Hi ladies! My name is Meegan, and DH and I are TTC #2. We got a BFP last year when our DS was 6 months, but I m/c in December. We've been trying ever since, and so far, nothing good. We used to call me Fertile Myrtle, because both time I did get pregnant, it was "one shot wonders" lol. So my question for you is: at what point should I call my doctor to talk about this, and what path would he most likely choose for us? I really have no experience with any other TTC methods other than the normal ones (OPKs, charting, CM, CP, etc). Thanks for your help!

It is really difficult to answer this question. Since I am 32 & DH is 39 (this month), our ob didn't wait long to give me the referral but before getting that, he did prescribe to me Clomid b/c I had been charting & showing late O or no O at all. I would go armed w/ all your info from charting & ask at what point s/he is willing to "help" you guys out a bit.

I was referred to an RE after 3 miscarriages by my OB. Like Astrid said, I agree with her - it's difficult to answer the question. It seems so many OB's are different on time frames, etc. If I had asked, I think my OB would have referred me after the second m/c, but I thought I was really just having bad luck.

I wish you all the best of luck

It also depends on your insurance. Sometimes insurance companies require you to be trying for a certain amount of time. And they are tricky too, they will say to wait a year from your miscarriage and not a year from when you started trying because even though it did not end in a "live birth" they still count it as a pregnancy. That is how they get people. I think once you have 3 m/c you can be refered and there are other things as well. All depends on your docs, and your insurance

Thanks for the info ladies, it was very helpful. I just wasn't sure where to start, so to speak. So I'll start with my insurance company, then call my doc to set up an appointment to at least talk about what he wants us to do. Thanks again!
