ok...maybe this is a stupid question, but when we do start ttc...is there a certain amount of ejaculations he should have, before those guys are all healthy enough for my eggie? i was reading somewhere that those that were pre surgery are sometimes not always great lookingl sperm, etc.

Good question - our VR doc told us to wait 4-6 wks to BD then BD like crazy for awhile to get rid of the stagnant ones...but he didn't say anything about using protection to get rid of the old ones...It was more to get them flowing.

Our Doc said the bad ones would never make it to the egg--no worries!

She is absolutely right. Whole sperm will only fertilize an egg so you dont have to worry about he old ones. I heard that he should ejaculate every other day after the 4 week wait to "keep the pipes flowing".

Not a stupid question at all!


The others are right.

Why do some doctors say to wait 4 weeks to BD, while others tell patients to only wait 2 weeks? What are the risks of BDing early? Honestly, I don't know if I could wait for a whole month to not BD. :)
