Hi everyone, I'm just wondering what other's experiences were when it came to seeking assistance with ttc.
Dh and I have been TTC #3 for 13 months. We did conceive in October '13 but lost bub at 5 weeks. Our other children are twins, we were TTC for 4 months when I fell pregnant with them. Ever since the mc, my cycles have been all over the place - I've had 6 cycles in 10 months which is really bugging me. I am starting to think it might be time to see a doctor but DH isn't convinced that we need to be looking at that just yet.
I don't know what to do

When did you decide to seek assistance with TTC?

We went after 6 months but that was because we were in our late 30's and the GP at our pre-TTC check up suggested to go back early if we didn't have success. By the time they do a few blood tests etc it takes a while to get to any serious checking so it probably wouldn't hurt to see a GP.

We booked a FS appointment after trying for just over one year. We're in our early/mid thirties so didn't want to wait too long. I'd also had an early mc when we had first started trying. BUT a few days before our FS appointment we fell pregnant!

After 4 months (i lied to get assessed sooner and said 6 mts) although My cycles were not regular and i 'knew' something was wrong.
Initial appt can sometimes take a couple of months to get into, then a couple of months of tests and tracking before you even start on anything if needed so another 6 months can fly by before you're doing anything. I ended up getting preg naturally after initial assessments and 10mts ttc but lost it at 12 weeks and totally stopped ovulating after that point (still getting af, just no ovulation). Because i was being monitored i found out pretty quickly continuing trying was futile and started ivf. Whole ttc process to get to ivf took 18mts and that was 'speeding it up'.
My only advice is get help sooner than later.
May be they tell you all looks normal and you choose to continue naturally. At least you know. If they find an issue at you can choose to get help if you want to.

I went to an fs to investigate possible endometriosis after 9 months ttc and 1 mc. They found nothing in the laparoscopy and because we had conceived naturally we decided to wait another 6 months before trying some natural therapies for 6 months and then eventually going back to fs for clomid and eventually ivf.

we were a long time, but that was because DH didnt really want to do anything about it.
How old are you?
the thing is, it can sometimes take a while ... and if you have had a m/c in that time it can mess up your cycles so its hard.
I would perhaps make an appointment ... it takes a while to get in, and if you fall pregnant while you are waiting, you can always cancel

Thanks for your replies ladies.
DH and I are both 25. I am going to make a GP appointment first and have a check-up and go from there I think.
I have no doubt my mc messed my cycles. They've gone like this: 48, 52, 36, 46, 52 & 38. Pretty hard to narrow down my fertile window with a range like that!

As others have said, it does take a while to get through all the tests. Your DH will have to do a semen analysis but you'll need bloods, an u/s and possibly other procedures such as a HSG (which is where they run dye through your tubes to make sure they aren't blocked) or a laparoscopy. I waited over a year in the public system to get my lap so get things moving now.
Your wacky cycles are probably hormone imbalance and can be checked by bloods.
