  • Were you on birth control? Sometimes it can take over a year for that stuff to wear off in your body, depending on what type you were using.

  • You May not have enough cervical mucus to safely carry the sperm to your egg. I've heard some people praise the use of raw egg whites. I personally wouldnt try this myself, but it may be something you could look into if you're brave! lol

  • If I were you I would keep track of you cycles. Most women who are on a 28 day cycle, ovulate on day 14 (which would be 2 weeks after the first day of your last cycle.) That would be the best time to have sex. You could also try having sex every other day. I've heard ever day isn't as good because the more a man ejaculated the less sperm in each ejaculate. Also make sure you lift your pelvis up after sex. Put a pillow under you butt for a few minutes, that will help the sperm travel.. Good luck. If things still dont work out for you, schedule an apt with an OBGYN. Then they could test you for infertility.

  • Just hang in there and keep trying! For a young, healthy couple it takes an average of 6 months, and up to one year to conceive. If you're over 35, you should see your doctor after 6 months; otherwise you should wait until a year has passed. I know how it is--it took my DH and I 15 months.

  • It took us 3 years to get pregnant. You need to take charge of your fertility and keep trying. You may not have enough cervical mucus, and KY can interfere with fertilization. If you MUST use a lubricant (we have to) then i recommend PreSeed. It's kinda pricey, but you have to decide if it's worth it.

    Use ovulation predictor kits, and have fun! And if all else fails, STOP TRYING! We got preg while we were separated and USING PROTECTION!

  • 4 months or so really isn't that long, for some it takes years....a doctor won't even help you with fertility drugs and such until you've been trying on your own for at least a year!
