  • IMO if you aren't sure just have sex as much as possible!

  • its better to do it every other day because the sperm are stronger and there are more of them if you wait a day. There are a lot of ovulation calculators online that you can use that can tell you the days that you ovulate. I know has one, you just put in the day of your last period and they will calculator your most fertile days. Good luck!

  • If you do it everyday (or more) then your man might have a low sperm count by the time you ovulate. You should slow down and go for every other day like the PP said. has some good info on figuring out when you are ovulating and checking your cervical fluid.

    Good luck!

  • Actually I was watching that new show the doctors today and it was talking about how to get pregnant. The gyno on their said the best way was to have sex 2 days before you ovulate the day you ovulate and the 2 days after. She also said having sex all of the time wont help because you need to let him get more little guys (lol) also she said there are much more sperm if you have sex in the morning! Hope this helps! :)
