MrsPhilly :  I have a tilted uterus too, I’ve been trying that trick. Hopefully it works for me soon. 

 

 

mrspuppylove :  Thanks for the thread I’m looking for tips too. Lol

MrsPhilly :  I have a tilted uterus too!  Ugh.  I’ll have to try that next cycle if this isn’t our cycle.

iamali :  It looks like you didn’t BD once you got your positive OPK in your first chart.  That could have been it too?

Everyone has their anecdotes, but you should probably read Taking Charge of Your Fertility or a book based on science.

The month I got pregnant I was using robitissin 3x a day for a week up to ovulation. I was also temping.

mrspuppylove :  I understand that, but its good that you are seeing a specialist since they typically recommend seeing one after one year of trying if you are below 35. So hopefully you find out some answers soon!

Baby aspirin. No idea if it was the reason but in 11 cycles both times I starting using it I fell pregnant 🤷🏻‍♀️

SeaOfLove :  true! But we did it the night before a positive opk 8 hours later so doing every other day I thought we may have been ok but turns out we weren’t! Next month was ok though 🙂

iamali :  honestly, you could do it every day for every cycle and your odds are still the same. It’s great it worked for you, but EOD and ED have the same statistical likeness of resulting in pregnancy after 6 cycles of trying.

Maca & Mucinex.

We were NTNP for 2.5 years, and actively TTC almost a full year. The month we got pregnant we only had sex ONE TIME. The difference is I’d taken Maca for 2 weeks, and had a cold the week before so I was taking a bunch of Mucinex. That pregnancy ended in a loss, but once I’m clear to try again I will most definitely use Maca again.

KayP818 :  it worked times 2! Got pregnant with twins that cycle from my third iui. I dont remember if i did it with the first two failed cycles. It was probably a coincidence but you never know!

mrspuppylove :  I am on cycle 16 so I feel your pain. Did you get your HSG done and has DH gotten his SA? Those are the two biggies you want done. Also bloodwork!
Things to try: Preseed, cups, BD Timing, OPKs, Charting, Medicine, Legs lifted and laying on  your back after BD… etc etc.

I’m taking pre-natals religiously (which apparently also help with egg development) and Maca. 

I know that the science says it’s not necessary but I’ve been lying still in bed for about half an hour before I get up to go pee following sex, give the swimmers a little extra time before they have to fight gravity.

I didn’t know the sock thing, I often kick mine off in the middle of the night but I’ll try to stop doing that!

We’re in our 6th cycle and I’m currently in my FW (I got a positive OPK last night) we were BDing every other day last week, planning on BDing every day this week if I can manage it. Thankfully DH is pretty much always up for it 🙂
