It’s only been two months. Even in normal couples, only 70% conceive within 6 months- which means almost a third still don’t. Within TWO YEARS of regular unprotected sex, 94% of couples between 30-34 yrs age will conceive. So yeah, it sucks getting BFN after BFN, but as they say- if at first you don’t suceed, try try again! Sticky baby dust!

Get him a book to read on trying for a baby so he can understand how complicated it is and how low people’s chances are.

Remember that he is most likely not disappointed in YOU but in HIMSELF. He’s probably thinking “if only my little guys were stronger/faster/better”.

My husband didn’t want to read about TTC, but the documentary The Great Sperm Race (available on YouTube) was a great way of summarising the process and the odds of getting pregnant each cycle.

And good luck 🙂
