Need some help: There are several items. Start with your partners sperm count, a visit to an OB for an exam (look for structural hindrances) and hormone levels. A good way to tract hormone levels is to follow salivary hormone levels for a month (Genova Diagnostics).

My partner and i are trying to get pregnant. I've had one miscarriage. What are some things i can do so this doesn't happen again?

Sorry to hear: The rate of miscarriage is 15%...This is not low. Assuming your miscarriage occured in the 1st trimester the likelhood of you getting pregnant and carriying the child to term with the next pregnancy is >75%...We do not recommend a formal evaluation until 2-3 losses have occurred. Speak to your obgyn for detail. The odds are heavily in your favor that you will go on to have a live birth. ...Read more

Slow motility and over 35 woman wants to get pregnant via help from fertility doc vs. Trying on own. What would top 3 things you would do to help?

See an MD: If you have tried to conceive naturally and you have not had luck, then it is likely that the decreased motility (which is probably the most important component of the semen analysis) is the problem.
