So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 5months now and we have had no luck. I don't have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when i'm ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 2 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to concieve but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I'm thinking it could be a problem with me but i've never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i'm slightly overweight but that shouldn't affect our chances too much. Do you have any suggestions as to why i may be unable to conceive after trying for 5months ? culd it be because my periods are irregular or im slightly overweight. or could i have problems with my ovaries etc. andy advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks x
