Trying to conceive

Me and my fiance are ttc but with very little luck. We have been trying since November. Are we not having sex at the right time or could it be something else that's stopping me conceiving. I am on my period at the moment when and many times should we try for conception to happen thanks

Hi do u mean Nov last year or this year? If it's this year I wouldn't worry as it can sometimes take a few months, it took me 7 with this one but I am 34, also there is only a relatively short time in the month that u can actually conceive so timing Is crucial.

I am 28 and it took me 7 months to fall pregnant which is pretty normal so if you only started ttc last month then you need to give yourself time.
i would reccomend using ovulation tests so you know when the right time os. They say you usually ovulate on day 14 but for me it was day 19 so worth checking when the right time is for you each month.
good luck x

Oh my heavens no you're not too old! It can take time. I started ttc when I was 25. Had a miscarriages when I was 25 and 26...got pregnant at 28 and had my sweet little girl when I was 29.
Generally speaking they saying you are more likely to encounter complications with getting pregnant beyond 35 years of age.
If you have a "standard" 28 day cycle then you are likely to ovulated around day 14, but van often vary (as Ang mentions above). Ideally you want to have sex in the few days leading up to and day of ovulation. I got pregnant from sex 2-3 says before ovulating....those swimmers can live up to 3-5 days.
Be patient, it can take time. Good luck!!

Definitely not too old! At 35 things can slowly start to decline but not drastically. It took me 6 months to get pregnant with both my children, I was 32 with my 1st & 35 with my second. I would also recommend buying ovulation testing strips (very cheap on ebay or amazon) & keeping a chart of your cycles so you know when you ovulate as every woman is slightly different. You could also go to see your gp for a general health check. Good luck

I'm 27 and pregnant, my husbands just shy of 32, his parents were in their 40's...
Age (in your twenties and thirties) isn't a factor
