How often do you ladies have sex with husbands / boyfriends when TTC? Me and DH have consistently done it every other day, and twice we've done it two days in a row. His sperm count is totally lower if I only give him 24 hours, I can tell a big difference in the amount.

What about you guys? Every day? Every other day? Or just around ovulation?

Well, I am a horn dog, and if it was not for the 2 weeks apart (one week together one week not together) that we have, we would totally be DTD every freaking day, several times smh...I know there are issues with this lol!!! Maybe I am in my prime...idk lol...

I used to have sex every other day while TTC in the past, but I did read that it really did not matter, the more sex you have the better your odds are. Good Luck!

Last cycle we DTD every other day through ovulation.(BFN)

This cycle we are DTD every day for the whole cycle. We missed a day last week but I wasn't in a fertile time so I think we are covered.

I'll let you know if it works, LOL.

DH has a lower sperm count so we BD every other day once AF leaves.

It is different every cycle, depepnding on how much we are working, how tired we are and what mood I am in lol. We dont do it the week AF is on as my mood is in the ''kill everyone'' mode lol, the week after is Ovulation week, and we do it whenever we feel like it. Sometimes it has been every day, others every other day, others a few times a day lol, generally speaking around O time I feel a lot ''sexier'' and I just wanna do it all the time (sorry), thats just my body and hormones talking lol. After O, we normally used to do it a couple of times a week more or less, whenever we felt like it, but the last couple of cycles I have been getting sooooo obsessed about having a baby, that I dont seem to wanna do anything until I know the results....The 2ww is one of my worst phases at the moment lol!

I read that if you have sex every other day than that will be perfect for TTC. I think each ejaculate will have the highest count if you have sex every other day. But once daily does not usually hurt your chances of TTC. So I think either is fine and I would not worry about it.

We dont plan it, when we dtd we normally do it and feel like it. Naturally we dtd 2-3x a week (Been that way for years) but with his schedule we just do it when we can. Once it's O time I let him know and we usually add in an extra if we can get it.

This is us as well, we have a fairly active sex life when not TTC. The only difference now is since we're trying to sway for a girl (i know everyones opinion on the timing thing is different) we cut it off about 2-4 days before ovulation is supposed to happen. Although, I'm supposed to O today and we had sex last night. So we'll see what happens. But we've never actually let TTC dictate how often we have sex.

We've only been doing it around O time, but as soon as AF is gone (today is CD1) we're going to do it about every other day. Maybe a little more around O. Generally DH needs a break and can't DTD more than 2-3 days in a row. I am glad we'll be on vacation during my O time this cycle so hopefully we'll have more luck this time!
