Hi girls.... many of ye will know we are 6months TTC and was very upset last week when AF came, have been charting but couldnt decide whether to stop or not. Anyway thought id pay my doc a visit just for her advice and opinion. Well she said I have done great work with the charting but as my cycles are regular I should give up and just go with CM and dtd everysecond night or so around OV. She was gas.... basically she told me to get myself to a sex shop, get a vibrator, some blue movies, lingerie have a few glasses of wine... light some candles and set the mood and basically be as relaxed as possible. She said Saturday morning is not for shopping... get hubby to bring you breakfast in bed and ...... she reckons the more relaxed you are and the more you enjow it the more chance you are of getting pregnant. I must say it was the most biazare conversation ive ever had with a doctor but I think she prob has a point. At the mo my sex life is like a milliatary operation. Im going to do my very best to just relax and go with the flow. She told me to come back in June if nothing is happening and she will send me for tests. So I have been perscribed four months of acting like a wanton hussy which beats the hell out of taking temps every morning and peeing on sticks. Might as well give it a go its as good as any other advice ive gotten. So what do ye think of that???? its kind of the realx and it will happen advise with a twist.

Sally i totally agree with doc has advised, relax and chill with your hubbie and take things as they come. Dont think i would be into the blue movies :eek but eh each to their own. Enjoy the babydancing though for the next couple of months :o0 :o0 :o0

Sure when I told my doctor in January we were ttc,I got really :-8 he said relax and enjoy it don't go out and buy those kits(already had an ovulation one but never used it)you will only get obsessed,if nothing happens between 6months to 1year then go for tests. He also said not to wipe or wash myself after sex as the sperm with just swim to Dublin Bay :-8 :-8 also put a pillow under my bum to angle my pelvis..I was so mortified but obviously something worked. She got right down to it didnt she,porno's and vibrators :o0 -your DH will be walking around with a permanant smile on his face!

Hi Sally, Just want to wish you all the very best. I am sure she knows what she's talking about. I mentioned in another post, I went to Anne Summers and bought a toy, I really think it helped us this month. It just made everythign a bit more exciting for him, and I suppose me too. Trust me I thought I'd never see the day where I would buy something like that. I have heard on so many other boards where women threw away their charts etc... went on a holiday and hey presto!!! If you could arrange a week in the canaries or something around ov time or even go away for a night or two to a hotel even an hour away. Good luck :wv

Thats great Sally, might take that advise myself if AF arrives this month. It can easily become like a military operation :o0 Hopefully you won't be needing to return in june :wv
