Frequency=increase: More times you have sex the more likely you are to become pregnant. But, if you are trying to conceive, need to find you when you are ovulating. Look up basal body temp and home ovulation kits. Best time is within 2-3 days of ovulation. Have partner abstain from orgasm/sex until these times. Increases # of sperm and increases chance of success. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr R
