    Yeah - it's the enzymes in your saliva that break down the sperm. So stay away from oral sex whilst ttc. Not so much of an issue outside of your fertile time though.

    Just realised yesterday I think we are missing o each month. I do opk's starting the week I think I will o and we dtd every or every second night in the lead up. But then once I get the positive we don't do it again for about a week after. I think we are completely missing it.

    You could be right. OPKs test for the luteal surge which precedes ovulation. You will generally ovulate 12 to 36 hours after your final positive OPK. That's my understanding anyway. The two days prior to ovulation are your most fertile days, and the OPKs are actually your sign to get busy.

    It's all a bit complicated! Hopefully you'll have better luck this month

    Try using Maybe baby or preseed, we were having trouble (PCOS) and used this the cycle I got a positive! Goodluck!
    @tazz475 for you this cycle
    We are just dtd every second day from when AF finishes until the next one starts or i get a bfp. I figure that way, if I miscalculate ovulation or something, I'll still be covered. Plus, then DH doesn't feel like I am only programming him in around ovulation haha

    oops! DH and I have a theory that sometimes I don't O when I think I do, or perhaps O twice in a month sometimes, as a couple times when we have fallen pregnant (only one has resulted in our DD) there has been no sex in what we thought was my fertile time - and we were charting etc. I think I must let another one out close to my period sometimes, as the last bfp I had was less than 2 weeks after an extremely heavy period. So we are just trying the 'regular dtd all the time' thing to try and catch that egg. only every second day though, or we'd probably get a bit sore lol

    Guys who aren't TTC probably think our dh/dps are the luckiest guys in the world with our sex lives!
