Hi,

I'm new to trying to conceive too.

There is probably nothing that you did wrong. IN fact, the chances are only about 20% that a fertile couple will fall pregnant any one cycle. It is not abnormal for you to have to try a few cycles to be successful in falling pregnant (unfortunately it doesn't happen straight away, besides for some women who fall pregnant first cycle).

Don't give up hope. If you have a regular cycle, are charting ovulation and having sex before and during ovulation then your chances are good.

Also try not to stress and you can always have sex every few days throughout your cycle. Sperm can live in a womans body for up to 5 days, ovulation is only a few days so even just before ovulation there is a chance to fall pregnant. Also one thing Ive read quite a bit is to not try and have sex every day, but every second or third day as it allows the sperm to be stronger, than running out the sperm supply by doing the deed every single day, if that makes sense.

GOod luck, hopefully better luck next cycle!
