Trying for baby at 37

I was just wondering if any of you can give me tips for trying to get
pregnant at 37 with irregular cycles. I will have a cycle at 2,3,4 weeks, depending on the month, which makes it very difficult to pin point when I am ovulating, I am 37 my husband 39, we have no children and are both so ready to be parents, but have had no luck,, any tips will be great,, Thanks!

If you have sex every 2-3 days it will make sure to catch any egg (which lasts about 24 hours) because sperm is viable for up to 72 hours. Because you have an irregular cycle, you should make sure you are ovulating. There are home test kits for that. Also you should talk to your doctor about why you have irregular periods if you haven't done so yet.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the info. I had miscarriage twice and I'm planning for this year but my period is irregular.

My best advice is use an ovulation predictor kit. You can get them at any pharmacy. You pee on it and when it tells you you are ovulating you're good to go. FYI if that works for you, you're more likely to have a boy b/c boy sperm swim faster than the girl they'll reach the egg first.

I used the kit with both pregnancies and got pregnant right away with both. Good luck to you!

Thanks so much I just started using the ovulation kits and I was wondering whether or not it would help me. I am about to turn 35 and have been trying for months still not pregnant but you give me hope.
