Ovulation strips alone can’t guarantee pregnancy – Gynaecologist
A Specialist Obstetrician Gynaecologist with the Women’s Health Obstetrics and Gynaenecology, Dr Dixie Constantini has advised couples who are trying to get babies not to work with ovulation strips alone because they might miss their fertility window.
“When trying to get a baby, it is important to have sex every other day or at least three times a week (minus your bleeding days,that is if you do want to skip this period).
In an interview with The Spectator on her advice for “trying to conceive women,” she observed that some couples would like to limit themselves to only ovulation period to have sex.
She explained that having sex as often as possible did not only increase the chances of a woman getting pregnant, but sperm motility was better after a day of abstinence.
“If you are trying to get a baby and not having sex at least three times a week, it is time to up your game” she advised.
Dr. Constantini cautioned that “the longer you abstain, the lesser your chances of getting pregnant”.
The Specialist explained that sperm quality usually reduced after 10 days of abstinence in men with normal sperm and after two days of abstinence in men with infertility problems.\
