QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Me and my fiancé have been trying to get pregnant for 8 months now, I am 19 and he is 20. I have just recently started taking pre-natal pills to help give me the nutrients that I need.

We feel that we are too young to need to start taking fertility supplements. Are their any natural foods or drinks we can use to increase our chances of getting pregnant

ANSWER

Not really. But if you follow the directions about when to have intercourse and are sure that you are ovulating and you still don't get pregnant for a year, then it is time for you both to get a good check-up and find out what is going on.

You might also consider getting married first, since marriage is much less of a commitment than parenthood, and just see how that goes.
