Am I really pregnant yet?
At 2 weeks pregnant, you’re still not quite pregnant, but you are getting closer. During week two, you are ovulating and it’s after this point that you have the opportunity to become pregnant.
That doesn’t mean that you have to wait to have sex until after you ovulate – feel free to get your party started! Sperm can actually live inside of your uterus for as long as six to seven days under ideal conditions.
However, there are a bunch of different factors that affect the life span of the average sperm. First of all, for sperm to survive past a few hours, they must make it to your cervix. At the cervix, there is mucus that helps to increase the longevity of the sperm.
Increase your pregnancy chances
From this point, the sperm must pass through your cervix and into your uterus. As each day passes, more of the initial sperm die, the average sprem only living for one to three days. However, it only takes one to get pregnant!
So what can you do to increase your chances? Mainly, keep having sex both before and after you think that you are ovulating. Hopefully that’s the fun part.
If you want to be more confident about when you are ovulating, consider trying an Ovulation Predictor Kit (OPK). There are several on the market and quite a few choices at your local drug store.
As with many products, it can be tempting to go for a more economical product and for many women, these tests meet their needs. For those of you who are looking for a more exact answer and less guess work, there are digital monitors that provide an exact reading and store your personal data for you. Needless to say the digital option is definitely the more expensive of the two.
