Hi desi120,

As dipens mentioned, have you been tracking your ovulation cycle so that you can pinpoint your fertile days (those on which you are most likely to conceive)? Here are some tips for charting your cycle that you may find helpful. Our Ovulation Calendar tool can help you keep track of your cycle and.

Have you had a prepregnancy check up with your doctor or ob/gyn? Here is a prepregnancy to-do list -- it covers things like vitamins you should be taking, diet and lifestyle changes you may consider making, and the importance of prepregnancy health checkups. These fertility boosting tips might also be helpful as well as these suggestions on how to increase your chances of becoming pregnant.

If you have been doing all of the above things with no luck for more than a year, both you and your boyfriend might want to see a reproductive endocrinologist or a fertility specialist to check hormone levels, etc. and to receive any fertility help you may need.

I hope you find the above information helpful!

Best wishes,
Atti
