Reasons for NOT getting pregnant when your ovulating


I've been running this through my mind and apart from sounding thick i am trying to come up with reasons why we dont fall pregnant when we are ovulating and our OH's are cumming....

so, so far i have come up with:
  • The sperm may have died by the time it reaches the egg
  • You werent ovulating when you thought you were
  • He is 'shooting blanks' (although agreed this would be a long term prob)

what else?

there are probably loads more but i am thick so please bare with me lol

The ones I can think of:
  • Not ovulating when you think.
  • Too few swimmers which can sometimes happen if you've been BD'ing too often as well as for other reasons.
  • The sperm being too late and the egg is too old.
  • Something being wrong with either the sperm or the egg.
  • Your body being run down so the enviroment may not be so good (less fertile mucus etc).
  • Sperm not actually finding the egg (they can't read maps!).
  • Sperm and egg meeting but not implanting because it's late in the cycle and the lining isn't good or there is a problem again with the sperm and egg.

A couple more - The egg could be released late and the sperm are too old or missed completely or implantation could happen but the embryo doesn't develop properly again and is shed with AF.

The ov cm is there to facilitate the sperm getting up to your egg.. if there's not enough the spermies dont get there on time or at all. Pree Seed can help.

There's also the possibility the cm is too acidic nd thus not hospitable to spermies...

You know what i don't understand. We mostly have a healthy diet etc but ppl in third world countries don't and i would assume many of them don't know half as much as we do about conception and timing etc, yet they don't seem to have problems falling pregnant. Strange isn't it?
Maybe i have generalized abit but it was something that went through my mind.

Anyway back to the original post (sorry for my sidetracking)
Clumpy sperm..As odd as it sound's some men's sperm are abit clumpy and thick. I read in some book that they did a trial of 50 men with clumpy sperm...half of them were given Vit C and the other half wern't. The Vit C guy's managed to get their wives pregnant!
Needless to say my OH is now on Vit C and erm..Zinc cos it makes the spermies stronger etc.

I'm not overly spiritual but could be about fate and all that - that u fall PG when you're meant to. It could be about the 'natural order of things' and each woman falls PG when Mother Nature dictates and so on. x
