Trying to have sex often around ovulation while TTC will greatly increase your chances of getting pregnant. The egg is only viable for about a day, but sperm can live for a while in the vagina. If you have sex every day to every other day, you should have a good chance of catching it. Having sex just before, during and after ovulation, since it can vary from month to month, will increase your chances. Tracking your ovulation may also help.


When trying to conceive it is recommended that you have sex every 24-48 hours for at least 3 days before ovulation. You should be having sex every 24 hours the day before ovulation, the day of ovulation and the day after ovulation. It is important to have sex before and after ovulation to give you the best possible chances at sperm getting to that egg.
