Frequency of sex

To have the maximum chance of getting pregnant, sex should be planned to take place around the time of ovulation. That does not mean that you have to have sex daily if you do not wish to! Sex on alternate days just before and around the time of ovulation is probably best, although sperm may live for up to 3-5 days, meaning sex doesn’t have to be timed exactly. Research has shown that it is best to enjoy your relationship and not get too stressed out about timing.
