    If you ladies do not have GYN, you should really find one. I have been told by family doctor after family doctor that my irregular period was just because of my eating habits and exercising a lot. My husband and I were pregnant for but maybe a month before I miscarried and when we went to the OBGYN after we decided to try again I was diagnosed with PCOS. It is extremely frustrating, I know but to know what is going on with your body and get recommendations to help you will lower your stress level on the whole situation. Couples trying to conceive have enough to worry about that stress as to why it isn't happening is not needed too. There are many possible causes to why you are having troubles some may not be as severe but you should find out. Family doctors do not know it all as many of us now know.
