What can I do to help myself get pregnant?
Topic: What can I do to help myself get pregnant?
October 19, 2019 / By Elpalet Question:
My husband and I have been TTC for over a year now. I finally went to see my ob/gyn (a prior agreement with the hubby) and she has diagnosed me with PCOS and higher then normal testosterone.
I am on Metformin 500 mg once a day for those two. I am also taking Chantix to quit smoking (no interaction with Metformin) since i was also diagnosed with dysplasia. Have a Colpscopy (sp?) in August.
I am also taking:
1000 mg Flaxseed Oil
1000 mcg Biotin
And One-Source Prenatal pill that has 4800 IU of Vitamin A, 120 mg of Vitamin C, 400 IU of Vitamin D, 30 IU Vitamin E, 1.84 mg of Thiamin, 2 mg of riboflavin, 20 mg of niacin, 20 mg of vitamin b6, 800 mcg of folic acid, 12 mcg of vitamin b12, 300 mg of calcium, 28 mg of iron, 150 mcg of iodine, 25 mg of zinc, and 2 mg of copper.
I also take an extra 400 mcg of Folic Acid.
Everything listed here I take once a day Except Chantix which requires 1mg twice a day.
I don't eat alot and find that if I force myself to eat. I end up getting sick and have stomach pains with the feeling that I'm going to explode.
What else can I do? I have heard of Primrose but not sure what it is and what it does and if it will react with metformin or chantix...
Any help would be appreciated...
Sorry I should have added the I chart my BBT and check my CM.
Besides having intercourse and the appropriate time is there anything else I can do..
Thanks Smart a** - you know who i mean.
HONEST AND HELPFUL answers only!
And my husband has a son already..

It sounds like you are taking all the necessary steps to better your chances. Good for you!
Primrose Oil is an Omega Fatty Acid, and will help increase the quantity of your cervical mucus. The Flax-seed Oil will have a similar effect. But if you decide to take the primrose, read up on the directions. You should take it starting the very first day of your period and stop once you've ovulated. Primrose Oil is known to cause cervical contractions and may prevent an embryo from implanting properly.
Good Luck to you!

Of course, most obstetricians will recommend that you try any and all food or all natural options before using a medication, but there is a few safe medications for constipation during pregnancy.
First, try adding extra fiber into your diet (metamucil, or fibercon) and plenty of fruit, vegetables, and beans. Be sure to stay hydrated and drink about 3 quarts of fluid a day (mostly water, since coffee, tea, and soda have constipating effects). If changing your diet fails, try a stool softener such as Colace. If you still have no relief after trying all your options, talk to your OB about using some Milk of Magnesia. This is to be used as a last resort due to the chance of dependency upon the medication after using it. So please exhaust all lifestyle/diet changes before taking anything over-the-counter. And always consult your doctor for any problems you are having, they are there to help you and keep you and your baby healthy.
I know constipation can be extremely frustrating and I also suffered in the earlier weeks of my pregnancy. What really helped me was drinking lots of extra water and adding tons of vegetables. The vegetables really did make a huge difference.

It's crazy...here you are, trying your hardest to get pregnant..and then on Yahoo answers, you see 13 year olds posting questions about how they became pregnant, whether they should or should not have the baby, and how they're so scared because their parents are going to find out and the kicker is...they weren't even trying to get pregnant in the first place!
It's almost a joke, really. Just as a little story, My husband and I tried to conceive for a while year. Last year around Thanksgiving time, it finally happened. I think it wasn't happening for a whole year because I was stressing so much over it. I kept thinking about the baby. I kept counting days, researching my ovulation charts, reading about all kinds of crazy methods to conceive a child. I had baby on the brain. Finally in November last year, I gave up. I had a move to think about. I had to pack things, clothes, furniture...had to get an apartment, start paying new bills with my husband, make a road trip to our new state..things were hectic and I forgot about baby-making, and somewhere around that time, it happened. I think when you are anticipating a child, your body isn't going to respond only because of how the stress hormones are high even though you don't know it. And this can even put your cycle off. It sucks, really. I have some really helpful sites for you though..you should check them out:

Good luck..I know it's so freakin frustrating...but it will happen. Like I said, we tried for a year..now I'm 37 weeks and almost ready to say Hello to my own little one. I do wish you the best.

Beyond all of that make sure your diet is healthy and stay active [for the love of Zeus don't smoke]. Also, see a fertility specialist - it might not be you ... but him.
The PCOS can make things a lot more difficult depending on the severity of the cysts and the time. Again, the fertility specialist is the way to go.

About half way in between getting off your period and getting your period, have alot of sex. That is the peak time when you should get pregnant.

While slim, there is no pure guarantee of her not being pregnant since the task has already been done. Please keep in mind that, regardless of which one of you goes to the pharmacy, make sure you speak to the pharmacist and let them know that she is currently on birth control (with its name if possible) and whether or not she takes her birth control regularly as directed.
There are some hormones in Plan B type pills that can interact with other medications.
