What is the optimal frequency of intercourse for a healthy couple trying to conceive? Evidence-Based Answer: Sexual intercourse is likely to result in conception only if it occurs during a 6-day period ending on the day of ovulation. Given that ovulation is highly variable, couples trying to conceive should have intercourse every 1 to 2 days to optimize their chances of pregnancy (SOR: B, cohort study and consensus guideline).
