My boyfriend is 30 who i had our 3 boys with has been on seriquil medication for 2 years straight.. we had a rough relationship before that  was always on and off for 11 years because of his drinking and smoking and never lasted more then 2 months together till he started his medication 2 years ago and have been together for 2 years straight now. He has been living a healthy life style no smoking, no drinking and working out for the past 2 years and has a full time good job.. we have been trying to have one last child for the past year.. we haven't had any luck in conceiving.. as for getting pregnant with my other kids with him it was sooo quick and fast i conceived.. is it because of his seriquel medication? I have normal periods and we have had sex alot for the past year without condoms

ANSWER: Hello Michelle from Canada,

It is not possible to answer your question without doing an infertility evaluation.  Therefore, I recommend that you go see an infertility specialist and undergo an evaluation.

QUESTION: Ohh ok I thought you were a doctor that helps and can answer questions or give some kind of idea whats happening

Answer
Hi Again,

I am a doctor and do give advice and answer questions, but I can only do so with the appropriate information.  The recommendation I made was because testing needs to be done to figure out what is happening.  Any information I give you would be a guess or a list of possibilities, which would not assist you or answer any question.  There is only so much I can do over the internet.  I don't have the capability of doing an examination or ordering tests.  Sorry.

Good Luck,
