    It has been almost 4 years

    My boyfriend and I have been having unprotected sex for the past 4 years and still haven't conceived. 5 years ago, I found out that I had a septum on my uterus and a year after, I went to see a fertility doctor and he told me there was nothing to worry about. My GYNO also said the same thing. Well, it has been 4 years and nothing has happened. About a year and a half ago, I started to clot and this went on for about two weeks. I took a pregnancy test and it came up negative, but my doctor said he thinks I may have miscarried. My menstrual cycle is regular, and I feel like I ovulate. I am trying to stay positive, but I'm losing faith. I am begging for some advice and answers. Please help.

    I am not a physician, so please heed my advice as a friend and peer. There is no way to know what might be interfering with your ability to get pregnant without seeking further medical attention. Even if you are ovulating, there can be other factors that may be affecting your fertility as a couple. After 4 years of trying to conceive with no success, you should consider consulting a fertility specialist. Talk with your gynecologist about getting a referral for someone recommended in your area, and call ahead to see whether your insurance will cover an appointment (often, appointments and medical procedures aimed at increasing fertility are not covered by insurance policies). My husband and I are trying to conceive and have had some problems of our own - I am sympathetic to your concerns, and I wish you all the best in your journey to be parents.
