  • Sometimes it's just a timing problem. Start charting your cycles. Get the book Taking Chcarge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. It will teach you everything about it :)

  • Did you confirm that you are ovulating? Sometimes you have have positive OPKs and still not ovulate... generally checking progesterone at 7 dpo via blood test is able to tell you if you are ovulating. Are you charting your cycles? At what point in your cycle are you ovulating? Do you have an adequate luteal phase (length of time between ovulation and menstruation?) 14 days is average, anything less than 12 may impair fertility, and anything under 10 will definitely impair fertility. I would also recommend the Taking Charge of Your Fertility book by Toni Weschler as a good start to troubleshooting your cycles. If you chart a few you may see something pop up that gives you some insight. I hope you get a BFP soon!

  • Start by figuring out when your most fertile days are. Have sex then. Also, figure out if there's a lot of stress going on in your life. If you're stressed, it could also take a toll on becoming pregnant.
