what is wrong?
I have tried using the ovulation calendar in order to conceive but have now run out of patience. i've been ttc for almost ten months now. i've regular periods, i've pap smear and scans and the gynae even told me i'm fine there's nothing wrong with me. My partner also went for sperm count and he seems to be fine as well. Could it be possible that i'm not ovulating according to what my ovulation calendar say and is there anyway that i can know besides using the ovulation kits? I've heard and read about clomid and would like to try it, would it affect me in anyway if i'm ovulation normally and when taking should we ttc on my normal ovulation days?My last period started on 9 oct and i was supposed to ovulate between 20 and 22 oct, we tried to conceive through those days and waited til my next period which was only a day late (7 nov, supposed to be 6 nov) to my dissapointment. i've tried everything i could think of(including putting legs up afta intercourse),i just don't know whats happening and i'm ready to give up. can you help me out DOC?

Have your doctor do a blood test to check if you are ovulating. It can take up to a year for a normal healthy couple to conceive.
