  • Without going to a doctor for complete check of everything...your females parts, hormone levels, that kind of stuff there is really nothing more you can do except keep trying.

  • Dont be nervous. They do all the "easy" tests first. Like blood work & just a physical & they ask a lot of questions about your health history & your cycles. It could be something simple so I wouldnt stress about it. Good luck.

  • my DH and I tried on our own for 3 years, before we finally decided we should try fertility treatments. The first appointment they went over both of our medical history, and did blood work for hormone levels on me, and a sperm count for him. When we went back in, they said his sperm was off the charts good, but my hormones were ALL outta whack. It took us 9 rounds of being on birth control for 2 weeks, then getting a period and taking clomid, and then getting ultrasounds every other day until they thought I was ready for my trigger shot, and then 2 days latter of getting an IUI before it finally worked. TTC is a hard process, both mentally, emotionally and physically. I wish you the best of luck. Just know that even if you go in for fertility treatments, it's not guaranteed to work right away. I was thinking 2 maybe 3 rounds max, but it took 9, so just be prepared for whatever your body decides to do.
