*Question: *Why Can't I Get Pregnant if I Have Regular Periods and Live a
Healthy Lifestyle?

we eat right. We're not overweight. Why am I having trouble getting

*Answer: *

When you can't get pregnant, and things look good from the outside, it can
be extremely frustrating.

The first thing to consider is how long have you been trying. About 80% of
couples will get pregnant after six months of trying, and about 90% will be
pregnant after 12 months of trying to get pregnant. (And that's with
well-timed intercourse each and every month.)

If you haven't been trying for at least six months, or you haven't been
timing sex for ovulation, then you should keep on trying.
