    Default Ttc #2 - how long until you would see someone?

    So we've been trying for #2 for a while now, around 7 months (3rd month doing SMEP) and no dice! DS 1 was conceived first cycle so we thought it wouldn't take long again! My cycles are pretty regular, am definitely ovulating and we have been bd'ing A LOT at all the right times. Is it still recommended that you wait 12 months before seeking help even if you've conceived before? Thanks

    Hi Mahalia,
    i have been in the same boat as you, except ttc since October and had one early miscarraige in Feb. So the months go by and I started looking into alternatives to invasive tests/treatments before getting to that 12 month mark and seeking medical advice. I had read some good things about acupuncture for fertility so I made an appointment which fell right when I was about to ovulate. So three treatments a week apart and now a BFP!! I don't know if it is just coincidence, but it might be worth looking into?? Good luck xx

    Hi, yes I think it's recommended to wait the 12 months, despite how torturous it is for you. I waited less when TTC #2 after a quick pregnancy first time but I wasn't having periods this time so knew something was wrong. But as your cycles are regular your GP may not refer you yet.

    I think the acupuncture suggestion is good. Something to try in the meantime until you hit 12 months. Hopefully you'll be pregnant by then!

    Over 35 - 6 months max. Having conceived DS first time and now 14 months later I'm glad I went in after 5 months. Did you have a cs with your first?

    Nope I'd go to my gp at 6 months if you fell very easily the first time. Good luck x

    So sorry to crash this thread but @Bond Girl...I hope you don't mind me asking but did they find out what was wrong in the end? I also fell quickly the first time and then didn't get a period back after giving birth...just wondering what the doctor's suggestion was?

    @Buttercup80 it was unexplained, said I'd probably get my periods back naturally in the end but I wasn't willing to wait indefinitely so saw a fertility specialist and went onto clomid. Once they got the dosage right I ovulated and fell pregnant pretty quickly. This time my cycle returned 9 months post partum (still BF a lot). So who knows for #3!

    Thanks @Bond Girl We are trying for #3 ATM. Number 2 was also clomid (after lots of failed clomid and 2 failed IVF) and I had all my fingers and toes crossed I would get AF back after giving birth but not this time either...Its frustrating being unexplained (although this time they say pitituary 'issues'..whatever that is lol..) so I'm always on the lookout for other girls in the same boat

    @Mahalia27, I wouldn't wait..find a GP that will look into things at 6 months, you don't want to wait a year to find out that something 'may' be wrong when you could of started looking into it earlier. Especially (just in my experience anyway) since it's hard to get anyone to take you seriously when you've already had a baby previously, testing takes a while, I'd look into it asap..

    Thanks for the suggestions ladies - I think I will make an appt and see how I go... I've also been getting weird cramping since DS#1 (ovulation maybe?) that I've never had before and I had fibroids the first time around so I guess it's possible that they've grown/moved and are getting in the way of conception. Things definitely feel different this time around!
