    Trying to decide to wait or be tested...
    scared4both posted:
    My husband (28) and I (26) have been trying to conceive for about a year now without any luck. I know it hasnt been that long but we are worried for two reasons; I was on the depo shot since 2007 and went off it in 2012, I dont know if it could have affected me for being on it that long or not. Also my family has a history of issuses, usually starting in the early thirties, that ultimately end in a hysterctomy.
    The second reason is, two years ago my husband had an ultrsound done on his testicals. They said that he had vericous vains and becuse of that he could have problems conceving.
    Should we still try normally ( I have been using and ovulation calendar) or seek help?
    Hyacinth Nicole Browne, MD responded:
    Dear scared4 both,
    I wouldn't wait any longer to be tested. There could be an underlying ovulation disorder and/or male factor infertility. I would contact a fertility specialist to discuss your next step.
