Getting Pregnant (Overview)

Access to a doc?: 85-90% of totally normal couples conceive with unprotected sex in 1 year, whether they are trying or not, so "infertility" is defined in medicine by failing to conceive in 1 year. By this reasoning you (or your partner) are highly likely to have a problem slowing you down. I don't know how access to fertility care is in Canada but highly recommend seeing a doctor to start problem solving. GL! ...Read more

Maybe not naturally.: If you have had six years of primary infertility, you need to seek care with a reputable in vitro fertilization lab in your area. You may have blocked tubes from prior pid/salpingitis, uterine anomaly or trying the wrong way/time. In any case a visit with a specialist in infertility should help answer your questions and get you pregnant (naturally, or with assistance). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily. ...Read more
