Hi Martha. Sperm are supposed to live for 1 to 3 days IF our mucus is fertile and your guy has decent sperm. If you're young and able and have the time, every day is a good bet according to my doc, and every other day is your next best bet. If you're older, tired, and don't have the time (dh and I) you can use bbt, opk's, cm & cp to narrow in on when you are most likely to O and bd daily in that window like I try to do. You want to at least bd every other day when you're most fertile so you catch at least one good mucus day before O.

ok fair enough:) How about every second day, like some ladies do, is that enough to get pregnant?

sperm can live up to 5 days..sometimes a little longer. I did every other day when I got prego with my last baby. Good luck.

i heard that if dh has a low sperm count than it's better to do the every other day bd so that it can build up. but in my case we have no idea if he has low sperm count.. there's no reason to think that he does, but we're trying for our first baby, and so we're going to try it every other day....
