  • A little more info is needed here: how old are you? Do you have regular periods and have you been tracking your ovulation? What is your diet like? Are you overweight or underweight? Are you taking prenatal vitamins? Is your partner healthy or does he have any medical problems? Have you taken any birth control in the past before trying to get pregnant? Infertility has many causes, and often simple things can be done to give you a better chance. Stress is the number one factor, and this can be hard to deal with. An obgyn would be able to rule out medical factors like fibroids, endo, anovulation, blocked tubes and the like. If you could provide as much info as you can it will be easier to offer you suggestions!Best wishesDOM

  • well, i am only 21 and i have my period regularly. what do you mean tracking my ovulation? i'm sorry i didn't know that.maybe im overwieght. i weighted 151 pounds and has a height of 5'4". i didn't take any pill. actually i haven't done any birth control. i didn't do anything. i do not know if my partner has any medical problem because we didn't try to go to an obgyn. i'm afraid to go to. that's why i joined this forum to have more information. thank you for replying. i hope i can still get more information from you! thank you!

  • When I say tracking ovulation, I mean to check when you are ovulating each month, and then try to have intercourse right before, during and after that ovulation time. You can get some books from the library on infertility and prenatal women's health. I think this would be helpful. Do either you or your partner smoke, drink, or take any recreational drugs? I still think it would be worthwhile to get a check up from a gyno to rule out anything functional...how are your periods? Are they heavy and painful? Do you have any lower abdominal pain? Lastly, how is your stress level? Your partner's? Stress plays a HUGE role in fertility. Being overweight can make it harder as well - do you exercise and eat well? These are all things to help improve your chances of having a baby. Prenatal vitamins are a must. Best of luck to you.Best wishesDOM
