Depending on how long ago you had it removed, it's possible your body is trying to adjust to having it out. It could also be a timing issue. Do you know when you ovulate? It's better if you know that so you can plan when to have sex and up your chances of getting pregnant. You ovulate 14 days before you start your period, so if you're tracking your cycles, that can help. Try a website like fertilityfriend.com to help you track everything. Good luck.

track your cycle
It helps if you track your cycle-like the first day of your period is day one, and then the next cycle begins again the first day of your next period. However many days there are between periods is how long your cycle is and 14 days before the first day of your period is when you ovulate-I hope that makes sense. It helps to look at a calendar, or the website I mentioned before. If you estimate that your period comes about every 4 weeks, then you could try using an ovulation predictor kit (opk) 10 days into your cycle, and take the predictor test every day until you get a positive (color match in most cases) result, then you know you're ovulating within the next day or so. An easier way is to just have sex every other day-that method works for a lot of people, and you're sure to catch one of your ovulation days, but I would suggest tracking your cycles anyway, it makes it easier to know when to expect or not expect your next period. Good luck and I hope this helped.

Since it hasn't really been too long since you started trying I wouldn't worry about not being pregnant yet if it's only been not even 2 months. People say it's possible to get pregnant during your period, but it's pretty unlikely.

It depends on if you have a 28 day cycle or if it's longer than that. Get an ovulation predictor kit and start testing either in the morning or in the evening or both on cycle day 10 (the first day of your period is cycle day 1), to be sure to catch it. Keep testing until you get the LH hormone surge and then you know you'll ovulate in the next day or so. Another way to make sure to catch ovulation is to have sex every other day without fail.
