First time trying
h_a_c14 posted:
My husband and I are fairly new at trying to conceive. Last month was our first time trying, no luck, however' the odds were against us because I was on my period. We currently live in different states due to our occupations but we will be seeing each other this month during three of my high fertility days according to the WEB MD ovulation calculator. Are there any extra pieces of advice or insight to how accurate this calculator is. We both truly want to conceive so any tips are welcomed!!!!!!!!!
