Thank you for posting a query.

Chance of getting pregnant depends on several factors. First is obviously ovulation. If normal ovulation occurs, the chance of pregnancy is very high. Secondly, other factors like sperm count, morphology, and viability of sperm also have effects. I assume that all are normal. Then, as I told previously, chance of getting pregnant will depend on ovulation.

Normally, in a woman having regular period at 28 days interval, ovulation occurs between 10 to 18 th day. Here first day of last menstrual period is counted as day 1.

So, you are in period where you have maximum chances of pregnancy, if normal ovulation occurs. For confirmation of ovulation, follicular study is important. It will let you know whether your ovulation has already occurred or it is due. The next action will be according to the follicular study.

Best of luck.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know if you have any more question.

I had the scan day before yesterday and the doctor said that the egg is ready to be released. Gave an Hucog 5000 Injection for the egg to be released and asked us to have contact at around 11 in the night yesterday. Also to have contact continuously for 3 days starting today. We had a contact yesterday night. Second scan was done today and the doctor said that the egg is released but dont know if it has fused with sperm or not. She said that she is not seeing that released egg and asked us to wait until the next period date. If I get period asked us to consult her the very next day else wait for 2 weeks and then consult.

We are in a dilemma on whats happening? She said that she is not seeing the released egg. So does that mean it has fused with the sperm or are there any chances that it went away like that? Can u tell us clearly please.

Thank you for writing back.

I can understand your concern.

Here, i want to tell you that when an ovum is released, it can be seen but after its release, it is difficult sometimes to visualize.

So, may be the ovum has been fertilized already. But, it may not be visible. But, the opposite situation may also occur.

It is very difficult to know what really has happened to the released ovum. It can only be definitely said on or after the expected date of the next period. So, wait for that day. In the mean time pray for the best.

One more thing is to continue trying for pregnancy for more 2 days. Because, an ovum has 72 hours of life span. If that is not fertilized already, the act will increase chance of getting pregnant. It is the time of highest chance.

Lastly, best of luck.

Hope you have your answers.
