trying to have a baby. we make love every other day

so me and my husband were trying to have a baby. we make love every other day for almost a month. I was expecting my next period to come on November 24. But it was 4-5 days delayed i think. so i thought maybe it works and we'll be having a baby, But my period came on November 29. we were disappointed because we thought making love every other day for the whole month will work. what do you think the problem is? Thank you.

Gen, you would be lucky to get pregnant the first month of trying. Three months is more like it and they say not to go to a fertility consult until a year is up. The best days for trying are 18 days to 14 days before your next period. Look for fertile mucus and cervix soft high open wet.

Patience, Gen. Three months of trying could do it, but don't go looking for a fertility specialist until you have been at it a year. Two weeks and some days before your next period are the best days. Look for the fertile mucus.
