30 Day Infertility Blog Challenge: Day 28

28.Have you ever done something “non-traditional” in order to help you conceive?

Umm, define non-traditional!  We have a baby conceived through IVF using DS.  LOL.  

Before?  When we were trying on our own?  Nah.  Sex, OPK, BBT.  The usual.  Really.  Oh, sure, there were the suggestions for getting drunk and doggy style and legs in the air or staying on your back for 30 minutes...but otherwise, nothing goofy.  

Not even any trysts in bathrooms because I was ovulating.  We are a boring lot.  

What does this even mean???  Seriously...what non-traditional methods are there????  Now I'm curious.  And not a little bit frightened.  Please, share, because I NEED TO KNOW.  


  1. Haha okay so this was a little unclear. I was thinking of things like healers, strange herbal supplements, massages, religious rituals, visualization, psychics, basically anything that someone (even an fellow infertile) might look at you funny for doing. :)
    And does it strike you as strange that as there's "nothing goofy" about putting your feet in the air and laying there for 30 mins after sex when you are trying to conceive? I'm pretty sure that's the stuff bad sitcoms are made of. (And yes, I've done those. I'm not judging, lol)

  2. I love all of these get-to-know-you IF questions. Some of them are hilarious. I don't think I've tried much 'untraditional', unless you can count various herbs or teas??

    I guess relating ourselves to "normal" people who take 2 months to get knocked up, anything beyond doing the humpty dumpty could be considered 'out there'. Go us. :)

    Anyways, hope you are having a fantastic summer!
