What did you do?

Postby sttcx » Sat Jul 28, 2018 11:51 pm

After the 11th month being unsuccessful, I need to try something new.. I’ve done the deed every day of the week before, every other day of the week, I’ve tried smep.. I’ve used preseed, I’ve used soy, I’ve used conceive plus before, me and the other half both take vitamins, my diet couldn’t be any better and we are both a healthy weight.. what can I try next to help me conceive? What did you do the month you got your bfp?

Hi sttcx, this was approx month 22 of TTC and I'm on my 3rd BFP (I'm hoping this one sticks - the other 2 ended at 5 weeks).
I only had luck with the BFPs once I started taking 75mg Aspirin daily and cough syrup (must only contain guaifenesin).
I have a blood clotting disorder, so probably why the 75mg Aspirin worked. Be careful with this one though as I have sticky blood but I don't know your situation.
Guaifenesin is meant to help loosen CM - not sure this had anything to do with it, but didn't want to abandon a winning formula.
I also made sure to not use the loo and place a cushion under my bum after BDing for at least 30mins.
I hope this helps and good luck!

I’m sorry to hear the other two only lasted 5 weeks! Praying this one sticks for you! I am definitely going to try that this month! Thankyou for getting back to me! Who knew TTC would be this hard! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy!

No worries - for me I started taking the Aspirin once my AF finished (In England the low dose tablets are 75mg tablets and in US they come as 81mg tablets).
The cough syrup (Guaifenesin) I started taking once I got a positive OPK three times a day (just take the dose stated on the bottle).
Let me know if you have any luck!

P.S. Because I have a clotting condition, I carried on taking the Aspirin once I got my BFP (I have to take it until late in pregnancy).
If you don't have a clotting condition I guess maybe you stop once you get your BFP or AF.
The cough syrup you only take for 3 days from positive OPK.

Have a google of Aspirin and TTC - a lot comes up!!

Think I might have to hold off on this.. my other half just got his test results back and they weren’t good at all so doubt it’s going to work, he has to do the test again to be sure then we are being referred to a fertility doctor, devastated :-(

Really sorry to hear that! I hope it was a dodgy test and everything is OK for the next one. x
