Having trouble conceiving 4th

I have three children all 17 months apart. my youngest is 15 months now. I have had three or more periods since I stopped nursing and me and my husband have been keeping up regular intercourse since we both want another baby. Why have i not conceived?
We are a couple in our early 30s and in good health and had no trouble with our previous baby-making.

Well, bc even when everything is "perfect", a woman generally has only a 25% chance of conceiving each month. You may be ovulating earlier or later, stress may be a factor, natural selection (maybe body expelling a less than prime egg), whatever. I don't think 3 months of trying is considered to be in the problem zone just yet. I had an online friend go through the same thing. She became convinced she was now barren. She went on to have 2 more children for a total of 5.

Best of luck to you that your next bean is still on his or her way!

Mama to add 10/05; ds 3/09, and two angels. Expecting my 2nd rainbow baby 2/15!
