My husband and I are planning on having another baby (starting at the end of this month), and I am on birth control (evra patch). Just looking for tips to get pregnant as quickly as possible. We are really looking forward to expanding our family and want to get pregnant quick.



Thanks for any advice.

Quoting Amanda:

Make sure you are already taking your prenatal vitamin and eating healhty. Also, I was told to wait until I was off of birth control for 1 month and had a period before trying. I got pregnant the first month I tried with twins.



Hey Amanda,



Just wanted to let yo know that the exact same thing happened to me. The only difference is that I went of the pill, had a period that month then got pregnant the next with Twins as well. I never expected it to happen so quickly concidering I had been on the pill for 12 years straight. One thing that I did is a 12 day cleanse as soon as I went off of the pill to help my body get rid of all of the chemicals, it seemed to have worked for me. It wasn't the first time I had done the cleanse though, I try to do it twice a year.

Don't "try"!  If you make it a scheduled thing you will be thinking too hard about it, and it will take the fun out of it!  Just relax and enjoy!  And as Jennifer says, sex every second day is a good option.....it won't "deplete the source"  hahaha

My husband and I are currently trying again after a miscarriage in December. This will be our second child. I don't want to stress myself out over it because that can prevent you from getting pregnant. We are relaxing and having fun with baby making. I have always read that sex every other day during your furtile time improves your chances and a lot of people have told me that morning sex is what got them pregnant. We follow that advice and my last 2 pregnancies each happened with two months of trying. Stop using the patch and when you start trying relax and have fun with it! Good luck!
