Ovulation and Pregnancy??
I went for a scan on 5th March and the gyne said that it looked like a follicle was developing in my ovary. We had sex on the 6th and i went for another scan today the 9th and there is no follicle. Do you think that i had sex at the right time and how long will sperm survive, so if i ovulated on the 8th, could i be pregnant?

It sounds like you had sex at the right time. Sperm last about 72 hours on average.
