I was told it’s the quantity not the quality of sex!

No, you can’t have too much. But you do need to do it at the right time of the month. You’ll want to concentrate your efforts then but going at it any other time of the month won’t be detrimental to the process in any way.

Bang as many times as possible during ovulation window. This is the way.

Thanks y’all!

Mostly just go for quantity during peak ovulation. If you only have once chance, try to get at least 3 days of “charging,” but not more than 5.

My husband and I tracked ovulation and had sex daily during my fertility period ( 5 days ). I got pregnant first cycle.

Every three days. Take zinc supplements too.

Make sure you tease him a lot and delay ejaculation. This will cause him to explode harder — it really helps
