    Default TTC # 2 - At what point do I see a specialist?

    We have been TTC for baby # 2 for 16 months and nothing is happinging. I have PCOS and # 1 came with relative ease. We did nothing but stopped trying to NOT have a baby. However now we are actually trying to have a baby nothing is happening.

    I have recently lost 14kgs and I"m about 7kgs from my goal weight, but this has only seemed to make AF more irregular than when I was heavier. Have reduced my caffine/alcohol intake, currently weaning myself to have NO caffine at all - but this is prooving a little difficult. I'm not sure what else I should be doing, am charting my periods and have an app that tells me when my fertile window should be and when I should be ovulating, but I don't know the signs. Even reading them on here I can't register them with me. But I am fairly oblivious to all my body signs, as sometimes my period sneaks up on me with no tell tale signs either.

    At what point should I see a doctor for help? I'm also thinking about alternative therapies (acupuncture, chinese medicine, naturpathy etc). With so many to choose from out there and with little knowledge in the area I don't know where to start or at what point I should be asking for assistance. It can also be very expensive and I don't want to be spending good money on a useless option when I could be exploring others.

    I would be getting a referral to see an FS now. 16 months is a long time without success. You probably aren't ovulating, given you have PCOS and irregular cycles.
    As for alternative therapies, acupuncture is pretty good in my opinion.


    Also, well done on losing 14kg!!!
