Pregnancy After Ovulation. Getting pregnant after ovulation is possible, but is limited to the 12-24 hours after your egg has been released. If the sperm is there when or shortly after an egg is released, you can quickly become pregnant in the day after ovulation.

Keeping this in view, how long after ovulation do you conceive?

If fertilization does not occur the egg dissolves after 24 hours. At this time your hormone levels will decrease and your uterine lining will begin to shed about 12-16 days from ovulation. This is menstruation (menstrual period) and brings us back to day 1 of your cycle. The journey then begins all over again.

How long are you fertile after ovulation?

Because, though sperm can live as long as three to five days inside a woman's body, an egg's life span is only about 12 to 24 hours. By having intercourse before you ovulate, as well as on the day of and the day after ovulation, you maximize your chances of getting pregnant.
