I feel like I honestly don't know how to get pregnant anymore!!! I got pregnant w/my daughter at the age of 19 not meaning that I have been remarried for almost 2 yrs we have been kind of trying ever since we got married in nov of 2009...byu kind of trying I mean using no means of protection at all..I haven't been on the pill in over 4 years..just hated the way that they made me feel...I try to go by my body...but my cycles vary each month sometimes they are 17 days, 22-28, but they mainly vary between 23-27..but it's hard to tell..I look at several diff ovulation calendars and try to make sure we try to conceive on those days..but lots of times we end up only tryin 2-3x per month, so thinking maybe that could be our problem?? We both want to conceive very badly and feel so frustrated that it hasn't happened before now...any suggestions for us???

Well, if you want to have a baby and are only "trying" 2-3 times a month, chances are not good. You should chart your temps and find out the days you ovulate that way. Then, make sure to up the bd'ing around that time. A healthy couple has a 25% chancce of conceiving each month...and that is doing it more than 2-3 times a month.

I think the best rule of thumb is to have sex every other day AKA as much as possible :) Not just when you think you might be ovulating
