Well, I'm guessing you don't want or need a detailed biochemical explanation, but it does seem clear from much experience, that stress can reduce fertility --- some women can even lose their periods during times of severe stress. A month is of course a short time to be trying for a pregnancy ; but it would be worth seeing a counsellor to work on eliminating stress so far as possible, and finding better ways of handling whatever stress remains. And stress leads top anxiety and muscle tensions which can easily lead to cramps and various other pains. I'm sure if you can learn some relaxation, you can rather enjoy the process of trying, and become pregnant calmly and pleasantly rather than as part of a grimly determined struggle.
