Some people get pregnant quickly and easily, and some even discover that they are expecting without trying to get pregnant. On the other hand, you may have been trying to get pregnant for at least a few months or longer. It may have crossed your mind that an underlying fertility issue may be the cause of the delay, and in the back of your mind, you may have wondered if you will be able to have a biological child of your own. It is understandable to feel worried and anxious when you do not get pregnant right away, but keep in mind that it is normal to have several months or even a year of cycles without getting pregnant. While you wait, it makes sense to begin exploring every possible outcome for the future so that you are prepared for any situation.

Explore Fertility Treatment Options
If you continue to have trouble getting pregnant, speaking with your doctor about fertility treatment options is an excellent idea. Your doctor will run fertility tests on you and your partner to determine the most effective treatment option. So that you can speak knowledgeably with your doctor about the options, it makes sense to research possible treatments ahead of time. You may also begin saving money for these treatments, if necessary. Fertility treatment costs are not usually covered by health insurance.

Plan Ahead for Multiples
Fertility treatments can dramatically increase your chance of having multiples, and this may include more than two babies in some cases. Caring for multiples requires a greater time commitment and comes with increased costs. While it may seem early to begin preparing for multiples when you are not yet even pregnant, this is a possible outcome of fertility treatments that it makes sense to plan ahead for.

Research Adoption Agencies
You may learn from your doctor that fertility treatments would not be effective, or perhaps you have decided that you do not want to pursue that path. Adoption is another option to consider. Because the adoption process can be lengthy, it makes sense to locate a reputable adoption agency soon and to research all aspects of the adoption process.

Many people get pregnant once they stop worrying about it and focus on other things. The anxiety associated with trying to get pregnant may interfere with hormones and fertility. With this in mind, focusing your attention on some of these other things and planning ahead for an alternative outcome may be beneficial to you in several ways.
