Every other day ok?

Ttc and with dh and I schedules it seems every other day is reasonable. Will that make it harder to concieve?

  • every day they say is too much and not necessary, Its putting way to much stress on conceiving every other day is fine. and works out better in terms of fertility. You have to remember sperm can live inside of you for up to 4 days maybe even 6 so those days you don't have intercourse you could fall pregnant regardless of doing it every day or every other day. It only takes one time!!!

  • Every other day is perfect - if you have sex every day that lowers the sperm count (and maybe motility? not sure on that one) and if you go longer in between you have less of a window. Every other day you have a good sperm count, you're not feeling forced by doing it daily, and you hit close to ovulation either way.
