New here and wondering when everyone started investigating potential hurdles to conceiving. Here are the stats:
TTC 1 year, 8 months
I have had -
ultra sound - uterus and ovaries are totally normal
Blood test - confirmed ovulation
OPKs - turn positive during my cycle
25-28 day cycles
Hubby has never been tested... and he's not too game for investigating. He has agreed to do an SA finally... He thinks we shouldn't try to "make" it happen, but that we should just keep doing our thing and it will happen when it's right. While I believe this, I can't help but feel like we've already lost almost two years, and maybe we should seek some help. I think the SA will tell us a lot, because my OB said the only other thing to check on me is for a blocked tube. OB kept asking if I was hitting ovulation, but to be honest, we can't possibly be missing it. We have sex all the time from the end of my period, to the beginning of the next. We even tried abstaining for 2-3 days at a time thinking maybe he has a low/slow count and we should let it replenish.
I guess I'm just struggling with how much I should investigate, and what I should do with that information. We've never had a bfp. Every month I have "pregnancy symptoms", but it's just because I am soooo wanting to make a baby. Any advice or light you all can shed on the process of finding out what might be holding us up is greatly appreciated. Starting to feel like it's never going to happen for us, and I can't believe we'll be hitting the two year mark this summer. I know so many people have tried for even longer, and I don't know how you are all so strong. You are an inspiration! At this last Holiday party, a relative asked if he could give one of his grandkids to us because his daughter has too many and we "should have kids".
Thanks for any advice. Baby dust to all of you amazing ladies!!
