      Make $50 cash! We need one captain for each birth month forum.  This is a 100% volunteer position, where you'll help to manage the birth month forum you're assigned.  That means reporting any forms of abuse to the staff, pinning/unpinning threads, doing whatever you want to keep the group having fun!  You will be the lead for that group.   If you are level-headed, outgoing, and want to have some fun running a group, please PM "BMC" and let her know you're interested!  If you are able to recruit 100 active members to your group, we'll send you a $50 bill!  Only rule is that the members must be legitimate and active.  You'll also be eligible for helping to review special products (and you get to keep the product!).  Please PM us for more details.

Tips for getting pregnant fast

1 post in this topic

When you're ready to get pregnant, you can't wait! Your window of opportunity is slim, and if you miss it, you'll have to wait another month. We know how frustrating it can be, however you're not alone. Here are some tips on helping you get pregnant quicker...

  1. A good rule of thumb is to meeting with your doctor to review your history, any medication you're on, etc. A complete gynecological exam is always a good first start. Get a full and complete blood panel as well. 
  2. Get off birth control! It may take a cycle or two being off birth control before your regular cycle returns.
  3. Remove an IUD if you have one. Removing an IUD should allow your cycle to return immediately.
  4. If you're on Depo-Provera, talk to your doctor on the best approach for weaning yourself off.
  5. Find out when you ovulate. Check out the fertility charting section of the forum for more details. This will definitely help increases your chances of getting pregnant. It can take a few months to identify the pattern, however it will be well worth the wait! Fertility charting includes tracking your basal body temperature and cervix mucus.
  6. If you detect any spotting or bleeding, call your doctor right away. Sometimes it's normal, but always best to be safe.
  7. Use an ovulation predictor kit. Check your local drug store or online for a kit, they shouldn't cost more than $30. We've heard very good success with these kits! They are convenient and easy to use, and generally dramatically increase your odds of getting pregnant. It's a good idea to use this in conjunction with your fertility charting.
  8. You can also try a fertility monitor. Again, check your local drug store or online. They can be rather pricey, though they do help predict the best time to have sex.
  9. Having sex before ovulating helps increase your chances of getting pregnant as well. 
  10. Have sex daily, or every other day. Don't worry about having an orgasm, this is about making a baby. It's normal for sex when trying to conceive, not to be the funnest thing to do. 
  11. Don't use lube (if you can help it). If you need lube, then be sure to buy one that is safe for baby making. Pre-Seed is a good one to get. 
  12. If you smoke or drink, quit. This goes for the men too!
  13. Limit your caffeine intake (cut it out entirely if possible). Again, this goes for men as well.
  14. Eat healthy, and try to stay away from fast food. If you like seafood, then stay away from fish which are high in mercury, such as tuna, shark, swordfish, etc. Shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock, and catfish are good.
  15. Relax, this should be somewhat fun. :) Don't take the task too seriously, and please remember, good things come to those who wait (or are patient). 

Good luck! Let us know how things are going.
