The first step is to determine your boyfriend's sperm count. If he has a low sperm count, he may be functionally sterile.

If his sperm are okay and there are enough of them, then usually you want to increase the the amount of intercourse around the time of suspected ovulation. Having sexual intercourse five times a day, every day, can actually decrease your boyfriends sperm count.

If this does not produce a pregnancy, then you would need to have an infertility evaluation.

Good luck.
