My GF and I will TTC around the 15 when I ovulate again. This will be the second time we try and I know we probably didn't do everything perfect so I was wondering if anyone could offer any helpful tips at trying to make our second attempt at TTC a success!

Timing is key! are you using OPKs? are you tracking your temps? your cm?

If you are using OPKs you wanna DTD about 12-24 hours after you get a positive, most people O 24-36 hours after

If you are tracking your temps its usually the temp drop before the rise is the day you would like to DTD but that can be really hard to tell and use.

If youa re tracking CM you wanna DTD when you get EWCM because that is when you are most fertile

I don't really know too much about the temping but yes we're doing everything else. If you don't mind me asking, how are you and your partner TTC? My GF and I are also a same sex couple

We have ordered sperm from NW Cryobank. This is our first cycle TTC but ive been tracking for a couple months.

Tracking temps is pretty easy, its a good tool to confirm that you O'd and when but not necessarily predict it

Its pretty darn expensive, im not gonna lie. We ordered one vial and one insemination kit (that was only $10) and our total after shipping was $504.

NW cryo bank is the only bank i found that would deliver directly to your home without a doctor's release
