Best to do twice-daily OPKs, such as 11am and 6pm, as you may have a short LH surge. Don't use first morning urine.
Obviously the "fresher" the sperm the better. Refrigerated sperm has a shorter life-span, and therefore would not suit the premise of the SMEP. I am sure you know all this anyway.
Does that help? J x.
But as far as freshness, he'll be making his donation in our spare room, passing it through and leaving, so we should be able to inseminate within 10 minutes of it being produced!
Have stocked up on OPKs so I can do two a day
Brisbane area here!
Quick message from me before I dash out... sorry have not had a chance to catch up but will do a little later.
12DPO here and temp stayed up today... no brown CM which is a good sign for me but do have a dull AF type ache.
I am trying not to be too hopeful but this is very different to my last 2 cycles, if I am not pg my body is playing a very very ugly trick on me! So tempted to test but gonna hold out till Sunday.

Well def BFN fore again. Im feeling better again. A few days ago with my first BFN I was really Devo but I feel like its just not my time just yet. I guess the universe has its plans for me and I'm sure bub #2 will be here before I know it! Need to forget ttc and enjoy life a big more. I feel like this year has gone so fast because I've been so ttc focused and letting precious time pass me by!
Anyways next month as long as there are no viruses or colds etc then we will try DTD every 2nd day all month. Stuff opks etc, just going to have fun
Just need AF to arrive so we can get that over and done with and we can get on with it
Congrats to BFPs and goodluck with those testing!!
