SMEP Success Stories

Deleitra

Me and my husband have spent 2 years trying to have our first baby, I’ve had 3 chemicals in the past and was under the impression that I couldn’t have kids. I have had fertility help for about a year and was honestly about to give up. I told my husband that we would do the sperm meets egg plan and we followed it to a T with opks. I took a test the day my period was due and also the day after. Both were negative, I was alittle disappointed to be honest. 4 days late for my period I took a test and it was still negative, but something didn’t feel right!! I waited until 8 days late and then tested and got a positive!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes, I cried in the bathroom before getting the strength to tell my husband. This morning I took a digital at 5 am and was so nervous, it read “yes+” and I feel like a weight lifted off my shoulders. This method works and I’m so happy, I will continue to use this for all my kids

Megs

We tried the SMEP and it worked first time! We were ttc for 7 months before trying this. We BD’d for 3 days from positive OPK but we didnt bother to skip a day and give it one more go due to DH’s work and I was taking my temps so I new I had well and truly passed ovulation.

I’m so excited that I finally got my BFP and really recommend giving SMEP a go! πŸ™‚

After trying for two years to no avail, i gave the SMEP a try. first month of the SMEP i was preggers and my lil girl is 5months old now.

i recommend it to anyone πŸ™‚ and will definately use it in future

Samantha

I suffered a miscarriage early in the year. After undergoing a D&C, my husband and I were given the all clear to start trying again. After 5 months of trying (with clomid) with no success, we finally tried the SMEP. After one try with the SMEP we have a sticky little bean due in the Spring!

SamaΓ«lle

I followed it by the book, took vitamins and bought Conceive Plus. Don’t know what exactly weighed in the most, but I’m now 5 weeks pregnant!

Breanne

I want to share my story to encourage others. I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks Feb ’17. After a couple of cycles to get over it and a few cycles of not trying/not preventing I read about the SMEP. So I bought OPKs and hubby and I followed the recommended times for sex. I found out I was pregnant on our second cycle trying. That’s 6 months after the miscarriage I am now 7 weeks and have seen a strong heartbeat. A little bit about me- I am 38 and have two sons almost 4 years old and almost 2 years old. Best wishes to you all.

Bethany

Ttc for 20 months, month 21, we tried the smep plan, first time, and i had a positive pregnancy test by 9dpo. Our son is 10 months old now.

Alyson

I typically don’t write online reviews etc but I had to share my experience. We had been trying for 6 months. On month 6 we used pre-seed and SMEP for the first time and just got a BFP! The whole process of trying to get pregnant is surprisingly stressful and I am still shocked that this worked for us the first cycle we tried it. I would definitely recommend giving it a try!

Tanya

I tried SMEP after 9 months & no success. We got pregnant in month 10 on our first try!! Turns out, I ovulated much earlier than I thought. Now I’m 21 weeks pregnant with a boy (my second) and feel so grateful! Thank you SMEP. Highly recommend.

CeCe

Our first pregnancy was a (happy!) surprise and we thought our second try would be just as easy. Well, we were wrong! After 3 months of TTC with no results, I happened upon this site and decided to give it a go. I had only been using a few apps to determine ovulation – no OPKs (now I know how silly that was!). Turns out I was ovulating DAYS later than any of the apps predicted. We followed the SMEP steps exactly and got our BFP 13 DPO. I definitely recommend giving this method a try! Nothing to lose!

Chelsea

After 20 months of trying to conceive we had a miscarriage with a D&C. Following that loss i wanted to be pregnant again so badly and found the SMEP. We did the SMEP and on the 2nd cycle we were pregnant. The first cycle of trying SMEP I missed my ovulation date by a few days and therefore had stopped baby dancing several days too soon. The second month I used OPK from clear blue brand and followed the plan exactly as written and now I’m 5 weeks pregnant with my little peanut! Best of luck to everyone!

Jill

We tried SMEP on our second month of TTC and it worked. Unfortunately ended in a chemical pregnancy, but tried again next immediate month and we are now pregnant again! Praying this one sticks!

C

After TTC for 6 months and suffering a MC we were willing to try anything. Sceptical at first and daunted but we did it, BFP first go at the plan!!! Got our BFP at 10 days post op. What a miracle! If followed to the letter I truly believe this is the way to give yourselves the best chance possible! Praying for a happy and healthy 9 months and beyond!

Alisha

I have used SMEP twice successfully. The first time, I had a chemical after 3 months of trying and went on to conceive the next month.

I conceived the second time after the first month of doing SMEP.

OC

We used SMEP during our second cycle of TTC and I am now 5 weeks and 5 days pregnant! We used OPKs and I measured by basal temp each morning. We BD’ed every other day from day 8 and for 3 consecutive days once I knew I was ovulating. Hooray!

Victoria

My husband and I waited a long time to decide to have children. Mostly because we both travel for work. So when we decided we actually wanted children I was already 40. After seeing a fertility specialist to check the quality and quantity of my eggs we were told to try naturally for 3 months but in January I should come back in and start IVF immediately. The doctor would’ve preferred to start right then but we were both going out of town alternately over the next 3 months. We made an appt for January 16th to come in and start treatments. We never came in for that appt. πŸ˜‰ Due to our crazy schedules we missed Novembers ovulation but my husband was able to come visit me in December and we did SMEP. I returned home December 23 and took a pregnancy test on the 8th. Got a positive:). We called and cancelled the appt with the fertility doctor. And today we have an amazing lil girl. Thanks SMEP! Can’t thank you enough!

Lisa

Worked for us. First month of clomid and SMEP. Now we have a gorgeous three year old daughter. Took me a while to come back with my story. Thank you.

Madeleine

Had a silent miscarriage after trying for 18 months, as you can imagine pretty devastated. Found this plan got pregnant first try. had a lovely 8lb 11oz girl πŸ™‚

Mel

I had been trying desperately for 7 months to get pregnant with our 2nd child and with endometriosis I was aware that it could take us a whole (although with our 1st child we conceived after 3 months). I had been recommend the SMEP by a mum on a fertility forum.On my 8th cycle I thought I’d give it a try. My period was one day late and guess what? Yep, a big fat positive pregnancy test today!!

Katie

My husband and I tried for 10 months to get pregnant with our second child. We got pregnant the first month we tried this plan! Thank you!!

Linda

OMG this really works!
With our first child we ttc 4 months before we found this plan, followed it and got a bfp the second month. This time, thanks to smep, I got pregnant on the first try!

Rachel

I have been trying for 2 years, after 1year I got pregnant and unfortunately had a miscarriage at 8 weeks. Been trying for a year since with no luck. A friend mentioned this to me so I thought I’d give it a try, as after so long it’s difficult to keep motivation! I am happy to say I got my positive this first month.

Lu

3rd time TTC and tried the SMEP for the first time and got pregnant! Thank you! Just wanted to return the favor and share my story like so many others did for me!

Becca

I had a miscarriage on labour day and was ready to hop back into the saddle. We waited one cycle and then with OPK in hand, followed this plan.

I actually missed one day of BD and was convinced we were out but luckily, it still worked and I got my BFP that month! Definitely worth it, I can’t believe it worked the first time! Would recommend this to anyone.

Elo

It worked the first month we tried SMEP!
We followed the plan step by step.
Got my BFP 3 days before my AF was due πŸ™‚

Lydia

This plan worked for us the first cycle that we tried it! We had been TCC for 4 months before thing SMEP and we were getting frustrated and stressed because we felt like we were doing everything right and were timing it correctly. We followed this plan pretty much to a T. Turned out I was ovulating a few days later than I thought. Now we got our BFP and can’t wait to meet our baby!

Liv

I have always had irregular periods and was under the impression it may take me a while to conceive. Once we decided we would try for a baby I started using OPKs to pinpoint my exact ovulation day along with pressed. We also decided to use the SMEP. I was sceptical at first, but I am proof this plan works. I have found out recently I am pregnant, after the first time of trying! I’m not saying it will guarantee your first time trying will be successful but it will definitely improve your chances! Good luck

Brooke

The first time we tried the SMEP it worked!!! Now, I can’t believe it but we are doing it again for baby number two!!!

Masha

I never leave reviews, but wanted to say HUGE thanks to the creators of the website for providing such great tips and tricks that really work! We’ve been TTC for over 2 years unsuccessfully for baby # 1. We’ve done artificial insemiation earlier this year and were considering IVF as the next step. Nothing seemed to work until I came across this site. I got my first ever BFP after the 1st try of SMEP. Highly recommend to all!

Louise

Unfortunately we had a miscarriage earlier this year. Our second month of trying we used the SMEP and fell pregnant first month!

Kari

I’m 36 hubby is 37. We had been ttc our third child for 13 months with no luck. Had even tried several iui cycles. We decided to give the smep a try. It worked for us the very first time. We are now 11 weeks pregnant. We did also use soft cups and pre-seed. So very happy that this worked for us!

Randa

SMEP works! I had my Implanon removed on April 28th, and we immediately started TTC. We were unsuccessful until we tried SMEP on the first day of my June cycle, June 13th. I followed the plan step for step. It’s now July 9th, and we have a positive!

Grace

Glenda

I have used the SMEP twice and both times thank God it has worked!! I am soo happy that someone came up with this method it really works!! I recommend it for anyone who is trying to conceive a baby. Thank u sooo much is sooi worth trying it.

Shannon

My husband and I were TTC our last baby. I use OPKs and temping. We employed SMEP this month and the first cycle we are now expecting baby #4!!!

Bill

My wife and I had been trying for 6 months for number 2, guessing when she would ovulate in her (irregular) cycles. We were overdoing it – but inconsistent. Sometimes we’d do it for 6 days then not for another 6. SMEP made sense because we used OPKs to actually see when things were happening, and doing it every other day was more sustainable! In the first month using the OPKs we saw a surge and that month she conceived. We are meeting our second child in June! SMEP works – a lot better than our haphazard approach!

Nadia

I followed SMEP and got pregnant the first month. I had been trying on and off for about 9 months and seriously trying for 3 months. I am in my late 30s and this is my first pregnancy.

I have a 25 day cycle. I started on day CD6 then CD8, CD10, CD11 (positive OPK), CD12, CD13. I didn’t even do the extra day because I can see from temperature that I ovulated on CD12.

Sarah

After trying to get pregnant for 5 months and having one early miscarriage, I was desperate to conceive a child with my husband. I heard about SMEP and thought we’d give it a try-what did we have to lose? I got pregnant our second month of following the plan! When we decided we were ready to try for our second baby we immediately followed SMEP and got pregnant the first month! We were shocked, but thrilled! We now have two beautiful daughters (20 mo and 2 mo) and I know that we will use the Sperm Meets Egg Plan when we are ready to try for our third baby. Thank you for making our baby dreams come true quickly!

Lisa Ruth

This worked for me on the second month of trying!!!. I had a miscarriage trying for baby #2 and had been trying for a year before I came across the SMEP. Because of my age (40) we were beginning to think that was it for us, so even went to see a fertility specialist, and yes the tests came back with a very low AMH (2.2) and given a 5% chance of conceiving naturally. I was gutted walking out of that appointment. However we still followed the SMEP that cycle and bam got a BFP. I’m 8.5w and saw the heartbeat on an ultrasound this week….I’ve got everything crossed. Good luck ladies!

Viviana

I was trying for 6 months when I read about this method I decided to try it right away !
It work the first time , I’m happily pregnant with my second one 10eeeks so far

Ash

Worked the first month. Used with clomid, metformin and preseed.

Carrie

After 1.5 years of trying to conceive, temping and charting, and one heartbreaking miscarriage along the way, we were getting ready to throw in the towel and seek help from a fertility specialist. In a last-ditch attempt to conceive “au naturel,” we decided to give SMEP a shot, even though we were skeptical that it would help. One month (and many ovulation strips and Pre-Seed syringes) later, we got a positive pregnancy test! I’m 5 months pregnant now and I certainly think SMEP is worth trying, even if you’re skeptical–I’m not sure exactly what did the trick that last time around, but I certainly plan to use SMEP again if we have any trouble conceiving again in the future.

Jenny

My husband and I decided to try SMEP when trying for our first baby. We figured it would take a couple of months. We got pregnant the first month! I’m now happily 13 weeks pregnant with our first baby! It’s so simple but makes so much sense and works.

AL

It worked for us on the first month! We used the Amazon cheapie ovulation sticks and the pregnancy tests and had a 100% success rate! Baby boy is due this October! Thank you so much for this website and I hope it helps many other women as well!

Stephanie

I had been ttc by myself for 3 cycles without success. I finally decide to try SMEP and add Pre-seed as well since my CM is near non-existent. First cycle trying this and BFP! I was honestly shocked and was shaking! I couldn’t believe how successful it was! I definitely recommend it to anyone!

Christina

After ONE muthaf*&%in try?!?! Seriously? My husband and I had been trying for five months (we’re over 35) before I got pregnant. Unfortunately I miscarried. The doctor suggested waiting three cycles before trying again, and we did. Then, using this plan ONCE, I got a + test today. That’s amazing.

Brandy

When I first began TTC, I kind of assumed it would be easy. I was young, healthy, with no clear reason for it to be difficult. Well, we tried for a year without success. Then I stumbled upon the SMEP. I’ve been pregnant three times in my life, each time on the first try using the SMEP. We tried the SMEP, and on the first cycle, I was pregnant! Unfortunately, we lost that pregnancy at 6 weeks. A couple of months after the loss, we tried the SMEP again, and I was again pregnant on the first try! Nine months later, we welcomed our healthy, happy son. When we decided to add a second child, we used SMEP again, and once again, we had a BFP on the first cycle. My daughter was born, also healthy and happy, nine months later. I highly recommend the SMEP, and not just because it worked for me. I recommend it because it helps you actually see how your body is operating, rather than basing things on statistical averages. The SMEP helped me learn that I was actually ovulating closer to day 20 than day 14 of my usually 30-day cycle (I had short luteal phases, but was still able to have two normal pregnancies, as evidenced by my kids!). I always suggest people check out the SMEP when they are trying to conceive.

Jacinta

After a year and 7 months of trying everything to concieve my 2nd child a friend told me about the SMEP so I thought I would give it ago I tried everything else didn’t think it would work but I was wrong it worked first time I tried it

Nicky

After a year of temp charting, OPK testing, finding out husband had poor sperm motility and trying to have sex at the right time, we came across this plan as it was a free book on my kindle!

The first month didn’t go quite to plan as we work shifts and found it difficult to have sex on the right days.

Next month we missed one of the BD days but hey presto it worked!!! 6 weeks pregnant now πŸ™‚

Anon

Tried normally the last two months with no success. This month, I used the FertilAid products, Pre-Seed, and SMEP and got my BFP!

Laura

We had been trying for baby #2 for six months and were getting so discouraged. Baby #1 was conceived our first month so I thought something was wrong with one of us! We followed this plan nearly exactly last month and also temp’d every morning aaaaand success!!! Yesterday at 12 DPO I got two BFPs and will take another one next week just to confirm – but I’m pretty sure. I highly recommend temping as well as OPKing if you really want to pinpoint everything. My stupid phone apps were so wrong with predicting my ovulation – as much as 5 days off! Gah!

Arwen

I actually did not know about this even though this is what I did to conceive our first child.

We had tried for two years to get pregnant, and I finally decided it would just never happen. I was young so I did not know about OPK‘s and such, but I did decided to BD every other day from the end of one period to the start of the next.

That first cycle I did that, I conceived. I did get what I thought was my period, but it was implantation. I continued to BD every other day after it ended and couldn’t figure out why sex suddenly ended with me being super crampy. lol Found out a few weeks later!

I’m trying this plan again, knowing the ENTIRE plan now, and knowing what OPK‘s are. lol I’ll be back to tell you if it works!

Ali

We have been trying for months following a miscarriage 6 months ago with no luck. I finally decided to get really serious, did some research and came across this plan. It worked on the first try! And we missed the very last baby dance day (after the 3 in a row when you wait a day and BD one more time) because my husband got sick. I was stressing because of it but much to my surprise and delight I got my BFP this morning!!!

Lacey

My husband and I have been TTC for a few months and it just hadn’t happen. I have pcos and was concerned that I couldn’t get pregnant Then my DH found the SMEP plan and we got our BFP the first month we tried it!! We are due in Oct and couldn’t be more excited!! Thank you SMEP!!

Katobi

Tried SMEP in April 2013 after a m/c in January. The SMEP worked the first month. We now have a 12 month old son. We’re in our 2month of TTC #2. Reread the SMEP ( both DH and I). Crossing fingers we get it right this cycle.

Finding that breastfeeding may be interfering with my luteal phase length.

Highly recommend this plan. It works!!! Husband and I are in our 40s and we conceived naturally!

Caro

I tried SMEP the first month after my husband and I decided to try for a baby. Followed it to the letter – one month was all we needed! I’m now 35 weeks pregnant, waiting for our little girl to make an appearance. Thank you so much SMEP!

A.S.

This method worked for us the first time. We tried our own way previously but our plan wasn’t well timed. These BD instructions are spot on. Fingers crossed that this pregnancy goes well. Will use this method again! <3

Adriana

Hi!!

After seven months of tcc, using OPK and bbt, finally I had my BFP just in the first month we try the SMEP!!

I’m so happy! I recomend this “method” for all!!

Monica

I just want to say that after losing our first pregnancy due to a missed miscarriage we were desperate to get pregnant again As soon as possible. We followed smep to the letter for one month and just got our bfp yesterday!!!! I’m a believer! ;-)))

kt

I had a miscarriage 6 months ago, and was feeling like i would never get pregnant again. The first month we tried smep, we didnt follow it exactly. After reading some smep reviews, we tried to follow the plan more closely. Two months later i got my BFP!!!!! So happy we stuck to it!!

Joann

I followed the SMEP plan step by step and used Wondfo OPK strips we got on Amazon. I also used the Kindara app so that I could track everything and have easy access to it. My husband and I got pregnant on our first month of trying SMEP and now I am 23 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. I was skeptical at first because I know so many people who struggled and took months/years to conceive but this really worked for us. I have told all my friends about it!

Erin

We followed the smep to the letter and it worked first time!! We had previously been trying for 4 months since our miscarriage, I ovulated much later than day 14 even though my CM indicated I was ovulating on day 14.

Our much wanted baby is due January 2nd πŸ™‚

Ute

I never leave reviews. But this one deserves one! I couldn’t believe it, but after two of my friends got pregnant first try I had to try it myself. And voila. First time! Thank you so much I couldn’t be happier!!!

Kristen

THIS PLAN WORKED!!! A little background. I am 27 and I have two children 10 & 8 from a previous marriage. I started TTC March 2013. Finally got a BFP in September 2013 only to have a mmc in October at 10 weeks. I had to have a D&C and told myself I would give it one more try. Truly thought it would happen right away being that you’re supposedly “more fertile” after a miscarriage. Said I wasn’t going to stress and whatever happened happened. Fast forward to March 2014 and AF showed up as usual, on day 34 of my cycle. I set a deadline for myself and said that I was going to really “try” on last month before calling it quits. I read about this plan, went and bought a clear blue digital ovulation kit, and was ready to go. I had no clue if I was even ovulating and no idea when since my cycles were about 34-35 days since the D & C. Started testing on day 10 and finally got a positive ovulation on CD18. We had sex that day, day 19, day 20, skipped a day and had sex day 22. Figured we had given it our all and continued to have sex every other day “just in case”. Low and behold, yesterday (11dpo) I got my positive!!! I could not be happier! I would recommend this to anyone who has had trouble. I would have tried this from the beginning if I would have known about it! Now just praying for a healthy and happy 9 months! Good luck ladies!

C.K.

We did it!

This last month was the second time we tried the SMEP. This time we followed the plan to the letter. It was our last try before my scheduled laparoscopy in April. Well… I got my very first positive HPT this week at just 11 days past ovulation. And another positive HPT today. I can’t believe it! THANK GOD! Now we’re just praying for a healthy full term pregnancy. I’d recommend the SMEP to anyone.

Lenore

We were trying for a long, long time. We were about to start all the medically assisted stuff. I never thought I would want to do that, but I was so discouraged. Then I found SMEP. We added baby aspirin and cough syrup to our regimen.

First month, and, voila! Now I’m almost eight weeks and feeling wonderfully tired, nauseated and bloated. My fingers and toes are crossed that this little bean sticks.

So very grateful, thank you!!

Amanda

Someone told me about this method on the What to Expect App and so I thought we could give it a shot. It was our first month trying and couldn’t believe it worked so fast! I am so excited to be due November 1st. I used the FRER digital OPK test and worked like a charm. I attempted to track my temps on Fertility Friend app, but this method was so much easier. Thanks for sharing!!

Erin

We used this method in August, the first month we decided to start TTC. Lo and behold, I took a pregnancy test a day or two before my expected period and got my BFP – couldn’t believe it only took one month! We were gearing up for the long haul.

Patricia

We tried SMEP and got pregnant in two months!!! I chose to use the plan because it wasn’t stressful at all… And it totally worked!!! I am due 8/11/15 and we are so excited!!!

Stephanie

We just tried the SMEP this past month. Bought the Wondfo OPKs and hpts from Amazon. Worked perfectly. Got my BFP 15dpo and confirmed with a First Response Early Result.

Mai

My husband and I have been ttc for more than a year now and in the last few months our Dr suggested we go for IVF. So a friend suggested we try SMEP. We thought ok….first time, didn’t quite manage the BD days right. Then last month when we had decided to go for IVF we thought, one last hurrah. We followed the plan to a T. Lo and behold….BFP!!!!!! Our Dr couldn’t believe we did it on our own..,,thanks to SMEP we are going to have our bundle of joy…we are now 5w4d!
Baby dust to everyone trying…just keep at it!

Elizabeth

After two months of trying, I decided to ease up on the daily sex and try the smep. Worked on the first month trying using every other day sex and also mixing up positions! So happy!!

Sarah

Hi! We has been TTC for 8 months using a fertility monitor. We decided to stop using the monitor and try the SMEP plan as I had only just discovered it, I’m pleased to say it worked first time and I’m now 13 weeks pregnant! I totally believe it was this plan that helped us get pregnant! Thanks so much!

Amy

Lindsey

After trying for a baby for 13 months we fibally found out we got our BFP! Sadly at 7weeks we suffered a MMC. We wanted to try again right away. We lost our angel on 9/7/12 started using SMEP and got our next BFP 10/30/12! 9 months later our rainbow joined our family!

Joe

Yes, this plan help me get pregnant, after 3 years of ttc, was not able to get pregnant and came across this plan first time I tried it religiously got pregnant and now we are blessed with a baby boy.

Amanda

I heard about SMEP from a period tracker app that I have been using since delivering my stillborn daughter in November of 2012. I had always had irregular periods so I of course was fearful that I would have to wait for months for my cycle to start again. On January 24th I was ecstatic that I started bleeding again. I immediately downloaded the app (recommended by a friend) and started tracking. The social function exposed me to a world of women who had been experiencing so many of the feelings I had been having. I read about SMEP and decided to give it a try. I ovulated 8 days later than I was supposed to… Those days testing and getting a negative test were killer.

This last week I have been experiencing symptoms that I either talked myself out of or attributed to something else altogether. I was afraid to test thinking that even if I was pregnant if would probably be too early to tell. I was resigned to waiting until Saturday am since this would be 15 days after my OPK was positive (the day SMEP says to test). This morning (one day early, I know!) after hubby left the room to get breakfast I decided to just take a HPT with the understanding that if it wasn’t positive it was probably just early and if AF didn’t show I could test again in a week. As that strip was turning pink I kept thinking its gonna be super faint. I’m going to have to really squint to see it but even a faint line is positive. Well guess what? As clear as day it was positive!

I can honestly say that SMEP worked like a charm. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. You have made my dreams come true!
