Q: Is there only one day to get pregnant each month?
A: The human egg is only viable for 12 to 24 hours. However, that doesn't mean a woman can get pregnant only from making love on one day a month. A woman can get pregnant from making love during any of 6 fertile days, the 5 days before and the day of ovulation. Sperm can survive up to five days inside the woman's reproductive tract, so a women can get pregnant from making love any day during a 6-day period, with the highest chance of getting pregnant from making love during the 2 days before and the day of ovulation.
