Baby-Making 101: Here's what you do: day#1: period starts. Day#14 is ovulation day. Have sex on days 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 scheduled. He must wear boxers and be well hydrated. He must only ejaculate into you on prescribed sex days (no masturbating inbetween) to increase volume and count. Sperm will live 48h inside you, so optimize your delivery of sperm in your fertile week. Relax and have fun so your body can ovulate.

Timing?: One possibility might be timing. You can download an ovulation predictor calendar off the internet or purchase an ovulation predictor kit at your pharmacy to help with timing. Having vaginal sex around the time of ovulation is important.

"Weeding" out PG: Marijuana's active ingredient (THC) has a tendency to hang around and damage genetic material in sperm and eggs. Therefore , one month is not long enough to wait before attempting pregnancy. Pregnancy and motherhood are very incompatible with exogenous drug use (marijuana+) as the baby always "pays the price" for parents' "indiscretions." Eliminate drug use THEN consider future pregnancy.

Hmmm: It is normal to have more daicharge when you are pregnant but your symptoms are possibly consistent with a vaginal infection. An exam would be helpful.
