Are there things that I can be doing to be more prone to getting pregnant (aside from the obvious)...?

I eat healthy (most the time) I get regular exercise, I sleep well and my "intimacy level" is right on target. Am I missing something? Is there something else I should be doing? I want to consider all other options before proceeding with expensive fertility treatments and testing...

  • don't dwell on getting pregnant. (I know thats hard.) My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage. I was distraught & wanted to get pregnant again right away. Tried very hard. Well.... thirteen months later ,I'd basically given up The next month I was pregnant.

  • WARNING T.M.I. for some:

    Missionary position with legs elevated as much as possible-ankles around his neck if you can manage that

    Diet-lots of dark green veggies, soy and red fruits as well as chocolate :) induces love feeling

    His diet-lots of legumes, mushrooms and medium green veggies also exotic fruit juices :)

    Good luck!

  • There isn't any special way to have sex. No you do not have to lift your legs in the air for 5 minutes after sex. Don't believe those things.

    Just take prenatal vitimins and have unprotected sex. Sometimes it can take a few months before it happens. But just relax and allow nature to take control.

  • prenatal vitamins help

    After intercourse evaluate your pelvis

     And don't have intercourse everyday or multiple times a day it will lower your sperm count
