Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having intercourse during fertile days and probable ovulation time (time of egg release from ovary) can result in pregnancy. There are many factors involved in a successful pregnancy. Hormonal issues, problems with ovary and ovulation (egg release from ovary), uterine problems, cervical or vaginal infections if ruled out then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist for examination (to look for signs of pregnancy changes in body) and getting a blood HCG test done (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
If pregnancy gets ruled out, then you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive (since you have not been pregnant even after unprotected intercourse). Hormonal issues, problems with ovary and ovulation (egg release from ovary), uterine problems, cervical or vaginal infections should be ruled out for you. For your partner, semen analysis to rule out infections and to confirm the quality and quantity of sperms produced should be done. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be done to help you get pregnant. For a regular menstrual cycle of 28 days, fertile days would lie between day 8-16 of the cycle taking day 1 as first day of bleeding. Combine checking cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. All the best.
