for any of you that got pregnant within 6 months or under what did you do to get pregnant so fast ie: s_x every day, every other day, butt on pillow (how high), how long before you pee'd after s_x, etc etc. Please tell me everything i should do. We've been trying for 6 months (I'm 39) and have done everything we can think of so now we I'm going to go get testings done to see if we have a problem but maybe its something we arent doing or are doing we shouldnt be doing. Can anyone tell me what they did that worked for them pls and thanx.

All I can say is go to a fertility expert sooner than later. All those positions are myths. Also, I used to stay in bed after s_x for 40 minutes (you only really need 15-20 minutes). Also, if you go to the doc. and they prescribe chlomid, try it for 1 or 2 months, but no longer. It messes you up. I would go straight to the ovulation stimulating shots. Just my 2 cents.

thanx lbw, I havent heard of ovulation stimulating shots. I think my problem may be too low of at temp. I've been BBT the whole time and i think my temp is too low early in the cycle during af and then not high enough maybe the last of my cycle and I'm very dry (takes forever to get enough mucous for s_x) so i think i have estrogen or progesterone probs. Just a guess though. I will look into this things you mentioed. thanx.

I used the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor and got pregnant my 2nd cycle using it. (I had missed m/c in Jan and was desperate b/c nothing seemed to be working after). We had s_x a cople of days after it said high- we did it every day, twice on the day I ovulated, and one more time the day after. I would also put my legs up to my chest for about 10 minutes after- if I could...We were actually visiting my parents during ovulation- so that's a story in itself...but, the last time I got pregnant we were visiting a different realative..maybe try a vacation??? GOOD LUCK!

I put hubby on CoEnzyme Q10 and a men's 1 a day vitamin & I was on prenatals. I also used an ovulation predictor kit. We didn't have s_x for about 3 days before my fertile time and then every 36 hours or so over the fertile week. Like in the morning 1 day and then the next evening. We got pregnant on month 3 of trying .. Good luck & lots of baby dust to you!!

Ali, I got pregnant both times on the first shot. We clocked my cycle and bd'ed every other day. When we were done I would lay with my hips slightly elevated and wouldn't move for about a 1/2 hour afterwards. I would try to hold off on peeing as long as possible. I also started taking prenatals as soon as we decided we wanted a baby. Good Luck and *~*~*BABY DUST*~*~*!!!


Q - July 11

We didn't do anything different. Just had s_x whenever we felt like it, however we wanted, and I peed right away usually afterwards, as I am suseptible to UTI's.

thanx guys, i think i'm doing everything suggested. Ive been using opk's clear blue easy ovulation kits for 3 or 4 of the cycles so i know i'm ovulating and when. i'm not sure if we should be bd everynight or every other night so this time we did it day 4, 8, waited til +'ve opk test on day 13, bd day 13,14,15 and we will do again tonight day17. We couldnt last night (day 16) . My temps were 96.9 days 12,13,14 then went up on day 15 to 97.5, dropped on day 16 to 97.1 and up last night (day17) to 97.8. So i figure ive ovulated, we did it the right time and yesterday i was dry, today cervix is lower but OS still open so we will try one more night before i give him a few days off heehee.


ali - July 11

sorry messsed up we did it day 8,10,13,14,15 and opk positive showed on day 13.

Ali, I was sure that getting pregnant would take a very long time for my husband and I as I had an ectopic pregnancy last time and lost a tube. A friend of mine had told me about a method using your cervical mucous. That seemed to be the trick for us and not trying so hard. I became pregnant three months after stopping the pill. You can just search cerival mucous on a search engine and read up on it - might be the trick for you!! Good Luck

Me personally I tryied Lydia Pinkham tablets for the month of April, May I concieved, i am now 8 weeks and 4 days. I had been trying 4 over a year. Nothing helped, till I tried them


Charlene - July 11

One more thing, I heard that drinking raspberry leaf tea was also good. I've heard many stories of people conceiving once they started this. Coincidence - not sure

I got pregnant the first month I started trying right after birth control for 13 yrs. The whole week I thought I was ovulating we had s_x everyday. A friend of mine tried for a year and told me to use a pillow underneath (the 1st time they did that, she got pregnant). So we did that everytime and sometimes (it sounds funny) my husband held my legs up, raising my whole lower body and I stayed like that for about 5 minutes after. I didn't get out of bed for the rest of the night. It sounds silly, but I got pregers that month

Vitamins (prenatal) and folic are key.. At over 35, you should go for testing since if you haven't conceived yet after 6 months, they will test you. I am 39 and pg with #1 (almost 26 w); we had a lot of unexplained m/c's (and was tested for everything- nothing came up) but getting pregnant was not an issue. I dumpled temping (made me nervous and was hard to not move in the am before putting thermometer in)- the ovulation machine was key- and cervical mucus was a huge sign- together, it was apparent.. With testing you can see if DH's guys are ok since if they are slightly behind- you may have to TTC every other day. I cut out caffeine (which I would have to do anyway now being preggo). We were really frustrated with the losses (all natural pg's) and decided to speed things up (praying one would work) by injectibles- the IUI itself (insemination) had no impact in my opinion. We were about to go for IVF to reduce chances of a loss. My theory is the injectibles helped my follicles mature more since with all of this TTC and losses, I was nervous and kept ovulating on the earlish side (day 8/9/10). Anyway- here we are from that first cycle. Oh- and that cycle we were just doing a method covered by insurance while waiting to get the $ together for IVF- so I was relaxed and even drank more wine (before I gave up alcohol per bouts between losses).. Hope this helps/make sense. But please try to find an RE that is kind, will listen to you and is supportive. My first RE left town and I had to interview other ones- ranging from the cold review of my options to adopt to donor egg (when no test showed anything was "wrong").. we had been trying for less than a year at that point - so - there are doctors that try to cash in on your fears.. best, L
