  • It's still early. Even if you consult a doctor., they'll tell you to give it up to a year.

  • How do you know when you are ovulating ? Are you counting on the calendar or using an ovulation detector? I tried for 6 months with my first son, by just using the calander and calculating it my self, then I used an over the counter ovulation detector I got pregnant that month. I swear by it. I also used it with success after that. It hasn't been long so don't get discouraged! Although I know it feels like forever to you. GL

  • Give it time. Relax. Enjoy the journey. Get an ovulation test kit or use a calendar to plot your morning basal body temperature before you even sit up in bed.

  • Perfectly healthy couples with no fertility problems can take up to 18 months to conceive. By comparison you haven't been trying long enough. Eat healthy and stay relaxed during sex. If you are still concerned then you should follow up with a fertility doctor. I will tell you they might refuse to see you unless you've tried for at least a year.

  • Given that your period was so late I'd say that you are way overstressing this ... Stress can delay ovulation which in turn delays your period. The average couple (and this includes those who are tracking cycles etc.) takes 6-8 months to conceive. Doctors consider it normal to take up to 12 months. It's far too early to start worrying.

  • My husband and I tried for 3 years. The same day I stopped trying is the day I conceived my son. Don't give up but don't think about it when your having sex. The moment you stop trying is when you will conceive. Look for a white slimy film after your period (sorry gross I know), Thats how I knew it was time to have sex because thats a sign of ovulation. It happens about 2-3 weeks after
