    First step is usually to see your regular gynocologist and see what he/she says. Then, they will usually refer you to a reproductive endocrinologist (RE), who can do the necesarry tests and procedures.

    My RE did tons of blood tests and an HSG , which checks to see if your fallopian tubes are clear or blocked. He also found out that I have :
    1) borderline insulin
    2) low iron
    3) 4 uterine polyps and a very thick lining
    4) I do not usually ovulate.

    I had to have surgery to remove the polyps and even though they weren't cancerous, he said that over time they might have turned into that.
