DTD: Every Day OR Every Other?

 

 

Since I'm just starting out on the TTC journey, I haven't used any fancy ovulation  detecting technology (yet): just some old fashioned pen and paper calendars where I've been keeping track of my periods, cycle lengths, and anticipated ovulation days. So, when the ovulation window does come, do you DTD every day or every other day? I've heard pros and cons to both...
 
We did a little blend of both... every other at the beginning and end and every day in the middle...

It's out first cycle TTC and I'm in 2WW now. We also didn't use an OPK this month. We were still getting used to the reality of it all and I figureg lety's just see what happens. If there's no BFP this month then I'll OPK next.

We had planned on DTD every day but we didn't end up that way. Since we didn't OPK or temp we DTD the day before my expected O date.  I was expected to O on July 21, so we DTD on : 20, 21, 23, 24 and 26.

 Sounds like we are on a very similar track! I am planning to try an OPK next month too if we get a BFN.

We try to BD at least every other day on the days I don't work and on the day I get a positive OPK. We have tried to both ways though (at least during O week). After the first 3 or 4 unsuccessful cycles we started taking a week or so off before/during AF.

I've heard it's safe to BD every day unless you know your DH has a low count. We've had 2 TTC cycles and both of them we BD every single day, starting with the first day I have EWCM. We then continue every day including 1DPO, and then we go back to DTD on a regular basis. (I differentiate BD from DTD)
