HAVE YOU HAD YOURS TODAY?
Some men should have sex every day to maximise the chances of getting their partner pregnant, researchers say.
It is known for couples with fertility problems to abstain from sex for several days to boost sperm numbers before trying to conceive.
However, the Sydney University team, addressing the American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference, said this could mean poorer quality sperm.
One UK expert said daily sex might be better for men with damaged sperm.
Dr Allan Pacey, the secretary of the British Fertility Society, said that while not having sex allowed the numbers of sperm to build up, there was a “trade-off” between quality and quantity.

“I remember one couple in which the woman would only let the man ejaculate when she was in her fertile period, so the poor chap was going without for almost a month at a time.”
