For those of you that were actively, purposefully trying to conceive and got pregnant, how often did you try? Once a day or once every other day? I hear different things.
And for those of you currently trying (not just NTNT or just not using proection), how often do you try?
And I know there are quite a few of you who have gotten pregnant without really trying (lucky you!!) but I’m specifically asking those who were REALLY trying and had some sort of schedule.

We were BDing like every other day for about a month because I had no idea when I was going to O or anything. It worked 🙂

I still have a month or so to actively try again but our schedule will be every other day during O wk and the day after.

Wow! Thanks for the responses. It seems that every other day has more people… 72% right now between TTC and those who have conceived. Hmmmmm!

We have sex everyday and I know this may sound a little strange, but the only thing I did different the cycle I conceived was I litterally put my legs and pelvis in up in the air for 15 minutes afterwards.. I litterally was rolled onto my shoulders and holding everything up with my hands.
I actually got the idea from another bee who said she got pregnant that cycle doing the same thing. So it must do a little something extra lol.

I charted, temped, and used the Clearblue Fertility Monitor. It worked!

we werent trying, but we got pregnant on my second cycle off BC (after being on for 6 years or so) and we were “doing it” about three times a week. I was not keeping track of my fertile days, but we were pretty regular about 3x a week.

The only thing I did was look for the change in cervical mucus because taking my temps was always crazy. We had sex every day and it took 3 cycles to finally get pregnant. 15 weeks later into the preganancy …. sex? whats that? ::sigh::

Hmmm let’s just say that during my fertile period, my hormones were through the roof and I litterally NEEDED to get it on. In the morning, then the same night, then the next morning… for a few days like that. Wasn’t thinking “baby” as I was thinking “hubs is hot!”. I swear if it had been possible, I would have rented a hotel room to meet him during our lunch break.
So.. yeah.. Stopped the pill, got one regular period and got pregnant right after – it would have been pretty hard not to get at least one sperm into my egg, I was full of them!

@JustlikeHeaven: do you notice a crazy drop in your sex drive?

Not TTC yet. Thanks for starting this thread. I’m interested in the answers, too.

@mwitter80: I’ve heard of several people doing that, my sister got pregnant the month she did that as well.
I charted, so for about 5 days it was every day, before/after that, it wasn’t as often. I know they said every other day was more effective but I didn’t ever know the exact date of ovulation, so we just did every day. It took four months for us.

Before my m/c we had sporadic sex and got pregnant on cycle 3. After my m/c we had sex every other day until after I O’d and we got pregnant on cycle 3. I just laid in bed afterwards (no legs in the air) and also used mucinex during my fertile time to increase CM. I’m convinced it’s all about having enough stuff up there when you O!

We’re trying every other day this time around. We had sex everyday these last two cycles. The only catch is, this cycle is at 31 days without ovulation so the every other day thing is driving us crazy.

Honestly, I had sex about 4 times a week for about a month or two. Even though I was charting, I didn’t really pay much attention to my O day that month. All we remember is that we had a good time making Junior. lol
