I am nursing my 16 mo. old and am TTC. The problem is my cycle has never been regular. We tried for 4+ years before we conceived DD. This included 9 unsuccessful attempts with Clomid. It just happened by chance one month.

So, now I'm not sure what to do. I have no idea how to determine my fertile days since I sometimes go 3-4 months in between periods and rarely have symptoms of ovulation.

Anyone ever deal with something similar? I have no idea what to do besides have sex every other day forever and hope it happens! lol

I would appreciate any tips or advice! Thanks.

Hi! I have the same problem and we are trying to conceive our first. My cycles are 3 and 4 months at a time and no rhyme or reason to them. My dr recently discovered I am not ovulating so they are starting me on Clomid. I cant get into my dr for another month yet so until then I am starting Maca every day and see if it works. I have heard alot of good about it so I am willing to try it.

Interesting. I'll have to look into the Maca. I've never heard of it. I really hope things are easier this time around. I personally had a horrible Clomid experience and will do anything to avoid needing it again.

Your welcome! I am looking forward to getting some maca and trying it. Hopefully it works before my dr app on the 30th so I dont have to go in! :
There is some threads on here about Maca, I dont have the link but if you search for it Im sure you will find it. I just bought mine on Amazon, I got a liquid since everyone says the powder smells horrible!

I would suggest checking your cervix every day and when it feels like "S.H.O.W.", Soft, high, open and wet then have sex every other day on thoses days. I didn't alway have good fertile CM so that's what I had to go by the feel of my cervix some months. Good luck!
