    Default Cant seem to get pregnant?!

    My husband and i have both been tested and we are both fine but its been 11 months now and no dice....this may sound really silly but i read a few articles saying that the closer the male ejaculates to the egg the more likely you will come pregnant and that is why a guy with a long penis can have a better chance. Well my husband is the opposite......i think he's probably on the smaller side, maybe 4-4.5", is that small? could this be slowing down the process? I'm out of ideas

    No, that's not true at all. Consider the countries with smallest average size - they're the countries with highest populations, so it's certainly not slowing down fertility there!
    (Source on that: http://brobible.com/life/article/ave...is-size-study/)

    No matter what size, ejaculation only occurs in the vagina, whereas the egg is way up in the fallopian tubes/ovary/uterus (depending on the stage of the cycle), so the distance isn't really going to change with a longer penis.
