Why Can't I get pregnant?

Hi Moms~ Question!

I'm 18, Clean of any STD'S.. &Have a pap once or twice a year-

I have been trying to conceive the past 5 months and I'm still not pregnant..

Not on any Birth Control, However I was on the Depo Shot for a year 1 year ago.. I got my period back about 4 months after the shot and have been getting them regularly monthly ever since... I have sex almost every day once a day on a daily basis with my boyfriend unprotected... We know nothing is wrong with him because he has a 2 year old.(Not my kid) I have been on a healthy diet and taking prenatal pills the past 2 months

Any Advice or reasoning to why I am not conceiving? It seems as if everyone and their dog is getting pregnant, I didn't realize it would be so hard!

Thank you In advance!

Go on vacation. LOL

It worked for me.

Maybe you are stressing out a bit too much about getting pregnant. Chill, calm down, relax and just have fun. I know, not as easy as it sounds is it? But, at this point, thats the only advice i can really give you. Enjoy having hubby to yourself while you can, You won't have Near as much 'Me/Us Time' after you achieve your goal.

Get away from the house, you don't have to go far. Just go somewhere the two of you can get away from everyday life for a while. Definately don't put too much emphasis on getting pregnant.

DH & I got pg and I MC'd right before our first anniversary, I stressed and guilted myself for years after. I was so focused on wanting a baby, like it would prove my womanhood or something. It wasn't till I stopped blaming myself & let go (I gave it up to God), I got pg w/ DD1. I personally know what it's like to struggle w/ infertility, due to stress, so I know it's not as easy as it sounds.

Second time around, DH and I went on little vacation, and came back w/ a bun in the oven so to speak. LOL

So, that's my advice. Don't focus so much on getting pg, enjoy being w/ DH & take a little vacation.

Good Luck!!
