  • Sex once every other day, chart your basal body temp. to see when you ovulate, missionary position, eat healthy, make sure you get enough folic acid, exercise, consider taking herbal supplements like chaste tree berry extract, relax, 3-4 teaspoons Robitussin(the kind that only has guaifenesin in it) 3-4 times a day to thin cervical mucus, don't smoke, don't drink, have your man wear boxers, limit caffeine, see a Dr. to make sure there aren't any fertility problems.

  • PP gave very good advice. Look for this book: "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler (sp?). If you suspect that there is a problem after a year (or less if you are a little older), see a doctor. If they call it "unexplained" infertility, it may be endometriosis. My doctor said that he almost always find endo when he does a laparoscopy on a women with unexplained infertility. Hopefully that will never be an issue for you. GL!
