OB-GYN (Obstetrician-Gynecologist) Questions Pregnancy

Trying to get pregnant for about 1 year but still no luck.

My partner and I have been trying to conceive but have had no luck. I have not been to a doctor but my family has no record of not being able to conceive as most of them had children at a very young age. My partner has no record of not being able to conceive either so we are not sure what could be the problem. I have a mostly regular period as the days go from between 31-35 days. My partners sister said I should take a prenatal but I am also unsure of which one is the best. I have a healthy diet and I regularly exercise as well. I would just like any advice on what I could do.

Definitely begin a prenatal vitamin, but that is not preventing pregnancy. After a year of trying at the time of ovulation each month, it's best to go see a doctor.
You should consider going to a fertility specialist to have your partner’s sperm analyzed with regards to speed count and mobility.

The same doctor who does your Pap smears to check for cancer can begin an infertility evaluation. You might also check with a family lawyer regarding your partner's legal standing with regard to any children you might have.
