  • Well why don't you try and buy the ov kits? A year is a long time to be trying without taking it to the next step.

  • If you have been trying for a year then get on Clomid. Also get a fertility monitor.

  • Go by what your cervical mucous looks like at various times of the month- it's the best indicator. Google it out and you will find plenty of info.

  • I would try the ovulating kit..or go to Also maybe considering going to the doctor, usually after a year they are willing to provide help.

  • If you're not having sex on the right days, then it's not gonna work...

    I'd recommend charting your temperature/CM and/or using OPKs to make sure you're getting the right days! Typically, there is a maximum of 6 days (sperm can live in your body up to 5 days, then the egg only survives about 24 hours if it's not fertilized) when you can get pregnant within a cycle, so if you can pinpoint those and BD then, you'll have a greater chance of success! If you're missing those days, then nothing, even various fertility drugs, is going to help.

    Good luck and baby dust to you!
