    So slowly rule out bit by bit.
    You know when you ovulate based on your BBT so you can schedule for the best chances.
    Then look into fertilisation and implantation whether got any issues there.
    I think step by step, logically you can try to tackle this!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Yukki: opk is a stick to test for LH surge. If its high LH n thr opk stick is positive means you will ovulate betweem 12 to 36 hours later. So usually we will BD either 12hrs after opk positive, or the night when you got opk positive then either for consec three nights or alternate days (depend on yourself).. most ladies here bd alternate days acc to their traditional chinese medicine n i bd 3 consec days acc to my traditional chinese medicine.

    I wld suggest if you r very deligent in your traditional chinese medicine, maybe you want change another traditional chinese medicine to try out. Ladies here mostly go to dr wu li ping n i myself is with dr tan kian seng.

    N lastly maybr you want drag your hunby for seman analysis. N to pu him as well to increase his army.

    Hi yukki! Firstly.. you still young! Like what the rest have said... Fertilisation and implantation are both areas that we have no control and visibility.. I'm an ivf mtb... Not afraid to share.. I went thru hell.. first step is to do hsg test (you can Google this) to make sure your hubby's sperms are not shooting into a wall. traditional chinese medicine will not be able to tell if you have clear or blocked tubes. Neither can vaginal scan show. Second is to test hubby's sperm.. if it's moderate or so so only, you can get him to see traditional chinese medicine for herbs and/or accupunture and also take western multi vits. . Thirdly, you can use opk to test LH surge (bd for the next couple of days or alternate days) and/or go to gynae for very scan to check egg growth (if any) and to check lining thickness. Lining above 9mm to 16mm is very good for implantation. My probs were no egg (I had to have stims) and very thin lining... So I needed help in that area... Hope that helps you.... Jiayou!

    Yukki, I was taking GNC prenatals then I rem someone told me the GNC formula not very good so I switched to Blackmores conceivewell gold. Is your hubby taking any supps? Sometimes problem doesn't lie with women, could be low sperm quality or count from men. If he hasn't started on supps, perhaps it is good to ask him to start taking supps. I trying to concieve for a year before I got my bfp. Along the way, there were countless heartbreaks when I saw red every month. I wanted to give up many times too. I cried a few times throughout that journey too. I finally got my bfp in Jan and just popped my darling baby out. So dont't give up hope.

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hey there yukki! I echo the view of the ladies here.

    I'm not sure what you have done at your gynae. But there were a couple of tests I've done - sperm check, monthly egg and lining check, polyps checked (and removed), and lastly hsg. The doc I went also gave my hubby some herbal medication and myself medications and us dates to bd.

    As for traditional chinese medicine - I went to see dr wu.

    As for bbt - you have to continue monitoring and at regular timings. That's what I did cuz requested by dr wu! Fertility friend is a good app to use.

    As for opk - I used clearblue. More ex but easier to see smiley or no smiley. I did opk twice a day, when to start - I used the date prescribed by clearblue website (just need to input date of your last menses)

    As for vitamins- I was on gnc Pre natals, royal jelly, vitamin e, folic acid.

    As for meals - I didn't take bananas and any cooling fruits. Also no tea and coffee, including green tea, chrysanthemum tea, Chinese tea etc. no cold drinks too. Took Brazilian nuts and zhen soup (before ovulation for the soup), Brazilian nuts all the way and oh - chicken essence after ovulation too. And of course veggies and fish many many.

    Hope this helps.

    Before seeing traditional chinese medicine, I bfp once but mc at 7 weeks, then I chance upon this thread and started seeing Dr Su. I quitted cold drinks and drink Longan red tea almost everyday and Zhen drink once a week. Got another bfp after taking her medicine for 4 months but mc again at 5 weeks. I never do bbt but I bought cheap OPK sticks online to check if I ovulate. After seeing dr su for 8 months I decided to switch to another traditional chinese medicine dr lian. Got bfp after the 3rd month. During these period, me and my husband also try out feng shui and diligently follow all the things that the feng shui master taught us. So I am actually not sure which one help us the most but I believe all do help us. My husband and I really grateful to all the helping hands we have.

    not forgetting my husband also been taking GNC men's multi vitamins and CoQ daily.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Dragontail! Enjoy your trip

    Yukki I think the ladies have offered very good advices. I know how it feels when we tried so hard and we still see red every month. I feel it's good for you and your hubby to go for physical checks and if all is well for both of you, opk will help determine a more accurate timing to do the deeds. Then again some friends have advised me to bd after menses as soldiers technically can survive for 3-7 days inside the woman's body and able to catch the egg during its release. Most importantly dont't let the stress of trying to concieve-ing affect you and your hubby as the mental state is critical for conception too.

    Hi yukki. Me bfp twice but they were not viable in the end. I'm still trying, though I feel age is catching up and honestly I lose a little hope everytime I see red. But I feel so long as we women still ovulate, there's a still a chance (provided your hubby is also sent for checks). Jiayou and all the good luck to you.

    Thanks superwoman

    Dragontail!! Good trip so far? Hehe.... Miss seeing you post!

    Yukki (dragontail & Shez & Poohy & momomum & lovesbaby & lishan.. I'm on a roll tonight with my memory! Haha..), dont't lose hope. I tried for around close to 2 yrs... Some ladies hit bfp them miscarried... While during those 2 yrs.. I never hit bfp (even with 6 or 7 iuis)... & I cried a lot, thinking I can never get bfp... Then when I finally got a bfp.. it was twins... But then lost 1 darling at week 9.. never ever stop believing we can be mums someday ya?

    hihi prayinghard, currently i have been visiting zou yu min sinseh at amk...have been diligently taking the med and avoid taking cold stuffs but i do still take coffee, not sure if coffee will affect fertility too? recently i was diagnosed with a functional cyst in the right ovary but the last ultrasound check seems like the cyst is gone...not sure if the cyst did have any impact on fertillity?
