I am 38 (just) and my oh is 47. We have been trying to conceive for only about 3 months now which i know is not long at all. However, i am wondering at what stage, should we go to the docs to be referred for fertility help etc. I have had my blood tests done recently and everything is within normal limits (my fsh was below 6) and my oh had a sperm test last year and everything was normal for him too. I am just wondering at what stage we should go back to the docs and ask for help. When i saw my doc recently and i told her i had been trying 4 or 5 months (slight white lie obviously) she said they wouldnt refer us and implied it was far too early. But bearing in mind i am 38 and he is 47 ... i dont feel that we want to wait too long. Or should the fact that we have both got ok tests back at present, indicate that everything is ok and we should just keep trying ? My oh has a son already so i do know that we wouldnt receive free treatment on the nhs, which financially is also a concern. Sorry for the long post but other than checking my fsh, what else can they check ? I have heard that you can have scans etc to make sure everything is ok but i dont know what these entail.
