    Having trouble concieving
    An_249227 posted:
    I am 28 years old my husband is 36. We have been trying to conceive for the last 14 months. I am very regular always 28/29 days and I have been using ovulation test kits every month and I'm always ovulating on day 11 of my cycle. I have had blood tests and ultra sounds and everything came back normal and this was like 8 months ago. My husband has also done his part and gotten a sperm count which also came back normal. My husband also already has a son! Just wondering where we go from here it's extremely frustrating that we still aren't pregnant! Both my mom and my sister where extremely fertile and basically got pregnant first try for every pregnancy! Any advise would be great!

    Time to see an REI doctor (Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility). They can review your blood work, etc. They may get a special x-ray called an HSG to make sure your tubes are open. Then they will discuss ways to increase your chances of conceiving.
