  • @Loving Angels: Baby Dance(sex)

    I say every other day. I also recommend not stressing and trying so hard. Relax, have fun and it should happen soon.

  • Every other day worked best for us. Anytime we did the every other day method we ended up pregnant if we tried everyday we wouldn't for some reason. I do know that it is FACT that it takes 48-72 hrs for sperm to regenerate so by going every day you aren't giving his supply any time to rebuild.

    Good luck and baby dust!

  • Every other day to allow the amount of sperm to replenish. sperm lives up to three days so there is no need to do it daily unless you enjoy the practice.

  • every other day that way he has atleast 24 hours to build back the sperm

  • Every other day if possible so that the man has a chance to have more sperm supply. That was what our doctor told us. The important part is to have fun and not stress out about it. If you can have it every other day, then great and if not than have it as often as you can and let the nature take its course. It will happen if it is meant to be. Another thing is you can figure out when you are ovulating and do the baby dance that day. Good luck, and I hope that it works out for y'all.

  • Every other day. It does take at least 24 hours for him to build up his sperm, plus sperm can live inside you for a day or so..
