  • Have you been trying a long time? If you just started, continue the way you always do and see what happens. If nothing happens for a few months, the you need to concentrate your efforts around when you ovulate.

  • Having lots of sex improves your chances of getting pregnant as far as I know...Why would it hurt your chances of conceiving?
    I would continue to do what you're doing, especially increase the amount right after your period and for the next couple of weeks. This is when you're most fertile.

  • Do it every 3 days naturally,and use a non spermicidal condom on the days in between.

  • Sperm is continuously being produced so its not like he's going to run out. It's not like you have sex & then he's shooting blanks the next day lol

  • "Couples who tried to get pregnant were previously told to have sex once every other day during their fertile days. But studies have shown you can improve your chances if you have sex once a day every day (as long as his sperm are OK) during the fertile 4-5 days prior to, and the day of, ovulation."
