When you get the smiley face, you will be at peak fertility as you are about to ovulate, so yes definitely go for it then!

But it is also worth having sex in days leading up to smiley face as sperm can survive in the bosybfor a few days.

You could google sperm meets egg plan for a schedule, I didn’t do it but I’ve heard good reviews!

In the early days of trying the test can help you to figure out when in your cycle you are at your peak fertility, so definitely need to have sex when you get the static smiley face! However, ideally you need to be having sex in the days leading up to this, so once you understand your cycles a bit better, you need to be having sex at least every other day in your fertile week - and definitely having sex on the peak day and the day after as well!

The month that I got pregnant we had sex every single day in my fertile week, so pretty much 7 consecutive days of doing it - boring as hell and not remotely romantic but it worked!
