What can we do to have better luck of getting pregnant? How often should we have sex? Can low t make it hard to get me pg?

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

If my white blood cell is low does that stop ne from getting pregnant? I beeb trying but im always spotting.? Help I want a child

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. The first thing that pops into my mind to rule out is lupus -- it famously makes it difficult to carry a pregnancy, and can lower the count of one of your white cell types. This may be a heads up. Hope your dreams come true. ...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

I'm 18 years old I have taken contraceptive pill 3 times, will this effect my ovaries or will I get low chance in getting pregnant?

Unanswerable: Unfortunately I am not sure what you are really asking. If you are taking your birth control as prescribed you can assume you are protected from pregnancy after the first month on the pills. The birth control does affect your cycles and ovulation. But, you could still get pregnant after only taking three of the pills in the pak. ...Read more

Depends on variables: Used properly, a condom can prevent up to 99% of pregnancies.

If you are interested of maximizing protection, 2 forms of bc are always better than relying on one. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant from precum, and what are the chances of getting pregnant from precum?

Here are some. ..: The odd to conceive from per-cum is probably zero, but no one can guarantee to say it in 100% manner so to serve political correctness and professional self-protection since there is still few sperms in pre-cum. Nonetheless, do HPT in 1 wk after missing period and repeat it in 1 wk if the 1st was (-) and still in doubt. More, seek pro-evaluation & counseling. ...Read more

No, but...: Couples can go up to a year w/o conceiving and still have nothing wrong w/either of them. The bigger question is why do u want to have children? I would discuss it with as many people as possible before reaching that decision; as it is a very serious question with permanent effects. It might be best to wait a few years before considering the question again. ...Read more

Reassurance Trap?: Is this a thought (fear) that's getting stuck in ur head ; causes u 2 feel very anxious ; worried? If so, then there's no point in any of us giving u a logical answer b/c it won't reassure u. Pregnancy can occur only if sperm actually find their way in2 the vagina.

I'm 32 years old and it being a year trying to get pregnant, I want to know if hysteroscopy can help me getting pregnant?

Yes: Hysteroscopy can definitely help you with evaluation of your ability to conceive. Sometimes there are septations or tissue curtains in the uterus that prevent pregnancy from occurring and a hysteroscopy can detect that. Also, at hysteroscopy, the tubes can be evaluated to make sure there is flow or patency of the tubes (combined with laparoscopy). If you've been trying for a year, I recommend ...Read more
