Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have been trying for pregnancy, and if you are not successful with your pregnancy plans, you should consider going ahead with visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for getting infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Have diet rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of eggs and sperms. Monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
