Male and Female Hormones: How Often to Have Sex to Get Pregnant

Having sex once in 2 days during your fertile window is the recommended frequency to increase your chances of conception. 

At exactly this frequency, the man’s sperm is capable of containing the largest amount of active spermatozoids. Keep in mind that abstinence from sex might lead to a decrease of healthy cells in the sperm. Sex outside the fertile window will improve the reproductive health of both partners, as the frequency of sexual intercourse has a direct effect on testosterone production. The more often you have sex, the higher the content of male reproductive hormones is. An active sexual life is vital for a woman’s health too. The most important thing when trying for a baby is to relax, listen to yourself and maintain a romantic mood.
