How Can I Get Pregnant When My Husband Lives in Another City?!

24 September, 2019
Q Salam.

I have married for 3 years. I have no kids. I live in Saudi Arabia with my parents. My husband lives in another city. He comes to my home in every 2 or 3 months only for 3 days.

I'm not getting pregnant. I went to 3 doctors, they all say that first I must be near to your husband. My periods are not regular either. My in-laws are always saying that 3 days must be enough for me to get pregnant. It's not compulsory to be near to my husband.

I tried telling them a lot that I want to live with my husband and be close to him, but both my husband and my in-laws refuse this. They do not understand me. What shall I do?


Salam Alaikum,

Learn more about the biology of getting pregnant. 3 days can be enough – if you have intimacy at the right biological time.

Track your ovulation cycle. It will help you get pregnant.

As your menstruation is not regular, please visit your doctor.

Bring your husband to the doctor so that you both gain more knowledge so that you can be on the same page.
