    We are following the sperm meets egg plan. Every other day starting on cd 8 (today for us) and then once we get positive opk, that day and the next two days in a row. Skip a day, and one more day after that. It requires you to use opk/know when you ovulate. However, if I never get a positive opk we are going with every other day starting today, and then probably every day once my fertile week starts next Wednesday. That way we are continuously keeping a “supply” there lol. And according to various medical advice floating around on the interwebs, as long as your partner doesn’t have know low sperm count, doing it everyday won’t deplete his sperm count.

    @Brittanyg20: Every other day. Though I’m still new to TTC and this month I used OPKs and BD’d as soon as I got a +.

    I got my BFP in October after doing it every other day during my window, though for some reason I just didn’t catch my positive OPK so I have no idea when I ovulated. We just kept up with the every other day pretty much until I got my BFP, in case my ovulation was delayed.

    Almost 30w pregnant here.. DH and I would just BD every day, we would want it anyway so we just did. As long as there is no issue of one of you getting tired (feeling like sex is a chore) and no issues with him producing, then I say do it every day.

    With my current pregnancy, we only hit O-2 of the fertile window so realisticaly, every other day is more than enough.

    We did it everyday. But we missed the O day. I knew it was the O day by charting my temps but hubby just wasn’t available that day due to work, etc. Cry So no baby.

    However, next time I plan to do every other day and definitely day of O. Reason being that I think I ‘broke’ hubby. Embarassed His ‘thing’s’ been hurtin’ from doing every single day for nearly 2 weeks. We were trying to set a personal record + TTC and uh….. let’s not even go there. Lol!

    Last month we BD every other day during the FW until I got my positive OPK. Then we BD on 0-2, 0-1 and 0+1. I know exactly the day we ovulated as confirmed by OPKs and FF. Sadly it did not lead to a BFP despite our well planned timing. We will probably do the same thing this month with BD on O day as well.
