Trying to work out what’s best for keeping to the attempt schedule but also wanting to optimise chances! Thank you again!
    Yes just have another attempt when it makes sense with your schedule to do so. Two that night, or one that night, one the next morning, or one that night and again the next day. If doing e4d plus one you NEED to have the additional attempt, don't just now count on the pos OPK attempt if it's on the same day as the other attempt is meant to fall.

    No, it's not a typo. "every four days" is just a code word we use to describe regular unprotected sex that is just close enough together to always be in with an attempt that has a decent chance at the egg, but far enough apart to

    there are two main ways we do e4d - we count it ONE (attempt) TWO (no attempt) THREE (no attempt) FOUR (attempt) and this is what I call the "every 72 hour" pattern. (but you can see how many people still count that as every four days.) Or you can count it ON ONE (attempt) TWO (no attempt) THREE (no attempt) FOUR (no attempt) FIVE (attempt) (but you can see how many people didn't think that was every four days!) and then some people were even not counting the days of attempt like this: Attempt day, then four whole days with nothing, then another attempt.

    saying "e3d" and "e4d" and "e5d" was super confusing because I could never ever be sure how people were counting the days. We were having people say "e4d" but counting the days differently than other people and this was happening constantly. People were having sex every other day and calling that e3d. It was a disaster.

    So now we have e4d, the technique, the general principle of regular unprotected sex, and you can do that technique with about 72 hours between, or 96, or even more than that if you're not in a hurry to get pregnant.

    Hi again! I’m afraid I have another question if thats ok!
    This month for a variety of reasons our attempt schedule is all over the place. It was Saturday then Monday and then I got a positive OPK this morning which was a few days later than expected. So do we have an attempt today which would mean two days in between the three attempts or wait and do another attempt tomorrow or not at all? Thank you!
    Edited to say that we have had the attempt today and I’m hoping we haven’t ruined the sway ��

    My motto is, when in doubt, have an attempt.

    It all depended on how big a hurry you were in to conceive. If you had been trying for a while I'd have had you add an attempt, if you just started and weren't in a hurry I would have likely had you stick with the attempt you had and just ahve your regular scheduled BD the next day(today). But having an attempt was all good! Good luck!
