Trying to Get Pregnant

by Stacey Jenkins

My boyfriend have been trying to get pregnant for 3 months now with no luck. I am 36 years old and have an 18 year old daughter. I have taken the Fertil test and it came back that i was fertile. Then I took the ovulation test and we began, but only 3 times. Is there a position I should try? My uterus is also tilted. I just need advice. Please help.

Thank you,
Stacey Jenkins

Trying to Get Pregnant
by: Amelia Hirota, D.Ac.

Hi Stacey,
I trust that you are fertile, since your Fertil test came back positive and you have an 18 year old daughter. However, being fertile means that you have eggs and that you are ovulating. To actually conceive and stay pregnant, there are so many other boxes that need to be checked off. What is the state of your hormones? How are they communicating? How is your uterine lining? What is the quality of your cervical mucus? Are you recruiting eggs in a timely manner? Are the eggs being nourished sufficiently?

Also, it's very important to think about the sperm. I'm assuming that you conceived your daughter with a different man than your current boyfriend. Have you had a semen analysis done? Sperm is 50% of the equation and it's very important to have the sperm properly assessed, preferably with a Strict Kruger test that looks closely at the motility and morphology.

There is no magic position for conceiving, even with a tilted uterus. However, it's a good idea to try various positions, as it doesn't hurt your chances. Also, you can try to see in which position the penis comes in contact with your cervix. You may be able to feel this. This may increase the number of sperm that are deposited near the os of the cervix.

You've only been trying for 3 months, so I think that it's great that your seeking answers and information that can help you conceive. I encourage to you prepare your body for conception with a stellar diet. Your boyfriend should also be eating a great diet to support the production of healthy sperm. You may want to check out my webinars for more helpful information, especially the diet and lifestyle webinars that form the foundation of a healthy preconception program. Good luck to you!
