We can fix this: It took a lot of courage for you to write this, and you also realize that it's senseless. You're a very strong candidate for successful treatment by talk and learning ways to control your brain so it stops playing tricks on you. Get with your physician and ask about cbt or some other way of reprogramming yourself to think useful thoughts in a world where, while bad things happen, there's more good.

By the way... as a single mom you've already proved you're a person of great resourcefulness and stamina. You have much to offer others in a world where bad things do happen ... and people survive them thanks to the goodness of the people around them. Until you start your treatments, hold that thought, and good luck.

Consanguinity: Is the big fancy term. When close relaties marry the genetic pool can be weakened and their offspring can have issues. There can also e genetic mutations that affect the children. Your most informative answer on being closely related and that causing the fits is to see a genetic specialist....To make sure that is the cause.

Time for consult: If you have been trying for this long without success it is time to schedule a visit with a fertility center. Both you and your partner need an evaluation looking for fixable conditions. If nothing is found they can educate you on alternative methods to establish a pregnancy.

It comes naturally: If you are ejaculating in her vagina, you are doing what you need in order to become a father. Really, in spite of much discussion, there is no magical technique for intercourse that will make conception more likely. I hope also that you want, rather feel that you "need", to become parents. Best wishes, and i hope that the two of you get what you want.

A 25-year-old female asked about a 22-year-old female:

Hi doctors!what cause a problem between to married couple staying together for 8years without having children is it incompatibility ?

Confusing question: You are to vague with your question to comment specifically.Do you mean if the couple has unprotected regular sex for 8 years without having kids? That would not be an incompatibility, that would likely be a fertility problem in one, the other or both.Evaluation of both at a fertility center would provide answers.
