How much sex did you have the month you conceived?

Just that really! Did you go at it like the clappers or just do it a couple of times?

I have wondered this too...

Tried for 12 months. Then every single day for the month did the trick.

When I conceived DS1 we did it three times over the space of 8 days.

I was pregnant 9 months ago (but miscarried) and we'd DTD twice in the space of four days.

I'm currently pregnant now and only had sex the day I got my positive OPK.

Long time ago but daily sex was the norm. I conceived after I'd been away two nights. But it was immediate, as soon as we tried, it worked.
I'm far from knowledgeable on this topic but isn't there something about daily sex altering your body chemistry to make conception more likely? Perhaps that was just a story they told us...

Was temping... had sex once 2 days before ovulation and once 2 days after. Was sure we had missed it totally.

I did put my legs up the wall though...

Other than that, outside of thosr two times, can't remember be was about once a week, DHs job didn't have time for more.. :/

With Dd we had a lot the weekend she would have been conceived. With ds we did it twice!

Every other day. Gives the sperm chance to regroup a bit, apparently.

toffeeboffin Wed 04-Jan-17 23:22:58

Couple of times, maybe three.

that was actually for the whole year too

Didn't temp but kept track on Ovia and CM.

First time, once and I don't even know when I ovulated that month to know how close I was. Second time, four out of my five fertile days. Third time, once the day before I ovulated.

I have a ridiculously regular cycle and I can tell when I'm ovulating, so we concentrated our efforts at that time of the month.

DC1 - went at it every day about the time of ovulation, but we'd been trying for months. We were astonished to find it had finally worked
DC2 - just the once on the day of ovulation - conceived first month of trying
DC3 - ahem, I know exactly - Christmas Eve & Boxing Day as I was due to ovulate on Christmas Day. Baby arrived mid-September. I seriously have no clue how or why I can remember that.

MindfulBear Wed 04-Jan-17 23:28:43

Once. Both times. We were living in different countries so didn't see each other very often... v effective! Much more effective than when we were living in the same home!!!!!

daquee101 Wed 04-Jan-17 23:32:18

Three times a day for almost 2 months I think. Was taking the seven seas conception pills. Highly recommend.

MrsGsnow18 Wed 04-Jan-17 23:34:39

4 times in the week we actually conceived, but actually only once around ovulation (once on the day of positive OPK)

mmmuffins Wed 04-Jan-17 23:44:17

Just once.

donttrytostopmesmee Wed 04-Jan-17 23:46:30

Interesting, interesting!

haveacupoftea Thu 05-Jan-17 00:02:41

Once at the start of FW and once at the end if memory serves me right. Going by my dates it was the first attempt that did the trick.

NashvilleQueen Thu 05-Jan-17 00:07:59

Two children. Two shags without contraception when we usually used condoms. In a sense therefore both accidental and unplanned but very welcome and I realise how very lucky I was.

DD was a happy surprise many moons ago.
This one we've been trying for two years with fertility treatment. The month I got pregnant we dtd 3 times. I have a big window because sometimes I ovulate on day 14 other it's day 17.

MrsG280516 Thu 05-Jan-17 11:35:50

Three times within 4 days of ovulation then not for another 3 days after that. Conceived on cycle 2. Research shows that having sex 3 to 1 days before ovulation is most likely to get the sperm to the egg at the right time rather than day of ovulation or days after. Everyone is different though.

NickyEds Thu 05-Jan-17 11:57:09

With ds ( first baby ) we dtd about 3 / 4 times a week which was just normal for us at the time. It took us 5 months to conceive With dd, ds was 9 / 10 months old and waking every 90 minutes so it was practically an immaculate conception! My period only returned after stopping bf when ds was 6-7 months so not sure how long it took us to conceive but it was probably 2-3 cycles.

This time only once shock

Dc1 and 2 every other day then twice daily the day of and day before ovulation. Mental

Just once, 3 days before ovulation. First month of trying too, I was so surprised to get a positive test!
