I would also add “eat full-fat dairy”. Studies have shown that even just replacing 1 serving of low-fat dairy with full-fat dairy a day improved conception odds.

I personally eat only full-fat diary anyway. When I was TTC, I made extra sure to eat a cup of full-fat yogurt for breakfast every morning.

I agree with the full fat dairy.  I don’t really have many tricks – which is maybe why it isn’t working 😉  But this is what we do:

  • green tea, AF-O
  • stay in bed laying down for at least 30 minutes after
  • BD EOD and the morning of an O spike
  • try to eat for implantation after O and stick with warm lemon water as a drink
  • prenatals and folic acid
  • progesterone cream after O until AF or temp drop

Are you doing any charting? I used the methods in “Take Charge of Your Fertility” without changing much else in my life and we fell pretty quickly. Charting is a pretty good way to identify if there is anything going on in your cycle. Has your Darling Husband been tested? That’s also an easy way to see if the problem might be with him (he should also be eating/exercising and maybe taking supplements too). I found this blog entry helpful:


Good luck I hope you are successful very soon 🙂

Hey there — sounds like a good plan in place! The only thing is I feel like I have read green tea is not good for ttc — due to the caffeine and adverse effects it has on frolic acid absorption –  I think! You would have to read more into it, I feel like when I was ttc I was drinking it then stopped.  I also took soy isoflavones (like a natural clomid) for 5 days during my period,not sure if that helped? But I did get pregnant the third month on it.

I actually think the biggest “trick” that got us pg ( after trying for about 8-9 months ) was my refocusing attention on other things — I started playing the guitar and taking weekly lessons. That took up a lot of my down time. I also started looking for and interviewing for new jobs, since I wa so unhappy where I was. So the month it worked, I was barely charting, but following along, and it was our month!

Good luck!

@ADMBoston:  From what I’ve researched, green tea is ok during AF – O and after that you stop drinking it.  It can inhibit absorption of folic acid so that is why you would stop drinking it at that point, until  you get AF. 

Just for others, I would do some research about any products containing soy as there as a number of adverse effects.  I know when I was looking for porgesterone cream the one thing I was to avoid was products that were soy based.  Just something to consider! 

These are the sites I use for the eating:
