Hi!! Sounds like you have some fun there!LOL! You can hurt your chances by bding too much- there IS such a thing!! It takes 24-36 hours for DH's sperm to replenish. You can go for fun a second time, no problem, but if you bd several times a day without break the sperm supply is not given a chance to get it's numbers back up so he will still "come" but it will be mostly just semen with little sperm.

HTH! GL to you!~Tara

men store up sperm waiting so each ejaculation should have the same amount of sperm in it but the amount of ejaculate fluid does get lower with each ejaculation. That shouldn't change anything with chances. In fact so long as you aren't overdoing it more than a couple of times and not doing that daily it should raise your chances. Just keep in mind that way too much of a good thing can be too much

Tara, the program I just watched on Discovery said exactly the opposite. It said men keep an entire week or more supply in the testicles... it's the seminal fluid that becomes low and needs time to recover not the sperm.

Just thought I would pass that on... I will try and find info online later to clarify one position or another.

Really??? Wow...that goes against everything I have ever read/heard! It'd be great if you could find more info on that for us.

((((HUGS)))) Sorry if I was passing misinformation above! Eeeek!

what I remember from the program is if you have sex too much you start getting immature sperm who need more time so too much IS a bad thing. Also the oppositite was true. If a man doesn't clean the pipes enough (not sure what not enough is) then you end up with sick and damaged sperm.

I still haven't had time to do research... I promise I will. I would like to see the answer on paper .. I could be the one who is wrong. I am just trying to regurgitate a program I watched like a month ago.

Twice in a row!! lucky you! as far as it hurting... my DH was told that he has to release every 4 days minnimum for the sperm to stay good and wait two days between to build up. But we were also told that you have a better chance of conceiving if the woman has an orgasm after the man! It causes the cervix to flex allowing the sperm a better chance to enter!!

Best of luck to us all!

Ok, the best I have come up with online so far.

Everything I read said that men who have sperm fertility problems should be every other day to give his body time to recover since his sperm cells are low normally. However, there are no restrictions on men who have no fertility problems (obviously use common sense. Having sex 2x's a day every day will probaby not be good) however, everyday and the occasional 2x's a day should be just fine :)

Here's some reading material:

one more thing about the orgasm after the man. I SAW this on the same tv program. When a woman has an orgasm the cervix litterly dips down into the seminal fluid. Obviously this will raise the chances.
