We have been trying for baby 1 for over 7 years. We are now getting more serious and the clock is ticking. Can't give an answer for finding the perfect time to conceive as we can't seem to find it. Let the testing begin huh!

First time round took us 2 years and this time round we have been trying for 4 months so far.
Tried (in no particular order):
Ovulation predictor tests (mostly just ebay cheapies)
bicylce legs (haha)
SMEP (sperm meets egg program: essentially shagging every second day then every daywhen you think youre ovulating)
All a bit exhausting really!!!
Good luck ladies

We have been trying for months now, unfortunately I just had a miscarriage a few weeks ago and then had to have a D and C. I was using this little dish that you spit in and try to read how much oestrogen is present but it is very hard to read. I would love something more accurate.

The 14th day of the cycle is always a good time to have an early night!!

One year it has been,
Not a fairytale or dream.
Mucus and temperature charts,
That is where I start.

We've been trying to concieve for 4 years since our first "accidental" pregnancy ended in MC. 5 M/C later, I have bloods done 4-5 times a cycle to pinpoint ovulation.

Three years next month, that'll be two weeks after having Laproscopy surgery for Endometriosis so my best ovulation conductor at the moment is a Fertility Clinic.

15 months and are just starting to explore fertility issues. I used to use FR OPKs but switched to clearblue digital as they take the guess work out of it, in turn making me less anxious. I have been using them now for 4 months & they've detected my LH surge every month

It took 8 months for me to conceive my first child and I found the best way to pinpoint the best time for conception is to chart my cycle, listen to my body and leave the rest to mother nature.
Above all relax and enjoy the journey!

Have been TTC for baby number one for 4 years. 2 m/c. I chart with Fertility Friend, use Maybe Baby have tried other OPKs and just go at it like rabbits some months & hope for the best.

having just lost our little one after almost 3 years of trying, I'll be using the clear blue ovulation test next month.

I have been trying to get pregnant for quite a number of years so this fertility package would hopefully help me to concieve

Been trying for 8 months to conceive child number 2. There's been tears, fears, cheers and more tears... I tend to guess when I'm ovulating based on mood and mucus (TMI sorry!) but clearly this method isn't working!
