Trying to conceive

I have been trying to conceive for about two years. I have been to the doctors but they are trying to tell me that I am not ferital. I am confused about all of it. I have been pregant before and I lost my son at 4 months. I have not been able to get pregant since. I have had weird period the last few months. I have been having periods every 15 days. I am just wondering if what I am being told is correct?

Yvette Smith, MD, MPH responded:
Officially you carry the diagnosis of infertility because you have been trying for pregnancy for more than one year without success. The real question is why haven't you conceived? Have you been tested? There are basic things that can be checked that sometimes explain why you are not pregnant. Basically we check all of the places things can go wrong (Are you releasing eggs? Can the eggs get to the uterus? Is he making sperm? Are they the right number, moving forward, shaped properly? Are there chemical problems that might be interfering?)

There are a number of people who end up with a diagnosis of unexplained infertility but you want to start by doing the basic tests. Good luck!
