Answer:

There are a number of things that factor in to vaginal lubrication. This also includes adequate time for foreplay, etc.  However, this does not necessarily prevent you from becoming pregnant. 

If you have been attempting conception for more than one year without success, an infertility evaluation would be indicated.  This would consist of a semen analysis in your husband, a blood test to see if you are ovulating, as well as a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) to see if your tubes are open.  You can contact your physician to discuss this.
