Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Five years is a long time for a 25 year-old to go without getting pregnant, and it's definitely possible that something is wrong.Ask your doctor about possibly running some fertility tests, and make sure both you and your partner get checked. 
It took me 4 years to get pregnant and I was in my 20's. No one took me seriously until I pushed for testing. It turned out I had very serious problems and needed IVF. This was back in the late 80's when it was still new. I finally got pregnant and had one daughter. It did not work the second time. I am very grateful for all of the help I received, but it would not have happened if I did not pursue it and if I were not willing to go through all that I did. It was worth it. Please go see your doctor and get tested--your husband too!Lori Day
We tried for 2 years with no luck.  Finally, we planned a cruise and we are due the day after we are suppose to board the ship.  I guess we just needed to stop trying so hard.  I always thought it was stupid how people would say to stop stressing about it but it worked for us...accidentally.  Good luck with whatever works for you.
