    Atomic--I had a question about cut-off that's mentioned in some of the plans. I am trying to decide what timing to use. DS was an almost 5 day cut off, so I am a little hesitant to do a cut off, I know timing is only one part of the sway but past experiences play with your psyche you know? I wanted to try O+12, but I am afraid I won't time it right and it will take forever to get pg. What other option is there? What would you recommend,?

    If you don't want to DTD on O day (and many of us are because everything else we're doing to sway pink lowers fertility so much!) and are worried that an O+12 won't work well, then you could DTD once when you get a +OPK which will give you a small cut-off but not decrease your odds of getting pregnant too much and it's also very easy to figure out! I think I just posted the 'Frequency of BD for Pink or Blue' thread link for you elsewhere.

    I personally think that as long as you do an abstain or a frequent release http://genderdreaming.com/forum/show...-pink-and-blue, you can BD whenever you want to BD. It's the frequency pattern that does the swaying and the timing has nothing to do with it at all.

    When people do both cutoff and O+12, they are told to do an abstain of 7-10 days and then only one attempt. I strongly suspect that it's the abstain + one attempt that sways and not any mystical principles of a given day (and the science seems to support this). So my thinking is, let's try doing an abstain or frequent release (FR does much the same as abstain in terms of lowering sperm count but keeps the sperm healthier and fresher), and then only one attempt, but time it to up the chances of pg. My preferred timing for someone who only wants to do timing for pink is for people to BD with one attempt when they get a pos OPK, after a long abstain or long/compressed FR (altho I am highly flexible on that!!) If people are doing a lot of other things to sway like jellies, antihistamine, J and D, they may want to do more than one attempt with FR to up their odds of pg.

    thanks AS and zanacal, that makes sense. I am thinking of just DTD whenever (using protection) and then doing a compressed frequent release when we do our attempt since DH isn't really into swaying and I don't think I can get him to abstain or do a normal FR.

    I will be taking antihistamines because I have to! I live on zyrtec for my allergies anyway. But I also wanted to use RepHresh. I am also on the LE diet. WIth all this going on, maybe more than one attempt would be a better plan since I want to get pg quickly.

    If you want to get pg quickly, it's always best to do more than one attempt.

    So many of us have trouble with our DHs and swaying - you're not alone there!! Good luck.

    Hi. It says above that you should start ANY diet 6wks-90 days before TTC girl but on the weight loss thread, it says that if you don't have that much weight to lose you should start 2-3wks before. Will that be enough to establish the correct environment? Thanks!

    Unsatisfying answer - we don't know. I believe that if you are already very thin, then 2-3 weeks of diet may very well be enough (because blood sugar/pH/EWCM seem to change very quickly and while testosterone and estrogen take some time to drop, if you're already low body weight you probably have less T and E than others do anyway) and additionally the majority of people do not get pg the first month of swaying anyway and most people have to drop at least some sway tactics to conceive, and so that ends up being 6 weeks by default.

    You also have the option of starting a vegan/vegetarian diet (for pink, that is) while keeping cals high and do that for a couple months before hitting it very hard on diet. This may help lower your T and E levels without causing you to dry up and blow away to nothing.
