If you are using over the counter ovulation predictor tests, you will get a clear answer as to when you are ovulating. Since the LH surge can happen very quickly, it is important to test at least twice daily during the week that you expect ovulation, so you don’t miss that important time. If you anticipate the date that your ovulation will occur, you can actually go ahead and have sex around 12 to 24 hours before your expected ovulation date. This is a good idea since the sperm can live longer than the egg. This way, the sperm will be ready and waiting for the egg when it is released.
Once you get a positive ovulation predictor test result, or otherwise think that you are ovulating, you can go ahead and have sex. If you want to have sex once a day for several days, that is fine,and if you want to go ahead and have sex more than once per day, that is okay too. Some doctors recommend that you not have sex more than once a day during ovulation, since this can diminish the quality of sperm. However, many doctors suggest that this is not true, and having sex during ovulation is just fine no matter how many times you choose to do it. As long as you are doing the ‘baby dance” during your ovulation time, that is what is the most important.
Keep in mind that you are never able to pinpoint exactly when ovulation is going to occur, you can make a good guess, but that is all. If you are using an OPK, you will most likely ovulate within 36 hours of getting a positive result on your OPK test. If you are using another method of charting your ovulation, such as paying attention to your cervical mucus, or charting your basal body temperature, keep in mind that you are going to get a general idea of when you will be ovulating, but you will not be able to know for sure. Hopefully this will give you some ideas about when to have sex while you are ovulating for the best results! Best wishes!
