So me and my current boyfriend have been together since December. We've been having sex since March and always used the withdrawal method of birth control. We stopped using any protection after about a month. So now we've been having completely unsafe sex for a little over three months, pretty much every day. How come I haven't gotten pregnant yet?
We think it could be because A.) I'm underweight (only by about five pounds thought) or B.) I smoke cigarettes. I'm a little concerned that maybe one of us could be infertile or something. It's not a huge worry or mine, and I know we wont know unless we see a doctor. But I was wondering if it's safe for me to gain any more weight, if that might really be why it hasn't happened yet. Is this unheard of?

Natalie, are you still using the withdrawal method? Your first paragraph is a little confusing about that.
Three months is not a terribly long time if you're trying. It's frustrating and annoying, but well within the range of normal. Nonetheless, if you're trying to conceive, a chat with your doctor would be a really good idea.
