8 months TTC


Hello ladies,

I'm hoping for some advice.

I have regular cycles and a constant 14 day LP. This is month 8 now, I'm so over TTC DH & I are 31 and healthy. I know you're not eligible for help until you've been ttc 12 months but has anyone else been to see their GP/doctor before hitting the 12 month mark?

I want to go but DH says that I'm getting ahead of myself. Has anyone else done this? I'm so fed up as is DH. We just want to start our family, why is TTC so hard thank you to anyone that replies and sending you all love & baby dust x x x

Have you tried temping, opk's, and checking your cm? If not I would say do that and when you do make a appointment and go you'll be that much father along on the process plus the temping and OPK's will confirm ovulation. Good Luck!

plus you could always go ahead and make a dr appointment anyway, right now my obgyn has like a 3 month waiting list to get into.

Thank you for replying mom22boys.

I do not temp because I work shifts and get up during the night but I do use opks and get postives although they only stay postive for a few hours if that.

I also check my CM and I get EWCM for a few days before the big O. I also get very obvious O pains, I get it all just no bfp

I think I will do what you said and just book an apt with my doctor, thank you & good luck to you too x x

I TTC-ed for a year.

I had my progesterone and hubby's sperm checked around 6th cycles, to make sure I ovulated and no issue with his sperms.

My doctor started me on Clomid about 5 months into trying. However, I've always had irregular periods, so we kind of figured there was no point in waiting. I really think it just depends on your doctor. We're now going on 10 months trying. Sigh.

Good luck to you!

I have been ttc for 8 months and pretty much fed up. I lied to the doc and said we had been ttc for 1 year so i could see a FS now. Turns out i couldnt get an appoint with a FS for over two months (which is next month) but i also had my prog checked last month and want OH to have a SA but he is reluctant to do that yet. I just got AF two days ago and spent yesterday at a family wedding surrounded by babies and preg women, to make it worse also had alot of "when will you have kids" question thrown at me.

It wouldnt hurt to see a GP now and have a blood test done 7 days after ovulating to see what ur hormone levels are. Good luck!

I have been TTC since Feb but my cycles are very irregular so I am presuming/hoping that is the reason I haven't conceived yet!

I'm not into lying at all but if I was you I would do what Katie Blue did and just say you have been TTC for 12 months. I'm thinking of doing the same soon! Although I'd have to go to a new doc, lol.

TTC is a total rollercoaster and I know how hard it is to deal with the waiting/disappointment/hope/obsession!

Katie Blue - that really sux about the wedding. Family gatherings can be cruel when TTC. I am still looking for a good response to that terrible 'when are you having kids' question!
