Can you get pregnant after you ovulate if you know you have already ovulated by keeping track is it still possible to get pregnant after you have ovulated.

Well, for starters, actually charting your basal temperatures and cervical mucus to know when you have ovulated is hard, very precise work, and even then works better as a method for couples to become pregnant than to avoid becoming pregnant.

Technically, a woman can only become pregnant if there is an egg to be fertilized, so if you had already ovulated there would be no egg to become fertilized.

That said, a woman can ovulate twice in one month.

The best wayt to use the fertility awareness method is by pairing it with condom use, which should be done to prevent STDs anyhow. Just abstain from sexual activity that poses pregnancy risks during the time you'd be ovulating, and use condoms for all encounters.
