    And got the pathology forms for DH to get a sperm count done.

    I also talked to him about when I can start testing. He said if DH's sperm is fine, then to go back and have regular blood tests to find out if i'm ovulating or not - if I am - give it some time, if i'm not (according to a OPK last month I did) then he will send me to a specialist.

    I feel a bit better now that we have a plan - we're heading into our 6th month, but I just want to be sure nothing is wrong.

    Thanks everyone!

    I didn't think he'd test me so early, I asked if I had to wait 12 months, and he said there is no point in trying for that long incase i'm not ovualting - that it would be a waste of time.

    So if we don't get preg this month, i'll go see him (well, actually my other GP, I like her better) and find out for sure if i'm ovulating...if I am then it will just take time, but if i'm not then he will send me to a specialist to get me ovulating.

    He seemed a little concerned that I said we've been using OPK's for the last few months, have been trying for nearly 6 months and having plenty of sex and still not preg - since we're quite young still.

    He told us not to worry, that 6 months isn't that long, but went through procedures that we can do if i'm not ovulating, what causes infertility, then he went into IVF - I was like WHAT :o He kind of spun me out a bit because he branched out to scenarious that we haven't even thought of ourselves!

    Anyway, first things first, sperm count for DH, then blood tests to see if i'm ovulating - hopefully everything is fine and its just a time thing.

    I was tested for endometriosis about 6 years ago, so I know that I don't have that - I gotta try not to worry I guess!

    Wow! The docs in Auz don't hang about, do they? Brilliant though that they take an interest so early on.

    Glad you are getting tests done FJL. I fell pregnant when i was waiting for IUI and i think psycologically I fell because i was relaxed that something was being done about it if you know what i mean. x

    Good luck and enjoy the practicing. OH is sexually frustrated now, bless him
