one cycle

We have been trying to conceive for over a year with no luck. I have hunted all the trying to conceive boards and two products caught my attention. Both of them had countless reviews saying that these products led to a BFP after the first month (even for couples that had been ttc for years!!!). The Clearblue Fertility monitor Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor (Packaging May Vary), and Preseed/Conceive Plus.

So, two cycles ago I bought the Clearblue Fertility Monitor.

Without this, I was not pinpointing my ovulation date correctly and our “trying” window was much longer and turned into a job. Also, some months I was off by almost a whole week because once we started ttc, my cycles went all wonky and length changed from about 28-30 days to 36-38 days!!). This monitor is better than ovulation sticks because it tests for estrogen and LH so gives you a longer window to do the deed and ensure there are enough spermies when the egg makes an appearance on the scene. Last month (the first time using it), the monitor was getting to know my body and I got no peak fertility days (only 6 days of high fertility), but this month I had three high fertility days and two peak fertility days. We did the deed all 5 days and struck gold. Only got to use the monitor for two cycles!!! (read other reviews on this monitor on amazon – it’s amazing).

OK so now that we had the timing right, in came the real champion. After my first BFN with the monitor, I decided to order Conceive Plus to make sure I was doing everything I could to up my chances. I kept reading all these BFP stories of people that got their BFP after months or years of ttc after their first time using Conceive Plus or Preseed (both products help spermies live longer and make it to the ultimate destination). I kept reading over and over that people were getting prego after the first month of using it. After a year, I was willing to try anything so I got Conceive Plus (I preferred this to Preseed because it has minerals like calcium, etc, in it that supposedly help sperm survive the journey). It was really fun to use, felt very natural, and made the process different and fun, and best of all, it gave us our BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know if it was low sperm count, not enough cervical mucous, or too acidic an environment in my body or what, but Conceive Plus blasted any of those potential issues out of the water. It was like a one two punch – the monitor helped us know we were precise on timing, and then the Conceive Plus was like a protective bubble for the sperm to help them survive until misses egg showed!!!!

I highly recommend both these products because without them who knows how much longer I’d be waiting for my BFP!!!!

FYI – one issue I had with ordering was that I ordered an 8-pack of the prefilled applicators, and when it arrived it was only a trial 3-pack. I contacted amazon and they gave me a refund (and refunded my shipping because I paid for 2-day shipping so it would get here on time) and told me to place another order and they would ship it for free. I placed another order for an 8-pack, but again received a 3-pack. Contacted amazon again and they refunded me completely. I wrote a note to the company letting them know something might be wrong on their warehouse end, and then placed ANOTHER order for two 8-packs and voila! Two 8-packs showed up! (so hopefully this issue is fixed) The thing is, now I have a TON of it and don’t need it!!!!!! Luxury problem!!! 🙂
