  • Yea, the more you stress, the more it's NOT gonna happen. Just have fun with your husband, you'll get pregnant when you get pregnant

  • A good book to read is Taking Charge of your Fertility by Toni Weschler. It will explain how your body works and how to tell when you are ovulating.

    Another thing to keep in mind is it can take up to a year to ovulate regularly after getting off of birth control.

  • Also if you weren't regular before the pill, then you will not be regular after. If you were regular before, more than likely you will be regular after

  • It can take up to a year for a healthy couple to get pregnant. Timing is the most critical part of conceiving once you get that right you chances go up.


    I recommend charting, prenatals, a healthy life style. Good luck

  • now i am not sure how to tell when and if i ovulate!!  From the first day of bleeding count the days until the start of your next cycle. Typically you ovulate half way through. For example if it is 30 days from Day 1 to the next cycle you ovulate around day 15.  have sex about two days before this date and continue for three or so days past it. since sperm live an average of three days you can have sex every other day or so. 


    and what can i do to be more fertile Eat carrots, bananas, pomegranates, and figs. Also make sure you are getting enough Vitamin E, B-6, manganese, selenium,  and folic acid.


    and how do i tell if my man is sterile of fertile???  Only a doctor can determine this. Make sure he gets Vitamin C, E, B-12, manganese, selenium, zinc, and EFA's
