I just got my period after my 5th cycle trying. (I had a miscarriage about a year ago, and we took about 6 months off after that). Before TTC I was an experienced FAM user so I have a very good handle on my cycles (which are quite textbook with clear ovulatory signs), and I am only 30, so I wasn't really expecting TTC to be something we had trouble with. Also when we first started trying I got pregnant right away (and miscarried).
I just called my gyno and I'm getting the cycle day 3 tests (I think FSH and LH?). My husband is getting a semen analysis. SO I'm wondering what to do from here? 1) What do we do with the information garnered by these tests- if hormone levels are abnormal are there easy solutions? 2) Is it too early for me to be worried? At what point should an active FAM user be concerned? I feel like EVERYONE in my life got pregnant immediately.
I guess I'm looking for support, too. I am really frustrated and scared. And I am a busy career woman with a very full social life who loves to travel, so it sucks that I've put my whole life on hold for this baby thing that doesn't even seem to be happening-- so many things I don't feel like I can commit to or plan (like boozy events with friends, or a European vacation). I would be fine not doing those things for the sake of a baby, but there is no baby so it all feels for naught. My husband is really sweet and understanding but obviously this doesn't affect him in the same way.
