Trying to conceive

For some reason unknown to me I thought getting pregnant would be easy. Wrong! (in my case)

Any suggestions would be helpful 


Thank you

How long have you been trying? Are you tracking your cycle to help find ovulation days?

Several months we have been trying and have become unsuccessful. I do have a tracking calender

Around here a fertility specialist won't see you until at least a year of trying and no success. I would start with tracking your cycle and making sure you are doing the baby dance around ovulation.

It took us nearly two years with a loss in there to conceive our 2nd. We finally got pregnant after we stopped trying.:) Patience is hard but helpful when hoping for a baby.

If you are tracking that's a good start. Have you tried OPKs? They can be very helpful too.

My suggestion is to just relax. I know that's not easy to do when you really want to have a baby but it does help.

If after a year of trying, you aren't pregnant I would make an appt for you and your husband to have some testing done. The initial testing is easy. Blood tests for you and a sperm sample from your husband.

Good luck.

I never stressed over it. When we were trying, we'd have sex every day or every other day for a couple of weeks, and I got pregnant. But I also was of the mindset that if I got pregnant it was okay and if I didn't get pregnant it was okay. Prolonged stress can have an effect on ovulation and implantation.

Relax and a few months isn't a long time really. It happens when you least expect it. Don't have sex every day also.

It took us a few tries, too.

The month that I started using the ovulation test strips, we conceived. I can''t say for certain the two are related, but we certainly were more...active when I was for certain ovulating.

Good luck to you!

The advice to have sex about every two days is good: it maximizes the sperm count...

How old are you?

IF after a year...then see a dr.  Have sex every couple of days.
