    Default Do you do it everyday or every other day?

    I did some research on the differences between CM. Looked at some pictures and read some descriptions. I think that the day I felt watery on CD9 was sperm and I believe I was actually dry/damp. CD10 I was certainly Dry/Damp. Today is CD11 and I actually felt wet in the outside of the vagina. When I checked for CM I got some wet stuff that couldn't be stretched. Sorry for TMI.

    What I'm thinking is that I've actually been "dry" the last two days because I only felt damp....no actual signs of CM. Today I certainly have CM. So I changed my chart from Watery on CD9 & 10 to Dry and changed it to Watery for today.

    Here's my question tho.
    DH and I have been DTD everyday since CD7. Last night it took some sexy lingerie to get him interested. He has a production job that leaves him drained and tired when he gets home and I can just tell that he's tired of DTD every single night. Is it ok to skip a day on a fertile CM day?

    I got a neg OPK yesterday too. I bought a BBT thermometer last night. This morning my first recorded temp is 97.47 ...I don't think I'm gonna O today. I'm just concerned that I'm draining DH lol and if he needs a break from DTD every day...that perhaps now would be the best time.

    Do you gals do it every day or every other day?

    I have heard every other day is better for the sperm. Here it's whatever works, sometimes around O it's everyday, other times every other day, depends on how tired I am as hubby doesn't get home from work until around 10pm which is when I am going to bed and out 2 year old doesn't sleep through and wakes around 11pm screaming

    So I wait until I get a positive OPK, then DTD 3 days/nights straight. For me, every other day doesn't work. I also ensure that there is no old sperm (try to DTD regularly but not too often - thi is like an art rather than a science!). I use the OPK in combo with BBT so that I know what's coming and what's passed. I have had trouble distinguishing between cm and sperm so I don't even bother. HTH!

    We try to DTD every other night. I read some place that DTD multiple times a day around O isn't good sperm wise because then his body is rushing to produce if that makes sense. We may DTD every day for 2-3 days around O because my sex drive increases around O (that's a sign I personally watch for) but we try not to do multiple times a day and at least every other day.

    We also DTD every other day/night. I've read that it's good to have the between as a break for your body (old sperm) and good for DH to relax.

    We're back to our regular schedule. Every other day or every couple days. Now we're just waiting...I can't wait to test.
