User avatar Hello,
No, this would not affect your fertility or conception. The most important thing is for your doctor to be aware so he/she can monitor any cervical changes that might occur.

It is normal for it to take up to a year to achieve a pregnancy when you are trying so patience is your best plan.

Most experts recommend having sex every other day while trying to conceive and especially around days 8 through 19 of your cycle (start counting on the first day of your menstrual cycle).

Good luck.
