    Default How long did it take you to conceive your first or how long have you been try...

    First - two months

    for those that took a bit longer, say over 12 months, at what point did you seek medical help? like I can just about handle waiting for the bfp but at what point do you go it's really not happening and I think we should investigate if something is going on. I know the recommended 12 months for under 35s and 6 months for over 35s but at what point did you think ok this might not happen naturally etc?

    With my first we started trying when we got married so I was 19. Since we were young we didn't stress about it too much but after 2 years I went and got a referral to a fertility specialist but decided to wait a few months before using it. And fell pregnant 2 months later.
    With my second pregnancy we knew I had endo and knew that it would be harder to conceive so we didn't actually do anything about it for 3 years when I went and had surgery. I'm kicking myself now for taking so long. In hindsight I should have gone much earlier, I wanted another child by the time my daughter was 3. She turns 5 next month and I'm not even pregnant. So my advice to anyone is the sooner the better, lots of fertility tests can take a while due to needing specific cycle days, get the referral ASAP.

    Lolly, you start off slowing by getting your partners sperm tested, you could monitor ovulation will opks then go and get a bt 7 days after ov.
    Do you temp? Are your cycles over 35 days every cycle?
    There are also things with when and how often you bd that can impact sperm.

    We were about the 18 month mark, but it went on so long bc my DH's SA initially came back fine. So I went through multiple procedures thinking it was me, to find at the 3 year mark it was DH all along. I would urge you to get tested sooner rather than later.

    As to when you know it won't happen naturally - all our conceptions including my losses were natural even though they took years. My advice is pin down what is going on and go from there. If it's your DH it's often easily fixed. DH went from having a 6% progressive motility rate (which is shocking) to me pg in 2 months of taking menevit.

    1st- he was a surprise
    2nd- 6 months of trying (but not really all that enthusiastically in hindsight), got a bfp but miscarried. Our dd was conceived first cycle after mc.
    3rd - we were not trying/not preventing. I had only had 2 cycles after dd was born before getting bfp.

    Reading this thread makes me feel really lucky.

    I've been temping but slacked off a bit now. fairly certain I have clockwork cycles, 26 days and o around day 14 so 12 day luteal phase. I'm o-OMG now but so over it I'm not doing anything about it. I'm fatigued by it all. tried opk one month and it was ok but I'm happier temping to be honest as I like to see the temp rise which confirms ovulation.

    dh has not done a SA but we tried one of those store bought sperm testers which only measures sperm count and it came back normal. obviously that doesn't tell us anything about the sperm motility or morphology but it was a start.

    I don't know if I'm just being impatient/putting too much pressure on myself or whether I should go talk to our GP at least.
