Hi! If you were my patient, I would reassure you that you haven't been trying long enough. Most types of birth control actually PROTECT your reproductive organs and your fertility. If you are over 30 and have been trying for more than 6 months, or if you are under 30 and have been trying for over a year, then it is time to get help from your doctor. Otherwise, just let nature take its course--don't try TOO hard! Good luck! Dr B
