Stay away from fresh parsley, ginger, and artichokes. Have him eat more pineapple. I found a great book years ago: Wise Woman Herbal, For The Childbearing Years. It's got a lot of good advice on what to eat/drink to promote fertility, help during pregnancy, labor, post, and infant, and of course what to avoid. I'm actually about to send it to a gf of mine who has a family history of fertility issues.

Try using pre-seed as a lubricant, since it will not harm sperm, as other lubricants might. If your period is irregular, take a combination B6 and B12 vitamin. When I was trying to conceive, I did not take advil for anything during the month, except for during my period. I figured that since pregnant women are not supposed to take advil while pregnant, that it would also be wise to avoid it while trying to concieve. Good luck to you!

MOMS!! UNLESS YOU HAVE A PROBLEM CONCEIVING, THERE IS A FORMULA FOR GETTING PREGNANT ITS LIKE BAKING A CAKE. YOU MUST FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS! FIRST, YOUR PERIOD + 10 = OVULATION minus 2 = BABY! check this out! PERIOD (START ON DAY) 1 ( ENDS ON DAY) 5 or whatever that day is PLUS (10 DAYS) = (DAY 15) DAY 15 IS THE DAY YOU SHOULD BE OVULATING ON (DAY13, 14 15 ) YOU CAN (CONCEIVE) MAKE A BABY! 1+5= YOUR PERIOD +10 DAYS = DAY 15 OVULATING. TWO DAYS BEFORE 13, 14, 15 YOU COULD BECOME PREGNANT. REMEMBER THIS IS ONLY IF THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS WITH CONCEIVING. !!

LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!

Web MD has an ovulation calendar, it worked for me very fast, just input your last period and it will pinpoint the days you are most fertile. I had sex 1 day, 1 time the month I got pregnant!

And by the way I was just giving her some tips b/c when I had a miscarriage, I stopped eating and drinking caffeine and chocolate and bingo here came my little girl oh and also my doc recommended I didn't eat or drink these things. So maybe you should do research b4 talking out of your bum.

Sharyn - Actually yeah eating chocolate and drinking caffeine has been proven to make you have a miscarriage in the first three weeks of pregnancy so even b4 you know you are pregnant, I know b/c it happened to me for all you know you have probably been pregnant more than you even know.

omg dont drink caffeine or eat chocolate? Really?
i drink coffee and eat chocolate every other day and i got pregnant no worries ..... its a matter of in the right place at the right time ... after you have sex in the missionary .... lie still legs up for about 15mins - ... worked for me.

this is what i have read on net :

best position is missionary put a pillow under your bum and lie down for 30-60 minutes so the sperm dont dribble out also done use lube or give him oral as saliva and lube can reduce the number of sperm not a clue y as i said i have read it on the net

Well We Tried for What Seemed like Forever and What worked was Charting Really well . We Kept Missing ovulation after all the tests that said we were both Fine . My Dr Told me to Try Doing it 8 Days From when my Period Started and do it every other Night after that . We Got Pregnant the Next Month . Turned out I Ovulate Early Right after my Period ends not the 14 Days You seem to Read about .. Also Position that Helps is on your Back at the Corner of your Bed and then Stay in bed for at least 15 min or longer before getting up . I even put my legs up against the wall at the back of the bed lol Seems to Work ... Keeps it in there and gets the Fellas to Travel ... We did it and we have a Son who is Healthy and Happy . No Luck with a 2nd Child for us but we are Blessed with the one Child . Good Luck !!

I got pregnant on my wedding night (seriously) and so I didn't think conceiving was an issue for me. I was surprised when it didn't happen right away with my 2nd. It turned out that my husband was 'cooking' his sperm in a hot bath every night. When we first were married we just had a shower, no tub. 2nd time around we'd moved to a house that had a tub and he loves his hot bath. So...NO HOT BATHS for daddy until you're pregnant : )

Go buy an ovulation test kit, follow the instructions...its like a 95% chance of falling pregnant first go...they are in chemists...It tells you what days you are ovulation and there are 6 tests plus one pregnancy test and the ovulation test tell you when you are ovulating or not (you wee on a stick just like a prego test). Everyone i know that used one fell preggers on the first go! Good luck and don't stress

I have gotten pregnant 3 times on the first try by just relaxing and having sex close to every other day. Unfortunately I have miscarried twice, the most recent in March and been trying since April with no luck. Been stressing to much about it so I am going to relax this month and hope for the best. Good luck to you.

VITEX, google it!! Helps with ovulation. Get some ovulation strips (really cheap if your order online) and if you are really gung ho start temping. Go to trying to concieve forums

Also after intercourse don't go straight to the toilet, let the boys work their magic, stay laying on the bed for half an hour, legs slightly elevated. My mum gave me this tip, have a very open mother/daughter relationship :)

Natural family planning.

Also when you ovulate there is some clear discharge, my dr said some of the third world people he has worked with in the past called it "the white period" anyway the best time to concieve in when that dischrge is reeeeeealy strechy. So get some on your fingers and see how far apart you can spread your fingers before it breaks. He likened the consistacncy to egg whites. Like the other ladies said ,relax all three of my kids were concievd while we were on vacation LOL.

Natural family planning is also very effective as a birth control method.
