It is too early to say that. I think you should continue trying. I know it can be worrying after some time. However, it takes about 12 months to normally conceive. Therefore, don't worry. Other than that there are a few things you can do to improve your condition. Firstly, make sure to eat healthy food. The diet should consist of important nutrition. Other than this exercising and yoga are really good for the body. Go for a light mode for both. Also, stay hydrated and drink lots of water. If after a year things still don't work then visit a specialist. They will help you out. Just make sure to visit someone who is experienced in this field. Sending baby dust your way.

Five months isn't that long a time. It's still quite early. Most doctors suggest a base time of six months. If you still have problems after the six months, it's standard procedure to get in touch with a doctor. They carry out a few tests. You get a better idea of what's going on. What could be wrong, and what could be the solutions for it. If you're worried, you can always consult, earlier. It should be nothing, though. Good luck to you! You can also think about consulting a fertility specialist if you want to. Most probably, it would be nothing. Even if it is, just remember there are solutions for everything. Keep us updated on how it goes. I'd love to help you out!

Well, it's not so moral to decide what time is enough to really seek clinical help for fertility but you're right. 5 months is definitely not too much to really decide if there's infertility. Not only the doc takes 6 months but sometimes a year even to refer to RE specialists. One only has as much as a 20% chance of a successful pregnancy in every TTC cycle... so naturally, it could take some months to get pregnant even if everything is alright with the couple. That's why a minimum stipulated time is needed for the doc to really take initiative considering that there's some trouble. Also, I don't think with just symptoms it's possible to deduce if there's at all any problem. Like you already mentioned, until and unless the doc refers a diagnosis the answer is definitely unknown. I love the statement "there's a solution to everything" that's definitely what keeps the TTC going no matter the failed attempts .

Hello, hun. I hope you're not too worried about it. It's really natural to worry about this. I felt the same way. Along with me, many other women must have felt this. TTC can be a little difficult. It's just the way it is. It gets even harder for some women, like me. Infertility causes all these issues. Hopefully, you won't have to go through that. It's normal to consult your doctor after six months. You can always go earlier and get the tests done. That's the normal way to go about it. Don't stress out too much about it. It should all be clear. Good luck to you! I hope you get your BFP really soon.

Be that as it may, standing up or heading off to the restroom makes gravity pull sperm away from the cervix. Setting down for 15 minutes after sex can help prop sperm up the correct way by giving them some additional time – consequently expanding the likelihood of pregnancy, there are positions when you can still try for having baby.

That's well covered.. thanks for sharing! You've suitably summarised anything and everything that can be naturally done to boost the chances of conception. However, these remedies are only useful when there are no underlying infertility issues interfering with the normal reproductive function. Well, no matter the infertility treatment though lifestyle changes can be improve the chances... along with the proper treatment. If the problem is just vitamin deficiency or natural hormonal imbalance then one or all of these initiatives cumulitively can help to actually get pregnant without much clinical treatment but then that's pretty rare. Also, I don't really believe in the fertility tea or natural herbs or even the acupuncture to boost fertility. It's better to get prescribed medication for ovulation stimulation, progesterone pessaries, vitamin supplements or other additional intakes than just bestow on things that promote as wonder solution to infertility.

Hi Wemma! I hope you are doing well now. 5 months is not a long time, you should at least try for 1 year or more then look into other options. It takes almost 1 year for the majority of the people to make it work. If you want to make it happen, then the best thing you can do is a keep a healthy routine. If you are eating well and doing exercise on daily basis then the chances of you conceiving will be high. Yoga and acupuncture are also great treatments to balance the energies of your body. If it crosses over a year then contact a specialist. He will guide you further. Just make sure you opt for a good clinic. Clinics can make a huge difference in this journey. Good luck! Stay blessed! Bye!

At the point when sperm are inside a lady's body, they can live for as long as 5 days. In case you're a man and you engage in sexual relations even a couple of days before your accomplice ovulates, there's a possibility she may get pregnant. So do not loose hope and keep trying for baby. Good luck.

Five months isn't that long a time. Six months is when the doctors suggest you should visit them and get your tests done. If you feel like nothing is happening, you can still visit your doctor and clear things up. I hope it's nothing too serious. Even if it is, you shouldn't really worry, because there are solutions for everything. Good luck to you! I hope this helped.

Hey Wemma! I hope you are feeling better now. You are trying for only 5 months. That is not a long time. You need to at least try for 1 year or more. It takes almost 1 year for a normal pregnancy. I hope you understand what i am talking about. If after that you still can't conceive. Then visit a specialist and get yourself tested. Sometimes even a little thing can become a barrier between you and your baby. I hope things get better for you. Just keep on trying. Take care. Stay blessed. Bye.

Hi Merri. How are you doing? I think a year is a long time. Doctors usually advise to TTC for 6 months. That should be enough. And yes, it is always better to try and find out what the problem is. I hope there's nothing serious here though. Hope all works out.

Hello, there! I hope you're okay. Five months is not that long a time. It's okay if you're feeling a bit panicky. It shouldn't be anything serious. Doctors normally prefer that you visit them after six months of TTC. You can visit them, now. It depends on you, of course. Don't worry too much, honey! My prayers are with you. Sending you lots of baby dust and love. I really hope it's nothing serious. If it is some issue, you still shouldn't worry, because there are many solutions available. You can do this! Keep us posted on how it goes.

Yes. I agree. You can TTC for another month and if that doesn't work out, see your doctor. They usually prescribe a few meds. You are supposed to TTC for a few more months. 6 months maximum. If it still doesn't work out, it is time to consider other options. I hope it works for you though.

Hello. Sorry to hear about your struggles. But five years is not that long. You can continue TTC. If you like, you can contact a doctor about this. You can TTC with some medication. That might work too. I hope your problem gets fixed soon. Hope this was helpful.

The doctors usually say that one should wait for about a year. Therefore, I would say that you keep trying. However, do track your cycle. Download an app and check your ovulation dates. Chart them up as well. Also, control your diet. Make sure that the food you are consuming has nutrients in it. This is something that is really important. Avoid caffeine intake. Good luck to you. I hope things go well. If your periods are irregular and if you think there is a problem then do visit a doctor. Sending baby dust your way. Make sure that the doctor you visit is high in success rate. They should know what they are doing.
