  • Eat a healthy diet and relax. Hubby needs to eat healthily also.
    If he likes tight anything from the waist down he should stop doing that and wear looser clothing in the crotch area
    Fall asleep in the mating position. (still connected)
    After intercourse lay with hips elevated for at least a half hour.

    All these have been sworn to by countless people. Do they work? At least in the minds of those people it did.
    Track when you ovulate and eat healthy are my two best pieces of advice though

  • Have SEX!! lol jk but really make sure u eat healthy well balanced meals don't drink or smoke . I dunno what u have tired but u could take BC pills for a few months and then stop. Track ur ovulation they sell kits at the store. Just know it takes a healthy couple at least a year to conceive.

  • First stop using the word "pregers".

    My guess is that your eggs are remaining dormant until you stop using that terminology.

  • lol. anon. I hate that word to... and Prego...

    anyway... I have also heard it recommended to have a glass of wine before sex to help you relax. Track your fertility using the calender, basal temps or by watching for other signals from your body that tell you, you may be ovulating. Consider Ovulation predictor test. Eat well, stay healthy.

  • Just don't think about it. I always hear people say they wind up getting pregnant after they finally give up. I think it's all the stress and pressure. Just relax.

  • There are kits you can buy at the store that test your urine for the hormone your body produces during ovulation. When the test turns up positive, you are recommended to have intercourse within about the next 24 to 36 hours.
