  • are you using a ovulation calendar? i used got my bfp in three months. some use 2-4 teaspoons of robitussin (just plain robitussin...the only active ingredient is guaifenesin). it increases your cervical mucous during ovulation, which helps get the sperm to the egg. google robitussin and fertility

  • start taking prenatal vitamins... for the folic acid. i took a vitamin that was for a healthy reproductive system after trying to get pregnant for like 2 years and i got pregnant right off the bat

  • i've never actually tried to have a baby (my son was a wonderful oops) but i've heard that if you're trying to conceive you shouldn't think about it when you're doing the deed. just enjoy it. if you stress about getting pregnant, you're less likely to succeed

  • It's best to know when your body is ovulating. I read the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" to understand the cues my body gives when I'm ovulating.

  • It has been said that you should not do anything while you're trying that you would not do while pregnant in terms of health should you conceive. That means you should stay away from unpasteurized products, raw eggs, undercooked meat, certain types of fish high in mercury, and certain soft cheeses. However, I don't think there's anything you eat that makes you less likely to conceive than anything else.

    But if you are trying, you should get on prenatal vitamins before you find out you are pregnant. You can get some at a grocery store. Do a google search for the recommended amounts of each vitamin your prenatals should contain or ask your doctor. You don't need a prescription for them.

    As for positions, I really think so long as sperm goes in, you're probably equally likely in any position.
