What is your strategy? I’m currently in the FW and we have been BD’ing every day since Friday, with plans to continue this trend until this coming Sunday. I wanted to be extra sure we hit that egg. I casually mentioned this to a (very) close friend who said that she didn’t get her BFP until switching from every day to every other day during her FW. Her theory was that her husband’s sperm reserve wasn’t replenishing between sessions.
So, which do you do? If you have gotten a BFP, how often did you BD during your FW? I wish there was a way to know whether Darling Husband was shooting blanks or not.

We did just about everyday the cycle I got pregnant (I think we missed O-3 bc of schedules).

I had tracked my cycles for about 3-4 months before we started TTC. We got extremely lucky and conceived on the first try. We weren’t able to DTD all the 4-5 days before Ovulation as recommended, but we did O-2 and O-1…luckily one of those days worked! We did make sure to wait a full 24 hours for Darling Husband to umm recharge lol
Best of luck to you!

I wanted to do EOD on this cycle, but we BD on a Sunday, Tuesday and Wendesday. Mainly, cos I got a positive OPK on the Tuesday and knew I needed to get on it! I’m currently waiting for either AF to show up, or a BFP!
If AF shows up, I’ll probably do the same.

My doctor told me EOD, so we stick with that unless the spirit is strongly moving us to do it more often. But in general, it’s EOD.

If you get a chance try watching the documentary “the great sperm race”… you can watch it on Youtube. It’s kinda cheesy but VERY informative. They explain why it is recommended to BD EOD an not everyday. I found that the documentary also gave me a real appreciation for how lucky we all are to be here!! Winning the lottery so to speak 🙂 Good luck!!

After 5 months of trying EOD, I just got my bfp by doing every day 0-4 -3 -2 -1 O and O+1. In fact we managed 7 times in 6 days (never been done in 5 years together. Quantity rather than quality worked for us.
