I fell pregnant with my now 4 and a half year old son and we weren't even trying. He was a very welcomed surprise. My husband and I are now trying to have another baby but aren't having any luck. We've been trying for 8 months now.
Is it possible that there may be infertility issues now that weren't there 5 years ago?
My husband is 29 and I am 25

Trying to conceive after 5 years

Yes, I had the same experience with #1 and #2
It took 6 years and I required fertility treatment. It's called secondary infertility.

Yes absolutely, we fell easily with my now 4 year old and have been trying for number 2 for 2 1/2 years with no luck

Eight months feels like forever, but at your age fertility specialists won't even consider running tests until you've been tracking ovulation for 12 months.
A few things to think about....
* are your periods regular?
* can you pinpoint ovulation? Are you DTD'ing at the right time?
* do you or DH use cannabis? This (and other drugs, including pharmaceutical) can have a drastic impact on the motility of sperm. Over indulgence in alcohol can have a similar impact I've heard.
* have you ever been diagnosed with any reproductive issue? Pcos, endo, etc?
