    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    First time trying

    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!!!!!!!!!
