We've been TTC for almost a year now, and nothing's worked. Does anyone have any tips or advice? we're both perfectly healthy and nothing's wrong with our reproductive organs... (even though he's military and will ALL of those shots, there very well could be)

  • Ensure that you have intercourse when you ovulate, some swear by the missionary position and then lay on the bed with a pillow under her hips for at least 20 minutes afterward. Avoid scented tampons, artificial lubricants, and douching. Have your man wear boxers instead of briefs. Consider using herbal supplements like chaste tree berry extract. Take 2-4 teaspoons of Robitussin (the plain kind with no letters after it, the only active ingredient is guaifenesin)3 to four times a day to thin the cervical mucus.

    It took us 2 years and we've been trying again for a couple of years. These are a couple of my fav. sites:,  Good luck! : )
