Finally!!

Got a positive OPK, I tested yesterday morning and got a smiley tested later at night and got another smiley, we have already been doing the BD for 3 straight days, should we continue, or is it okay to skip a day??

Well Im not an expert, but I would say continue for at least 2-3days after the positive opk, to cover all bases. I hear the positive sign mean you will probably O within 12-48hrs and the egg is viable for 12 to 24hr after its release, so you do the math.

I think it is okay to skip a day since sperm can live for a number of days (upwards of 6, I've heard).  I'm guessing you don't temp?  I've heard the most 3 critical days to BD consecutively are the day before O, day of O and day after O.  I'm not using OPK's though, so I don't have a strategy for those.

Congrats! I know it's probably fine to take a break since sperm can live a while, but I would probably do it for the next day or two - that's what we did, just to make sure we didn't miss any of the possible days in our window. Crossing my fingers for you! :)

I'm having so much trouble trying to figure out when to "do it" I do BBT but I'm so irregular it's hard to keep doing it for 5 straight days or so. I'm so bummed we've been trying and haven't had any luck so far. Good Luck to you.

Thanks ladies- we actually have been doing the BD since July 2nd and stopped on July 7th, my most fertile days were July 4-5th so hopefully we nailed it!!


 


PSA- I would really recommend investing on the clearblue OPK (smiley face) I bought the advanced ones that were sort of expensive, but I really like that it gives you your most fertile day, and then peak which tells you you are about to ovulate... or you can just go with the regular clear blue digi test... really helps.
