    @ajillity81:  I can’t say how successful it is except that every source seems to say EOD is best, but DH and I are going EOD this entire cycle.   FX I have a BFP to show for it!

    Everything I read and my OB said that every other day would be our best bet. Our first cycle we BDed every other day and AF came. The next month we threw the dancing every other day out the window and just had sex when we wanted…which happened to be every day. I ended up pregnant. With that said I also laid on my back for a little bit after every BD and maybe…perhaps (okay I did) yell at the sperm to do their only job and to swim swim swim.


    …ended up pregnant with twins lol.

    Hoping you get your BFP this cycle! Good luck!

    I’m in my 7th cycle trying, so…I can say with confidence that sometimes these things take time. Fortunately, the majority of people are pregnant by the end of cycle 6.

    That said, the evidence is that every-other-day is usually just as good as every-day – your odds are no greater of conceiving with one than the other.

    Every-other-day can be beneficial if he has abnormal sperm count or related problems. Every day, for such men, could be detrimental.

    We had sex every day/every other day for the two weeks surrounding when I’m pretty sure I O’d and got our BFP that month…

    But don’t forget you only have a 20% chance each month! Most people seem to try for 3-6 months before it happens.

    I think every day can take a lot out of you emotionally and physically when you are trying for a while. After AF is over I would advise to just BD every other day until your period arrives. Of course have sex more often if the mood arrives 😉
