Can u run out of sperm??

Hi ladies....being a bit thick here....basically had an 11 day period last month so have no idea when i am ovulating BUT decided just to do lots of bonking anyway around the 13- 16 days of my cycle to hope for the best....didn't get any EWCM but was on holiday so thought we'd make the most of the lie ins.
Anyway had sex mornings and evenings but then i wondered whether my hubby could actually run out of sperm?

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks peeps! xoxo

I'm no sperm expert but I don't think they can run out, more the quality and quantity might not be as good but that depends on each individual man and his sperm count I would assume.

I've read/heard that it would be best to DTD every other day. Doing it twice a day isn't giving the sperm much time to mature completely. Men replenish nice healthy "swimmers" every 24-48 hours. Sperm can live inside the woman for up to 72 hours (given a good hospitable environment in there).
So if you're DTD twice a day (every 6 or so hours) the sperm may not be strong enough to Make their journey to reach the egg or he may not ejacualte as much sperm as he would if waited another day. I hope this helps! Good luck!!

You can run out of good quality sperm, yes. A man can always ejaculate unless he has a penile disorder.
