    It seems odd that a dr would just say that you might be infertile. He should run tests to find out why you are/were late. Do you know that you are ovulating? If you aren't then that could explain why your period (AF) would not show up when you think it should. Have you always been regular in the past? There are hormonal problems that could cause irregularity. I think you should go back or find a new dr who is willing to look into the problem. Good luck!
