Looking for advice from you successful Ladies!

I am from the other board, I hope this is OK!
I am: 36, highest FHS was 39, all other tests clear, been trying for 2 years, one unsuccessful IUI and IVF, DH is mostly clear (very high volume, so Dr.'s feel that evens out the slight motility issues), we have never had a BFP, now out of insurance and on self-pay. Yes, we are going to call for a "Check/Cooper" appointment, but while we wait I had a question about a totally natural cycle...

What advice do you have? I am day 7 of my cycle. This is a totally unmonitored cycle. I can't eat pineapple (I'm allergic!)but I have bought grapefruit and am eating one a day. (Actually, I am drinking it but I juiced it myself and left all the pulp in, so I am guessing it's the same.)

I have seen you ladies talk about Robitussin, is it just as effective if we use "Pre-seed"? (since I believe the Robitussin is to help with cm?)

I have read your posts about aspirin, but some ladies say no.

When I was at with my RE she only gave me progesterone support once, after my IVF, but never said I needed it on other cycles or after my IUI, though I do still have a bunch left.

So, ladies, what wonderful, crazy, give-it-a-try advice do you have???

Thank you! Congratulations to you all!
Sara H.
