My husband and I are both 32yo and have been attc for 7-8 months. I temp/chart/use opk, and based on these I have confirmation of ovulation. Our BD timing has been good all but 1 or 2 of those months.

 

We have a 2.5 year old with whom we had no trouble conceiving, so this is new territory for us. I still nurse her only a few times per day, mostly at night. I've had regular periods since she was 10 months old.

 

My question is, do you think it's time for me to go in for a basic fertility workup and DS for a sperm analysis? or give it more time? I'm afraid we're losing precious time we won't be able to gain back related to our ages....

 

Thanks everyone!

personally, i would get tested. not because i think there is anything wrong, per se (i would imagine it could take longer conceiving while nursing... and in fact, i think there is a thread on here with women who are ttc while nursing...) but because it will give you peace of mind and help you to determine if you should just relax and keep trying or if you should pursue other interventions. 

 

best of luck to you!
