    Hi Countrygirl,

    If you have been trying for three years and your ob/gyn you are fine, the problem could lie with your partner.

    However the first step in trying to conceive is figuring out when your "Fertility Window" is.

    This is the time span before ovulation occurs when you are the most fertile.

    There are a number of ways to figure out when ovulation occurs.

    Have a look at our article here:
    ---> Fastest way to get pregnant; The Fertility Window

    Then there are quite a lot of other factors, if combined, that significantly influence both male and femal fertility.

    For example are you or your partner a regular coffee or tea drinker?

    Just 2 cups a day could already affect you and your partners fertility.
    (For women it affects the receptiveness of the uterus and for men it affects the sperm motility.)

    More of these "small" but significant factors are for example:

    • Previous birth control usage? Could take a while to reverse those effects
    • Alcohol Consumption is a no no... (Both of you)
    • Diet (For example don't eat spinach and peas as it works as a contraceptive)
    • Weight (Both over- and under-weight is bad)
    • Nicotine (again a tough one to break but crucial... again affects both male and female fertility)
    • The lubricant used (If used, keep it natural)
    • Use of hot tubs and long baths is bad for both of you
    • A lot more...

    It really requires a balance of quite a few things.

    We have a few articles with way more detail haha about these and more tips that you can find here:
    ---> Get Pregnant Naturally Tips

    If you have some money to spend and want a step-by-step guide for this holistic approach:
    ---> Step-by-step e-book Recommendation

    Either way, I wish you best of luck and stay strong and keep trying.
