33 and ttc #3 advice appreciated

Postby JayJayD0115 » Sat May 07, 2011 12:43 pm

Hi everyone! Well this was our first month of ttc #3. My husband has been away for a long long time(long story). Anywho Af showed up today, what a bummer. But it's ok. I think the fact that. I'm not used to having sex on a regular basis, coupled with me douching like every other day and only doing bd on second of LH surge and the following morning. We used protection prior to LH surge as we are hoping for a boy. But also wondering if it matters in the grand scheme of things. I know they say douching is not good for you but I have also heard it can help you concieve. First two were unplanned and required not thinking lol now that we really want just one more seems ambit stressful. Please I'm all ears!

I've never heard that douching helps with conception, I'll have to google that one lol. Well I can tell you that the month I conceived my first, my daughter, we had just used Preseed that cycle so I'm a fan of that. Also if your scant on ewcm, Evening Primrose Oil can help with that. I'm also checking out the soy isoflaves thing but so far haven't gotten enough information on it to make a decision whether I'll try it or not. I think this month I might just do the EPO, Robitussin (again to help cm) and try baby aspirin. I will definitely be ordering the Preseed soon but I doubt I'll get it in time to use this month. It will have to wait until next month. I want to try and not get too carried away with too many products but I guess 2 or 3 ain't too crazy... so I tell myself lol.

One thing I wish I still had my Clearblue easy Fertility Monitor, I loved that thing but I sold it after I got my BFP with dd. Dh made me promise not to run out right away and buy another one. Makes sense because I already pretty much know when I O anyways. But still - I like seeing that little smiley egg symbol appear lol. Good luck and I'd def get the Preseed, it works great!

Have u heard I'd pineapple juice or grapefruit juice actually helps with implantation the info I have gotten online seems sketchy? I'm wondering if I can get the pre seed at walgreens as I know I won't have enough time to order it and have it here? Well let me know if u find and thing and good luck to you!

Douching is bad for you. It disrupts your natural secreations and can increase your risk of infection.

As far as it being helpful for conception? I can't imagine that it would. One of the reason that your body produces the EWCM is to aid the motility of sperm... and it's percisley why preseed was invented and why people take things like cough syrup or drink green tea to increase the production of it.

I know the date on the topic is old but as soon as i read it I felt it needed to be addressed. I have read / heard that it acctually use to be common practice for prositutes to douch in hopes they would AVOID conception. Not that there is really much scientific basis in that but I can understand the idea. Remove the fluids. If your TTC removing the fluids would be the last thing you want to do... and if you happen to have an infection, douching isnt your answer... antibiotics and probiotics probably are...
