How often should you have sex?

How often should you have sex when TTC? I have heard you should wait a few day so the sperm count can replenish but I am just not sure! Thanks!

  • Sperm will stay inside you for up to 5 days, so it is not necessary to have sex more than 1 or 2 times during ovulation... If you overthink it, stress will overtake you and the fun of having sex!

  • We were told to try for every other day before we went with fertility drugs. When I was on clomid we were told to do it every day during the time I should have been ovulating. Good luck!
