To be honest, we bd just like we normally would. If I get a +opk we will bd that night but we really dont stress or time bd. It takes the passion out of it, and that's no fun for us. So we typically have sex 2-3x a week on average, sometimes more sometimes less depending on if we are wanting it or not.
Some say that the day before, the day of, and two day after O is the best way to up you chances. That's probably close to what I will do this month. We are trying to BD like every other day or so till I am close to ovulating then it will be every day for about 4 or 5 days. And we will continue to BD during the TWW just in case something happens and I don't know.
We do it a couple of days a week or so, when we actually feel like doing it, but when we approach ovulation we just try to do it a bit more often to increase chances.....dont want to start pressuring sex though.....it really stresses men out. My hubby gets upset cause he feels like a robbot when I get obsessed! lol
Honestly I tend to not want to BD much. Once I'm doing it I enjoy it but often have to force myself (and I don't just mean while TTC, I mean normally.) I'm also only starting cycle 2 but we're basically BD every other day and then when signs points to getting close to O we will try for everyday. If I don't get a BFP after a few months though I expect not to do it that much. I would have sex a few times after O just in case I was wrong about the day.

We have sex when we want, up until we know I should ovulate, then we put it on hold. We've been going 2 days before I am supposed to, if I don't ovulate the day I should, then we add in another one or two times.
But we don't every day, or every other day. We've always had a fairly active sex life, we keep with that.
We tried to do every day last cycle and it didn't work out. We ended up doing every other day, which I've heard should be enough. Obviously it wasn't Although, we'll probably average the same this cycle too. We work opposite shifts, so sometimes it's hard to find the time.
