I'm just asking this question to try and compare the tactics dh and I use to some of you other ladies. I don't know how often most couples bd when ttc. My dh and I have a very "active" life in that department and we really go at it after AF goes away. But I have noticed it starts to slow down just for a couple days right around ovulate! It's like we tired ourselves out or something. For the last couple months we didn't even bd on cycle day 14 or 15. Which is usually when I ovulate. Another issue is that dh is the energizer freakin bunny! Sometimes we go 2-3 times a day and he sometimes has an "o" 3 or 4 times in one session. I am starting to think he is ejaculating too much during bd and maybe thats why we are having an issue. I mean is it possible he is being depleted of most his sperm and by the time ovulation rolls around he doesn't have many left? I mean this literally happens every month. I have to try and keep him off me so much but it gets hard. Some how the thought of us ttc really turns him on even more then what he normally is, which is trouble for me, lol. I mean how often do you guys bd with dh during these ttc months and is it as drastic as my situation? Do you think this is part of our issue?
Ejaculating that many times each session is a bit much. It'd probably be better to dtd every other day between cd10 and cd18. That way you for sure have ovulation coverd, the sperm will have time to replenish and you won't tire out as much.

Thanks for your suggestion. We will try that from now on and see if it helps us any.
Yeah I didn't think it was a very good thing. We are going to try every other day or just a couple times a week until ovulation time comes around. Thanks guys for the advice. You girls are really great!
We pretty much bd every day till around cd12 then slow down to every other day till after ovulation then pick up the pace again. During O i like to keep it at the every other day speed to allow his sperm to build up as the gurls have said
