  • it took me 10 months. you should have sex every other day. that way there is always live sperm present. sperm lives for three days inside you. having sex every day lowers his sperm count. also if it takes a while, you should start charting your temp. they will not even start doing fertility testing until you've done this. you have to take your temp. the same time every day before you get out of bed. i forget though how long you have to be charting it for. i was in the hospital for something else and i told my dr. that we'd been trying for 8 months and she told me about the charting your temp. thing. and there is a position that makes sure that the sperm is deposited as close to the opening as possable. you on your back with your legs over his shoulders. you need to be fairly flexable for that though.

  • It took me over 5 years with my first. I went to a fertility doctor the next time and it still took several years.
