Description:
My husband works shift work so it is a real challenge for us to try and time things ideally, but based on this chart, when would the ideal days have been to try and time intercourse if trying to conceive (an if he has lower than average sperm motility)? Thanks ladies!

CD 21-26 were your optimal fertile days. Some TTCers skip every other day during these days so that sperm count can recover. Best of luck!

What the previous poster said.

Just keep in mind that your optimal fertile days are not always the same from one cycle to the next. Sperm can survive up to like 4 days in your body. Your egg can survive for about 24 hours w/o being fertilized. So your best timing is usually up to 4 days before you ovulate and then a day or so afterwards.

Good luck!
