My DH and I are on our ninth month TTC. My cycles are regular, I am at a normal weight, I eat healthfully, exercise, but I have extremely painful PMS and am under an extreme amount of stress at work.
My husband had an S/A done and it came out normal. I had a pap smear and brief exam last month and she said everything was fine.
My question is, do you think I should go in for testing? If so, what tests should I ask for? Do you think there might be something wrong with me? Should we wait until it's been a year of TTC to seek medical help?
(Am I overreacting? )
alot of dr's wont even look at ya till you are at least a year into it.so if u are concerned lie and tell them its been a year lol. good luck hon.dont worry to much especially if u are regular every mth.
Yeah, some doctor's won't look at you until it has been a year so I agree...... Just tell a little fib!!!! My husband and I have unexplained infertility. This is our 14th cycle TTC. Like you, I am very regular and ovulate like clock work. My husband's SA was normal and so was my HSG. So they will probably do an HSG and bloodwork first on you. Good luck to you. I know it is very frustrating. Especially when you feel like your body is doing everything right.
Personally, I would go in and ask for tests. Like the other ladies said, fib a little and say its been a year. It won't hurt to get a head start on getting medical help with TTC. I honestly wished that I would have went sooner and maybe I would already be preggo. Please keep us updated on this. If you need to talk PM me anytime!! GOOD LUCK GIRL!!
Just like the other girls said, most doctors won't look at you until you have been TTC for a year. Mine won't and since I told her last time I was in for a check up Ir how long we had been TTC I was supposed to wait. After several more months of us not getting pregnant DH went to a urologist and had a S/A done. Now, he has three and the conclusion: very low count among other things. So, now we have to wait for his doctor to get back on MOnday to take the first step. I am glad that we started looking into this before our year was up because we do have infertility problems. Follow your instincts they are usually right.
Thank you, I called my gyno this morning and scheduled an appointment for August after DH and I return from St. Lucia. I feel relieved that she's going to help me. I'll let you know what happens. Thanks again for your posts!
Thank you. I can't wait. It's actually our very belated honeymoon. After our wedding, we bought a house and couldn't afford a honeymoon at the time as well. So, finally, time for the honeymoon! Maybe we'll come back with a little baby Lucia, ha ha!
I've been TTC for 14 months (actually got pregnant last August and m/c in October). I am also VERY regular and healthy. I asked my dr. if she would check my progesterone levels and she did and guess what....THEY WERE LOW! Not too low because I still ovulate but I guess when I do O it isn't very "good". So she put me on Clomid this month.
Good luck! I think you'll feel a lot better about things when you can start testing and it will help put your mind to rest. Heck, you'll probably get pregnant on our honeymoon trip!
