How often to make love ????
My wife & i have been trying to conceive for 8 months now & she is starting to get anxious..
I saw some information one time that making love daily gives the best chance of conception but my wife heard that we shoud wait 2 days 2 make my sperm level higher or stronger.
Which would be the logical or proven answer?

Dear Paquito

The ideal is to time intercourse according to ovulation testing (urinary testing kits which are cheap and widely available). Spacing intercourse every second or third day is a better option as this would result in sperm of better quality and numbers as opposed to daily ejaculations.
