  • Have you talked to your OB about this issue? A simple blood test can show abnormalities
    It could be him too,you know

  • You need to see a doctor about this. The problem may lie with you, with your partner or be a combined issue. You need to get properly tested to find out what is stopping you from conceiving and dealing with it. Home remedies are not even in the same league. MAke an appointment today.

  • Well you do only ovulate one day... you release one egg, however your fertile time can be a day or 2 before that and after that, depending on how long his sperm survives.

  • There are tons of reasons. See your gynecologist.

  • You do only ovulate ONE day a month, so that's why the strip will only show you ovulating one day.

    But I'll be honest; for me the test kits were liars. Said I was ovulating when I was NOT and said I was NOT ovulating when I released the egg that became my son! What worked: tracking my fertile days using the method in "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler. I was charting and using the OPK in tandem. OPK said no egg. Chart said yes. I went by the chart. The result is now 14 and eating me out of house and home!

  • When an ovulation strip is positive, you *should* ovulate within 24 hours. You only release one egg a month so you should only get 1 positive. Have sex within three days of seeing a positive result. Other than that eat healthy and make sure he is too. It's not always the female who has fertility issues. You can go into Walgreens and pick up a sperm test to see if he has a lower than average sperm count or not.
