Study Suggests Daily Sex, Rather Than "Saving Up" Sperm, Improves Odds of Pregnancy

Science Fair (USA Today): Don't save that sperm -- daily sex may increase pregnancy chances:

Reported Tuesday at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) meeting in Amsterdam, the study involved 118 men suffering from "higher-than-normal" genetic damage to the sperm. The study led by Australia's David Greening of IVF Sydney in Wollongong found that after a week of daily sex, genetically damaged sperm dropped by an average of 26% among the men.
