Every other day the month we conceived.  The month before we did every day, which was exhausting 🙂

Our first week of TTC DH got sick!  Luckily, it looks like I ovulated a little early, right before he got sick.

So, we probably wouldn’t have done every day anyway, maybe every other day during work days and both Sat/Sun if it was close…luckily it still worked.

My OB/GYN suggested every day during the high fertility phase, but no more than once daily.

@Blondiebee:  Are you tracking your temperatures?  You have up until the thermal shift (the spike).

From what I’ve read (keep in mind I’ve never tried to conceive – was just a librarian, and thus involved in some odd research on a frequent basis), having sex everyday makes HIM less fertile.  Every other day being the optimal formula is what my research turned up.

Thanking God for the immediate success with every other day within a slightly wider fertility window (meaning I tacked on  a few extra days of window before and after, just in case. The rest of the month, we weren’t having sex much at all, but that’s b/c I was prone to UTI’s and we were off to Venice on our ‘conceptionmoon’ and didn’t want to deal with getting one too early in our trip.
