    Well...atm it's whatever we can get. Usually once or twice at o. Before we had ds we were dtd up to 10 times a cycle, usually every other day or so.

    I dunno how this even worked for us but when we were actively trying it was every day if not every second day. The cycles we actually conceived our take home bub it was once, 5/6/7 (can't remember exact day sorry) days before o and I'd given up. We currently have another on board which is sticking so far (32 weeks) and this one was also a one timer. Miracles don't have to make sense I guess but I still get annoyed at all the failed cycles where we put in and got nothing. Anyway, good luck OP

    Every other day from when AF finished to getting my BFP. Worked both times. I have longer cycles though, did turn into a bit of a chore occasionally ...

    the cycle we conceived we actually only did it twice. either on o and o+1 or o and o-1

    we weren't really trying and expected nothing to come of it. always the way isn't it!

    prior to that we'd been doing it 6-8 times in a cycle around o week and nothing was happening.

    not sure if it was a timing issue or just luck. not like we did anything differently the cycle we conceived so who knows.

    dtd definitely becomes a chore month after month when you're not getting a result. take a month or two off and just forget about it. I think the pressure was wrecking it for me/us and it was a cycle of ttc, then waiting and getting a bfn then getting upset about it. a little break was great for my headspace.

    Every day during my fertile window. Sometimes twice a day. It worked for us first try.

    With DD we'd DTD every second day in the fertile window.
    The last time I fell pregnant (but miscarried at 10 weeks) was just on the day of ovulation.
