Do any of your husbands take multivitamins to help with fertility?

I used opks and bd'd everyday for three days after getting a positive. I had my husband eating foods that contained zinc. He loves nuts so he just ate a serving full everyday. Idk if that did anything, I also had him release old spermies every two or three with or without me(TMI) sorry. I did read that was good, especially with him being in the military, he was last gone for 8 months. So he might have been backed up with unsuitable sperm, considering it takes them only two weeks to mature. Idk if that helped. Good Luck!

Hi All! I am new to the boards as well. I've been posting in the Ovulation board with questions about OPKs but I thought I'd say hi to y'all too! I am 27 and DH is 37 and we are TTC for the first time! We were married in May of last year and boy are we ready!! This is the 3rd cycle we are TTC and I am just now using OPKs. The strangest thing - I was super regular for as long as I can remember. I've been off BC for at least 5 years, we just used other forms of protection. But anyway - the strange thing is as soon as we "decide to get pregnant" my cycles went haywire! 35 days one cycle, 32 another, 29 another, back to 32. Before it was 28 to a "T"! Ugh.

Dina, congrats on the BFP!!! Very exciting! Just to let you know where we are at in the cycle - I've had positive OPKs yesterday and today (CD 16 and 17). We've BD'd CD 13, 15 and will again tonight and hopefully again tomorrow and Friday before I head out of town for a week for a conference. I am hoping this conference helps me get through the TWW with ease since I will not be able to spend hours online reading BFP stories! Baby dust to you all! Good luck!

Good luck SarahTTC1. Let us know how testing goes! I am on CD 11 just waiting to ovulate and have been having some light cramping which leads me to believe O is on the way :)

Hi ladies
I am super new to this! I am 26 my DH is 35 second month TTC after a chemical pregnancy 31 May 2013. My cycles are around 28 days but I have only had two after my mirena was taken out 14 Feb/13. It took me six weeks to get a period. I am currently CD17 only had the chance to BD CD13 :( i hate that my husband works out of town but it was also hard to get in the mood after the mc. And I dropped the ball on my opks this month but no sign of any egg white cm... Beginning to wonder if I have O'd??

HI Ladies! I was new not too long ago as well. This is the first cycle I am using this forum as a crutch. So far I love reading everyone's progress, symptoms and their story too! PinUp - do you temp? I JUST started temping (I am 6/7 dpo) and plan to temp all next month if this month is not successful. This cycle we BD'd on CD 13, 15, and 17 and I think I O'd on the 17th (possibly the 16th in the evening). I only used OPKs this month so with the temping I am hoping not only will I be able to see when I O but it would be great to see how my temp changes during the LP! Anyway- welcome! If you had to put a guess on O day, where would you be now? What dpo?

Expectantdaze - welcome to you too! Are you using any OPKs or temping?
