I was wondering if anyone has any advise on the best/fastest way to get pregnant? I've been off the pill(ortho trycyclen) for about 3 months now and ttc. As of today, I am 8 dpo but have had no symptoms.....Any comments??

Chart it darling. If your cycles are regular you should know roughly how long (ex28 days) and 14 days (roughly) after your period you ovulate. You really should look into charting your temperature. Look at your cm and chart its consistency. I thought it would be easy too. I've been ttc for 6-7 months. Im 21 so i thought it might be easier. I dunno. This month is kinda my break...but i am ovulating right now, so i try to bd as much as possible. hehe

Thanks for your input Kira. I've been charting it for the last few months. I must've gotten back to my normal cycle as soon as I got off the pill because every month, bam, right on the dot, 31 day cycle, AF comes. So, this month I'm crossing my fingers that AF will not come as expected on the 26th. Thanks for your input.

Try an ovulation predictor test. If you are charting and still not hitting it right, this can help. They come with like five pee on sticks, and it will tell you when you LH surge is, which means you will ovulate within 24 to 36 hours. Also don't use any lubrication unless it is preseed, it can harm sperm. Try keeping the sperm in after s_x by elevating your legs for about 20 minutes. Really though it is all about timing your ovulation. Good luck!!

try not to stress or think about it too much becasue we've been trying for 3 months and no luck, I've been off birth control for 5 months and every month we've tried I've stressed.. My doc says all the women he talks to say when they aren't trying is when it happens.. That's going to be my motto next month. Good Luck
