User:no i want to get pregnant
User:right now no
Doctor:Let me give you a summary of your complaint.
User:how many days sperm can live
Doctor:You had been having regular periods till two months prior. That was 31 days. But now you are having it only every 43 days. And you want to get pregnant.
User:yes doctor
User:from last two months its 43 days
Doctor:Let me guide you now.
Doctor:Usually the sperm lives for around 24-36 hours. It is almost same with the egg released in the female system.
Doctor:So you can say that, if, ovulation takes place around 15th day in a cycle, if the sperm is present within 36 hours prior to or after that, then there is a high chance of getting pregnant.
Doctor:The only way of getting that correct would be to have sex on every alternate days in the middle of the cycle.
Doctor:Have you understood what I explained till now?
Doctor:Are you there?
User:yes doctor
User:yes doctor
Doctor:Is everything clear now?
User:yes doctor
Doctor:Hope I had been able to help you.
Doctor:Is there anything else I can assist you with?
User:but if we had sex in once a week....that might get problem
User:yes doctor its so helpful
Doctor:In that case, chances of fertilization may be less.
Doctor:So my personal advise to you would be to try more frequently.
Doctor:is there anything else I can assist you on?
Doctor:I hope I had been able to answer all your queries.
