    Default When do I start to worry?

    DS is 2.5 and we had no issues conceiving - it took six weeks from when we decided to try.
    AF came back in Feb 2012 and we have been seriously TTC since August with (obviously) no luck.

    We are charting, I've got OPKs and we are following SMEP.

    I'm not sure what our next step should be. What tests can be run to see what the problem is? Who do we speak to? I mentioned it to a GP the other day when I was there about something else and he pretty much said it was too soon to worry.

    It just feels like something is not right.

    It took us 12 months with one m/c before this bub stuck. If you are worried keep seeing different people until you find one that takes you seriously. I wish we had pressed the issue much sooner

    How old are you? If you're under 30 the Drs say to wait a year or 3 M/C before testing, over 30 they say 6 months. I say screw that.

    DD was a pleasant surprise. After 7 months of no luck TTC #2 my GP ran some basic blood tests on myself and DH and ordered an SA for DH. Any GP should be happy to at least start with that. If they aren't, find a different one.

    After all that came back normal she was happy to refer me to a FS. So far nothing has been found to be the reason but I'm glad I know that now instead of waiting in case something was wrong. So we're at the 9 month mark (we took 2 months off so I don't count those) and I know now that it's just a matter of time.

    Good luck!!
