hi I have 3 kids from a previous relationship got pregnant very quickly with each one my partner has 2 kids from previous relationships both conceived very quickly we want one together but this time it's just not happening and wondering if it'll ever happen for us we have been trying for 10 months with no success my partner does have genital herpes and I've had a miscarriage before my last child who's coming up 12 months there's no fertility issues with either of us so why can't we get pregnant? All my friends are having babies and although I'm happy for them I find myself saying why not me we have sex Regularly during my fertile times even more so is there anyone else out there struggling to conceive with a new partner I'm on the verge of giving up n facing the fact that it's just not meant to be im looking for a little hope thank u in advance for any advice x

have you both been to see a doctor to see if they can give you any advice? Normally they will only help if you have been trying 12 months or 6 months if over 35.
Maybe giving up (going with the flow an relaxing might work for you, it does for some.
Otherwise some people say acupuncture and other remedies help. Maybe it's just not meant to be though

What about taking vitamin supplements if your levels are low.
Do you track your ovulation at all?I use an app called Ovia which gives me a rough guide. Also I use ovulation test kits similar to home preg tests. Think it's £2.99 for 5 at home bargains or can buy on eBay and other shops. Some women track their temperatures and vertical mucus. And they say sex every other day usually.
Drink plenty of water to give you better quality cervical mucus to carry the sperm
