Q: Is it possible to have too much sex when trying to conceive?
A: Too much sex can be a problem when you are trying to conceive (TTC) because it may lower his sperm count. If his sperm are OK, then you will probably increase your chance of getting pregnant by having sex once a day. Having sex more than once a day, however, may decrease the number of sperm, even in men with a normal sperm count. It is suggested to have sex every other day if he has a lower-than-average sperm count.
