Evening all, this is my first post in here, used to be in hitched. H and I are just starting TTC and I have what I am sure is a dumb question can I get a BFP from DTD a week before AF? My cycles have not been the avg 28 days since coming off the pill 6 months ago but have been using other contraception since then. My cycles can vardeform 28 to 34 days which is the reason for my confusion. Apologies for the lack of knowledge but very new to the TTCing!

It would be unusual but you might if you have a very short luteal phase (LP). The luteal phase is the time from ovulation (when you can conceive) to your period. I had a huge range in my cycles from 27 - 42 days and yet my LP was always 16 days which meant that my ovulation wasn't the standard 14 days after previous period and would vary with each cycle.

Ok thank you, AF due tomorrow (ish) so will soon find out!

Welcome to MD! I used Fertility Friend to help get my BFPs. You just pop all the dates in of the days when AF has turned up and it'll give you a rough window of when you ov. You'll also become more aware of what your body is up to and may notice changes, like EWCM when you ov, which helps the sperm on their way to the egg. Good luck!
PS - sorry if this is rambly, I'm quite tired and I probably should be asleep
