The fact that a woman is not pregnant, even after unprotected intercourse, may simply be a mathematical inevitability and patience may be the only treatment required. Although the sequence of events in both man and woman leading to conception is intricate, the actual testing required if one has not conceived is relatively simple and inexpensive. On the other hand, these tests must be performed correctly. You should not deceive yourself into thinking that a pelvic exam performed once a year is adequate to assure that a woman is fertile; or a single sperm count performed on a specimen brought in a condom six hours after intercourse is inadequate for deciding that your husband is infertile.
TIMING OF INTERCOURSE, POSITION, AND TECHNIQUES
Most people who complain of infertility have simple problems such as frequency of sex at the appropriate time in the cycle or poor positioning during sex which may often be associated with marginally low sperm counts and irregular ovulation. Simply improving the timing and techniques of intercourse may be enough to conceive.
