Mariah Carey says that daily acupuncture and taking progesterone, a hormone known to help women avoid miscarriage, helped her get pregnant after miscarrying a few years ago.
So we started to wonder what other women do (besides the usual roll in the hay) to get pregnant and turned to our message boards for answers. Here's what some iVillage community members had to say:
"Knowing my [menstrual] cycle was a huge help ... I also added progesterone cream in the cycle I conceived, and I think that was a factor as well.” --farawaysoclose86
"[Because of a health condition] I started on birth control and my doctor said when I came off of it, I would be more fertile; I was only on it for a month, and two months later, I was pregnant... I thought my chances of becoming pregnant were slim. Well, surprise surprise!” –user303
"Surgery to repair my tubes, and clomid!” –timetotry1
"I was religiously going to acupuncture weekly for six months and I added baby aspirin too, which I started about a month before my cycle.” –lmielocl1
"If you aren't getting pregnant fairly easy the ‘old-fashioned way,’ make sure to have your [partner] checked, too! There is so much focus on the woman during the process of TTC that sometimes the possibility that it's a problem with the man is lost... [But it was for us.] We ended up using donor sperm and IUI to get pregnant.” –daisygirl2010
"Using a fertility monitor worked for us the first time!” --jencmommy
