Default Advice Needed!!!

Hi All

New to this site. Thought it might be worth while getting some advice from those who are in a similar situation to me! I am planning to start ttc baby number 2 in a few weeks. My daughter was planned so I have had some experience of what ttc is all about! My periods were irregular (recently been diagnosed with PCOS and borderline underactive thyroid) when I was ttc my first but managed to get pregnant fairly quickly 5 months. I am currntly on Angus Castas to help regulate hormones I was on this last time and think it may have worked for me!! Is it just me or are other people confused as to what is the best method for ttc? There are so many different oinions!! Sex everyday, every other day bla bla bla!!!!!!!!!!! Some try and pinpoint on exact day but thats not for me too risky!! What do others do? Im thinking the best approach is every second. Covers all bases and isnt total over kill trying everyday which can add pressure to any relationship! Do any of you have advice?

Thanks

Welcome to TBC!
 


I had great luck with Toni Weschler's Taking Charge of Your Fertility. It really taught me a lot about how my body works, and I was able to conceive two kids at age 38 and age 39. I highly recommend charting and temping to pinpoint the most fertile time (the book's method is much more accurate than online charting such as Fertility Friend), then dtd every day or every other day during that time.

Good luck!
