Trying for a baby

I am 36 years old and my husband is 40. We both have one kid from our ex partners. We've been trying for a baby for the last 6 months but not successful. My periods are regular every month, my FHS test also showed negative and I had an ovulation test done every 11th to 15th day of the cycle which shows my ovulation is very high. We tried for a baby but unfortunately it was unsuccessful and I got my period on time the next month. What is the problem? Please help with a solution.

It is difficult to know why you are not conceiving without doing more investigations. If your husband has a normal semen analysis then you could try for another 6 month before seeking help at a fertility clinic.
