Take precautions

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

It is too early to be worried about not being pregnant. It should be at least 1 year of trying before the doctors get worried on this issue. For you it has just been 2 or 3 cycles.

Try to have sexual intercourse during the time of ovulation. Ovulation usually happens around 14th day from start of last menstrual periods. Also take lots of fruits and raw vegetables. Try to be stress-free. Take folic acid supplements. It is protective against neural tube defects in the babies.

Travelling for 1 hour on bike can produce physically and mental stress (not to mention the bumpy ride in India). In my opinion it should be avoided.

Take care

Brief Answer:
It may decrease amount of semen

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

It is better to have sexual intercourse more frequently during time of ovulation. If the male partner is ejaculating everyday, it decreases the amount of semen being ejaculated, though it should not practically affect the outcome.

Hope I made it clear.
