Could I be Pregnant?!/Why is it taking so long?

Question
Me and my fiancee have been trying to get pregnant for almost two months. I have some symptoms but the home pregnancy tests I've taken have all been negative. Is there anything we can do to increase our chances of me becoming pregnant? Is it normal for it to take so long?

Answer
Hi Kaitlyn, You will have to talk to your doctor about how to have a better chance of getting pregnant. Two months really isn't a long time to try. So be patient. When are you and your fiance getting married? Just curious. If you want to ever get a free pregnancy test, you can get one at a local pregnancy resource center. You can go to http://www.optionline.org and click on the worldwide directory. Please email me at Carieichel@aol.com and let me know what happens. Hope to hear from you soon.
