My boyfriend and i have been trying for a baby for 5 months now, and nothing. Theres some months i think im pregnant but then i get my period. Also, my period has been coming sooner and sooner, last period was 3 days early, this month was 9 days earlier. I had those ovulation tests but all came out negative. We have unprotected sex alot. Is there something wrong with me or him? Any tips?

I would go to your Doctor I have been having EXACTLY the same problem, trying for same amount of time too. My doctor has scheduled me in for some blood tests for detecting hormones during ovulation, (next ovulation roundabout start of November), to make sure I am ovulating normally - as I've been on pill for 13 years. I went on wedenesday thinking something wasn't right, was convinced I was pregnant but turns out I have torn a muscle, lol! x

That's odd, lol! Have you worked out how long your cycel is, etc? I believe you can work out when you are due to ovulate by counting from the first day of your period, for example,if you have a 28 day cycle,(my period usually arrives at almost same date evry month). So I count 21 days from 1st day of period, which gives me an idea of when I'm due to ovulate. Kinda hard to do though if your periods are all over the place,sounds as if there may be a chance of pregnancy if you haven't been as regular as usual, the month mine's wasn'y right, I was planning a suprose party for my Hubby, & evrything was going wrong so just put it down to stress. Have you had anything going on, or changed your diet/exercise routine etc? Good luck Smile xxx

Maybe look into herbal alternatives. That's what I did after founding out I had PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian syndrome). Evening primrose oil, fertile CM, or Vitex are good ones to research. Evening primrose worked for me, I was pregnant 5 months after trying it. Plus used ovulation tests, and drank raspberry leaf tea. I was told if I didn't pregnant within a year to be seen by fertility doctor. Hope that helps, baby dust to you:)

Also started taking a prenatal vitamin months in advance to help support the pregnancy. Also leaned forward with butt in the air to give sperms a gravity advantage after sex for 20-30 minutes. Heeeheeeeee! Have fun, relax, even though you really want a baby. Also is a good idea if hubby will take vitamins, like zinc, CoQ10, B12, etc. Helps restore sperm. Also I wanted to add my hubby had a reverse vasectomy so the odds was against us. Low sperm count, my cysts on ovaries, you name it. But I also prayed and asked others to pray, and even went as far as asking the Catholic nuns to intercede on my behalf, and I'm not Catholic. Lol!!! But I realized God was telling me to relax, even in all the craziness of me desperately wanting a child. Now I have a healthy happy 11 month old:).

I went to Doctors today for blood tests to make sure everything is doing what it should be, hopefully I'll have some good news soon. It feels like everyone around me is having babies, everytime I open a magazine, there's another preggers celeb staring back at me too, lol! Good luck! xx
