Just wondering how long until I should seek medical help for fertility issues.. I'm becoming quite frustrated each month with the BFN's...
For me it would be a matter of peace of mind and a sense of control.
I think a sperm count would be a very easy way to start and rule out at least one variable.
As to when? I know "they" say a year, but I think if you have a doctor who is willing to listen to your concerns and have some basic tests ordered then do it now if you think it'll give you some peace of mind. You can rule out that there is anything wrong or if you do find something you can start addressing it and feel like you're still taking charge and moving forward in your TTC journey.
How long have you been trying? Do you have any underlying health issues that might affect fertility?
The standard answer is that you should wait until you've been trying for a year, but if you're over thirty, or charting your cycles, I think six months is more reasonable. And if you have something like endometriosis or PCOS that can make conceiving harder, there's no reason not to bring it up with your doctor the moment you want to try - like hey, we're hoping to get pregnant, we know I have this condition, what can we do to improve our chances?
