we're planning a may vacay to ttc for the 4 days before and 1 day after O. Ive read conflicting things but wanted you ladies' advice.

DH wants to dtd all day everyday we're there... Me too. But I was wondering if that works or should we just do it every other day.

I'm also asking cuz I want a boy and heard its best to only dtd w/in 24hrs before O. Which would make our vacay a lil boring.

So can we dtd every day or is that overkill?

EDD 12/15/09, first time mama

From what I've read, you want to allow at least 24 hours for the man to "recover". If there is a known low sperm count issue (like for us), 48 hours should given.

The first (and only) time we conceived was when we did it everyday for a week. We tried for 6 months. My husband had no sperm issues though (we had him tested), so I'm not sure if that is a factor for you.

As long as there are no low sperm issues then you can dtd as often as you want. Have fun and enjoy.
