  • honestly, it'll happen when it happens. its always the people trying to conceive that can't... then other women with one oops are totally pregnant. its the way the world works.

  • I got online and figured out when my most fertile week was. We had sex every day just for that week. It worked both times. Good luck! :-)

  • I tried for years to get pregnant. I had to get on metformin for PCOS but I also charted every day and took the ovulation tests.

  • the funny thing is...the only sure way to get artificially. I was told when i was 10 i couldnt have any children due to something called PCOD. well when i met my husband i was on birth control...within two months of being off it i got pregnant! well so much for that...well after that we were never much for protection...actually never at all! and we had our second daughter FIVE years later. It took only two months to get pregnant with the first, and five years with the second. Getting pregnant can be unpredictable. But i have heard getting one of those ovulation kits can help! i would check into that!

  • do NOT have sex all the time if you want to get pregnant. I had a friend who went to a fertility dr and he said give the guy a rest so his little guys are strong. He said wait a week in between sex acts. good luck

  • I have researched and from what I have found it is better to do it every other day around the time you ovulate, specifically 3-4 days prior. My husband and I used a different method and had sex everyday, 4 days before ovulation, during, and 1 day after, I will let you know if it works lol . Good luck!

  • Dr told me the harder you try the less likely you are to conceive because your body and his are both stressing over it. You gotta be relaxed and just enjoy yourselves.

  • Go pick up a copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Wechsler. BEST book on the market for acheiving pregnancy. How good? Iwasted money on ivulation kits for three months. NOTHING.

    Bought the book...pregnant the VERY NEXT cycle. Because I found that our timing had ALL been wrong. It's not just having sex every other day. It's having sex on the RIGHT days! The book tells you how to figure out when those days are.
