Trying to get pregnant
I am not on the pill for 4 months now. I know when my ovulating times are we have been given a schedule. We are trying very actively, 3 times a week but I am still not pregnant. Is there something wrong or are we doing something wrong or does it just take longer.

I am 29 and my husband is 33 can it be our age?

My last ovulating date was the 20th of January 2009. How long after can I test to know if I am pregnant?

Please help!

It can take up to a year for a normal healthy couple to conceive.
You can test 3-4 days after missing a period.
