Losing Hope Need Success Stories

Here's my story: my fiance and I are both 21 years old and we have been having unprotected s_x for about a year, and I've never gotten pregnant. Now, we are young so we have no problem "doing it" ALOT. We aren't exactly TRYING, but we're not preventing it either. WE definetly want children and if I fall pregnant we would be happy! I'm just concerned (terrified, actually) that something could be wrong with me. i don't understand why I can't get pregnant. I have VERY regular periods. Would it help to track my ovulation (CM. etc.) even though we have s_x alot? I recently stopped smoking and cut back on caffeine, but he still smokes and also smokes pot. Is there something wrong with me? has this happened to anyone else and have they gotten pregnant? I can't afford expensive infertility treatments... :(

I would try charting and you could get some ovulation predicter tests. And I think your boyfriend needs to stop smoking pot. I know I would not like that around my baby. Good luck,

A simple sperm a___lysis from your fiance would probably be a start... next to stop smoking pot of course. Dr.s usually start testing the man because the test are fairly easy and inexpensive. Once they have ruled out the man then they will recommend some blood work for you and so on. Good luck.

Lol ladies, give the man a break. He's not out there murdering people, he just smokes pot. Sheesh! I'm sure he's not planning on having a toke in the nursery for crying out loud. Emily, here's the thing about smoking pot or smoking in general, it will only effect fertility if your fiance already suffers from low/borderline sperm count or poor sperm quality. If he has good sperm production, the effect of the pot (and it definitely can reduce sperm quant_ty/quality) shouldn't impact your chances to conceive. dh has low count so I've done my research on this. But the only way to know this is to do a s____n a___lysis. And as Austynsmommy says, start charting or using opk's. YOu can have all the s_x in the world but if you're not having it at the right time, it's purely recreational if you know what i mean! Good luck, don't be disheartened. You're still so young...loads of fertile years ahead of you yet!

No judement here on the pot, but smoking pot does WAY decrease a mans sperm count, so if you guys really want to conceive, he has got to give it up. You should try to figure out when you are ovulating so you know when your target days are. If you have a normal cycle, it will be exactly inbetween your periods, and you'll notice egg white type discharge. Start having unprotected s_x about 2 days before that starts and keep doing it! After a few months of tracking when you are ovulating, you'll know when it is about to start.
