In brief: Not in the longterm

In general, men continue to produce sperm.
When trying to conceive, i recommend 2days abstinence leading up to ovulation, then intercourse every 1-2days during ovulation. The idea here is to optimize not only the number of sperm, but also their quality as well as the quality of the seminal fluid.
