I think it would be worth going and having a chat with your doc I went after about 8/9 months trying and managed to get the ball rolling with initial blood tests and SA on DH and then referred because I wasn't ovulating which meant by the time my appointment with the consultant had come through we had been TTC for a year. Evern if he tells you to come back in a couple of months at least you know they know your story so when you go back it will just be a formality and they'll put you forward for tests straight away. Good luck though I hope you don't have to go to the docs in the end!

I would go to the doctor now, I waited over two years and wish i had gone sooner. I am in early stage of testing (well not that early - 2months in) and it is going to take another month to see specialist. I would tell them its been 12 months, but you may not feel comfortable with not being completely honest. I think better to know there is a problem sooner than later. If they come up with nothing you will hopefully feel more relaxed and it will happen. Good luck x

I would definitely go sooner....the tests and appointments take soooo long. Sometimes I think they do it on purpose so that you go private....but we dont all have that kind of money in this recession!!!!

One of my biggest regrets is not getting myself checked sooner - so if I could give you one piece of advice it's get the ball rolling as soon as possible. Even if you "fudge" your dates like someone said It won't hurt to get some tests out of the way, don't let them just fob you off

Lots of luck
