11 REASONS WHY YOU’RE NOT GETTING PREGNANT
Have you been trying to get pregnant for some time and nothing has changed. There are many reasons why this is not happening at this time. In this article, we researched extensively the many possible reasons why you are not pregnant despite the trials and they are explained below.
This article explores the silent symptoms of infertility like male infertility which is rarely known as well as the audible reasons like irregular periods or severe menstrual clamps. Before we delve into the reasons, please it is important to note that not all couples will get pregnant right away. From statistics, about 80% of couples conceive after 6 months of trying and approximately 90% get pregnant after 12 months of trying. This statistics is based on the assumption that the couple have well timed intercourse every month.
Age of either couple or both can cause pregnancy delay
The American medical board recommends that one sees a doctor about fertility if you’re 35 years or older and have been trying for at least 6 months or that you’re younger than 35 years and have been trying for at least one year. See a doctor immediately if either of these fits your situation even when there are no symptoms.
For conception to take place, the woman must provide the egg which will meet the man’s sperm, if this does not happen, pregnancy cannot happen. Ovulation is the period when the female release the egg. Lack of Ovulation is a common cause of female infertility and it can be caused by many conditions.
Most women suffering from anovulation have irregular menstrual cycle. However, regular menstrual cycle is not guarantee that Ovulation is taking place. The moment you start experiencing irregular cycle, talk to your doctor immediately.
The Husband May Be The Problem
The Woman Sometimes Is Not The Blame When Conception Fails To Happen.
Sometimes, the blame could be on the man since it takes two to tango. The American medical Association asserts that after much research, it is found that 30% of infertility problems lie with the man, and another 40% find infertility factors on both sides. While both of you get tested, know that just a single semen analysis might not be enough to observe the symptoms. The symptoms can be laying silently.
Age Related Infertility
It could take longer to get pregnant for women over 35 and men over 40. Age adversely impacts egg quality and quantity. Worse still, if your partner is 5 years and above older than you are at 35, this may increase infertility problems for the couple.
The fallopian tubes are the pathway between the Ovaries and the Uterus. It is the pathway made for transportation of the egg between the ovaries and the uterus. Conception takes place in the fallopian tube starting from the sperm swimming up the cervix through the uterus up to the fallopian tube. If there’s any blockage along that part, then conception can never take place. Only fertility testing can ascertain if your fallopian tube is open or blocked.
You May Have Endometriosis
Endometriosis is when tissues lining the wall of the uterus grows outside the uterus. Statistics has shown that up to 50% of women with this problem will have difficulty getting pregnant.
Symptoms of endometriosis include painful menstruation and pain in the pelvic area, though many woman with this condition experience no symptoms. To properly diagnose endometriosis, it must require diagnostic laparoscopic surgery and it can last an average of 4 years. A simple blood test or ultra sound can’t be effective in diagnosing the problem.
Many medical conditions like depression, thyroid imbalance, stress or undiagnosed diabetes can lead to infertility. Do not ignore these underlying medical conditions. Seek medical help always.

You’re Not Sleeping Enough
Men and women who don’t get enough sleep can start feeling anxious which may lead to women missing their periods and men producing low quality sperm. Keeping yourself healthy is the bottom line and this must include at least 8 hours of sleep each day. People who don’t get enough sleep may develop less immunity to simple infections which may affect the reproductive cycle. Never deprive yourself of a good sleep because lack of it can put stress on the body.
Did you know that being over or under weight can lead to infertility problems.
