Dr. David : This is dr David
Dr. David : he need to get his sperm count tested
Dr. David : often times guys can have low sperm count
Dr. David : many couples have to try for more than a year before they can conceive
Dr. David : so you still need to keep trying
Customer:

can something be wrong with either both of us ?

Dr. David : are you timing inter course around the time if the month when you ovulate?
Dr. David : He could have low sperm count
Dr. David : that is why he might need to have a sperm count tested
Customer:

yes we often have sex all the week when im ovulating

Customer:

umm he smokes alot if weed can that be the reason ?!

Dr. David : Yes smoking a lot of weed can drop his sperm counts
Dr. David : He needs to stop that to get a better chance to conceive
Customer:

so the reason why i cant get pregnant faster is because of his low sperm and the cause of it is him smoking weed ?

Dr. David : That could be the reason
Dr. David : only medical testing can tell for sure
Customer:

because like i said when i ovulate theirs times when we do it more than 3 times a day trying to concive but nothing

Customer:

is their any medication we can take ?

Dr. David : I understand
Dr. David : No medication
Dr. David : best for him to quit weed for a while
Customer:

because alot of friends have told me that theirs a type of medication that makes u ovulate faster or something like that

Dr. David : Yes there are fertility medications like clomid
Dr. David : but that doesn't matter if he is not producing proper sperm counts
Dr. David : he needs to see a fertility clinic and get a sperm count evaluation
Customer:

and where can he go to get that done ?

Dr. David : At a fertility clinic
Customer:

with a gynecologist ? or can he go to plann parenthood ?

Customer:

????

Dr. David : He can start at a planned parenthood and ask if they do sperm count testing there
Dr. David : that would be a good place to start
Dr. David : Best if luck to you and him
Dr. David : let me know if you have other questions
