Every other day is the best. It allows time for the sperm to build back up.

We do every day. There's many studies I've seen that says every day does not weaken the sperm count but keeps the sperm at its most vital. "saving" sperm means you get a lot of dead sperm right off the bat. We do it every day for the week of O and every other day to every day before and after.

My midwife said every day should be fine, but I'm doing every other day during the fertile week up until I get the surge on my opk tests, then we will go everyday. DH works nights and can't have him too tired on the flight line ;)

 We try for every other day, but if we're both in the mood, it's not going to stop us from going two days in a row.

My DF is def aware of my fertile time lol but we don't worry about BD'ing we normally don't go more than 2 days without so we jus BD like we would any time of the month! Sometimes twice a day! I love that TTC hasn't put stress on our BD!

I also read that every day is the way to go. We bd several times a day when I'm in my fertile window. I also layed with a pillow under my butt for about 15 minutes the last cycle.

Bedding every other day is better because it gives your Hubby's sperm plenty of time to build up!

This could be your problem. I dont know your story but if you have been doing this for awhile now I would suggest bedding just once. It may be your not letting your DH sperm build up enough.
