  • Just keep tryin' hon. You could always talk to your doctor about options. Keep your head up, I'm sure it'll happen when you least expect it. I've known people who had to try much longer than 5 months, but eventually got pregnant. :)

  • As soon as you stop trying, your going to get pregnant. I know its a weird concept but it seems to happen toeveryone I know who is TTC. My friend tried for two years to get pregnant, and when she finally gave up and decided she must not be able to have kids, she got pregnant.
    Good luck, I hope everything works out for you!

  • Take this advice. Stop! Go on a cruise or vacation. If he does have to go on chemo, you want have time later. When you get away and begin to relax and think about other things, it will happen. You both are feeling pressure and trying to control situations that you can't control. Plus, your love will get you thru this. TOSSING YOU TONS OF WISHES!

  • Don't stress about it to much and it will happen. It happens when your not concentrating on trying

  • I have definitely heard that once you stop trying, it'll happen. And I'm sure that it's hard to not stress, but stress can and definitely will play a try to calm down. I agree with go on a vacation if possible...

  • Have sex every other day beginning when your period stops. You may be missing your ovulation; not everyone ovulates the same time in their cycle. Every other day will hit the ovulation while not lowering his sperm count. Good luck- you can also try the OTC ovulation kits. It took us 4 years and a fertility specialist. We are trying for our 2nd now, but I can't use the kits, because my hormone levels cause false positives and false hopes, since I don't ovulate often. Good luck!
