If I am going to be a father for the first time, and my wife a mother for the first time, then we need to how hard is it to get pregnant? My wife and I have actually had unprotected intercourse, but she does not seem to get pregnant. What could be the cause of not getting pregnant? I am sure we have done it during her ovulation period too, but nothing seems to be working. Could you please tell us some ways to get pregnant? What should we do, what do we need to understand about getting pregnant.
