Has anyone got any tips that will help us get pregnant?

My husband and I have been trying for a baby for just over a year now. I have PCOS so we are expecting it to take a little longer but just wondered if any of you had any ideas as to what would help us get pregnant or anything you think we should be avoiding whilst trying to conceive.

Thanks in advance 😊

  • Hi if I am honest I know nothing about PCOS but Me and partner for 5 years before I had a miscarriage last year 😥 After the miscarriage I was determined to get pregnant again very quickly. I would definitely recommend clearblue ouvlation tests, thought I was ouvlating day 13-15 I was so wrong didn't ovulate until day 19. Also when partner went to doctor he said that the sperm needs time to regenerate so us doing it 2-3 times a day from day 10 of cycle wasn't going to work as when ouvlation day comes round sperm wouldn't be at its best, he said to do it every other day. Also this sounds super gross but I really think it worked for me when we knew I was ouvlating we would do it last thing at night and instead of me standing up and 'cleaning up' I just cleaned up sperm that was already on outside and stayed lying down-it really is gross. After miscarriage I had a normal period then used ouvlation tests and that same month fell again (currently 39 weeks and 5 days). Hope this helps xx

  • Hi x

    Have you tried complementary therapies such as Reflexology? It might need a few sessions but it might help :)

    Good luck xx

  • Acupuncture is very good!

  • Hi there, well good luck for a start. I don't know anything about PCOS either. Got a few tips though - get fit, quit smoking if you smoke, be in the healthy weight category BMI if you can, don't drink alcohol when trying to conceive (either of you!), take a multi vitamin and a high dose of vitamin D (Google this...!) - I was taking 4000 IU (but for a totally separate reason - for immune system over winter) but I think this really, really helped us. Have a healthy diet. Make sure and take folic acid prior to getting pregnant too. As Rebecca says too, don't stand up too soon (!)...I think it's mainly about being as fit and healthy as you can be - being in the best shape you can be and adapting the above advice to suit you.

    Good luck xx
