  • Thats kind of hard not knowing your history or what you have been doing? It would help if we knew these things

  • Are you using lubricants? A lot of people don't realize it (I didn't for a while), but most lubricants actually harm sperm. Stress, not having sex on the right days (around the time you ovulate), oh there are lots of things that could be preventing it from happening. I think we need more specific information to better help!

  • Maybe your fertility or him. Possibly not doing it at the right time when the egg drops to be fertilized. Are you doing it when you are ovulating?

  • I found out I wasn't ovulating when my thyroid was very low. You might consider getting a checkup with bloodwork if it has been a long time trying.

  • there can be SEVERAL things!!!
    do you have a cycle like clockwork?
    do you chart and KNOW that you ovulate EVERY month?
    and you also need to be off the pill 3 months before even really trying.

    -Luteal Phase Deficency
    -Chromonsonal Abnormalities

    There are many more things...Alot of problems can be fixed.
