  • I'm sorry for your loss, i also had a miscarriage in Nov. the period thing i don't think that works, just have sex when you're ovulating if you're not sure when that is go to there's a ovulating calendar just put when your period started and it will tell you when you're ovulating and you can get busy and don't worry we're on the same boat baby dust to you.

  • I would really recommend that you read the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler, which teaches you ways to identify from your body's own signs when you are most fertile. Having sex on your period is not terribly likely to help you get pregnant- for most women it's too early in their cycle. You need to time sex around ovulation to maximize your odds. I'm sorry for your loss- I had a m/c with my first pregnancy too and know it's a really hard thing to go through.

  • Get the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility.

    And the only people who "get pregnant on their period" are people with SUPER short cycles who ovulate directly after their period. The don't actually ovulate while menstrating but very shortly after.

  • Along with charting dates, you could do things like make small changes in your diet.

    It's been a proven fact that drinking herbal teas such as orange or black tea, can help increase your fertility. Even switching from white to wheat bread can help.

    Hope you'll be blessed with a beautiful pregnancy!

  • Having intercourse during your period doesn't work as this is when your body is shedding the lining of your uterus so you can't actually get pregnant at that time. If you read the book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility, I think it will help you out alot with learning your body's natural fertility signs like cervical mucus and body temperature so that you can time your babymaking for your most fertile time. I hope that you have a successful pregnancy! I, too, had a m/c in the summer and another one at the first of January so I understand what you have gone through.
