We are trying to have a baby does it matter how often we have sex?

According to the ovulation chart, I will start this sunday, my husband says we shouldn't have sex all this week because it will lower his sperm count. (I thought that applied if you had sex 3-4 times a day or something) We have the most time at night soooo. My thing is can we? I don't wanna take any chances on missing that egg! I have the ovulation pee sticks (hehe) so I can time it right, but what do you ladies think! Help me get preggers please! LOL

  • Hummmm, Well they say that if you want a girl you should wait till your egg is strong and his the weakest, meaning more sex during that time for you. If you want a boy you should wait till your eggs the weakest and his strongest, once every 2 to 3 days. My husband and I and 2 other couples did it that way and we all got boys. Goodluck finding out..............

  • I would do it once a day but on the days you know your ovulating you should do it twice. My husband and I had sex once a day for a whoe month cause I wasnt sure on my cycle and we got prego the firt month!! I was shocked, and we got the girl we wanted!

  • I used those ovulation test sticks, too, since I was all over the map. When we were trying to conceive, we did it once a day in the morning - and I lied w/ my butt jacked up on some pillows for about 1/2 hour after so everybody stayed in place since I was so paranoid...LOL! It was truly a lovely site to see...

    Good luck!

  • Well i herd that if your guy just saves it up untill "that special moment" it doesn't work. So go forth and "do it" lol. I pre sure what got me pregnant was having sex in the morning. I herd it was the best time and that the sperm count was higher. Hope this helps!!
