Welcome to ehealthforum,
A successful pregnancy depends on number of factors. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for 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. 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 should be done to rule out infections and to confirm the quality and quantity of sperms produced. 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. Maintain diet rich in foods containing zinc for better maturation of egg and sperms.
