Me and my husband have been trying to have a baby for two months with no success. We have been together ten years and want to start our family. Any advise?

You should try charting your ovulation. There is a certain time in a womans cycle where she is considered fertile, durng ovulation. The rest of the time there is a very unlikely chance you will get pregnant. There are some sites on the web that have free ovulation calendars. In those you track your bbt, cervical mucas, cervical position, and other indicators. They will show you step by step how to do the charting. Most docs only consider doing fertility work up's if you have been ttc for a year or longer with no luck. Hope this helps!

Yeah, I have tried that. I just hope it doesn't take a long time. We have been wanting a baby for so long, but things keep coming up and now we are ready I just hope it happens soon. I get depressed when my period begins. Like this time I was 4 days late. Thanks so much. I needed someone to talk to. I am new to this stuff.

My husband and I have been trying for 5 years with nothing so if you have only been trying for 2 months I would not worry they say that if you try for a year or more with nothing then start worrying.

you kno what u should have sex everyday after your period then you know you arent missing days that could get u pregnant, i have got some ovulation tests to help me but this is the best way my period and temperature goes up n down n there is no pattern so i am having sex with my partner all the time now, i think after a year of trying n being nearly 19 youd be sick of it too

Chart EVERYTHING! From day one of your cycle, chart everything and bring it all to your dr every time.

I agree with most everyone else, chart everything you can during your cycle, this is the best. I have read that having sex every day is NOT recommended. This actually can affect the replenishment of the sperm, and may end up making the problem worse. Every other day or every three days is ideal, since the sperm can live an average of 72 hours in the uterus. I also think you should give it some time... we have been trying for just 2 months also, and it really isn't that long. Give it a few more months, and best of luck. Keep me posted! :)

S, I know what your going through. My husband and I have been ttc for 8 mos. now. I never thought something so simple as "getting pregnant" would be so difficult. We are trying everything. I am charting my cycles, using the clearblue ovulation tests, using the Pre-seed lubricant, dh is wearing the boxers, we both take our multi-vitamins, we don't smoke or drink, we eat right and exercise, we have sex when ovulating, I've even gone as far as getting myself into the "bicycle" position after sex,(practically standing on my head). The doctors say that they don't see any reason why we won't be able to conceive considering our ages and life styles. It just takes longer for some couples than others. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you. The only factor that I can see making it more difficult for us is that my husband's sperm count/motility were on the low side in the "normal" range. So that's why he's taking the mult-vitamin high in selenium, zinc, and vitamin C. I read that these vitamins help increase the amount and motility. But the doctors still say it should happen for us. I hope that that helps a little bit. And just know that your not alone. We're all frusturated right along with you. Baby dust to you!


Me too - June 24

We have trying to conceive since I had given birth last September. I am 40 yrs old and it took 3 months of trying while taking my temperature with the basal thermometer. I know its harder as you get older and that your walls get thicker. What else can I do besides timing it within 10 - 14 days after the start of my period. Help???
