How will gynae help me fall pregnant?
Hi there

Some of you know me by know.
I fell pregnant in June 2002. Falling pregnant went quick. Within 3 months after leaving the pill, I fell pregnant. Baby was suppose to be born in March 2003. But unfortunately we had a stillborn.

We've been trying again ever since August last year, but nothing. I should be ovulating this week, so I'm going to get an ovulation kit. But....

Is there anything that my gynae can do to help me fall pregnant? I'm not talking about fertility treatments. But what else can he do? Do they monitor you and tell you when you are ovulationg? Is there some kind of pill you can take to make you more fertile? Please help, cause we are very very desperate for a baby.

Six months is a very short time of trying for a pregnancy. It can take up to a year in a healthy couple.
Fertility tablets have side effects so there is no reason to use them at this stage. You can track your ovulation yourself with an ovulation kit or by checking your cervical mucus. Most women ovulate at midcycle and this is the best time to have intercourse.
