    Default When to take the next step?

    Hi all just wondering if I could get some thoughts on my situation. I am 30 been ttc for 1 year and a bit in that time I have had two early miscarriages. (5 week mark ). I have seen an ob who did testing ( blood clotting karotyping, hysterosonogram) all came back normal took a 3 month break to get the rubella booster and now back at trying again this is our 2nd month trying again since the break.. just wondering how long should I keep trying for before seeking more help. And does that mean straight to fertility specialist or to the ob? Only advice she gave me was take aspirin and come see her when I get pregnant for progesterone. Thanks!

    If I were you hun I would ask to see a fertility specialist to get his/her opinion. If you feel you might get pregnant again naturally it might just be that they can support you with some progesterone support or maybe clexane as a blood thinner. They may also suggest an iui instead procedure so they have more control over the conception ie they can check if the lining is sufficient and if your hormones are generally as they should be. I don't think it would hurt to get an opinion and see what they say. Good luck hun xx

    Going from experience with infertility and even my own ob/fs/gyno would actually suggest getting a laporoscopy first to see what is going on first. We where on ivf for years on recommendation from a diff fs which switched a couple years ago and I had a Lapo, stage 3 endo a fibroid tumour all cut out. 5 months later pregnant naturally I have a nearly 7 month old ds now

    This is what I would do. Have the Lapo try for 6 months if nothing has happened then go ivf

    The Hysterosonogram looks at your uterus vaginally where as the lap with give you a better picture of your internal organs as a camera is put into your stomach to look for endometriosis or other issues. I have just had a lap myself. Wazza my fertility specialist says that they are not used as the first form of treatment anymore and I only had one done as I have been at this game so long and he wanted to do ovarian drilling at the same time to treat my pcos. I think fertility specialists might now suggest less invasive treatments as a first form of treatment although different fs might have different opinions.

    If I had my time again I wouldn't have mucked around with the local gyno/ob. I would have gone straight to a fertility specialist. Wasted 12 months that way. FS will repeat any tests you've had done anyway so may as well get them all done in one go!
    It's not necessarily straight to IVF, they might pick up some reason for your troubles with more thorough testing.
    My FS was going to send me for a lap if my third IVF cycle was unsuccessful. I don't think it's standard to go for a lap straight away unless something is suspected eg: endometriosis. I never went for the lap as we got lucky that cycle.
    Best of luck.
    ETA: how long you keep trying is totally up to you and how patient you are. I am a control freak and always need a plan so perhaps 6 months of trying, then have your FS appointment?

    I would go to a FS. Although 30 is a good age, it's the second or third child that age can sneak up on you.
