TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

He don't want to "try" meaning me tracking my ovulation and temping and having planned sex around my fertile window. He wants to have it natural and enjoy it. He said it's to much pressure and stress on both of us. What should I do?? He just wants us to enjoy our selfs. We quit drinking though I guess that's a plus. But my question is what are our chances 😢

Everyone has a 20% chance of getting pregnant every month unless there are other issues. You can always use opks but don't tell him, hey honey I'm ovulating let's have sex.

Or have sex about every other day and don't track your cycle. Good luck

Have you been tested? do you have any fertility issues? Also how long have you been ttc?

my dh said he doesn't want to know the logistics, just to tell him when i get a positive pregnancy test. I know him and it would stress him out. SO I plan on stopping my b/c pills on the 28th and I am not telling him anything.

I didnt temp or use opk's for my 3 pregnancies, I only put a big P on my  calender so I would know when to expect the next one. After loosing my last baby and I have endo, I want to do what I can to get our timing right. Plus Im 34.5 yrs now so my eggs aren't getting any better........

I just kinda posted about this... my dh really only wants to bd. He does extra stuff (like testing SA) when i tell him he has an appt... but he would prefer not to... we r supposed to be starting iui soon so that will be interesting.. but all the stuff i have to do (metformin, hsgs, etc) i leave him out of it. After my appts i tell him how they went but as brief as possible. Also i dnt announce my fertile days, but i make sure we bd.

Because even a healthy couple with no fertility issues only has about a 25% chance of conceiving each month and it can take a healthy couple up to a year.. tracking your cycles and pin pointing your most fertile time will help any couple.....
