  • I had a friend who had a hard time with this as well. I have read a book that says you need to be relaxed and not so stressed out or worried about getting pregnant. Maybe you need to plan a relaxing evening with dinner and maybe a movie or something. Stress can certainly be a problem. I hope that this helps and if I think of anything else I will answer again.

  • Well you can try taking prenatal vitamins now. You need the extra folic acid to get pregnant. of course it usually happens when you're not trying so hard. Encourage the prospective father to wear boxers instead of briefs might help as well. Most of all just enjoy going thru the motions. And don't be afraid of different positions. Good Luck!!

  • I would recommend learning about your body's fertile signs, if you aren't charting already. It could be that you aren't having sex around the time that you are fertile. There's a great book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility that would be helpful. You should be able to get it from your local library so you wouldn't have to shell out any money :) Good luck to you!

  • Hey my husband and I were going through the same thing. We were ttc for about a year, then we decided just to have sex every other day for about two months (that was the fun part of course) and if that did not work then we would go and see a doctor. Now I am late on my period and we are thinking that it paid off. So just relax and enjoy your partner and try to have sex every other day and you just migh get lucky. Good luck to you guys!!!
