    Default 25 years old ttc for 8 months and nothing

    There are plenty of other fertility treatment options before IVF also. It may not come to that yet.

    I havent read all the other posts but you need to get your partner checked out. Im also 25 and had an early mc after ttc6 months and just recently got another bfp after 11months ttc. All my tests came back fine aswell. Sometimes it just takes longer.

    Try not to lose hope. Maybe start temp charting etc
    Good luck!

    You mentioned 25-30% between 25 and 30... just isnt the case. A healthy couple with everything working perfectly has 20-25% chance each month.

    Also. Ill vouch for your families fertility history has NOTHING to do with your own. My mum has me only, She had me via IVF and went back for a 2nd child and it never happened. She doesnt ovulate and has "unexplained" infertility (which was the name for it, 30 yrs ago!)

    All blood related females in my family have been to fertility specialists with PCOS etc and all have had issues conceiving.

    I marched into my GP the first month of trying and given my family history I demanded a Fertility specialist referral.

    Given that history.... Clearly i would be in the same boat ?

    Negative. I was pregnant first month I tried.

    I highly doubt there is anything wrong with you. You have confirmed by bloods you ovulate. If you honestly do not skip sex and make sure you definitly do it every 2-3 days minimum at least for the 2 weeks following the end of your period you will of hit the spot.

    A common reason to not getting a BFP is simply not DTD at the right time of the month

    Remember, Healthy weight, age, ovulating and doing it at the right time .. Its still a one in 5 chance each month. No more chance one month to the other.

    You arent alone. Im sure it will happen for you!

    I think it depends on the person involved more than anything as to what is "normal" or not. For some couples it may be normal to take up to 2 years to conceive. While for others more than a few months ttc would be abnormal. It has a lot to do with hormones levels as well. Couples that have bad hormone levels but still within "normal" limits (there is a wide range of "normal") may normally take up to a year or more. While if your hormones are excellent, you should have a much higher chance per month of conceiving, for example up to 70% per month. It needs to be judged on an individual basis.

    I'm not saying you have nothing wrong, but saying there is ALWAYS a reason for not conceiving within 8 months is simply not true. It can and does happen.

    At the age of 23, my brother and SIL tried for 14 months for their first and had every test under the sun, nothing wrong. Just after they got the all clear they fell pregnant. They since went on to have 4 more children which they conceived within a few months of trying.

    Also, excellent fertility is definitely not hereditary. You can't compare your fertility against the rest of your family. If you are concerned, get a referral for a fs. Keep in mind they will want to see and test both of you.

    TTC is a massive emotional rollercoaster and often stress can interfere with getting pregnant. You sound like you are at the end of your tether so best to get the tests done and get professional advice. Just prepare yourself it may be they tell you it's just going to take time because you are both normal. Best of luck x

    Default 25 years old ttc for 8 months and nothing

    Agree. I know it's easy to assume there's something wrong, but the fact is, humans are generally infertile. There's a 20% chance each cycle, that's not much. In the last 6 months I've done 4 cycles, one at home and 3 IUIs. I've had one chemical pregnancy, 2 negatives from the IUI.

    Think about what a journey it is for those swimmers? Up through the vagina, into the cervix, up the top of the uterus, into the tubes and down the tubes that are bumpy - like a mountain range for something as minuscule as sperm! It's amazing any ever make it.

    I had 60 million perfect sperm squirted into my uterus while ovulating and still didn't get pregnant- it's hard!

    By the way, I'm 23 and have no issues, we are a same sex couple which is why we are going through a clinic.

    We're onto IVF now and it's not a decision to make lightly when you're only 8 months in. Firstly, no GP will write you a referral until you've been ttc at least 12 months, maybe 18. Secondly, it's going to cost us upwards of $10k. You get some back from Medicare, but it's a massive outlay!

    Personally if it had even crossed my mind that my parter may have had a vasectomy without my knowledge, I'd be questioning if I trusted them enough to make a baby with them.

    AMY - In the UK a couple has to have been ttc for 12 months before they will carry out tests. That's because it is not unusual for it to take 8-9-10-11 months to get pregnant. It takes the average healthy couple (between 20 and 35) 5 months to conceive. You are only 3 months over the average so you really shouldn't be panicking. Echoing what others have said, you have a 1 in 5 chance of getting pregnant each month if you have sex while you are ovulating. If you think about it, that means we all have an 80% chance of not getting pregnant each month. Each month is the same, so the odds are against us I'm afraid. I know it's not much comfort, but it just takes time and for some women it's a little longer than others. Also, a lot of women fall pregnant when they stop trying because stress is a factor which works against you when ttc.

    With regards to the chlamydia, I believe it only leads to infertility issues if left untreated for YEARS. That point is stressed so much in an attempt to make people get checked out, because there are often no symptoms. You found it after only months, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.

    This may not be any of my business, but why are you in such a rush to have a baby with a man that you don't trust? I don't want to sound patronising, but really think about that.

    Im 22 and have been trying for the same. As frustrating as it is I still have many baby makin years ahead of me so just trying to relax. I must just have an extra special baby in the making that needs a bit more time!
