  • Ovulation predictor test are the best way to go. Don't think to much about it either. If you stress out you will not only not get pregnant but you will also mess up your cycle even more. When you get your positive OPT have a glass of wine before trying and prop your butt up n a pillow for about 15 min after. You on the bottom is best for conception. I read all this stuff while I was TTC and it seemed to have worked because when I did all of that stuff combined got PG that moth. I hope that it works for you but everyone is different. Best of luck and keep me posted. I wanna know if it works for you to!

  • Just have lots of sex and don't think too much. I found I conceived twice during months that I was sure it didn't happen because I wasn't paying attention. Also, keep in mind it takes the average couple 8 months to conceive. Relax.

  • like a previous poster said get an ovulation predictor test. when it tells you your most fertile or close to it try to have sex everyday or at least every other day during your fertile periods. also try different positions when you have sex, and try and lay still for at least 20 minutes after sex so that the sperm will have the best chance to travel upwards towards your egg. relax, have fun, and don't stress too much and it will happen. good luck and best wishes to you!

  • be aware that taking hormones may make any hormone related test less than 100% reliable. you want to take your temperature every morning before you get out of bed and chart it. when you ovulate you will have a shift in temperature. Also your cervical fluid will tell you when and if you have ovulated. You can have a period and not ovulate. For mor detailed information ont his and other ovulatory signs and fertility info i suggest you check out "Taking charge of your fertility "toni weschler , the web site is tcoyf.com. You can download the charting software. This is the best that I have found for info and I have concieved 2 children because of this information. the charting software is awesome. Best of luck! hope this is helpful.
