I'm reading ''The Impatient Woman's Guide to Getting Pregnant'' and in it she refers to these study:

Levitas, E. et al. (2005). Relationship between the duration of sexual abstinence and semen quality: Analysis of 9,489 semen samples. Fertility and Sterility, 83, 1680 - 1686.

Stanford, J.B. & Dunson, D.B. (2007). Effects of sexual intercourse patterns in time to pregnancy studies. American Journal of Epidemiology, 165, 1088-1095.

With a quick google search with the titles of the names of the first study I found this:
Fertility Neighborhood : Docs Suggest Way to Boost Sperm Quality for ART

Here's an interesting bit: "Avoiding sexual abstinence or abstinence lasting just 1 day [for those with low counts] was related to peak sperm quality," the research group concluded.''
