Not sure, but no harm in doing it anyway.

Here's something I posted on another website this morning: The RCOG has some info on this:
Quote:
It has been observed that most pregnancies can be attributed to sexual intercourse during a sixday period ending on the day of ovulation,31,32 with the highest estimated conception rates aassociated with intercourse two days before ovulation.33 [Evidence level 3]

Six cohort studies that evaluated the use of basal body temperature or urinary luteinising hormone (LH) kits to time intercourse did not report improvement in the chance of natural conception.34–39 [Evidence level 2b] Timed intercourse has been found to be an emotionally stressful intervention in the initial evaluation of infertility.40 [Evidence level 3] However, for the minority of couples who find it difficult to have frequent sexual intercourse, the prediction of ovulation using LH kits can be useful.
