How often are you DTD?

Hi all

Came off the pill in August and still not had a period (though I've had brown staining the past two days - so fingers crossed). Doctor has referred me for an ultrasound to test for PCOS and advised that can take up to a year to conceive.

Doctor advised DTD 3 times per week. I wondered is this how frequent you DTD? How does that frequency compare around time of ovulation alongside all other times of the month when not fertile?

We have sex at least once a day when we're together regardless of the time of the month. DP works away a few nts a week though.

Hi popcorn id say we usually average 2-3 times a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less depending how busy with work we've been/how tired we are. We are trying to achieve every other day this cycle though, hoping DTD more often will increase our chances!

We generally DTD every other day between cd6/8 to cd20. We decided that would be our approach ages ago so we don't even discuss it now which makes it feel a bit less orchestrated! Having TTC for over 3 years to conceive our dd I didn't want DTD to become a chore this time around.

Hope everything settles down for you cycle wise and all is ok with the tests x
