wow so your chances to have a bfp sound really great!! i only started epo this month and oh started his multivit this month so i'm hoping we will have some luck

i have not seen any change in cm since starting epo and i take 2000mg a day and i drink lost of water. but then again its still a whole week till i o so the cm should still increase right?? the only side effect i have is a headache from hell after i've taken the epo!

Gah! I really really hope so! I'm due to test on Valentine's Day if AF doesn't show on the 13th. You should definitely notice some improvement as you get closer to ovulation, I usually get 3 or 4 days of lots of ewcm. I love what EPO has done for my cm and I'll keep taking it if I don't get my bfp next week. Best of luck to you!!

[/QUOTE]you should do about 2000mg of epo. this is my first month so i have yet to see changes in my cm. i'm still very dry but then also its still a weeeeeek till o... argh!! dh does not have to take extra ZINC. just normal 30mg a day, which all men should actually take. maybe a good multivitamin will sit better with him as that promotes over all healt?!

wel i'm holding thumbs that the epo will do the trick for us this month!! i mean we will be giving those spermies all they desire.. nice fertile cm to live in [/QUOTE]

Thanks for the dosage info! I bought the 500mg, so I guess I will try to take 2 for 2xs a day!

Hmm... DH's multi only has 15mg Zinc and when I bought the smallest size supplement I could find (50mg) he was not having it. His multi does have Selenium and Folic Acid too, but I might look for a better multi with more Zinc.

hi, yes the epo you should at least take 1500mg but 2000 is better! wel my oh's multivit only has 5mg zinc in... but also selenium and 400mg of folic acid! not happy with the dosage of zinc but he is not a fan of taking anything more than the multivit either! and the bad this for me is my oh has a highly stressfull job so i think he kills most of his spermies by just simply stressing too much... wel, hoping the epo and multivit wil create a good enviroment for the sperm, or the little there might be.

wel, i just feel its either my cm or his spermies thats the problem bcoz other than that we are very healthy and take all the right supplements and bd right times.

so holding thumbs!!! only 6 more days or less. when do you guys bd? every day or every other?

AF just ended and we dtd tonight. We plan to at least every other night until I'm going to guess 2/10. I'm estimating OV to be 2/13 or 2/14. And afterwards I still plan to DTD every other day (just in case).

I've started doing the OPKs since yesterday morning. This time I'm determined to OPK test every day at least once until I get a close to positive. I worry last cycle I might have thought I OV and had to stop the day after I thought I OV (DH got terribly sick). I bought the cheaper Target OPKs so I can test more frequently.

wel my o is around the same time as yours. i plan to start opk's from friday till tuesday and longer if i do not get a positive. my cm is still very milky so i assume i will o on time this month! my cycles are pretty regular so i'm just thinking to bd every 2nd day also. just to have oh accumulate some spermies. i think we'll bd tonight, friday, sunday and tuesday. obviously also depending on when i get a positive opk!

but you are covering your bases nicely so i'm really excited that this will be our month!!! xx

Awesome!

We dtd sat, Sunday, yesterday. I'm really hoping this is our month! We've been ntnp for 18 months now and have decided to try actively now.

I've just received preseed today so will use it tonight, can't hurt!

My cm doesn't seem fertile, quite dry and sticky so I'm not sure I've ov yet.

Keep us posted on your opks! Which ones do you use?
