Medical research has shown that for a healthy young couple who have regular sexual intercourse, your chances of getting pregnant during one menstrual cycle is about 20 percent (one in five). The figure gradually starts to decline for a woman in her late 20s and early 30s and decreases even more after age 35. For men, the rate of decline is slower than what women experience.

Causes of infertility in women

Among women, the main causes of infertility are

Ovulatory disorders – Issues around the monthly release of an egg from the ovaries. Ovulation disorders can be caused by polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid problems, or premature ovarian failure where the ovaries stop working before the age of 40

Tubal disorders – This is when the fallopian tubes become blocked or infected

Uterine Issues – This relates to issues such as fibroids, polyps (Endometriosis), or adhesions

Health and lifestyle choices – Some lifestyle choices including nutrition may affect fertility in women. What you eat and the nutrients (vitamins, minerals, etc) you get may affect your menstrual cycle, ovulation, and overall hormonal balance.

Drugs and medicines – The long-term use of some drugs and medicines can affect fertility. For example, medicines used for chemotherapy can sometimes affect fertility. Illegal drugs such as cocaine may also affect fertility and make ovulation more difficult

Natural ways to improve fertility
Fertility/Prenatal supplements – A good prenatal supplement is an inexpensive option that will supply you with the important vitamins and minerals in the right amounts to help increase your chances of conceiving. Balanced diets alone cannot contain all the essential nutrients required to support natural conception for both men and women and this is why it is important to start taking prenatal supplements when you consider becoming pregnant. Fertility supplements for men can help improve semen (sperm) quality that can swim far enough to fertilise an egg.

Hi Mama's to be!

I and my husband started trying for a child in January but nothing till now; this is our 3rd cycle, AF is due to come tomorrow and I'm already spotting, so this month is out.

I'm wondering what we're doing wrong? And please recommend any good hospital or lab from Maryland to Ikorodu axis where we can go to be checked out cos I'm already getting worried.

Looking forward to your responses.. thanks!

Good evening mamas and congrats to all the new preggys.
I'm back here for some advice please.
I'm ovulating fine on my own, all my scans, hsg and tests came out good. Although they were all done about a year ago, but only issue I was having was infection which was treated and doc says im fine.
After much trying and error stress with doctors, I tried the trad option, same diagnosis of infection plus womb setting, after 3months treatment even she has now said I'm ok.
My thoughts it's now 2 cycles since early February I'm certified ok I still haven't conceived and I'm ovulating.
Question I want to ask pls, can someone ovulate and still not have enough progesterone to support pregnancy? If so what can I do please to help myself. Cos I always feel like I've conceived, then suddenly the symptoms begin to dissappear and I see menses again.

Start using progesterone suppositories or primolut injection once you are sure you have ovulated till you see your period.i pray you don't see your period though.

I’m not a Judge so if you took the decision to have an abortion that’s between you and your maker.TTC for a year is a little early to worry too much.You can walk into any pharmacy and buy ovulation kits this would give you a better picture.
It is a bit premature to go into menopause at 28 but not impossible.You need to carry out medical tests to know what is going on.

3 cycles is an extremely short time of trying to become worried. Usually doctors don't even listen to you if you haven't actively tried for 1yr (6 months if you are above 35yrs). And actively trying means having unprotected sex every other day in your fertile window and at least once in 3 days in the following days.
What you might be doing wrong might be simply wrong timing of sex or you may not be doing anything wrong.
Echolab on Opebi is a good lab for diagnostics. But you have to go with your husband so he also runs a seminal fluid analysis

Not seeing ecwm doesn't mean you aren't ovulating. Only a folliculometry can truly confirm ovulation but you can use ovulation strips to check for ovulation.
Depending on how long ago you did the D&C, your hormones might be out of place.

But it's just 3 months of trying, it's just your conscience eating you up. Once you forgive yourself you'd realise that you got pregnant while you weren't anxious/trying to conceive. It's only when you have tried for 1yr you can start worrying..but in the interim you can do a hormonal profile test and SFA for your husband.

Thanks...ovulation strip didn't work but I'll try again.
And the D&C was in 2016. .and all I had to do was have sex once. It's mostly the part of parents looking at my belly when lever we visit...I even dread visiting now. I sent my mum. A picture and she innocently insinuate d I was pregnant saying I should eat fruits and vegetables...my fave is swollen. Beyond it all I am comforted knowing God's time is the best

Hopefully this is how to reply on this platform since I’ve been more of a reader.
My advice; kindly discontinue clomid immediately and never self medicate when it comes to fertility. Have you done the necessary fertility tests?

Doctor said it was too early for me to worry and I read up on clomid and how it's harmless as ppl can use it for multiple pregnancies . I thought I should try before going back ....and I stuck with 50 mg so I don't hyperstimulate

I think you should go for hormone profile test, when hcg level is high, your body tend to show a false positive result, this can be as a result of hormonal imbalance
HCG is a type of hormone the body produces when one is pregnant, in cases of hydatidiform mole, hormonal imbalance

Hi.You might need to ask your doctor to refer you for a hormone profile test as sometimes they are not balanced.Can i also calm you down by letting you know it is quite common and can be corrected.Few years ago i started producing breast milk for no reason and on testing it was my prolactin messing about.

I can’t see the ovulation kit so wouldn’t know.
Most come with instructions so follow it.The best on the market so far though costly is clear blue as it predicts the exact day with a smiley face clearly displayed so you don’t start worrying is that a line or not.Hope this helps.

Happy Easter ma'am, families are another thing to deal with when dealing with TTC.
the family may not know the issue is with your D.H that's why they encourage him to take another wife.
let me tell you what I did when D.H families want to mess with my sanity each time we meet at functions. they would call family gathering after function and it will be to pray for me, they would ask me to kneel down while they pray for the fruit of the womb for me ooo. they succeeded the first time, the second time they were shocked as I refuse to kneel and ask their son to kneel, being the one that owns the seed that would turn to fruit in my own womb, he also needs prayer for seed of the penis nao.
I didn't disgrace my hubby, he understands quite well, we have been in this together, and since all medical and traditional tests says we are fine, why would I allow people look at me as if I am the one with issue.
I even overhead them saying why did he marry Omo Eko, and I told them may they have a longer taste of what I am passing through right now, that would explain to them that TTC has no affiliation with tribe or language.

Please and please, your mental health matters alot, I want to believe you are still the best person to advice yourself on this issue. do whatever gives you peace of mind before considering what will people say.


happy Easter again.


My sisters and Mama's in the Lord, may we receive heaven's blessing soonest
