User avatar There is not enough information here to determine if you need more testosterone. You should see your doctor about that.

Two months is really not very long to try for pregnancy. It typically takes a few months. In healthy young women who have sexual intercourse regularly, most will become pregnant within a year so anything less than that would not be considered infertility.

Marijuana can affect fertility adversely so I would advise you to stop.

If nothing happens within the year, you may want to see a urologist or ferility dpecialist.
