First Response did a survey that found out on average it took 104 sex sessions to get a BFP:

How many times would you estimate that it took for you?

It happened our first month, first week of "officially" trying... we were on our honeymoon... so it was one of the 7 or so times on that trip.

For both kiddos, we BD'ed every day for 5-6 days straight around O time. With DS#1 we got a BFP the first month, and with DS #2 it happened the second month of TTC.

Our first cycle trying, we BDed 5 times the whole cycle, with only one good timing. The second and BFP cycle, we had five times that I recorded before I got my BFP, with one two days before O, and one the day after.

DH worked night shift at the time, so his sex drive was shot.

With DS1 is was way more times than I can count, since it took us a year to finally conceive a sticky bean. With this baby it only took 1 time.

With DS it took two months maybe 8 sessions, with DD it took 2 months around 10 to 12 sessions. With this one, it took 2 session, but really I knew after the first one, the second one just happened. Then again this one I wasn't TTCing yet, technically I wasn't with DS either, but with him we sort of where just not admitting it.

Thank you for the sig Mary

I only logged well-timed BD sessions. It took us two cycles to get a BFP, and we had 5 well-timed BD sessions.

Oh man lol. Over 4 days we DTD 21 times with him "finishing" 14 times, and we only used condoms the last 2 days, when unfortunately I ovulated the FIRST 2 days, 5 days sooner then I normally ovulate. And the last day we only DTD once, so maybe 5-7 times out of those 21 were protected. So, with a well timed O it's really no wonder we got pregnant.

For 26 Months of TTCing, I would estimate about 5 BD sessions during each month, with maybe three of those times being well timed.

So 130 sessions overall, and 78 well-timed.

Month 1- 4 days
Month 2- 4 days
Month 3- 3 days
Month 4- 3 days

I got my numbers from my fertility friend acct. I was getting frustrated and my OB actually said to BD every other day instead of every day which is what we did the last month and plus I added pre seed as I was having issues with CM since coming off the pill and I think both of those helped. I know I will be using it again when we TTC #2.


Thanks for the wonderful siggie April
