When I was ttc we had sex every day. Conceived the first month for both DC1 and DC2.

No it won't affect your ability to conceive. However if the only reason you are shagging every day is to get pregnant, there's not much point as you are only fertile for 2 or 3 days of the month, so having sex every single day for conceivings' sake is a bit overkill šŸ˜Š

If you're normally fertile then it shouldn't make a blind bit of difference to conception chances. You won't be making maximum number of sperm having sex that often but tbh, if you're having sex with a fertile man, he'll be making plenty anyway.

So yes it affects number of sperm but it shouldn't be a problem necessarily.

thank yous so much :) i was just asking bc we have sex everyday anyways not just ttc and i was thinking maybe that's why i'm not pregnant yet. as i've heard it's best to wait a few days for men to built up better sperm? i was thinking we would need to take a break on sex but that would be very hard for us lolll xx

I've heard people trying to sway for a certain gender will refrain from sex for a few days or whatever, but apart from that it wont make a difference x
