    Im ttc at the moment and i was wondering if i need to have loads of sex to greater my chances of conceiving? Me and Oh have sex about 3 times a week or sometimes 2 times a week.

    Was wondering if anyone else is ttc and how many times do you have sex?

    Well, in my experience, the more sex we have, the better chance we'll get pregnant. In both of my previous pregnancies, we had sex every day for about 10 - 12 days after my period stopped and got pregnant the first month trying (although, we're on our second cycle this time). That way, we cover all the bases and if we don't get pregnant I can be okay knowing it was just the luck of the draw and not due to my lack of trying....

    Having said that, some people think that having too much sex depletes the number of sperm, but that hasn't been my experience.

    Good luck....and remember, lots of sex means lots of fun! :)

    We are on the Sperm meets egg plan. Basically every other night from CD 8 and then every night around OV time. Google it and it should give you the plan in full if you wanna know more.xxx

    I am assuming that, yes, the more sex the better, but what I really want to say is that I am jealous of all of you, my OH and I do shift work and a lot of time are like ships passing in the night! We are lucky to get it once a week, let alone every night!!!!!!!!! Am trying to convince my Oh that when he gets home from a night shift he really does want it, but doesn't always work!:rofl:
    Goodluck to you XXXX

    Glad I'm not the only one who wishes I could get sex 2-3 times a week or say 2-3 times a month. That'd be nice. :rofl:

    Have sex as much as you can around your fertile days (just before you OV) some people say every other day so it has time to restock but on average a man releases many millions of sperm when he ejaculates, if he does it every day that may drop to a few less million sperm but it's still pretty high so I don't think you really lower your chances by doing it every day. As much as you can is probably the way to go and if you just don't have the energy then attempt to do it every other day :D
