Hi nikkij,

Thanks for posting for your friend. May I ask how old she is? The inability to conceive while actively trying for more than one year can be classified as infertility by a doctor. If your friend has three children from a previous relationship, then the doctor may look into her husband to determine if his sperm is viable. Also, I asked for her age because as we age, our ability to conceive also decreases so this should also be taken into consideration. 

Your friend and her husband should first see their doctor and s/he may refer them to a fertility specialist to perform any appropriate tests. 

All the best,
