Trying to get pregnant

I am not on the pill for 4 months now. I know when my ovulating times are we have been given a schedule. We are trying very actively, 3 times a week but I am still not pregnant. Is there something wrong or are we doing something wrong or does it just take longer.

I am 29 and my husband is 33 can it be our age?

My last ovulating date was the 20th of January 2009. How long after can I test to know if I am pregnant?

Please help!

Hi Susan

It took 9 months for me to fall pregnant... I know how frustrated you are, but hang in there, it will hapen on it' s own time. I know it is difficult, but you need to put it out of your mind.

Most gynae' s will tell you to wait one year, before doing tests or taking fertility drugs.

I know that there are people out there that go off the pill for only 2 weeks, and then they are pregnant, but it varies from person to person.

Good luck!
