TMI Question

TTC and I was wondering which sperm count is better:

Sperm that is been sitting in the balls for a day

or Sperm that has been sitting in the balls for a few days.

I know it is totally silly, but I'm trying really hard to get preggo.

  • Assuming no fertility issues, the quantity of sperm is about the same. Quality of sperm, though, can suffer if you have sex more than every other day or so.

  • They should be about equal as long as the man has no issues in that area.

  • If your man doesn't have a sperm count issue it's perfectly fine to have sex 1 time every 24 hours.

    Sperm that has been sitting there a few days and sperm that has been there for a day is about the same BECAUSE not having sex for too long can actually harm the sperm count and quality.

    The longest you should go is two days.

    Having sex a thousand times a day is going to lower sperm count. One time a day is fine. If your man has sperm count issues then have sex every other day.

  • Sperm that's been sitting for a few days can actually start to degrade.

  • They say that the more you have sex the less potent the sperm should hold off a few days and have sex when your sure your ovulating for maximum potency. GL
