History of miscarriage. Done HSG. Taking aspirin and clomid. How often should I have sex?

My husband and I are trying to conceive. We have an 18mth old and a 29mth old. We have had 2 recent miscarriages (5/12 & 9/12). I had an HSG before my first child and husband had sperm analysis. His test said that he had plenty of sperm with good motility but a few had abnormal morphology (we were told very few and not to worry). Since the miscarriages I had some bloodwork and I am positive for the lupus antibody so I am on baby aspirin once a day. We are now on our 4th round of 50mg of clomid and I am ovulating. In just curious how often should we have sex? Once a day around ovulation or just every other day? Thanks

There has been some speculation that couples who are trying to conceive should reduce the frequency of sexual intercourse during the fertile window to increase sperm supply. This is not true for most couples. While couples with known male factor issues should consult their doctor for the best intercourse strategy, couples with normal fertility and no known sperm issues should not reduce the frequency of intercourse in the fertile window. 

Fertile window is 5 days before ovulation and the day of ovulation.
It makes up 6 days.

Your probability of conception is increased when you have intercourse multiple times in your fertile window. While it is true that sperm concentrations decrease slightly with increasing intercourse frequency, frequent intercourse is still more likely to result in conception than infrequent intercourse for couples with no male factor fertility issues. Each additional act of intercourse within your fertile window increases your probability of conception for that cycle.

Since there is no male fertility issue with you,sex can be performed as much time as it is possible for you.

Hi thanks for your question.
You can have sex every day,but perferably abstein from sex 3 to 4 days before the ovulation and then you can go for sex daily around the ovulation and post ovulation.
Hope this answers your question.
