If you have been trying to get pregnant for a while and it’s not happening, here are some of the possible reasons behind the problem:

You’re not ovulating: If you’re not ovulating, you won’t be able to get pregnant. Anovulation is a common cause of female infertility and it can be triggered by conditions such as pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome), obesity, hyperprolactinemia, extreme stress, hormonal imbalance, etc. Irregular or absent menstrual periods is one of the most common signs that a woman is not ovulating normally.

Sperm problems:  Human conception requires the union of an egg and sperm. Infertility in men can be caused by low sperm count, poor sperm motility or morphology. A man with normal sperm count may still have difficulty impregnating his partner if he has poor sperm motility. It is important to ensure that you have adequate sperm count and sperm quality for pregnancy to occur. Sperm boosters like EVERGREEN FORMULAR FOR MEN are widely recommended for Dads-to-be.

Poor lubrication/Cervical Mucus: Adequate lubrication is needed for any couple to enjoy sex. Beyond sex, lubrication is also important for the movement of sperm from the vagina towards the egg for fertilization. The use of saliva, water or petroleum jelly is a bad idea if you’re trying to conceive, as these types of lubricant can kill sperm or negatively affect the motility of sperm. It is advisable to use a quality fertility lubricant like Pre-seed which is doctor-recommended for couples who are trying for a baby.

Alcohol/Smoking/Stress:  Smoking or drinking greatly reduces your ability to produce gametes (eggs in the females and sperms in the males). Smoking or drinking pulls down the body’s ability to produce healthy sperm or eggs.

Not having sex at the right time: As a woman, there’s a time of the month when you’re very likely to get pregnant. It is good to enjoy sex anytime you feel like it, but when trying for a baby, you should also time intercourse to occur during your fertile period. This is usually about 1-2days before ovulation day. There are natural symptoms that can help you determine your ovulation period. E.g. egg-white cervical mucus, changes in basal body temperature, sore nipples, breast tenderness, abdominal discomfort, spotting, mittelschmerz, increased sex drive, etc. You can also get PREDICTE OVULATION TEST KITs which works accurately to help you determine your exact ovulation day.

Fallopian tube problems:  Normally, sperm and egg should meet in the fallopian tube for fertilization. A blocked tube can prevent them from joining. The most common cause of blocked fallopian tubes is pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), untreated pelvic infections/STDs, previous ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis, etc. Some blockages may be corrected using medications while other cases may require surgery. If treatment is not possible, your doctor might recommend in vitro fertilization (IVF).
