Did you tell you doctor you were taking those pills?  Your docotr should be able to tell you if that's the factor.  Also, are you practicing fertility awareness?  If you have a somewhat normal cycle and ovulate normally, you have a 20%-25% chance of conception every cycle.
I would suggest charting your BBT and maybe using OPKs to confirm and predict your ovulation.  Pay attention to your cervial mucus to watch for fertile sign.
Your doctor might prescride Clomid if you try the above and still have no luck.
Good Luck.

i agree w/ dollchina, charting your bbt is a good way to track your cycle and see when you are ovulating.  good luck

I had no idea what cortal tablets were, so I looked it up. Apparently it's aspirin... which is a completely ineffective method of birth control, and thus wouldn't affect your fertility in the future. Your difficulty getting pregnant now may actually explain why you didn't experience pregnancy while taking aspirin.

However, if I'm wrong and cortal is something else, please post back.

Someone else said they took these "cortal tablets" as contraceptives. If they are indeed aspirin, how on earth would they keep you from getting pregnant? I'm supposed to take aspirin to help me get pregnant. Did a doctor tell you to take aspirin to prevent pregnancy? They only thing I can think of is that it would be such a high (and dangerous) amount, that the endometrial lining would turn to liquid, so no fertilized eggs could implant, but that seems a little crazy.

I looked the drug up on RXlist.com and could not find any info on it.  I have never heard of this drug...was it dispensed at a pharmacy to you?  I would definately ask your Dr.  I searched it as a form of birth control but could not find any info.

i heard that info about Cortal and a softdrink... they say that the Cortal tablet should be dissolved in the softdrink with high acidity and drink it, but there are side effects as well, you will feel dizzy and restless.. i dont know if it works, as for preventing getting pregnant, or miscarriage... but some also say that Cytotec is somewhat synonym to Cortal but the use is totally different...

all in all, ask your doctor first and consult your problems.. nobody can share any info about these drugs that are not quite sure yet what it does... but if you do visit your doctor, then he/she can refer you to a drug that could help you...

i am studying as a nursing student, and i have a subject at school that is about drugs (Pharmacology) and as what i have researched, Cortal is an Aspirin... and Cytotec is an anti-ulcer drug, these two drugs are cautioned to be taken by a person who are pregnant or becoming pregnant. It should not be taken without any knowledge about the tablet's dose, dosage, side effects, and many more.. Learn the drug first before taking it... Let the doctor help you...

And as what i have learned, Cortal can be bought in few selected pharmacies.. Some dont allow Cortal to be sold to the market, and to the people... As well as Cytotec.. but still you need to learn the most useful and most reliable methods of birth control...

thanks for reading, i hope my info is useful.. and i am glad to be of great help to you...

thanks ^_^

Will you get pregnant if you had sex the day before your menstrual period?
Is there any possibility for a woman to get pregnant having sex while she has her period??

I hope anyone could give me information.
thank you....
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
no not likely to get pregnant on your period or the day before or the day after.

people dont ovulate that quickly. ovulation happens about 14-16 days after your lmp (going by the first date)

use bc if you dont want to be pregnant

cytotec is  also a medicine use for abortion.you may put it into your vagina or it can be oral. cortal also use for abortion minimum of 2-4 tablets and a beer.it will surely abort the baby. and for the girls that is drinking cortal after sex with a softdrinks said to be effective. it kills the sperm inside your body. that is the belief of other.
pls. avoid this drugs for preventing pregnancy.3 days after menstrual cycle is the safest day for having sex.5 days before and 5 days after is also good, it will not easily gt you pregnant.practice natural and safe sex...good day!

why would you recomend a woman takes a pill to kill her baby and then take a "beer"?!!
Blank
Avatar_n_tn
no!!, im just saying thats how it works. drink the pill and intend of water drink it with a beer. many are curious, i just put a clarification on their question about it.. im not in favor of abortion... if the couple is not ready to have a child practice safe sex by not drinking anything. that they would regret it in the future...

.. we are on the same boat.. but i want to abort it if im really pregnant... until now i dont have my period.. but i think im really am pregnant. my friend advised me to take cortal 3 times a day.. and stop taking it until i have my mentruation.. good luck! but i advise u to take pills wen u sex after aborting ur baby this time if you're not really ready .. Norethisterone Ethinyl Estradiol may do.. its Micropil.. on the first week you'll be taking the pills use an additional method of protection until u hav taken the first 7 pills.. this is only for the first month you take the pill.

what a selfish, selfish person you are.
plan a... don't screw without protection, plan b is to be an adult, live up to your responsibilities,  and not be a slave to your desires or cultural pressures.
be smart and don't laugh about killing a baby. (i can't wrap my mind around that one!) don't let the media persuade you...it's wrong...they could care less.
i was involved in such a terrible  decision when i was younger and i am now 1 child short.
i still mourn, especially when i see my 2 children...your adult mind will hopefully supercede your immature, juvenile behaviors. when you grow older you'll hopefully grow wiser.
human sperm coupled with human egg equals human baby...whether 2,4,8,16,32,64,... cells. look at a basic biology textbook. it's not a tree, a frog, a mule...it's your child.
be glad your mother wasn't so self-centered. rarely is ANYONE ready to have a baby...but it all works out....nothing can melt your heart more than when your eyes meet your child's eyes.

i have thought of that already.. i actually can't do it.. that's why i decided to take the responsibilities as i should, anyway it's not my baby's fault of being created, it's our carelesness... but good.. i have my period, im not pregnant.. maybe im just too young to think of those stupid stuff.. but you know what.. i feel very sorry about myself.. i dont know what to do now.. i have just made myself into a situation i haven't thought i would be getting into.. now im getting married.. after how many months.. it's just now that i have realized that im not yet ready.. but i made myself locked into a situation i dont know how would i get off... huhuhu but i think everything is too late.. i feel very bad,... i have not even proven myself worth to this guy im into.. i was really depressed the time we had a relationship.. but i was like poured out with cold water realizing that i don't really know where im into... i want to prove my self worth... is it too late? :(

hi, sorry if i was too agressive in my unsolicited reply. truly i am. it's just that society today doesn't value life. your response is puzzling. what do you mean by...

"i have just made myself into a situation i haven't thought i would be getting into.. now im getting married.. after how many months.. it's just now that i have realized that im not yet ready.. but i made myself locked into a situation i dont know how would i get off..."

it seems that you are NOT pregnant...yay. but are you somehow trapped into getting married? if you are not ready, marriage won't work. LOVE should dictate this decision...not others feelings. it is just as unfair to marry someone whom you may not "be ready" for as it is to yourself. How old are you? 19, 20? you have a lot of life ahead of you! be patient! also, you say that, " i have not even proven myself worth to this guy im into"...#1 you have self worth and are a beautiful person and if he loves you he already knows of your "worth"! #2 you say a guy you are "into"..what does that mean? you don't mention LOVE. i am praying for you to be rescued from your self torment. i am a Christian...not a bad word...only faith in Christ can truly save you. i am46 yrs old pharmacist and have had a super tragic life..from sex abuse, to death of all my siblings, to almost going blind...and that's just the tip of it! i am the happiest man i know! talk to your pastor or someone you can confide in. listen with your heart, not your mind and emotions. you can't and won't please everyone. i'll be thinking of you and sending prayers up to God 4 you! oh yeah, by your response it shows that you already know of your self-worth!

I do have frends who are med students as well who took cortal + coke 1-3days after their sexual intercourse but on a case to case basis...like if they are sure that their mates are 101% sperm blown out inside... i heard that cortal is used only upto 1-3days after their intercourse beyong that itwill not be effective. but i tell u guys that having a practice of drinking it  every after your sexual intercourse may have an adverse effects in the future...advise! dont use this drug often or consider it as a pill because it's not.

They also try drinking a glass of blended ampalaya...for the same purpose and is proven effective plus the fact that it has no side effects.

I have also read other posts here that they are delayed in a weeks...if so why not buy a PT to be sure if you're pregnant or not... PT are can be used after 3days of your recent sexual intercourse.

Too, I am a med student and responsible to take care of our patients and not to kill them...If you're pregnant why not take responsible of your mistakes... You should be able to face the future consequences of your doings...REMEMBER: One mistake will not corrected by ANOTHER mistake...
