Trying to Get Pregnant

Cynthia Flynn's picture


Dear Midwife,
My partner and I are trying to conceive and after over a year I am getting a little worried. I have had blood tests and they were all fine. Any help or advice would be appreciated.


You say that you have been tested, but has your partner? In about 40% of the cases, that is the issue. Fortunately, male problems are usually much easier to deal with than female problems, and there is a good chance for a successful pregnancy in many cases. After a year, both partners should have a full work-up IMHO, assuming that you are well-educated about when to have intercourse.
