12-48 hours after you see your positive that the egg is released. My husband and I call it our Week-O-Love because we set aside an entire week to be extra romantic and try for a baby. We give each other massages, spend extra time kissing throughout the day to make it more than just baby making. That way we cover all of the fertile days. When I finally get that positive opk, we already have 4 days worth of sperm ready to greet the egg, but also another day or two after just in case.
There is a method called The Sperm Meets Egg Method. Look it up, very informative.
