I am confused because you said "You want to make sure that you aren't having it more than once a day, might even better to do it every other day so that the sperm have time to regenerate."

I read that its a myth.  I am in my first month of TTC and we are doing it every day to increase our chances plus its more fun haha

How often do you have sex when you are ovulating?  You want to make sure that you aren't having it more than once a day, might even better to do it every other day so that the sperm have time to regenerate.  Also make sure that you aren't using any lubricants. the only sperm friendly one that I've heard of is Preseed.  Most of the others will actually inhibit the sperm.  If you aren't seeing a lot of cervical mucus when you are ovulating, than you might want to look at using it.  The sperm need the CM that looks like egg whites in order to travel up to meet the egg.

I have heard stress can cause issues so try to limit the amount of daily stress as well as pressure related to getting pregnant. Also, get him into boxers and not briefs so his boys are not overheated. Good luck!
