  • OB told us every other day, so let the sperm count build back up to a good level.

  • Every other or else the sperm count will be lower and what swimmers there are will be less active. Also, if you are fertile, they live up to 36 hours.

  • This was our first month really trying and we did every day - most people seem to recommend every other day because it helps the sperm to be more ... good? I don't know the right word.

    I would try every other day!

  • I think every other is ideal, but hey might as well enjoy the practice if your man is up to it.
