    Default 25 years old ttc for 8 months and nothing

    I have been ttc for 8/9 months and still nothing. I have been tested at GP and everything came back normal, am ovulating, normal ultrasound, regular periods, no pain, no history of std's....

    Have NO IDEA what could be wrong. I am so confused and upset. Anyone else had any experience like this, and any idea what could be wrong????

    There is nothing fun about wondering if i'm truly barren.

    Everyone else in my family gets pregnant in like the first or second month.

    he already has 2 kids from a previous relationship. And in his words his ex gf was "always going to the abortion clinic", so unless he has had a vasectomy then there should be no problems.

    It can take a healthy couple under 30 up to 12 months to conceive. So I would try not to worry too much yet, especially as all your test results are clear.

    Wouldn't hurt to get your partners sperm tested, just to rule him out.

    Have you been charting ovulation? You could try using OPKs or try taking your BBT temp and charting so you have a better idea of when you are ovulating and when you should be DTD.

    I know that's what they say up to 12 months, but it's hard not to worry. I think it looks like there is something very wrong. I don't do any charting, as i think you only need to have sex every day or two and it should be fine.

    If you are worried and really think something is wrong then ask your GP for a referral to a fertility specialist. A lot won't see you unless you have been TTC for a year though, but you could try.

    Yes i have an appointment end of Jan 2013. My GP is really good and as soon as I told her I was stressed and I needed to see someone she agreed. I also informed her that my mum conceived in the first month both times when she was over 30. so why this is happening to me at 25 I don't know.

    Just because you think it should be fine, doesn't mean it is. Maybe it's worth starting to chart just in case. You may learn some valuable information.

    I was told up by a gp up to 18 months when ur between 25-30 yrs old. And that u only have about a 1 in 5 chance each cycle if everything is in your favour.

    Still worth getting ur partner tested. Perhaps his ex was very very fertile rather than him being extra potent. 40% of infertility comes from the men's side, 40% from women's and 10% both.
