  • First I recommend charting your cycle. But if you don't want to bother with that, I'd go with the every other day thing LOL

  • If you've really been trying that long and nothings happened I would see a fertility specialist.

  • Chart your cycle. Every other day can actually diminish your chances by diminishing sperm count.

    Go pick up a copy of Taking Charge Of Your Fertility by Toni Wechsler. Pregnant next cycle. Really.

  • Get a basal thermometer, take your temp orally every morning upon waking, do not talk, get up, just take your temp. Your temp will rise one degree when you ovulate. You can find basal charts on the Internet. One good resource is My Fertility
