  • They work but they get spendy to buy month after month. Plus if you believe in the shettles method you'd be more likely to conceive a boy since you have sex the day you ovulate.

  • "Try" every other day from days 7-14 of your cycle and avoid using any lube. Even saliva.

  • Shettles method is based on the theory that male sperm are faster but die sooner and female sperm are slower but last longer. therefor you'd be most likely to conceive a boy as close to ovulation as possible. Start a prenatal vitamin now for a fertility boost good luck!

  • Yes! The folic acid boosts your chances!! I've also heard the man isn't supposed to wear briefs...boxers instead. And honestly stress does affect your ability to conceive. I know it's hard but try to think about it.

  • I've been taking prenatals since we started trying in July and so far we have not gotten pregnant and all my tests have been normal. I have irregular periods but started using opks at the beginning of this month and so far nothing on day 7 of 20 pack. So if you find any tricks or tips let me know. Lol. GL hon. Baby dust!
