    BD every second or third day will NEVER sway pink, only blue. For frequent BD to sway pink, it has to be every single day for 7-10 days. BD every 2-4 days is perfect for blue.

    So because I don't know when I will O we should actually attempt every 2-4 days. That's right isn't it? I keep doubting myself and getting all worried!

    Yes, and not only that, but that's perfect for blue anyway.

    Thanks for this thread. I've been really struggling with the timing of my sway and how to BD. I'm 37 and DH is 41 and abstaining for us is a no go due to the possible sperm quality in older blokes. We also want to get pregnant sooner than later due to our ages so FR and DTD through O is our best option. For some reason (not sure why as it's not the most important part of a sway) I just want the timing part be something I'm really happy with and not regret later and say "damn it I should have abstained and done a o+12". So I want to have it really clear in my mind why I did what I did.

    If we started to BD every 2nd night from now would that be ok for blue?

    That makes sense. It sounds like you're making the best decision.

    Unfortunately often when you're older your egg quality is lower too so the egg might not even survived much past the 12 hours after ovulation (IF you can time O+12 well), and even if the egg does last more than 12hrs it takes 4hrs or so for the sperm to be able to reach/fertilise the egg so the egg could be easily dead before your swimmers even are ready to try and catch it.

    If you want a good compromise you could always try DTD on the day of a pos OPK and then you will KNOW that you have swimmers in there ready and waiting for the egg when it arrives. That would give you a good chance of pregnancy too.
