Why can’t we get pregnant?

“I had a daughter from my last marriage, even though doctors told me I had low sperm count, Now I’m with some one else, we have had unprotected sex for over a year and still can’t get pregnant, show we only have sex on ovulation?”

A: “Since I am not a doctor, I can’t give you medical advice regarding your condition. YOu may want to contact your medical provider with your concerns. But, a pregnancy is most likely to occur, if you and your partner have sex when she is ovulating. Typically ovulation occurs 14 days before the start of her period. A sperm cell can live up to 7 days inside a woman’s reproductive tract, but an egg only has a window of 24-36 hours to be fertilized.”
