  • You are trying too hard! When hubby and I were trying for my daughter I was told to only have sex every 3 days or so. That way hubby's sperm has a chance to build back up so to speak. And stop trying! Most peopel I knwo who tried for a long time finally got pregnant when they quit trying. So relax, take it easy try to enjoy sex without it being a baby making process. Good luck!

  • I was on BC for 14 years I was 29 when I got pregnant. I stopped taking my pill when I was 28. I went to a herbal store and bought tea leaves and a tea leave ball and bought tea leaves called Red Raspberry tea leaves.... You soak the tea leaves in the ball for no more then 5 minutes in hot water. I drank that once a day. I also stopped smoking started to do more exercises. It took in total 6 months for us to get pregnant. Now we have a year old beautiful daughter.

    Good Luck and I hope it works for the 2 of U.

  • I took Ovcon35 for 6 months, went off of it in January of 2007 and have been trying for a baby ever since. I never got spikes in temps or positive OPKs, either, for nine months before I finally got a specialist to look at me and we found I had PCOS and that Ovcon35 was actually making it worse (this confused me because I've heard some BCPs are good for PCOS, but apparently some aren't). I'd say have a doctor check you out. But it can take anywhere from 3-6 months for birth control to get out of your system.
