Our instructions for the first SA were very clear - we were told to abstain for three days. The urologist though just said no less than two and no more than seven. Should we plan for 3 days again so it will be directly comparable to the first? Or is there any benefit in trying a different amount of days to see if that makes things better/worse? Or does it not matter that much and we should just do it whenever the mood strikes during that week sometime, as long as it's before the deadline? TIA!

The med nerd in me says to abstain the three days. But I wouldn't go longer than that.

Good luck!

Ditto everyone else.

We're always told between 2-5, and we do 3 always.
