The green squares are your fertile days and the light green colour indicates the day you ovulate, without temping you will never  know for sure when you ovulated though….I am an EOD person otherwise it becomes too much of a ‘chore’…commenting to follow also 🙂

we did every other day after taking clomid, but we upped it for two days in a row after we got a positive OPK.

still waiting to see how that turns out for us.


according to my doctor, you should only do it twice in a row maximum and then go back to every other day to give sperm a chance to build up and grow.

We did it every day for 2 months and every other day for 1 month.  The every other day month worked for us.

Unless your partner has sperm problems there’s no reason you can’t BD every day of the FW but it’s not necessary. I got my 1st BFP having hit O-3, O-1 & O (miscarried) & my 2nd BFP only at O-2 of my fertile window so I guess if it’s going to happen it will.

The dillema with not temping is that, without confirming ovulation, there’s a huge margin of error.

@PumpkinSpiceChai:  I watched a documentary that says that every other day is better than every day because the sperm will be more concentrated every other day. I don’t know if that’s actually true but it seemed pretty legit.
