Besides tracking when you ovulate, anyone know of any ways, things to do to help you get pregnant quicker?
Neti Pot: By far, the bet relief can be done with a neti pot and saline sinus rinse. Totally natural and very helpful for allergy symptoms. Also, topical nasal sprays can be useful, but always talk with your OB before using any medications in pregnancy. Finally, allergy avoidance as much as possible could help reduce symptoms. ...Read more

Stay healthy: Healthy diet, limit caffeine and alcohol, avoid tobacco, moderate exercise, and staying healthy all support natural fertility.

ACTH-stim test?: Hi. Are you having an ACTH stimulation test, where they inject ACTH (1-24) aka Cosyntropin and measure cortisol in response? Assuming so, no, you do NOT have to be fasting for it.

Conception: Preconceptually, you should start a prenatal vitamin. These are sold over the counter in a variety of formulations.

Second degree burns: Are defined by the presence of blisters, but can range from very shallow to very deep. In general, the best treatment (in my opinion) is to remove the blisters to prevent the possibility of a closed space infection.
