    Good luck op, have you been under extra stress this month? I know that can delay my period

    I think your GP is wrong and I would give it a month and go back and demand a referral to a FS (people on here will tell you who to ask for depending on what city you're in). Some have wait times and I think it's best to get the ball rolling. Hopefully you need never use their services and it happens naturally.

    I'm probably a bit pushy on issues like this as my family has fertility issues. I just know how important time is and it kills me to see my friends wait. Since fertility drops off in most people at 38 if you don't have your first child till 36 it's either a close gap or an only child.

    I'm single and went it alone as I knew there was a good chance I would be infertile at 35 like my sister. It's good you're trying, I just don't want bad GP advice to delay you.

    You can start by asking for a day 21 progesterone test but get it 7 days after you think you ovulated not actual day 21 unless you ovulate on day 14.

    Then a scan for your ovaries that's how I started fertility testing

    I'm 32 and wouldn't wait a year, I would definitely go see somebody after 6 months. I think if you're definitely 7 days late a line would be showing. I know Ally is pregnant but think the instructions say not to read the results after the allowed time they state. Maybe test again in a couple days or go to GP for a blood test if you definitely want to rule out pregnancy or late period.

    Thanks everyone, that's a lot to think about! I'll follow Kirst33 advice and get a blood test tomorrow, then look into a Specialist after that if it is negative

    I had 31 day cycles before I got pregnant with my ds, I tested around day 31, it was negative and I waited for af which didn't come and then tested again when I was quite late (i think around 10 days) and got a faint pos on a home test. I had a blood test the next morning and it was consistent with only just 4 weeks pregnant, not 5 as it would be if you were going off my LMP (day 1 of last cycle). I think I must have ovulated around day 20 something. My son is now 2 so totally possible. Can you ask for a blood test this week?

    I agree with the others too, ask for a referral to a fs, worst case scenario you cancel an appt if you are pregnant! Many have long waiting lists for an appt. See if your gp can do some baseline bloods for you and request a semen analysis for your partner, at least you can be proactive and have some results before you go. I would ask for a d21 progesterone and d2 hormones (fsh, lh, e2 and an AMH if there is a lab near you who will do it). Hopefully you'll get a bfp soon anyways and you won't need it!

    Are your periods consistently 30 days apart? Or do they vary? My cycle is 30 days, like clockwork. When I was pregnant last year I got a faint positive the day before my period was due, but very very faint and all the tests I had done later (ie bloods and scans) showed I had ovulated a little later than what the calendar estimated. You never know what's going on in that body of yours!! A blood test will be the most conclusive way to give you peace of mind either way. Fingers crossed!
