    I have been married for 9 months now. The only person that I have ever been with was my husband. We have been trying to get pregnant for the past 6 months and we have been trying to have sex on the fertile days and also in between and I am not getting pregnant.
    I went to my GYNO and she check me and said I am okay and give me some prenate vitamins.

    I am so worried. Is anyone have been or is going through the same.

    How do you know what are your fertile days?

    That was a misconception of mine (the apps dont work) and I got the ClearBlueEasy Fertility Monitor - now its pricey but my OB highly recommended it. It might just be that your calendar is off by a few days.

    Also, if you are over 30/35, take your hubby in with you to get a Sperm Analysis - just to make sure you are playing with a full deck. Best of Luck!!

    like that test also. it does get pricey so i also track mine through the webmd ovulation calender and cervical mucous along with tests.

    i did go online after a while and found the highest rated ovulation tests and bought in bulk.
    after the first few years it seemed to make more sense lol.

    the calender helps me keep track of whrther my cycle is running on time also because i always seem to not pay attention if it was off a day or two and in ovulation tracking thats a big difference.

    also i think all men should be tested.

    my hubby was tested 2 years into trying at the age of 25 and came back with a severel low count like it should be between 20 and 30 million and he had like 3000 and they were morphed and slow. so you never know its soo easy for them to get tested (wink wink) just a little embarrasing but they can suck it up and perform this one small task lol
