For getting pregnant you need to have regular menstrual cycle {this indicates that the hormonal balance in you is good and this is needed to get pregnant}. Apart from this the chances of pregnancy increase if you do not have any diseases {infection, diabetes or others}/ you are not overweight. You also need to have a partner who has normal sperm count and motility.

It may not happen with the first try. You need to keep trying.

Good luck

can you suggest any medication that will help to conceive faster?

Expert:  Ken replied 4 years ago.
Hello Shanice,

If both of you are healthy than you do not need any medicines to conceive. You need to keep trying. One conceives when sperm meets the released ovum. This generally occurs around 14th day of menstrual cycle {considering 28 day cycle}. The act around 14th day is more fruitful. You may wish to consult your doctor on this issue.

Have balanced diet, adequate fluid/ avoid alcohol, smoking.

Good luck
