Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

In another recent thread, there was a discussion of how long you should wait to get up ater sex since laying there may help you get pregnant faster. I thought that I would start this thread so that we can post the funny things and not so weird things people have said that will help someone get pregnant faster.

For instance, I was told last night that if I go to the chiropractor for an adjustment, I will probably get pregnant faster. Please list anything that you've heard or done while TTC. You know what....I'll probably try even the craziest things!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/round.gif">

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

I have read in a book on how to concieve boys, that you should get the male to drink some caffine about 1 hr before intercourse.(Coca-cola or Coffee) Its suppose to give the little guys some extra pep, especially the male sperm, then perform intercourse using the doggie style position as this is suppose to help the sperm get deposited much deeper.<p>[This message has been edited by moderator2 (edited 10-21-2002).]

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

Ok this one is really off the wall but for some reason it worked and I have my youngest son to show for it.
We had been trying for about three years and were even going through infertility treatments. Well I like to try some weird things at times. I happened to be in a local store when I came across these little figures that came with scented oil. One was called The Mother and the other The Goddess. I got those two and hung one in the bathroom and one above our bed. I hung the Goddess one above our bed. I put the oil in the little bowl at its feet every couple of days. Now when I got it hubby was out of town and when he returned home we continued our efforts to conceive. Low and behold two weeks after he got home we found out we were expecting. I had only had the Goddess hanging above our bed at that time for three weeks.
Now that we are trying again I got new one(lost the other) and it is now above our bed.....

TCB0609,
The person that told you that about getting an adjustment is correct! I work for a Chiropractor and they do so much more than just fix back aches! So go see your DC! LOL

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

Hi,

I just found that lying down after sex was good and really willing those little guys to do their jobs!!

However this is my first pregnancy so who knows if what I did was especially helpful. I do think I fell pregnant quite quickly though having been on the pill for 15 years!!!

Good luck with the Goddess Blastoff9600!!

xx

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

My friend swears that taking Robotussin helps. Something about thinning out the CM. Doesn't sound safe to me to be taking medicine unnecessarily, but she says her doctor OK'd it.

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

Curiouschick,that is actually very true. Many,many infertility specialist will tell thier patients aobut this. Also many,many infertility sites and books mention this.

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

Here is a excellent one. I have read and heard (Theres a entire website dedicated to it) that real raw egg whites can be a excellent substitute for CM if you are having trouble producing good quality CM. Most books and sites tell you that the optimal time to concieve is when your CM turns to the consistency of raw egg whites. But alot of women dont have CM like this, so this is what you do.

Take 1 raw egg out the fridge and let it sit on the table for 1 hour to achieve room temp. Then crack the egg and seperate the whites from the yolk. The easiest way to insert the whites into the vagina is by using a yeast infection cream applicator you would get out of a box of monistat 7 or something. Funnel the eggs whites into it and insert them right before you have intercourse. Sorry I dont have a link the the website, but there were posts after posts from women saying this help them conceive after YEARS of not being able to. They tried it one time and BOOM, baby city. Seeing as CM is very important to help the sperm get to where they need to go, I would say its worth a try. Its also excellent because of its high protein content. <IMG SRC="http://smilies.networkessence.net/s/otn/funny/tdo13.gif">

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

I wish I would have known about this website before I got pregnant being that it too me 3 1/2 years. I would have tried all of these methods.

Re: Things that help you get pregnant faster!!

Yes but what happens to that egg white after the shindig is over? I'd feel very strange being egg inside of me.. hopefully there wouldnt be any sort of rotten egg stench to come along being as the yolk was not apart of it. Sorry, this isnt an addition to things ive heard, but i just thought that was so strange.
