  • i never took birthcontrol and wasn't very smart in relationships..i got pregnant once when i was 18 and had a miscarriage..when i got married and we decided we wanted to have a baby before he left for afghanistan i was worried that it wouldnt happen in the short time i wanted it to so i ordered something called fertility blend for women and i took it for about a month and then found out i was pregnant. I'm only 23 so it just could have been a coincidence or fate (whatever you want to call it) but its worth a shot and it only cost like 30 bucks i think.

  • how did he determine she was ok? Did he do a HSG to look for malformations in her uterus? Did he check her for blood clotting disorders? Autoimmune issues? How about her insulin levels? If she did not have good extensive workup, then she needs to go se an RE for a second option. That doesn't mean she automatically needs expensive fertility treatments, but the RE will be able to order the right tests to see if there is an underlying medical condition causing her not to be able to get pregnant, and insurance companies will cover medical testing for conditions that can cause infertiltity

  • She needs to have her husband checked out as well. Then they can be reffered to a fertility specialist to help them.

  • I tracked my ovulation using a basal thermometer and the tools on fertilityfriend.com
    if she's healthy then the timing of intercourse might just be off... also agree that the guy needs to be checked out too
