i know kinda stupid, but i need to ask

when your trying to get pregnant should you have sex every day or every other day. i was thinking that every day will make sure that there is sperm inside when the egg drops. since the egg will only live for a few hours. Just asking though

  • actually if you are having a hard time concieving the less you have sex the better. Figure out when you ovulate and wait till then to go at it. Also you can buy ovulation sticks at walmart for like 15 bucks (you get like 10 sticks) you pee on them like a pregnancy test and it tells you if your ovulating. Good luck with the baby making.

  • They say that the sperm isn't as good if you have sex everyday; but they also say try like hell as often as possible. So I would do either; one way or another it should work in time. GL!
