    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    okay I did one of those online O test and they all said I ovulate on 3/25 which is today. I just want to know am I ovulating all day or is there a time frame in the day when I need to have sex? I've heard if you have sex before and on the day you o you will have a better chance because sperm can live inside you for a certain amount of days if my facts are right.

    You do not ovulate all day but there is no way to know exactly when you ovulate unless you are having an ultrasound at the exact moment it happens.

    An egg lives for about 24 hours and sperm can live up to 5 days so if you have sex anytime during the 4 days before, the day of, or even the day after you ovulate, pregnancy is possible.
