I think that if you have sex every day, you are decreasing the amount of sperm in each ejaculation, making it less likely that you will actually get pregnant.  The male body takes a little while to regenerate sperm supplies.

Our RE told us every other day when I am ovulating. 24 hours is enough time for a man to regenerate a supply. That being said, sperm can live for 48-72 hours once it is in the cervix. Your egg only lasts 12-24 hours. So there are all these things that need to line up in order to get pregnant. (I got this information from here). If you are healthy and have no history of female problems you will most likely have to wait until the Dr. will do any blood tests. Keep in mind that it takes the average healthy woman 6-8 months to get pregnant.

Did you do any preconception counseling?  When we first started trying I went in and my doc tested a bunch of things including immunizations, thyroid function and did a full pap etc, just to make sure everything was optimal for babymaking.  Then she sent me home to have sex :). 

Sometimes it just takes time, so don’t fret too much, even if you do everything “right” a totally healthy woman only have a 20% chance of getting pregnant each month.

I’d also go grab the book ‘taking charge of your fertility’ so that you can learn how to know when you are ovulating. There’s only a MAXIMUM of 5 days (usually less) that you can conceive in a month…

I have heard that you should have sex twice a week to every other day. If you’ve only been off BC for 4 months, though, she’ll probably direct you to actually TRY to get pregnant, not just this “we’ll see how it goes” path. But you can ask some questions on how to time it all up better for sure. If she’s concerned, she may run some tests just to make sure everything else okay. But that being said, the majority of women get pregnant after 6 months, so don’t fret just yet!
