You're wise to start thinking

You're wise to start thinking about your next steps, but you certainly don't need to panic.

1. Evaluate your lifestyle. Are you exercising regularly, but not too strenuously? Have you given up caffeine, drugs and alcohol? Eating a well-balanced diet (and folic acid for her)?

2. Both of you need physicals. There may be underlying infections or other issues that need to be addressed. If she hasn't had an annual pap in a while, then it's time. It's also a good op to rule out STIs or other issues.

3. Track ovulation. If you are having intercourse regularly, but not when she's ovulating, it won't help. Using ovulation predictor kits or other methods to track ovulation will help you know if your timing is off.

4. A semen analysis is a possibility, although probably not necessary quite yet. However, it is relatively inexpensive and can let you know where you stand in terms of sperm quality and quantity.

Good luck!
