    Hi Rachel,

    To answer your question you can only get pregnant when you are ovulating and the egg has been released and there are sperm present. The egg will survive for 24-48 hours unfertilised and as long as the conditions are right the sperm can live upto 5 days.
    Generally you O 14 days before your next AF is due so if you're not regular as clockwork you need to look for the signs (CM/CP/temp.) so it's quite a good idea to start charting these so you can look for a pattern.
    Everyone is different & can O at different times, sometimes an egg isn't actually released even though we still have an AF!! All a bit strange & complicated :!:
    When I was reading up on everything I was starting to panic & thought I would never manage to conceive as it seemed the chances were so small but after 4 cycles worth I have a bun in the oven!!!!!! :D :D :D

    Best of luck to you hun & sending a flurry of baby dust your way.

    Nicki.x
    P.S hope this helps a bit.
