Q&A: Why am I having trouble getting pregnant?
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 16 months. I am 34 and already have a 11 year old son. I had no trouble except with delivery (c-section). Last month I went in to see why and had a hysterosalpingogram. They put the dye in and found I only have half a uterus and one tube and ovary. The one tube I had was blocked and he opened it up. So, if I had one child ok, why am I having so much trouble and how do I increase my odds of getting pregnant. Or are my efforts futile?
No, your efforts aren’t futile if you want a pregnancy.
However, half of infertility is male-related, so a sperm count is absolutely mandatory. If you don’t have that done, then if there’s a male problem, all of the fancy treatments for you really will be futile.
