Urologist 's  Response
Your sperm count should be ideally 40 million/ejaculate, with about 50% of them being motile with a normal morphology.
I would advise you to avoid having intercourse on a daily basis at a time when you are trying to conceive. A better option would be try every 48 hours. This would ensure a reasonably good sperm volume per ejaculate, while waiting too long, i.e. more than 72 hours, might cause you to miss the ovum on the day it is released and therefore lose the chance of conception.
