Is having sex every other day just as effective as having sex everyday when trying to conceive?

YES: Certainly monitor your cycles and your most fertile time is usually 12-14 days after the start of your last cycle. Waiting also allows your partner's sperm count to elevate and prolonged (20-30 minutes ) foreplay will increase vaginal secretions and ejaculatory volume.

When ttc, is it better to have sex everyday or every other day?

Either: It probably makes little to no difference. I suggest patients try every other day to give the male partner a day of abstinence. Its important to start a day or 2 before ovulation though.
