    Every day or every other day is plenty. Multiple times a day isn’t necessary – and will wear you out and possibly make BD not fun anymore 🙁

    My OBGYN said no more than every other day or else it depletes his semen reserve. I’m sure every day would be fine. But definitely not multiple times per day!

    I got pregnant with O-4, O-2, O-1 and O. I dont think BD multiple times a day is necessary just try to get the few days before O and continue BD until O confirmed.

    We did a mix of every day and every other day leading up to and around ovulation. Just based on our energy levels. Best of luck to you!

    Woohoo for O! How were the clomid side effects? We try to hit at least EOD, I’d think ED/EOD is fine. Multiple times a day is not necessary, and I think there is research that it may actually hurt your chances. 

    We got pregnant with our first daughter with intercourse on O-3, O-1, and O+1. We haven’t had much success with EOD trying to conceive our second (we’re on cycle 9), so this cycle we did O-5, O-4, O-2, O-1, O, and O+1. It was exhausting, hopefully it will result in a baby.

    pandabear33:  The first month we conceived (miscarried at 6.5 weeks) I think we did every day from O-2 through O. May have hit O+1 too that cycle. The cycle we conceived this baby we did the same or close to, I think O-3 through O, but were too exhausted to hit O+1. Sex for conception can be exhausting!

    Everyday plus the day after ovulation just to make sure 🙂 if you have the time/ energy, if not EOD should be fine as well!
