If you're trying to get pregnant and it's just not working, it probably feels like everyone else around you is glowing with their own baby news. And while reassurances of "at least you have your health and your relationship" and "it'll happen when it's the right time" may be well-intended, we're guessing that they sting. The fertility business is a booming one, with some 7.4 million women in the US using infertility services, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And while you may feel alone in your battle, according to the American Society For Reproductive Medicine, even a healthy and fertile 30-year-old woman has just a 20 percent chance of becoming pregnant each month. We promise, you're not the only one having a tough time of it!
Before you diagnose yourself as being a lost cause for a natural conception, read on. The reason you're not pregnant yet may very well be a whole lot simpler than you thought. And even if you do require the assistance of your obstetrician, know that there are plenty of options out there. Relax and happy baby-making!
