  • Time to go to a doctor for both of you to get checked. See who is the problem. It might not be you. It might be him.

  • See a Reproductive Specialist. You will both be checked thoroughly.

  • As we get older our egg count goes down, you made need help to get the count up. Time to see a doc.

  • Nothing like waiting till the last minute, eh?

  • Unfortunately you cannot increase the number of eggs you have left. The older you get the harder it is to conceive. You will want to consult a fertility doctor. Walgreens sells a sperm count test if you'd like to have your husband take it. A fertility doctor will want to give him one anyway. Healthy eating and start taking a prenatal vitamin.

  • For most women, if they're not pregnant at the end of the first year they (and their partners) need to get checked to find out why not. Once you're over age 35, you need to be seen after 6 months not a year. RUN don't walk to your doctor.
