With my particular situation timing is very important since we will only have 1 shot maybe 2 shots a cycle to get it right. So my question is, what is the best time to DTD? 1 day before O, 2 days before O. day of O? or in terms of lh surge..is it better to do it 12 hours after or 36 hours after?

Sperm can live inside you for 5, maybe 6 days max! The hardy ones of course! Most die within 72 hours even if they make it through the cervix into the fallopian tubes - a long journey. Apparently some sperm may lay dormant for a few days and then when the egg is released they get super excited and it revilitises them haha…who knows! I read this online because we only got 2 chances this month as SO was away during that time so we BD on day of + opk and day after. Anyhow I'd say you get 2 shots, I'd say the day of the OPK and the day after.
