Do any of you. . .

DTD every other day on a regular basis to make sure you don't miss any baby-making opportunities? My husband and I just started TTC this past month and already I feel like I am going crazy with BFNs and finding it hard to be patient. SO, I looked around at ordering some ovulation tests online. (El cheapo) DH said, we don't need those, let's just DTD every other night all month long and save some money! Just wondering what your thoughts are on this. Thanks!

It is as good as any other system (and dare I say more fun and less stress, LOL).

According to my Gyno, its a great way to catch the egg w/o affecting sperm count by dtd'ing every day. It worked for us 4x. I suggest it esp if you dont have ovulation tests

Yes, we have dtd every other day to not miss the egg, sometimes everyday if it happens. Some people don't recommend every day, but I think every other day is totally fine unless there is a major sperm count issue. Good Luck!!
