I have been charting my cycle for several months now. Here is my dilema:

My cycle is 30-33 days

My first day of my last period was November 7th.

I started ovulating on Thanksgiving day (Nov. 24)

I had unprotected sex with my partner Sat. (Nov. 26) morning.

What do you guys think?

Once you ovulate, you are only fertile for about 24 hours. If you really did ovulate on the 24th, it's unlikely that you would have gotten pregnant from the unprotected sex on the 26th.

That being said, if you had any unprotected sex before ovulation, you could get pregnant. Semen can live inside of your body for a week or so. Just so you know for in the future.

If your period doesn't show up when it's supposed to, take a test. Good luck!

Have you taken a test yet? If not, you should go ahead and take one to see what it says. You mentioned in your first post that sometimes your cycle is 33 days long, so it may just be that you are having a longer cycle, but you might as well test and see. Good luck!
