Don't try too hard: Relax. Monitor your ovulatory cycle or purchased a home ovulation test. Give you husband a 1-2 2 day "build -up" vacation, since frequency ejaculation could lower sperm count. I would suggest a position where you are on your back, with pillows under your hips and your legs resting on his should: maintain that position for about 5-10 minutes after ejaculation. ...Read more

CD 1 is the first day of full period flow. Most women ovulate on CD 14, and if they don't get pregnant have a period 14 days later. Most fertile days, though, are CD12-13. You may notice clear mucous discharge. That's good for sperm. ...Read more

Relax & keep trying: The average time it takes for women under 35 to conceive is 6 months; no need to worry unless it's more than a year. The optimal time to try is from 4 days before ovulation until the day of ovulation. The herb rhodiola improves fertility. Make sure you're not hypothyroid. Start a prenatal now- it's most important the first few weeks of pregnancy. If not successful check your partner's sperm count. ...Read more

More info needed:
Hello! Thanks for your question!
In general, I would not consider you have infertility issues until you have tried to conceive for over a year without success. If it's been over that long, you'll want to have an evaluation for infertility. Also, your husband may want to get a sperm count to see that could be the problem.
I hope this helps! ...Read more
