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.

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

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?

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

I started taking centrum for women. Will this increase my chances of getting pregnant? I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years.

By this reasoning you (or your partner) are highly likely to have a problem slowing you down.
