can i be?
I have been off the pill for 3 months now and i had my last period on the 13th September and 10 days later i had unprotected sex - what is my percentage/chance of falling pregnant during this time? I would also like to find out if a mans sperm count drops as he gets older - he is 41 years old - or would we still have a good chance of falling pregnant.

Dear Maybebaby
A Man's spermcount can function normally up into his old age - your partner is still a spring-chicken!! Your most fertile time is about 12-16 days after the first day of menstruation so the chances are good.
