    We started young also we were 23 when we started ttc. We assumed it would be immediate success as both sides of our family are full of whoopsie babies. We were the first in 3 generations to be married before kids!!
    I went to GP after just 6 months and told her it had been over 12 months. I didn't feel guilty; I knew something was wrong and I was right. If we had waited longer we would maybe still be waiting!!

    I think my partner would be a bit hesitant to get himself tested as I think he would be quite embarrassed if something was wrong, so I will get tested first and see from there.
    Wish this was easier. We have even looked at just going straight into doing an ivf cycle in the hope that we would only need one.

    If you go into IVF then you will have to have a full assessment done on you both with invasive testing anyway. So it makes sense to start looking into some of those tests now. I know tests aren't easy, but sorry to say he might just need to suck it up and be a man. The way I see it, if there's a problem there's a problem. Not knowing about it by refusing to test doesn't make the problem go away.
    There's a very good chance you can find an easily fixed issue long before IVF is on the cards. You'd need to see a GP for referral to a fertility clinic anyway. And access to a few thousand dollars...

    Default Nicest November Testing Thread

    Babymummatobe firstly I'm so sorry to hear what a hard time you've had ttc it it must be hard!

    I defiantly think you should see a doctor regardless of your age doctors aren't there to judge they are there to help.. That being said I'm only 3 years older than you and had no problems with the doctor taking me seriously.

    I think you should see one and see how you go so many success stories on clomid you've got nothing to lose I would also try this before jumping straight to IVF.. That will be our next opinion if fertility drugs don't work

    I completely understand all the tests, etc. I just wish it was easier to get help and not so hard. It's especially hard when we have a lot of friends around us "accidentally" getting pregnant left, right and centre and then there's us actively trying and it's not happened yet.

    Money isn't really a problem, however I'd prefer to not go down the IVF route if not necessary. I think DP thinks that ivf will just guarantee success which is most definitely not the case.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you tell the doctor? I'm quite stressed about seeing a doctor so would like to go in with practically a speech prepared and rehearsed hahaha.
    I would really like to try clomid, so I'm trying to find a GP who is also an ob/gyn so I won't have to stuff around going to see a FS and taking longer.

    I guess I can't really relate when you say you wish it wasn't so hard getting help, cos we have never had any issues getting help at all.
    If you're struggling to be heard by your GP just find another one u til they stop and listen.

    Maybe go to a doctor that your not really familiar with so you don't feel as nervous? I went to a new doctor I just said that I have been trying to conceive with my partner for about 12 months and have not been successful I told her I had PCOS and believed that could be the cause but instead of saying that you could explain the trouble that you have had over the last few years... She then went through the three options and we both agreed fertility specialist would be the best option but she said she would get my blood test and ultrasound done first cause the FS would tell me to do it anyway so she said there should only be one consultation fee opposed to two you should be fine especially with your history

    Thank you for your reply.
    I've actually just booked an appointment with a doctor I saw in the early pregnancy unit when I had my miscarriages. I'm hoping because I've seen her before for those reasons that she will be understanding.

    I've just had problems in the past with doctors just thinking I'm exaggerating and being brushed off because I'm young and should give it some time.

    I think if this doctor brushes it off you should say if you can't help me can you please refer me to someone that can.. Although given she knows your past she shouldn't brush you off. When is your appointment? Good luck x
