Hi! I am new to this community and wanted to introduce myself. I have been married for almost 6 months and we are trying to conceive. We have been trying since March and so far nothing. I know it won't happen overnight but any suggestions would help. Should I be using ovulation strips or something similar? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

After 6 months of trying you should seek advise from your GYN. There are a lot of tips like charting as well as blood work testing for hormones that can help your chances instead of waiting another 6 months. I made the mistake of waiting and now I am 36. I finally talked to my dr at the age of 33, find out I did have a thyroid disease which then ended up needing surgery, radiation and medication. In between all of the testing I had no choice but to wait and now we are trying again. Don't wait too long.
