What is Timed Intercourse?
Using Timed Intercourse involves monitoring for ovulation to determine your fertile window or the best time during each cycle for intercourse when you are trying to get pregnant.
Cycle Monitoring may use ultrasound, hormone blood testing, and ovulation prediction kits (OPKs) to determine the correct timing for intercourse. Your doctor may order medication for your cycle or your cycle can be unmedicated (natural cycle).
Some reasons to consider Timed Intercourse
- Ovulation issues
- Determining your fertile window
- Sexual difficulties
Prior to this phase a patient would have had their initial visit with the doctor, completed all testing, reviewed results, and decided on timed intercourse as a treatment plan.
