    I am 27 and i have been trying to get pregnate for almost 5yrs and it still hasnt happend and i was wondering if anyone has any advice that they could share with me
    BethAnn88 responded:
    Are you seeing an RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist) or a regular GYN? If you're not seeing an RE, I would suggest getting a referral for one. They specialize in infertility and know what kinds of testing or possible treatments would be best for your situation better than a regular dr. would. Good luck!
    Me(29) DH(31) TTC since Jan 2009. M/C May 2009 @ 10wks. Started seeing RE Dec 2010 and dx'd w/ mild endo. 1st IUI Apr 2011

    No advice really, but I tried on my own for over 5 years. I just thought I couldn't handle the pressure of taking the next step...I went the obgyn last fall for pregnant right away but had a miscarriage...made me take another step back, but I am moving forward steps for me though, but I am glad I asked for help, I thought it would be more pressure but really its helped... Good luck!!!!

    thanks i have started taking prenatal vitamins to see if that helps... i have had a few friends that have had babies and they have told me different things to try

    Go to a Reproductive Endocrinologist. Without the proper tests, you may have conditions that are preventing pregnancy and not even know it. I had a very thick uterine lining and 4 polyps (noncancerous) and it took several involved tests to find this out. I had to have surgery and now 3 months later, we're about to schedule an IUI. My gyno said that he preferred sending women to a RE sooner rather than later because he didn't want to waste time (I'm over 30) with just trial and error.
