Unfortunately for many couples getting pregnant is a mathematical matter rather than something that happens to you. You must first know your menstrual cycle, then you have to calculate when you are ovulating and your most fertile days. Then there is also that sperm cells and an egg cell do not live forever. Timing is everything. And this timing is therefore mainly focused on your fertile days. But when are they? And how many days after ovulation can you become pregnant? We are going to tell you!
Does sex make sense after ovulation?
We will no longer be wiping around and immediately answer the pressing question that reads: How many days after ovulation can you become pregnant? The answer: a maximum of 1 day. A mature egg cell only lives 12 to a maximum of 24 hours. It is possible that you have ovulation in the evening and that this is not fertile in the morning.
What also does not help is that a sperm cell is not directly at the egg cell after ejaculation. Before they reach the finish, the sperm cells first travel 12 to 24 hours. If you are released after ovulation to become pregnant, then they are usually already too late. The chance of becoming pregnant a few days after ovulation is therefore nil. So small that it is actually not a gamble.
Calculate fertile days
Going to work just a few days after ovulation therefore has only a small chance of success. But when do you have to be insured? To answer this question you will have to keep track of your menstrual cycle so that you know how many days it contains. On average women have a menstrual cycle of 28 days, but that is average. Your cycle can be longer, shorter or irregular. To properly map your cycle it is useful to keep track of this for a few months. Then count the number of days between the first day of your period until the day before your next menstruation. If you are on a Tuesday, you have to count until Monday.
If you have a fairly regular cycle (it may be that it sometimes deviates a day) then you calculate the day of your ovulation. Your ovulation takes place 14 days before the first day of your next menstruation. If you were on 28 April, your ovulation was 14 April. That is why it is important that you know your menstrual cycle, because you have to calculate ovulation on the basis of your next menstruation. You have to be able to predict this.

How many days after ovulation can you become pregnant? That chance is therefore very small!
If you have an irregular cycle, it is very difficult to find your fertile days. You can then do the following:
- Purchase an ovulation test. Your test will be positive two days before ovulation. You are then the most fertile.
- Have a lot of sex! To make it safe for the insecure you can also have community every 2 or 3 days. Then you have a great chance that you also have fellowship on your fertile days.
- Watch out for these signals: thicker / more elastic cervical mucus (secretion), ovulation pain (menstruation cramps), higher body temperature, higher libido. All these signs are signs that you are sitting around your ovulation. So get started!

How long do the sperm cells live?
The reason that you are fertile for a few days before ovulation is due to the life span of the sperm cell. Sperm cells can survive at least 1 to 2 days in the uterus. The better the quality of the seed, the longer it can survive. The real strong rascals can survive up to 5 days. But you should not go directly from that.
Want to get pregnant free than in your fertile week every day or every other day. Spending your partner once may not be enough. To increase the chance of a pregnancy, the more seed the better.
Symptoms after fertilization for implantation
After your fertile week, it is of course super exciting. And that will remain for a while, because unfortunately it does not make sense to do a pregnancy test immediately. First the egg has to make another way towards the uterus (and that takes an agonizing long time) and then another implantation has to take place. Some women may notice the following symptoms that an implantation is taking place:
- Stomach pain: Small cramps.
- Intestinal bleeding: This bleeding is less severe and shorter than normal menstruation.
As you can read, there are few women who feel the implantation pain, most of them do not notice. Then pay attention to the following symptoms, these symptoms may be caused by your pregnancy:
- Sensitive breasts.
- A most important indication: your menstruation is not forthcoming. At that moment it is time for a test.
