  • We weren't trying when I got pregnant. So maybe stop trying so hard and just have fun and it might happen..Good Luck.

  • Try Vitex, I swear by it do some research on it because I know it helped solve my problem.. It may just be harder for you to get pregnant, or your fertility may be low. Make sure to you are timing it on the part of the month you ovulate. you may be missing it and not even knowing it. Do some research online.

  • Check out Natural Family planning methods. They work wonderfully in reverse. The key is to figure out wen you are ovulating and time sex appropriately.

  • 6 months is nothing to be concerned about. But basically, hubby and I usually shower as soon as we finish. There were a couple times when we fell asleep right after and once when we just didn't have the time. That plus the metformin I was taking to treat pcos did it.

  • Timing is everything, have you tried charting your cervical mucus or using ovulation test predictors? If so then I'd talk to a dr and make sure there's not a problem with either of you fertility wise.

  • Do you know "how" to get pregnant? Do you know when you're most fertile and when you're not? Are your cycles regular? How old are you? The clinical definition of infertility is 12 months of actively trying if you're under age 35 and 6 months of actively trying if you're over that age.

    My son was the product of obsessive charting ("Taking Charge of Your Fertility" style) and Clomid. My daughter was a complete surprise whom we conceived 13 months after her brother was born.
