Default Question for those TTCs (Trying to Conceive)

Me and my hubby are trying to get pregnant. I had irregular periods and my OB has given me the pill to correct it. I know I'm being stubborn coz I stopped it and just let nature take its course. However, I'm currently taking Folic Acid so as to prepare myself prior to getting pregnant. What other preparations do you take in preparing for pregnancy? Do you know any methods that could boost conception?

I'm also trying to conceive for almost a year already. Unfortunately, seeing the negative sign on my PTs have become a regular occurence. I have PCOS and that's the reason why I am having irregular menstruation. My OB prescribed me this med called Metformin and I couldn't handle the effects- dizziness, sleepiness, fatigue and with a combined appetite of 2 guys LOL! 1 week of taking it and I'm done. I just take my pills and that's it. Folic acid is also good, I might start taking that one. My 2 cents: Religiously take the meds your OB has given you... But... My mom told me that if I just had the strength and discipline to take Metformin perhaps I'm pregnant by now. I'm not sure though if I could last even a month of taking Metformin. The experience is like riding a ship, running a 42k, a 2-week fasting, and drinking booze rolled into one. LOL!

I suggest you continue following your OB's advice Abana. It will be nice if it will just happen though

We're on the same boat Abana. 3 months and still no baby!! But we're taking it slowly and surely. I have a regular monthly period but the thing is we can't hit my ovulation days due to my work shifting. I heard grapejuice and honey could boost potency. I've been regularly drinking grapejuice for a month now.

G'day everyone. I'm also a TTC and soo extremely hopeful that we'll have a daughter. My 2 sons are equally excited to have a little sissy in the family.
I was advised that if we wanna have a girl then we shouldn't be pushing it too hard. While for couples wanting a boy, they should push waaay too hard. We're doing it the lighter way coz we wanna have a girl this time.... But I'm guilty of the latter sometimes.

I am not sure if it is true. But one of my friends said doing the rights on a certain period of time (I think it's like the 2nd week after your period) will give you a boy... and just right after your period will give you a girl

Ditto! I plead guilty too Gaetana!

Really? Never heard of that, but will definitely try!
Who knows? I might be shouting "POSITIVE" with a lot of positivity next month!
