    Default Just not sure

    Hi,
    Hubby and I have been trying to conceive for a year now. This month, AF was due on Sunday, but on the Tuesday and Wednesday before I had some light bleeding, no where near as heavy as normal. Then the rest of my "period" was just spotting. Normally I heavy bleed for 4-5 days. I still have sore boobs. Today I am having cramp like pains and a very sore back and headaches. Should I test?or just count it as my period. I just do not want to be disappointed once again. Thanks 😊

    I had similar story but hubby and i had been trying for 6yrs. We finally went and got tested only to be told we had unexplained infertility as they couldn't find anything wrong with either of us. We were to start treatment January this year. Im writing this with our 7 week old daughter asleep in my arms. I fell pregnant in September last year naturally 😊 i would say test....i know the feeling of not wanting to be disappointed but never give up. Goodluck and baby dust xo

    The doctor will not give me the referral until we have been trying for 2 years.

    Sorry your test was neg. I agree with other posters, see another dr for a referral. I've never heard of needing to try for 2 years. I'm about to start IVF and have seen my FS a few times now. Usually if you are under 35 they recommend trying for 12 months then seeking a referral to FS. If over 35 then it's 6 months.
    Id be seeing a different GP and getting a referral to a FS.
