    Okay so this month we are on our 2nd month TTC and it will be my first 'proper' month after stopping the pill and after first period. We are going to DTD every other day and I may use opk's around time I may be o'ving just to double check! What I want to know is the food and drink that will help with TTC and/or helping produce sperm friendly CM. I dont want to use pre seed etc just yet.

    I believe something that helps is grapefruit juice.....all other suggestions welcome NOW!! :D

    i just read sex in mornings better and only tilt your hips as too much can make spermiesx go wrong way!

    and every other day is same as us, im even making him do morning and night and trying doggy/missionary just incase so should have all covered, also im more relaxed not checking cervix o dwelling on symptom not having a 2ww just going to bd all through month til i get told having sticky bean

    nothing does any harm thats for sure, but if you have regular cycles and things and plenty cm i wouldnt want to mess with bodies.

    i might try opks and tempting next month if nothing happens this month.

    Aww GL at the dentist! I wish I had time on a morning as that is when I prefer but in the week it is just a nightmare! Also I would be worried of all the swimmers coming out furing the day!! :D I would like to give morning a try and see if that does help though.

    See I think I would struggle to use these as I cant even use tampons and I also have had probs with smears and had to have cells removed and I dont fancy messing around up there incase I make my cervix bleed and that!

    i dont, to be honest (i seen this on a fertility film)
    when women get impreginated using sperm at a clinic then have to lie there 10 minutes and thats it... so to be honest have sex have cuddle for 10 mins then go and wipe.... if its meant to be they would go swimming

    LOL.. i've half joked about using a turkey baster to make sure sperm get straight into cervix... i was joking but then had a silly thought thinking well if it makes a baby quicker.... but then i snapped back out of it thinking thats going a little far lol
