How did you know?


For the folks who have had fertility testing and things done, I have a question for you. How did you decide that it was time to go have everything checked out? What was the process/ what initial tests did you have done (if that's not too intrusive)? My husband and I have been trying for 6 months and I know that they tell you to wait a year, but it just seems like it's time to at least get some initial tests done. I've been tracking my cycles, checking CM, using OPKs (and now a fertility monitor), temping, he's on a preconception multi, I'm taking prenatals, we have been using Preseed, and we're following the SMEP plan. I would think that all of that should improve our chances, right? Idk, but I don't want to spend another 6 months TTC and find out after a year that we needed this or that medical intervention. I mean, if everything checks out fine, then no harm no foul. If there is a problem, then knowing now might just save us some heartbreak. Am I jumping the gun?

Do you have other symptoms other than not conceiving yet that you could bring up? I went to my doctor the first month we tried and explained that I have suspected my hormones are wacky and I want to get them sorted before pregnancy.

It turns out my ovaries are polycystic, which was a surprise to me because I have extremely regular periods- 28 days to a T. But the rest of my hormones looked good and she gave me progesterone supplements. I am happy I did this since they suspect that low progesterone could cause miscarriages. I'm relieved that I know this now instead of later. I was sick to my stomach thinking of ignoring my suspicions only to find out after a miscarriage.
