I think the man needs like 24 hours to recharge and I believe EOD works great at long as you make sure to BD the day of O!!!

Yeah, my understanding is that it's kind of a wash, because EOD can help with sperm count, BD'ing daily could produce a lower count...but you're doing it every day so it all evens out. We personally prefer EOD and are going to stick with that this month.

CD20 is way too early to tell for sure! Every kit I've seen says they only guarantee a 99% accuracy rate from the day of your missed period.

I'm getting ready to make an appointment at Mass General Fertility Center, unless of course by some miracle this is my month. That would be a big next step, because it's a teaching and research hospital, and one of the best in the US, so they're going to be really intense. Guess it's time!

Yeah, my doc said don't do ed until you know you are o'ing because his swimmers won't be strong. EOD until definite O and then BD that day, night, and next morning to cover you

Also an important thing that my doc pointed to me is that a man that didn't ejaculated for 7days or more should do it before you start BD bcs his semen is not viable for a pregnancy!!!And also no hot anything on the men private parts,showers,bath,laptop,it kills the swimmers!!ED works for those who have no problems!DH has a high count but his morphology is 38% the doc said is good but not perfect,i was about to try EOD this cycle but O sneak up on me it seems!

Had my trigger shot on Wednesday morning and if I ovulated 24 to 36 hours after, I must've ovulated yesterday. Problem is... DH and I did not BD last night!!! :( We did it on Sunday night, Tuesday night and Wednesday night. Hope we are not out this month just yet. :/

There's a good reason why we did not BD last night.

All other boards said having sex just before O is very good because sperm lives up to 3 days. In fact, many got BFP this way. Hoping this is true for me!!! Oh well, will do one more today and just let it go.

You can have sex 2days before O and the day of O,so that way you have semen waiting for the egg and when the egg is released you get some more!!But yeah get some tonight!The Great Sperm Race is an awesome documentary that uses people as swimmers check it out ladies,a lot of info on there!!!

Ha, I guess it depends on which board because many others said BD day before O is best. :) I guess nobody really knows for sure -- I did it 4 days, 2 days and 1 day before O and will do it 1 day after O. Just hope that will be enough.

Rce hang in there and good luck!! There are so many ppl who get their BFP so many different ways that there's no guarantee their way is the right way all you can do is try and hope it works, if it doesn't happen this month try something new next month as far as timing but hopefully you won't need to.

Of course everyone has a different opinion,for me personally I don't believe just before O is enough,from millions of sperms only one makes it so is scary when I think about it!But I think you are fine,and some people say it worked for them well I'm sure it will work for you to and if it does work for you,hell IM doing it next cycle

It's not me, he wants it every day and I feel bad to say no. If he had it his way he would do it twice in one day!. I keep telling him I think we need to slow down and just do EOD but then when we go to bed it doesn't hapoen that way. Ughhh. Thank God we had a break yesterday, hopefully he built up some swimmers. But not liking my chances. Idk Im at a loss as to what's good and what isn't bc so many different advice when u read things.
