Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you are trying for pregnancy, you should have intercourse everyday during your fertile days, and monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation to time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Presence of egg white cervical mucus (EWCM) suggests that you are most fertile and that the egg is about to be released from ovary. If fertile mucus is present, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days, and, after ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
