Maybe you should go to a fertility specialist, because you can still have infertility problems with your 2nd child. i hope it helps. good luck!

You should not have sex everyday. if you have sex on ovulation day, you should become pregnant. if you don't conceive within 1 year or 6 months if your older you should go to a fertility specialist. good luck.
