The best days are o-1 and o-2 (so day before and two days before) you ovulate so spermies are ready to fertilize the egg right when it’s released. Every other day is sufficient and gives you the same chances as every day. It doesn’t hurt to have sex every day unless your husband has a low sperm count and needs time to replenish the supply. Lol. You only ovulate for 12-24 hours. Keep temping every day at the same time as soon as you wake up (no moving or eating or drinking) after at least three hours of sleep and wait for a temp spike. If you don’t keep temping you won’t know if you ovulate or not.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  I’m curious as to how you’re using your temp to predict O? Temp can only be used to confirm O. And everything Glittermoon said is correct. O-2 and O-1 are statistically the best days to BD, but BDing on the 4-5 days prior to O, O, and sometimes (rarely) O+1 can also result in pregnancy. She’s also correct in saying that you only ovulate on 1 day, but prior to O you have a window of fertile days (not O days) during which BDing may result in pregnancy because the sperm can survive until the egg arrives. Good luck! FX for you!

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  I just learned today, by my OBGYN, that you should start BD’ing every other day for 2 weeks as soon as your period is finished to increase your chances of conceiving.  Iam in the same boat as you, learning as i go ๐Ÿ˜‰ GL xoxo

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  My temp dropped yesterday and today, and cycle wise (day 13), it seems like I should be pretty close, but OPK says no.  Who knows!?!?

My hubby and I do every other day with the occasional back-to-back day thrown in and so far, we have been pregnant 6 times (sadly 5 miscarriages).  Good luck!
