    No, it doesn't usually hang around that long. Living sperm can sometimes be retrieved but that sperm is very unlikely to fertilize an egg. The majority of conceptions happen O-2, O-1, and O Day.

    The most likely time you ovulated would be Feb 22 in that case but it could also be you ovulated even 23 or 24 and had a 12 day LP.

    Thanks atomic! I think we are going to skip this cycle and try again in April when my husband won’t be working out of town. Are there any other supplements I should take besides the fish oil and prenatals that would boost overall fertility?

    I would have you take the fish oil every other day. 1000 daily is too much.

    I would add in a probiotic.

    Hi atomic! My cycle started on April 5. I am on cd13 today. My husband has to leave town for work again so we are going to have an attempt today and when he returns on cd15. Do you think that would be good enough this month? Thanks!

    Well, it depends when you ovulate. Like, if you O CD 18 that would not be enough.

    Go ahead and attempt when he goes and when he comes back, but I'd be doing the OPK too to know when ovulation happens, so if it's later you can have attempts.

    Hi atomic,
    We are still not having any luck with conception, unfortunately. I would love any advice on how to improve conception odds. I am quite disheartened as my first two were conceived on the first month of trying and think that my age now is causing a problem (I am 37). I have been taking prenatals and off/on with probiotics. My diet has generally remained the same since I conceived my son. Basically HE diet. I do drink about two cups of coffee per day.

    Our attempts have pretty much been 1 time during the fertile period because he works quite a bit out of town and is not really into timing sex. I want this 3rd baby more than him, if that makes sense. Last cycle, we dtd the night of my first flashing smiley on the clear blue (cd9) and the night of the static smiley (cd11). My cycle was 26 days last month (May3-May29). This month it was 27 days (May29- June24). Our attempts this cycle were on June 6& June 8 and my period started on June 24.


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    Well, if you're having sex just one time that's the most likely issue. Fertility does not drop off the way they make it sound, and if you had kiddos in the past the odds are good you are still fertile at 37 and we just need either a lucky month or better timed sex.

    So in May, you ~probably~ had just one well timed BD on CD 11. I would have liked to see one more or even two attempts in there but you did have some chance of conception.

    In June, only the June 8 attempt had a chance. Again, one attempt, with some chance of conception. I would have liked to see more attempts just before or for a couple days after.

    But that having been said, if you have even a slightly shorter LP than 14 days, your attempts in both months would have been too early, too. If your LP was even just 12 days (which is still totally normal and very commmon) you would have likely missed ovulation totally.

    I mention that not to make you feel bad, but to reassure you because these just weren't great attempts. So please don't feel like you're menopausal or any such thing. You haven't even started giving it a shot yet! In future months you may have better timing and better luck.

    Thanks for your response Atomic! How do I find out how long my LP is? I’ve always used those clear blue smiley opks, and timed sex during flashing and static smiley and was successful both previous times. Are there any supps I should add? Thanks again!
