Hi, Dr. Stan here to help. Having sex during ovulation increases the chance of pregnancy. Typical ovulation last 5-6 days. Intercourse daily during ovulation helps. The only problem could be with the male. That frequency may diminish his sperm count so that conception does not occur. Try daily or every other day, 2 or 3 times should be effective to produce active sperm so the chances of conception are increased. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars for this is how I am credited for my response. Be well, relax and I hope you conceive quickly.

Additional thought, sperm can live for about 5 days in the womb, so having intercourse 1-4 days before you ovulate also increases the chance of pregnancy.

Also to help you, an unfertilized egg lives 12-24 hours.
