10 reasons why you can't get pregnant
Reason #1 - Insufficient sex
You may be included in the group of young working and active couples which are too occupied by your personal daily activities and focusing on your career. You may be trapped into a situation where you are too tired and get out the mood to have sex. If you only have sex once a week, it's not enough to get pregnant.
Reason #2 - Wrong times for Sex
You probably are not aware that the best time to have sex is when your ovulation occurs. At this stage your egg (ovum) is ready to meet the winning spermatozoa of your spouse and gets fertilized. Try to have a sex session a week before and after your ovulation, every other day will be perfect.
Reason #3 - Smoking
A cigarette contains around 4.000 dangerous substances that are considered to cause cancer. Smoking tends to reduce your fertility and can endanger your coming baby. Try hard to stop smoking. AS for men, smoking definitely lowers sperm count.
Reason #4 - Drinking Alcohol
Drinking more than four units in a week may reduce the probability to get pregnant by one third. This is because you lose appetite and at the end lose your energy.
Reason #5 - Imbalanced Diet
A balanced diet doesn't always mean to cut out all your favorite foods and applying a strict eating schedule, but it could be simply eating food in a moderate way and quantity, no overdoing. Additional vitamins, minerals and food supplements will support your healthy pregnancy.
Reason #6 - Uncontrolled Weight
If you're overweight or obese, bringing your weight to its normal levels is very important, since overweight decreases the chances to get pregnant. Obesity tends to affect the menstrual cycle which becomes irregular and unpredictable.
The same is with underweight where there is a tendency of poor appetite which may cause insufficiency in energy needed to support a normal pregnancy. Consult your doctor to help you controlling your weight.
Reason #7 - Too much caffeine
Drinking a cup of coffee or tea daily will be okay. But don't have more than that. Caffeine tends to decrease fertility in women and lower sperm counts in males. Caffeine is also known to cause low birth weight babies and increases the probability of miscarriage. Just play safe, the official maximum daily recommendation by the FDA is 200 mg during pregnancy.
Reason #8 - No exercises
Many people just neglect the benefit of exercise for whatever reason. The primary benefit of exercising to get pregnant is that you will be in a perfect condition to have quality sex more frequently. But do not over-exercise!
Reason #9 - Strong obsession about getting pregnant
You might be so excited to get pregnant which can turn into an obsession. This isn't good. The stronger the obsession the bigger the worry to fail in fulfilling your expectation. Finally it will put you in a serious stressful condition. Stress may cause menstrual irregularity and might affect the ovulation process. It will also negatively affect your relation with your partner that can affect your sex life.
Reason #10 - Possible infertility problems
In women there are two conditions which make it difficult to facilitate a normal pregnancy which are Endometrioisis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, while in men the most common fertility problem is an inadequate sperm count.

But we are of the mindset, if it happens it happens, if not who cares, there are plenty of other people having 3+ kids to make up for us not having any.
Besides, financially we are much more stable, we have a ton of freedom to enjoy our own lives and as we are both approaching 40 we tend to not want kids now since we're set in our ways.
Don't fret it, enjoy your lives. You weren't put here to "have babies", in reality there is no reason for life, we just are.
