How often should I be having sex while trying to conceive?
The answer is often! This is especially true during the most fertile time of your cycle. First, become familiar with when you ovulate so that you can maximize your chances of getting pregnant. Some couples who have been trying to conceive for several months may begin to feel like it is a chore. If you know that one time of the month is more likely to produce results, this may help to increase cuddle time at other times of the month.
Sex every couple of days (at the minimum) during ovulation should produce the desired results. Be aware that sperm can live for 48 to 72 hours (two to three days) if the conditions of your cervical mucus are right.
When you have decided to get pregnant, make sure you have had a checkup with your gynecologist and get started on prenatal vitamins.
