  • They say every other day is better, because everyday could reduce his sperm count. We do every other in hopes that we'll get lucky this month! Good luck!

  • I have heard that it is best to have sex every other day, better sperm quality. Your egg last for 12 to 24 hours after you ovulate before it starts to break down.

  • I say track your ovulation days down and save those sperm for the WHOLE week around your ovulation days. That seems like the best bet to me (it worked for me!).

  • I learned in my woman studies class that sperm can live up to five day so every other day is fine.
