Getting Busy More May Improve Chance of Conception

Wanna-be-parents who have limited sex on schedule to improve their chances of conception might want to toss their thermometers and hop into bed! New research shows that couples engaging in daily sex prior to ovulation may have increased chances of seeing two pink lines on the pregnancy stick. One report said:

Reported Tuesday at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) meeting in Amsterdam, the study involved 118 men suffering from "higher-than-normal" genetic damage to the sperm. The study led by Australia's David Greening of IVF Sydney in Wollongong found that after a week of daily sex, genetically damaged sperm dropped by an average of 26% among the men.

The sperm's shortened exposure to oxygen could have also factored into the results.

our RE always told us to have sex every other day before, during and after ovulation just to make sure. it's been over 2 years with no luck so we're trying this method this month!
