How long does it take for sperm to redevelop after ejaculation?

My wife and I are trying to conceive. Is it true that we should wait 48 hours between the times we have sex so my sperm can redevelop? The thing is, I ended up ejaculating in my sleep and then had sex with my wife about six hours later because it was one of the key days for getting pregnant. Do you think my sperm will be too weak or undeveloped to get her pregnant because I ejaculated too recently? Thanks for your help.

I’ve been having unprotected sex, but my partner pulls out before he comes...could I still get pregnant?

I'm 32 and I should have known better. I recently started dating a guy, and we ended up having sex without a condom. My period comes every 29 days and last for about five days of blood and another seven days of on-and-off brown discharge. We had sex nine days after my period started and he pulled out of me before he came. Six days later, we had sex again...this time with a condom, but he first was inside me without a condom. But when he came, he had the condom on. We had sex three more times that night...all without a condom, but every time he pulled out. What do you think are my chance of getting pregnant? I haven't been on birth control in two years.
