Infertility

Can`t Get Pregnant After Having A Baby

09/12/2008

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
