Can`t Get Pregnant After Having A Baby



I had my daughter July 2007, it is now a year later and my husband and I have been trying to have another baby for about 3 months now and I cant seem to get pregnant. I`m wondering if since we immediately stated making love after the birth of my daughter if that had anything to do with my problem?


The definition of infertility is failure to conceive after 12 months of unprotected relations.   If you have only been trying for 3 months without contraception, you can continue to try.  If you have had unprotected relations for 12 months or longer, you should contact our physician for an evaluation.
