if your partner ejaculates more than once during 1 session, does that make it more likely to concieve? Thanks in advance.

I'd say no, the second lot of semen would have fewer sperm and could potentially wash away the semen with more sperm in...

absolutely not!

Men need 24 hours of no sex to build up a good supply of spermy semen, according to bits and bobs I've read... I have the weirdest brain full of mad things..

Thanks! Had a bit of an 'early night' last night and woke up today wishing and praying I am pregnant, as u can prob tell by the 3 posts I just posted!

Oh, and before then, we havent had sex for about a month!

Eugenius Tue 26-Jul-05 14:05:18

you may not have had sex for a month but I'll bet your dp has relieved himself in that period

fastasleep Tue 26-Jul-05 14:06:04

Best of luck Lolli!

Thanks Fastasleep!

Your right Eugenious, I have been right next to him when he done it!

How long on average does it take to conceive? I feel sick at these ppl who dont even want children, but just are careless about contraception, then get pregnant immediately and then there are people who are desperate to conceive but can be trying for months, even years to have a baby.

It can take up to 18 months and be within what a doctor would call a normal period, or it can happen right away, everybody's different, it's a really nasty waiting game!

It took me 2 months and then 4 months and I count myself incredibly lucky!!

LolliSweetiepie Tue 26-Jul-05 14:23:32

18 months! yikes!

The lady on the TTC threads know lots about this stuff, I bet you'd get better replies from them, maybe you could join in one?

fastasleep Tue 26-Jul-05 14:24:58

ladies! Sorry bit tired today

jessicaandbumpsmummy Tue 26-Jul-05 14:25:23

i was 5 months with jess and first month of trying this time - im also VERY lucky. Hope it happens for you soon x

well i took 14 months (althou the first 5 months I don't count as the pill was in my system then the next 6 months DH was away) so really only 2/3 months, v v lucky. my dr allowed me to have tests after 6 months TTC thou.

the girls on the april showers are all lovely.

It took me 12 months, I had already booked a date to check my fertility. I have had Endometriosis in the past so I knew it would happen over night. Just be patient. I actually became pregnant when I stopped worrying if I ever would!

HappyHuggy Tue 26-Jul-05 15:28:10

took me 12 months or so with the first and 14 months with the second!

Lizzylou Tue 26-Jul-05 15:29:20

Both times first month of trying, which was a shame really as was enjoying myself!
