Why am I not pregnant yet?

I've been trying for over 6 months with my hubby. We even consulted my gyne to determine when is the best time to try for a baby. But today, I just got my period. And I'm just wondering why.

Answers:

Any number of issues. Start with using an ovulation calculator and then an ovulation test kits. It may take a couple of cycles to get this, but you can really only get pregnant in a 4-5 day window during ovulation. If you are not charting this and then having sex during that time, your chances of conception are basically zero. Next, work on both of your health. Both of you should be off of medications, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, etc. AND you should be taking prenatal vitamins. Finally, you and your husband getting a checkup and consider having him get a sperm count done.

6 months is not a long time, it took me almost 3 years when I was young fit and healthy- sex every 4 days and there will always be sperm there when you ovulate as sperm lives for 5 days inside you, Good Luck

The problem is, a doctor can't tell you when to have sex because a doctor can't predict when you'll ovulate. And that's the most likely cause - not having sex at the appropriate time.

A doctor should have told you to chart your symptoms and basal body temp (not an app, manually charting) and time sex accordingly.

6 months is a bit longer than the statistical 'average' for actively trying couple -- but still well within the normal range.

Unless you have some specific reason to think there is a fertility issue (very irregular or absent periods, a history of PID or pelvic surgery, etc.) just be patient. Unless you are over 35 or HAVE a specific reason to suspect a problem, anything up to a year is considered normal, and doctors won't do any testing until then.

Could just be statistics. There is only up to about a 25% chance each month of getting pregnant. Some people obviously get pregnant the first months, others take longer.

After 6 months using the 25% figure (which could be on the high side, I've seen 15% to 25% tossed around), the chances of NOT having gotten pregnant is nearly 20%.

I'd give it a few more months before getting checked out that everything is working on both of you.
