    ~Lurking~ from TTCAL w/ a question

    Hello ladies,

    I have a question...I feel like I should know this since I TTC for over three years for my fist child...But alas, she is 4 now, and I have forgotten more about TTC than most people know in a lifetime. (I'm sure you can relate.)

    I'm just wondering...For a healthy late 20's couple with no male factor infertility issues, do you advocate BD every day or every other day during the fertile period?

    I am charting and depending on the day you ask me, may or may not be using OPK's. (I used them once...Liked to see the lines, but it just made me obsessively pee more...)

    Thanks in advance, I appreciate the help. ~*~*Babydust*~*~

    Best to try every other day. Your dh needs to build up his sperm count. My doc says to start every other day starting at cd10 to cd20. I know what you mean about the OPK's. Mine have said I am ovulating the last days...not sure if that's acurate but if we don't try one of those nights it makes me think I've missed my chance this month....

    Good luck to you!! )
