Timing: Timing is the most important thing when trying to get pregnant. Most women ovulate about 14 days before their period. It is best to start about 3 days before ovulation and continue for 1-2 d after you think it has happened, once a day. If not pregnant after a year, it is time to seek help unless the cycles are irregular. Low t in men can be a problem but giving testosterone can make it worse. ...Read more

One possibility: Ask your physician which of your white cell types is low (lymphocytes or neutrophils). These are really meaningful only if the absolute count of one of the other is way-low.

Hope your dreams come true. ...Read more

But, you could still get pregnant after only taking three of the pills in the pak. ...Read more

Can being on a birth control pill 10 years slow down getting pregnant when you stop taking them? Will it take me longer to get pregnant? I am 28 years

It should not: Most women return to fertility within a few months after stopping birth control pills. Once your cycles are regular off the pills then you should be able to get pregnant during one of your ovulation periods. Make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin now to prevent neural tube defects in your baby. ...Read more
