Not Getting Pregnant After 6 Months Of Trying

by Vandana

Hi, I just completed my 35 yrs. And my husband is 40. He is diabetic and on medication. My hubby and I are trying to get pregnant since last 6 months, but no success. I get my periods regularly and my average cycle is 28 days. Usually I bleed for 3 days and on 4th day the flow is scanty. 12 yrs back I got conceived accidentally and had an abortion. Has that got anything to do with my pregnancy getting delayed? I want to conceive ASAP. Is it possible for me to get pregnant again? Any suggestion will be appreciated.



Hi Vadana,

Your previous termination of pregnancy is most likley not the cause of your difficulty to get pregnant now. In some rare cases having had a previous abortion can cause pelvic inflammation, scar tissue and even endometriosis. These conditions are often accompanied by symptoms, but not necessarily. It would be wise to see your doctor and talk about your previous history. He or she may recommend further testing like ultrasound and hormonal profile.

Honestly, you have been trying to conceive for only 6 months now, it is too early to assume that there is a problem.

Make sure you and your husband are having sex at the right time in order to maximize your chances of conception. The fertility guide will help you detect your most fertile days and how to do this effectively.

Consider taking fertility vitamins like FertiAid for Women with FertileCM. FertilAid for women is an all-natural fertility enhancing formula developed by Amos Grunebaum, MD/ObGyn who is a Leading Fertility Expert.

FertilAid for Women contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and herbal ingredients (such as Vitex Agnus Castus) to help restore hormonal balance and support overall reproductive wellness. Taken with FertileCM, your chances of conception will be greater as fertile cervical mucus during ovulation time is required to keep male sperm healthy and alive and to facilitate conception. Some women do not produce enough of this fertile mucus and for them conceiving becomes more difficult. Fertile cervical mucus contains swimming lanes for sperm so that they can reach the egg faster and in healthy conditions.

If your husband has diabetes, his sperm should be analyzed regularly as there is a link between diabetes and male infertility. A study published in the journal of human reproduction in 2007, discovered that men with diabetes had lower sperm quality. Specifically, the number of sperm with DNA damage was higher in men with diabetes than in the control group. Scientific literature suggests that antioxidants improve male fertility by reducing oxidative damage to sperm.

I would recommend male fertility vitamins like FertilAid to support his sperm quality. FertiAid for men contains important antioxidants that help maintain sperm DNA healthy a prevent damage and poor sperm quality.

This male fertility-enhancing formula has been clinically proven to improve sperm quality in trying-to-conceive men. In 2009, a study published in the American Society of Andrology reported that FertialAid for men was effective in improving sperm parameters in all infertile men who undertook the study. This powerful dietary supplement combines vitamins, antioxidants, and a blend of herbal ingredients, as well as the amino acid, L-Carnitine.

Also, make sure to avoid junk food, stress, smoking, alcohol and coffee. Follow a healthy diet and avoid chemicals like pesticides in fruits & vegetables, hormones in dairy and meat, and food additives.

I hope this helps you.

Fertility Blessings!
