TTC Misconception

So as most of you know I saw an RE this week for the first time.  I have learned that DH and I have been timing our BD wrong.  He has a low count and every time we have ever conceived it's been when we had sex 1 time in like a 3-4 week period and it was the exact right time.  Since my mc we have been ttc starting day 9 when I have EWCM.  The RE told me that EWCM isn't about how much you see, but what is in your cervix/uterus area.  So since we have been BDing the day before my surge, by the time my surge happens we have wasted his good sperm.  OPKs are good but they are a 24-36 hr window, but that isn't exact enough in some cases.  So, good luck to all of you trying.   It seems there is such a thing as trying too much, timing is EVERYTHING!

Good luck!  When we conceived in March we had only had sex 4-5 times the whole month (the 4th being the day I ovulated).

Thanks for the info. Fingers crossed for you, you're in my thoughts. Sticky, sticky dust.

 I hate the guessing game of TTC! Good luck to you though:)
