    Default When do you BD?

    Ok, this is the first cycle of REALLY trying for me so I'm not sure when we should start. I'm on CD 7 (I have 25 day cycles, like religously, even after my IUD was removed the next cycle was 25 days) and F.Friend says I will O in 5 days so do we BD now or wait until positive OPKs? (I've been doing OPKs since CD 5 and all are very negative) I really want to get preggo this cycle or next!

    If you followed a plan like the "Sperm meets egg plan" which has a pretty good success rate, you would BD every other day from now until you get a positive opk, then BD three days in a row, take a day off and BD one more time. Honestly... it's a bit exhausting. lol

    Ditto. We're just NTNP so we really only DTD when we feel like it/have enough energy lol. We've never been terribly active BD'ers, we've just been incredibly lucky in the past.

    every other day is a good option as well... then you're sure to hit either day before or the day OF O...

    then again, plenty of women get pg when the only BD once in their so called 'fertile window'!

    LOL we were really lucky with DD and DS and weren't even trying so I have this crazy fear that it isn't going to happen when we want it to this time!

    After 8 months of well timed BD every other day or so I finally got tired of waiting for luck.

    We DTD for 5 days in a row until my OPKs went back to negative and my temp showed I Od. Bingo, we caught the egg. It was work, and I am 36, but it was time!
