Make an appointment with a doctor who specializes in infertility, and make sure BOTH you and your husband are checked.

They will have all sorts of things like timing and temperature things and optimal positions and the like.

Good luck!

Pick up a copy of Taking Charge of your Fertility. You also might want to check out Both of these are full of great advice to increase your chance of conceiving. Good luck!

Brittany, having just read your profile, I must take a minute to say that you are awfully young. Please be sure you and your man are ready for the HUGE commitment that comes with having a baby.

After 1 year of trying w/out success it is time for a visit to your OB/GYN (obstetrician/gynecologist) doctor. After two years, you are overdue. Hopefully you have an OB/GYN. If not, contact your primary care doctor’s office to see who they would recommend.

Best wishes.

Like others say, visit the doctor. But also remember it is a process that takes time—if you’re ready for a kid, don’t give up! Have a very serious talk with your man to make sure you are both fully devoted to the idea. And to some extent, be patient. Getting pregnant takes time sometimes. I read an article recently that parents these days expect to get pregnant much faster than they did in the old days. You’ve worked at it a while and should definitely see your OBGYN, but also remember that patience is a big part of it. To some extent, pregnancy is a waiting game with a bit of logic and luck attached.

SuperMouse is right. You have plenty of time to start a family. Enjoy your youth first, then there will be time to think about kids.

Talk to my wife—she can get pregnant when we walk past each other in the hallway.

If you are under let’s say 28—I beg you not to procreate, get a puppy for pete’s sake?

News flash folks…... allengreen and I agree once again!!!

“Taking Charge of Your Fertility” is a great book like SuperMouse recommends…after over two years of trying, I finally got pregnant by using the (expensive!) Clear Plan Fertility Monitor. The unit itself at the time was maybe $100—$150? and the sticks to use with it were expensive too. But I found out by using that, that my fertile day was around the 18th of the month and not the 14th like everyone wants you to believe. I was pregnant within 4 months of using it. Give it a try if you’ve both gone to the doctors and find out you are okay. Good luck Brittany!

Oh, and let me add that for my second child, it only took 2 months because I knew more about my cycle.

Brittany, do you really want to take on the responsibility of a baby at your age? I mean, your life will NEVER be the same! It’s a lifetime responsibility and commitment. Have you taken care of babies before? It’s exausting, and once you’ve got one, you’ve got one for good.
Are you married, in a committed relationship? Will you have help? Have you really thought this through?

you buy a test that tells you when your ovulating. and if you have sex during that time it should help increase your chances

Sex is a good place to start, though I would recommend doing so at such a young age.
