I have been trying to get pregnant during my ovulation.


Q: Dear Doctor:

I am currently trying to get pregnant. I have haven't had any children before and this is my first month of trying to get pregnant. I have irregular periods, I don't always get my periods every 30 days. My last period started on the 24th of August and I bought some ovulation tests to see when I was ovulating. I started ovulating on the 7th of september and my husband and I proceeded to try. It has now been 4 days since I have tried, and i started getting very small pains in my pelvic area. I don't understand why this is? Also when my husband and I tried sperm did leak, if the sperm leaked is there a possibility that I could be pregnant now? I really need some feed back because I am new at this and don't really understand much about this topic, I really appreciate you help.
