  • Since you are fertile the 2-3 days before ovulation, the sperm have enough 'food' to live off of for approximately 3 days, I would go 2 days before, then the day of then skip a day then again. The other thing is, if you have sex everyday, the amount of sperm decreases since it takes time for him to repopulate them and it gets diluted (for lack of a better word)
