  • When I was TTC my daughter I looked up an ovulation chart on the internet. My periods weren't super regular either but I thought it couldn't hurt.
    I typed in the first day of my last period and it gave me the days I "should" be most fertile.

    I also tried all of the old wives tales, lol!
    Apparently if you do it on a night with a full moon then it increases your chances. It makes sense I guess since our cycles are so in tune with the moon and the ocean tides and all of that.

    I would lay on my back with my legs against the wall and walk my feet up the wall so I was pretty much standing on my head, after sex.

    I got pregnant first try.

  • Start charting your body temp, cervical mucous, and cervical postition. The book by Toni Weschler "Taking Charge of your Fertility" is a good reference on how to do so. By doing this, you can determine if you are ovulating and when the best time to have sex will be. It will also help if you are still experiencing issues and need a doctor to help. They can get valuable info from your charts instead of taking a stab in the dark at what the problem is.
