Okay thanks girls.  I guess I will see.  Hopefully it helps. Does the clomid and other fertility drugs help??  I'm just wondering.  I've only been ttc for 2 months but I can't afford a lot of meds, or fertility drugs yet.. Until I know I need some.  But I'm just wondering if me not being prego has something to do with dh smoking, and me not knowing exactly when I O.

Me nor my dh smoke, but my RE has that on his list of "No Nos"  It can decrease and harm the sperm.  
Most likely, your Dr. would not even begin to test you for fertility problems until you have been trying for a year at your age.
Clomid helps you to ovulate so you need to do OPKs to see if you ovulate on your own before you go down that road.

Okay thanks kindergal... Yeah I know...  I'm wondering of some ways I can convince dh to quit smoking.  Yeah I'm going to try the OPK's to see.. And if not does clomid work?  Yeah I know I'm starting early... But thanks for your info.
