Been trying to get pregnant for 9 months with no luck?

December 10th, 2009 by admin

I’m 21, almost 22. My hubby is 23. I got tested and they told me everything looked good, so does that mean that it’s him that’s causing the problem? I’m only asking because it’s so stressful and breakup on realtionship because he’s going overboard. Also if it matters, we have sex anywhere from 1-4 times a day.

Answer:

It can take a perfectly healthy couple up to a year to concieve. My husband and i have both been cleared by our drs, we are both healthy and have no fertility issues, yet we have been ttc for 17 months now, well its been 17 months since i stopped taking the pill, BUT it took about 10 cycles for my body to regulate, so my dr told us to count from when my periods were regular again. Are you testing for ovulation, charting CM or temps? Any of these can help you pinpoint ovulation, and when you BD closer to ovulation, you will maximize your chances of conception. Also, maybe cutting back on how many times a day you have sex, it’s normally recommended to have sex once a day or every other day when TTC so you allow your hubby some time to rebuild his supply. Good luck!

 

There is a simple at home test you can give your husband to test his sperm count.  If he has a low sperm count it could be causing your fertility problems and a follow-up visit to the fertility doc may be in order. Testing the sperm count and concentration is usually the first thing that is checked for male infertility.  You can order a home test kit below and perform it  in the privacy of your own home. Click on “Baby Start” ad. Go get tested now !

Men can have fertility problems just as well as women.  Lots of things effect a male’s sperm count. At 23 age would not be a factor for him but there may be biological or environmental issues causing it.  The list of possibilities includes hot tubs, smoking, substance abuse, genetic abnormalities and many more.

    It might effect sperm Quality if you sex too often, 1-4 times a day won’t work. try stop for a week then start at middle of your period circle. Also, stress would not do any good. Good luck.

    having sex three to four times a day will affect the sperm quality.you will cover your chances of conceiving if you have sex every other day and then everyday during ovulation time.it doesnt necessarily mean that your husband is having the problem if you do not conceive,mebbe its just that you ppl are missing out your fertile window.and stressing doesnt help.so try relaxing.i knw its better said than done.but i have heard a lot of ppl getting pregnant when they give up and when they least expect it.so try nt to make it too specific as to baby making sex ,instead have fun. :)good luck :)i hope you get your BFP soon 🙂

    1-4 times a day might be too much if he’s got a low count, but he should get a semen test done to see what his count it.

    You would want to have him ejaculate only every second day if his count it slow.

    good luck on getting pregnant, it’s a long road, i know i’ve been at this for 3 years now.

    well there is your problem, if you’re having sex 1-4 times a day that’s wayyy to much, you’re not give him enough time to build up his sperm count, and the sperm that is going inside you could be damaged or deffective. For a healthy and good chance of conciving you should be having sex every 2 or 3 days because sperm can stay alive inside you for about 2-3 days. Something you might find really interesting if you have not already seen it is The great sperm race! it’s so informative! go to youtube type it in and enjoy. Goodluck =)

    Other things to consider:

    1. Sperm swim , but they aren’t speedboats. Keeping horizontal for a few minutes after sex gives the sperm a better chance when they dont have to mountain climb while you are standing/walking.

    2. Even though hubby is a young guy, it wouldn’t hurt to take a saw palmetto extract supplement. It keeps the prostate working well and more flexible, so less resistance for the swimmers.

    3. Every other day gives a better chance of success than 1-4 times a day, as previous posters mentioned.

    4. Male performance can also be reduced by high blood sugar levels. Avoid sweets or big meals before going for it! Stress and cortisone will also reduce testosterone levels.

    Hope this helps!
