I see. I have heard of those apps and I am always like oh yeah.. That will know when my PCOS ass is ovulating.

My fiance and his ex that he was with for 5 years tried to have a baby for over a year unsuccessfully.
He then was checked out by a doctor and found out his sperm count is only 120. The doctor told him that his chances of having a child weren't that great. He was heart broken.
Him and I had only been having sex for two and a half months when I found out I was pregnant.
Tell your hubby not to be discouraged. You guys can use OPKS and talk to an OB about medication and other treatments if you can't get pregnant within a year I think.
If your husband thinks he's the reason it's not happening, he can be checked out by a doctor to rule out low sperm count and other issues too.
Best of luck.

Quoting ^.^ Chippermunkk:" It can take up to a year for healthy couples to get pregnant. Give it time :)"

This is 100% true, AND thats if they are getting it on at the right time too.
Have you tried OV charting and stuff? its worth giving it a go

It literally has been no time at all. I think you need to sit down and talk to him. 90% of healthy couples conceive within one year of TTC. The first month you have a 20% chance. Maybe you have discussed conceiving easily with your other children and feels less 'manly' and no good because you haven't fallen pregnancy straight away. He needs reassuring and educating, yes it is sad and upsetting if what you want doesn't happen, but if he feels so upset so quickly in your efforts to conceive a child, the chances are he will only become more affected by this the longer you try. He can't just expect it to happen straight away, or assume it's 'his' fault. Have a chat with him about this and enjoy each other, your life together with your boys and the baby dancing. It will happen eventually but worrying so soon doesn't cause anything but anxiety and stress.

To clear things up I know we haven't been trying long that was in no way the point of this post. The point was that it was heart breaking seeing the look in my husbands eyes when I started my period. Me and my husband have talked and he knows it can take up to a year + to try and have a baby. He and I have both educated ourselves about TTC and so forth
