  • Well they say 85% of couples trying get pregnant within a year so I thought maybe there was a statistic for those who had sex every other day

  • You are actually decreasing your chances by having sex so often because his sperm isn't regenerating that fast. I would look into natural family planning and determine exactly when you are ovulating and time sex for the few days before ovulation. Most fertility doctors won't even do testing unless you have been trying for a year and stressing about it only makes it harder.

  • Ok I did not know that. I heard it took 36 hours for sperm to regenerate so thought that would be a safe bet that there would always be semen present if an egg was released

  • You need to get your info from a better source. If you have been trying to conceive for six months and have been unsuccessful it recommend that you see your doc.

  • We have only been trying a couple months. Does anyone know if every three days would be more beneficial ?

  • We plan on having two more kids and I don't want to be pregnant after 30 just my personal preference. I also what the kids to be relatively close in age and not have large gaps between ages. Mine are 6, 3 and 1
