Well, it is not as complicated as some of tracking devices would have you believe. If that were the case there would be a lot less people on the planet. LOL. It is good to have an idea of what time of the month you are MOST likely to get pregnant. Often you will notice some body changes, like mucus and sex drive changes. If I were you I would just go at as you normally would for awhile. If that doesn’t work, then break out the charts and start counting your cycle out to see if you and the Darling Husband aren’t missing the best time to TTC. Goodluck.

My ob/gyn told me that if you have standarad 28 day (or there about) cycle then you can go with the estimate that the 10th day after your LMP you should start having intercourse every other day for 10 days and that should get you there.  Granted it didn’t get us there and we started charting but overall, the rule of thumb was correct, we just took awhile.  If you cycle is quite a bit shorter or longer than that, then the math changes.

Just curious – Why every other day?  Is there harm in every day?

@egb:i think that only applies to a guy with lower sperm count. 

@egb:a lot of people do just TTC casually at first and then start using tools if after a few months it doesn’t happen on its own – others chart from the beginning.  Totally personal decision.  We had friends who talked about how “baby making” sex was not fun – and they took 10 months to conceive.  We didn’t really want sex to become a chore, so we found a balance where I knew about when I ovulated using OPK but we didn’t worry too much about it or ever force it….
