In brief: Limitless

Well, it's for your wife/girlfriend, obviously, and when those sticks tell her it's time that she's ovulating, you guys can have as much sex as you care to for the next 2-3 days to up your chances of getting pregnant.
It does not matter what positions you are in or how long you are doing it for or what time of day. Best of luck!

In brief: More or less.

Ovulation usually occurs shortly after the OPK detects a rise in the hormone LH which triggers the release of an ovum.
The "fertile period" goes from about 48-72 hours before ovulation and 24 hours afterwards. If you have unprotected sex every day starting about 1 week before midcycle and another 2-3 days after the OPK tests positive, that should do it. Bon chance!

In brief: See below

The ovulation test measures luteinizing hormone(LH) and the LH surge that occurs 12-36 hours before ovulation.
The most fertile time to have intercourse would be the day the test turns positive and the following 2 days. For more information go to http://bit.ly/1QrhSy6
