  • This is a case where less is more. If you have sex too frequently it may actually decrease your chances of getting pregnant because your husband will not have time to produce an adequate amount of sperm if he doesn't get a break.

  • If you have sex a lot during the day or week you lower your chances as his sperm count won't have time to recoup.

  • I would tell you not to have sex that much its going to decrease the chances of getting pregnant.. I was told to start baby making your fifth day of your period .. meaning first full red blood day would be day 1 on the fifth day have sex every other day for 10 days .. that is when your most to ovulate!
    good luck ,, it worked for us ...

  • I have heard that you should wait at least 2 days in between especially if you are having trouble ttc. AND ORGASM REALLY DOESNT MAKE A DIFFERENCE...Research it.

  • 1st of you having an orgasm will not up your chances... I asked the doctor and she told me that there is no proof that it has ever helped. My ob told me to have sex ever other day from day 10-20 of your cycle. Like the other ladies said the sperm needs to bulid back up.
