    How long into cycle to BD
    livelaughmoe posted:
    How long do you into your cycle to people have sexual intercourse? What cycle day do you stop?
    Lopersgrl responded:
    There is no stop/start point and to be honest I wouldnt even try to do it that way.. it takes the spontaneity and romance out of sex.

    My advice would be to try to have sex ever other day throughout your whole cycle. Especially during the week of ovulation. However, if you decide to want to have sex two night in a row, dont even hesitate. TTC already takes a toll on everyone so to have a little romance and excitement is a great way to relieve some of the stress of TTC. Plus I am sure DH wouldn't mind it either

    I know i rambled on with a little more than what you asked so to answer your question.....

    I would try to have sex every other day through out your whole cycle and especially during the ovulation week.

    I agree with Lopersgrl to try and make it spontaneous and relaxed. My doctor's instructions for clomid say specifically days 11, 13, 15, and 17. I tried to explain to him that's too scheduled, but I guess his job is to help us get pregnant.
    Stenya replied to deliela999's response:
    My first round of Clomid was SOOO stressful! Both my husband and I didnt want to touch eachother (makes having a baby VERY difficult!). For this last month we relaxed, and realized that a schedule was NOT a great way to go about it. This cycle was more fun and stress free. So my advice is to BD when you can, quite frequent and try to forget what cycle day your on!
