Good (but tough) one!

1. The first that comes to mind is putting my legs in the air for 20 min after BD.
2. Using Dragontime (an essential oil) to increase fertility
3. My latest, a fertility bamboo plant in the house (but NOT in the bedroom)

Um.... I don't think I've tried any yet. By the time we got to TTC I'd been reading what works and what doesn't.

I wouldn't mind having some of that fertility bamboo though... just cause DH wants a bamboo plant for the house. LOL

I think you may be right!

For those interested, here is my "fertility" bamboo:

Lucky Bamboo Arrangement - Red Orchid Lucky Bamboo

(It doesn't say "fertility", but 8 stalks is supposed to increase/enhance fertility, as long as it isn't placed in the bedroom).

Mine is in my office, next to Norman, my gecko:

We've only tried one...

1. Get drunk and get it on (Charlie and the chocolate factory Depp style makes a wonderful drinking game....)

Robitussion is a myth?
