Does too much sex prevent conception?

Many couples fear that too much sex may reduce their chances of conceiving a baby. The basis for this fear is the belief that the man should conserve his ejaculate until the actual time of his spouse’s ovulation.

However, this fear is unfounded and there is no scientific basis to support it. It is simply not true that less sex increases the chances of successful conception. In fact, excessive concern with timing intercourse to match ovulation may actually be counter productive.

These are the facts regarding sex and ovulation:

  • Research shows that the more regularly you enjoy sexual intercourse with your spouse, the higher are your chances of making her pregnant.

  • Having frequent intercourse actually improves your ejaculate.

  • On the other hand, retaining the ejaculate can actually reduce its motility (movement).

  • Research has shown that the density of sperm in the ejaculate does decrease following repeated orgasms. However, this does not affect a couple’s chances of conception.

  • For successful conception to occur, what is most important is that the sperm enters the woman’s fallopian tubes during ovulation.

  • Ideally, couples who are trying to conceive should have sex at least about two to three times a week.
