Your girlfriend should start taking pregnancy vitamins especially Folic Acid. She should also be eating a healthy balanced diet high in Zinc (Zinc helps produce good quality eggs and sperm). She should stop smoking and drinking(if she does). It's also a good idea to cut out caffine and switch to decaffinated versions of drinks.

It's best to have sex 3 times a week in order to hit the ovulation day as no one can be 100% sure of when it is. Your girlfriend could monitor her BBT and cervical Mucus which will help predict ovulation or you could buy ovulation prediction kits from the chemist or supermarket.

once you have sex, get your girlfriend to put a pillow under her hips for 5 - 15 minutes. This helps the sperm to swim up into the cervix without fighting gravity too much. Also when you have sex, it's best to do it in positions where the man is on top on the penis is close to the cervix (doggy style).

Yes sperm can survive for up to 5 days. Good luck ttc
