    From CD 11 to CD 24 (every second night), but I normally have a 35 day cycle. But I swear it works, it worked for us 3 times!

    My OB recommended every 2nd day from day 12. But we used OPK's and did it morning & night the day I got the positive. (Plus DH was about to go overseas so kinda wanted a good supply swimming around in there! LOL). This is probably TMI but we also did it so that DH 'went' first, and then he made me 'go'. Apparently this dips the cervix into all the spermies and sucks em up closer to the egg. hehe. Well... something worked!! I guess we'll never know if it was coz of that, or just good timing

    One month when we were trying we dtd every single day after AF and NOTHING! LOL I was shocked. The next month after AF (CD 7) it was basically every 2nd day (although a couple of times we missed and dtd on the 3rd day) until about CD 20 (I normally ovulated between day 15 and 18) and voila I'm pregnant!

    hmm hard to remember!

    We pretty much did it every day, up untill about day 25 of my cycle (text book 28d cycle here!) I found out before i was late- yes very early and was a bit freaked to have sex after that... My darling partner and I made a deal to wait a while... lasted all of three days.

    I think there were a few days early on in the cycle that we didnt do it, as i was recovering from a very painful infection that id been stuffering from for the previous 3 months!! Thank good we saw a new dr and things were cleared up and we were pg the very next cycle.

    I say if your trying, just do it as much as you can... and if your not trying... well you can always pretend/practice! \/

    Take care

    5 days before ov, then on the day itself... wonder which one worked? You can see why we were surprised to get a BFP first month with such a lame effort!!!

    I'm not sure which exact days ... we had only been trying for 2 months so I wasn't up to all the nitty gritty detail yet ... but pretty much every day or 2nd day from days 10 - 20 I think.

    Chrissy, have you checked out the successful conception charts here? Lots of the charts include the times people BD'd. I think the one that did the trick for us was the day before I O'd.

    I referred to those successful charts heaps when I first began TTC.
    When we conceived we ended up BDing two days before O and on the night of O. Thats it...

    Ok here's a Q. for those of you that BD'd before O did you end up with a girl? And for those of you that BD'd on the day did you end up with a boy?

    I'm hoping we got a boy

    Dee73 - you can probably tell which of yours worked by whether it's a boy or girl!

    Hello - We used the fortel OPK and we BD the day before O and the day of O for that cycle, and it was the cycle that gave us our BFP!! I like the Fortel OPK and would definately recommend them...
