User :   hello. i have a question. i wanted to know can seven day old sperm fertilize an egg. back in 09 i had slept with a man on dec 5th and i had slept with my boy friend before and during my ovulation. My doctor told me that the day of conception was dec 12th. does my boyfriend have a better chance of being the father of my child.

Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here. Let me read what you have typed.
Doctor :   when was your last menstrual period before the intercourse?
User :   nov 27
Doctor :   what is the usually gap between your 2 periods? and how nay days bleeding do you have?
Doctor :   were your periods regular before?
User :   30 days and 5 days long
Doctor :   were you on any birth control measures before?
User :   no
User :   my doctor had did the ultra sound and it said dec 12
Doctor :   ok. for a 30 day cycle, ovulation wil be between 8th-14th day of period cycle taking day 1 as the first day of your bleeding
Doctor :   since your period was on Nov 27th, chances for ovulation would be between 5th-14th Dec
Doctor :   so any intercourse between these dates would result in conception
Doctor :   and the father of the child will be the person with whom you had intercourse during these dates.
User :   so than the person t the begaining could be the father
User :   i mean the first person could be the father
Doctor :   no, i would say that your boyfriend would be the father, as you said that you had intercourse with boy friend before and during your ovulation
User :   yeah. i just wanted to make sure i was thinking of the process
User :   correctly
Doctor :   on 5th Dec, the chances of egg being present is still less, and even though we assume that the egg is alive for conception for 4 days, the intercourse on 5th would tell that sperms can be present till 7th
Doctor :   and could result in pregnancy if united with egg
User :   becuase from what i had read. an egg only has a life span of 24 hrs
Doctor :   but if egg release happened later than 7th Dec, then the chances of the person who had intercourse after 6th or 7th Dec would be likely to be father of child
User :   is that correct
Doctor :   egg can be alive upto 4 days.
Doctor :   if it is a healthy egg
Doctor :   please provide your age, location, height, weight, details of past medical illness if any.
User :   no illnesss, 31, san XXXXXXXX weight 138
Doctor :   on what dates you had intercourse with your boyfriend?
Doctor :   this detail will help us narrow down the possibilities of who is the possible father of the child.
User :   sex dec 5th, 7, 8 11 amd 12
User :   height 5.3
Doctor :   and when was the intercourse with the other person then?
User :   5th at 2am. i was very drunk
Doctor :   in this case, the chances that your boyfriend is the father of child is more probable.
Doctor :   it can be confirmed with DNA tests.
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said?
User :   he doesn't know about the other man but how can i get a dna test
User :   that will not hurt me
Doctor :   no it wil not hurt you, it will be a ultrasound guided procedure.
Doctor :   is there anything else i can help you with?
User :   i have shortness of breathing
User :   is that ok
Doctor :   if your boyfriend is not aware of it, then it is better that you keep quiet about it
User :   is that normal
Doctor :   as chances of your boyfriend being the father is anyways high
Doctor :   shortness of breath during pregnancy
