Every other day is great if you don’t know your cycle yet. Try ovulation tests if you want to narrow the window down

pateacher:  Lol, I think she’s talking about for best chances of conception.

I agree the OPKs are a great way to narrow the window down. If you want, you can just have sex every other day and cover the whole month! 🙂

We do every other day starting around day 10 until I get a positive OPK and then every day until after I ovulate (which I check use BBT charting).

weightwatchers152:  Every other day is a good place to start for people who don’t know their cycle yet. If you decide to use OPK’s and chart, it will help you narrow to your fertile window. 

Google the Sperm Meets Egg Plan. That’s what we used the month we concieved.

Good Luck!

Since my cycle was so erratic after coming off BCP, we ended up doing it EOD for 3 weeks until I confirmed ovulation through charting my temps. I wanted NOTHING to do with Darling Husband after that. HAHA. Irregular cycles suck, I feel for ya!

weightwatchers152:  Do you chart? I’m TTA, but I found charting to be immensely valuable in learning about my cycle. Then you can plan your sexy time around the point when you will be ovulating. 

Best of luck in your TTC journey 🙂
