Ok Ladies... hope you can help. When you are using the ovulation predictor (Clear Blue Easy) - For your highest fertile days you will have a dark red line in the oval window either the same or darker than what is in the circle window. My question is.... when do we have sex? I was told by a number of sources that you should wait until the last day you are highly fertile. This is so confusing... please make some sence out of all of this. Going on 9 mths of ttc....

i would also have sex on both days in case the first batch of sperm didnt do the trick. good luck

Have you heard to wait ...keep the sperm strong? Hold off until the last day?


slowpoke01 - May 15

yes i have heard that but my doctor told me to have sex every other day the week that you are ovulating that way you dont miss it because sometimes with the ovulation tests by the time that the line shows up you have already ovulated and it is too late..i dont know if i am making any sense

i copied this off a website for you it may help explain it better

does ovulation determine when I can get pregnant?
To be fruitful and multiply, you must have sexual intercourse during the period spanning one to two days before ovulation to about 24 hours afterward. The reason: Sperm cells can live for two or three days, but an egg survives no more than 24 hours after ovulation. Unless, of course, fertilization occurs.
