Pregnancy and bleeding

My partner and I have already got a 2 and a half year old but we have been trying to get pregnant for a year and it's not happening. When I was pregnant I kept bleeding. Do you think that could have anything to do with me not getting pregnant?

Bleeding during pregnancy usually relates to the placenta or the cervix, none or which affect fertility. You should visit your GP for advice. I would advise you to start to record your periods and maybe use an ovulation predictor kit to see if you are ovulation. I would also recommend a semen analysis for your partner.
