I thought it would be amusing (and perhaps helpful) to record any advice that people thought totally bizarre in heir journey through infertility.

We have had the "stand on head" after sex advice which struck me as unnecessarily extreme when raising ankles may do.

we did check to see if it was me or DW that had to stand on their head ;)


Let us know what was weird, maybe even wonderful, and critically DID IT WORK ?  :)

As one of our wonderful Clomid ladies said, apparently BMS in "woofy" style helps  ;)  :p

Our experience isn't a sex one but something that our consuslatnt did everytime we went to see him, a little bit  ^idiot^ .

What he would do was go through how an egg was produced.  He would sit with his legs out straight and his arms out wide and say his body was a womb and his arms fallopian tubes - he would then procede to demonstrate how an egg travels along the fallopian tube by way of a mexican wave - which he of course would demonstrate!!  ;D

DH and I would just sit there thinking 'Is this for real'  - bless our consultant he is very good and has just retired.

My Mum once told me I should put books under the end of the bed to lift it up to a "better" angle!!!  Where do our mother's get this stuff from?!  ^idiot^

Don't hold your hands up if you are actually doing that at the time, Can lead to a nasty neck sprain  ;D

LOL VB @ your consultant.  I'm surprised you didnt leave the room.  I think I would have wet myself!

I have tried all the above things and have to say I now have a very good rendition of Spiderman but, alas, no baby for me yet.  A lot of laughs though  ;D

A friend of ours gave us a fertility symbol, for want of a better word - its a phallic shaped piece of pottery with feathers sticking out of the top of it, and black stripes on it!

My favourites- although not that bizarre, are these two classic gems:

"just relax - then it'll happen".... or "we just got really drunk one night, then it hapened"

That's easy for you to say - you're ovulating!!

I've heard that you have a better chance of conceiving with morning BMS than in the evening....

My sisters advice is - use a condom!! She has had rubber malfunction twice and both times its ended in a you know what! ^baby^  Some people have all the luck (or not depending on your point of view!)

Also - in case you're worrying about the issues raised in my little tale, i should say my sis lives in Canada, where it would appear there's either a bit of a problem or someone at the factory is having a bit of a laugh!  :eek:

You may want to bear that in mind next time your traveling!!

There is a general trend here of pregnancy happening when it is least likely or indeed being actively discouraged.  Maybe we should stop trying altogether  :eek:

Will now say to people who ask NTTC for x months and see if that tricks the gods into making it happen :)

Morky - that is an actual piece of advice I've been given lots of times:

"Just stop TTC and then it'll happen"

Like that's possible!!!  ;D  ;D It's a bit like asking someone to stop breathing!!!
