I got my bfp last week and we only dtd once in fw, the day before o (I didn't feel very well) so I'd say timing is everything.. X

I'm first time trying, 5th cycle and was told to have sex every other day to give the sperm a chance to build up. Was told every day could lower sperm count? However still havent fell pregnant so god knows! Just have fun !

I think it is down to pot luck, like you I use the CB sticks and last month we dtd on all the the flashy days and on the static one, thought we would be successful this time but have come on this morning so have to try again next month ☹️ x

Every other day through the month. Possible pre children, impossible when you have one or more already! My second was concieved the month we did it twice, as opposed the previous 11 months when we'd managed it once.
Check the position of your cervix, feeling warmer than normal, watch for egg white mucus and check in with your libido if you want clues for ovultion.

I DTD once in my fertile window and fell pregnant after trying for nearly 18 months.
I think it’s really just down to luck.

Can someone advise on how many times having sex is enough, around ovulation?

I am feeling like I don’t know if I haven’t done it enough or too much of just not on the correct days :/

I use CB digital ovulation sticks and from what I can tell, it works - it works as it should. And I can ‘feel’ pains or niggles when in the ovulation period so I assume something is happening! Also use the OneStep strips alongside and they correspond with the CB sticks. I don’t track CM closely but from what I feel/see that looks to be normal too.

CD8 - nothing on CB
CD9 - nothing on CB
CD10 - flashing smiley - DTD
CD11 - flashing smiley - DTD
CD12 - flashing smiley
CD13 - flashing smiley - DTD
CD14 - flashing smiley
CD15 - flashing smiley
CD16 - solid smiley - DTD
CD17 - you don’t test after solid smiley but OneStep has dark lines - DTD
CD18 - again, didn’t test - DTD

I can’t help but feel CD14 and CD15 we should have had sex... :/

What do you think?
