    Thanks again everyone. Have decided I will book both Hubby and I in at a new GP and ask to get tests done and go from there. I would definitely be interested in what tests you got Hummingbird if you don't mind sharing. I don't really know what to ask for!

    I agree with those saying to get a referral to a FS. I had 2 miscarriages and decided I wasn't going to risk another so went to a fertility specialist. I found out I have immune issues which he addressed (I ended up doing IVF). I also did acupuncture and took supplements and now have my four week old bubba.

    I recommend seeing a fertility specialist too eg through and IVF clinic. They can test your hormone levels, eg if your progesterone is low after conception that can lead to problems (fixed easily by taking progesterone pessaries for the first trimester).

    You can still do acupuncture on the side but I think a fertility specialist (doctor) will help more, by working out if you're lacking in something specific or have any issues.
