Hello to all you wonderful ladies,
My husband (29) and I (25) have been trying for our first baby for just under a year (it feels like much much more than that!). We are both relatively healthy but we each have some issues;
DH: has type 1 diabetes (well controlled),has Chrones disease (which he takes a medication that can interfere with speem count/quality)
Because of this he got a referral to city fertility just to check his swimmers; that came back better than expected -high count but average morphology.
Me: was on the pill for 10 years and since coming off that my cycles have been wacky, the last six cycles things have started to even out (cycles between 31-35 days ovulating between CD18-23.
My delemia is, when DH got the initial referral he also got one for a follow up consultation for both of us. I'm not sure if I should make an appointment. I want to but am scared that they will find something wrong. DH said maybe we should wait, keep trying and see a specialist when we have been trying a year from when my cycles started to even out -which would mean another 6 months? Sorry for the long post. I just get really disheartened each month...... Any advice would be greatly appreciated! xx

Hi Mrskatiex speaking from experience i only tried for 2 months and then i went to the doctors because im paranoid! turned out i have an ovarian cyst which is from endometriosis. I am going to have surgery next month and am so happy i got checked out!
I am sure there is nothing wrong with you but i can only speak from experience that it is better to know and get treated than to have tortured myself and kept trying.
I hope that this has not scared you and again im sure you are perfectly healthy but if you are worried and you have a follow up appointment i would just take it!
Best of luck

He is prob feeling the same as you in that he is worried they will find something wrong. I would suggest make the appointment for a few months away (closer to 3 than 6) as a bit of a compromise, then relax don't "try" for a few months just have fun.
