So, DH and I have had sex everyday day this cycle except today and yesterday. I'm on CD14 and I noticed I had EWCM earlier today and tonight. He's sound asleep though and had a bad day at work so doing the BD tonight just isn't going to happen. Will two days between BD ruin out efforts? Or am I just being crazy? TTC has definietly put me on the path to insanity!!

Well having sex every day can be just as bad as not having enough sex. The recommended times to have sex while TTC is every other day to give sperm time to reguvenate and be of good quality. It can be hurting you to have sex every day so it will be fine.

I've actually read that's not true. I read having sex every other day will produce more sperm but, having sex every day produces better sperm. Quality vs quantity type situation. I dunno.

My doctor told me it was the other way around so Ill go with that. But every man and the quantity and quality of their sperm is different.

Sperm typically stay alive in the vagina/uterus for 3-5 days............you'll just have a higher change of conceiving a girl if you do ovulate today or tomorrow is all!!!

My doctor told me when I was trying to conceive my last child that as long as DH doesn't have a low sperm count that sex every day was fine. We've been doing it every other day for a few months with no luck, so we thought we'd try every day and see how that works. However, I am getting tired of sex lol so next month we'll go back to every other day. Thanks for the advice :)

I read that, that is only true in couples where the male has low sperm count. Otherwise its perfectly fine to have sex everyday.  I however believe that every other day is just fine as well..
