Your chances of getting pregnant are just as good with your cousin as with anyone else.  Your cousin-ness has nothing to do with it.  Read though some of the posts here on the science and the risks.  You have nothing to fear simply because you are cousins.

We’ve been trying for a while and I just thought maybe it had to do with that that I haven’t gotten pregnant. But thanks !

Nope.  Maybe a trip to the doctor is in order?  And no, your doctor does not necessarily need to know that you are your partner are cousins.

Dr. Ottenheimer found that, on average, cousins have more children and non-cousins.
