When TTC do you and your SO follow (or try to follow) a BD schedule? What schedule were you using the month you conceived? Which schedules didnt work for yall? We have been trying to not stress about ttc, not charting, not using opks, and hoping nature would just take its course but now Im thinking maybe we should try using opks and a schedule or something because this way isnt working yet :(



edit: poll is supposed to say "yes we did during the month we conceived" and "no we did not during the month we conceived"

Yes we schedule sex; only because DH has a issues with a low sperm count and low sperm motility. We BD every other day.. If DH didn't have the infertility issues and if we didn't have to do fertility treatments I wouldn't schedule sex...

We tried for 3 years. FINALLY got pregnant when I got to the point that I just gave up and decided we would be childless. I use to get PISSED at people and throw fits if someone told me "just don't try", but then it ended up working for us.

Nope. I didn't even think I got a period when I conceived this time around. I bled and bled after a miscarriage then didn't have a period for weeks on end. Turned out I was most definitely pregnant and SO and I only had sex a few times because we were scared of getting pregnant again.

Yes and no. We had sex whenever we wanted, but I still made sure to have sex on the days I was ovulating.



I used OPKs for two months prior to the month I conceived. My periods have always been regular and my OPKs were positive the exact same both those months. The month we actually conceived, though, I didn't use any. I just kinda guesstimated and had sex based on that, lol.

Basically it went like this "Honey, you know how we talked about wanting another baby?? Well, I'm pretty positive I'm ovulating..." *knock boots* aaaand a few weeks later a BFP :)
