What should I ask doctor at first infertility appointment?

Postby anna123321 » Mon Jan 01, 2018 7:56 pm

I've been trying to conceive for about 15 months now with no luck, and we've not been using protection for about 2.5 years now. I have my first appointment with my OB/GYN next week and I'm wondering what sort of questions I should ask? Are there any specific tests I should make sure get done?

I'm almost 31 and I have fibroid tumors. My doctor doesn't think that they are in a location that would prevent conception or pose any problems with pregnancy, but I'm wondering if this is playing a role in my infertility. I don't have any other health problems.

This may sound strange but I have a gut feeling that I'm just not fertile anymore. When I was around 27 I had a real deep physical urge to become pregnant, but at that time it wasn't right for me so I wasn't trying. But now that I'm ready, that urge isn't there. I still really want to have a baby but the feeling that my body is telling me to have a baby is gone. Has anyone else experience anything like this?

Thanks for any advice!

I had a bunch of lab work done and everything came back normal except I had a very low progesterone level. My doctor wants to get a sperm analysis for my partner and for me to get a hysterosalpingogram. She also wants to start me on Chlomid after we get those two things done. In the meantime I'm going to start progesterone supplements after ovulation in hopes this may help.
