Can you get pregnant if you don’t ovulate?
You can’t get pregnant if you are not ovulating because there is no egg for the sperm to fertilize. You can get pregnant if you have unprotected sex anywhere from 5 days before ovulation until 1 day after ovulation.
Is it possible to not get pregnant for weeks at a time?
Of course, every woman is different, as are her monthly cycles, so it’s never a sure bet to say that there’s any week or day when you absolutely cannot get pregnant (so always use protection if you’re not trying to conceive).
Is sex after ovulation too late to get pregnant?
If a sperm cell doesn鈥檛 fertilize the egg within 12 to 24 hours of being released from the ovary, pregnancy can鈥檛 occur. 1 When you take into consideration this short viability window, sex after ovulation could be too late. (There are, however, other good reasons to still have sex after ovulation when you’re trying to conceive.)
How long after ovulation can you get pregnant?
An egg lives 12-24 hours following ovulation, but sperm can live in the female reproductive system for up to five days after sex. Therefore, having sex from five days before or one day after ovulation can result in pregnancy.
