My partner and I have been trying to get pregnant for a while now with no luck. Any hints and tips on what worked for others would be od a great help. TIA x

There should be loads of hints and tips if you search in this topic.
But first things first try and find out when you're ovulating. You can get cheap pee sticks on amazon that will help with this. That will at least tell you when you need to dtd, asap when you get a positive opk. To be a bit more accurate about it take your temperature, electronically, first thing every day. There will be a noticeable rise of about half a degree when you're about to ovulate, this gives you a bit more warning than the opk IIRC.
Or you can fork out for one of the fancy ovulation predictor machines.

Hi crafty. Me and DH tried for our 2nd DC for 12 long cycles. Got BFP on 15th Dec!

Stopped using cheap OPKS and got a clear blue digital. DTD every other day after getting peak.

Also stopped using normal lube after reading it can slow sperm down.

Good luck

How longs a while? And what are your cycles like? Any obvious issues?

My cycles are pretty regular give or take a few days either side. No obvious issues that we can see
