    Hello Anon_235446 and welcome. I am sorry you've been TTC with no success so far. The fact that you've been trying over a year is usually the point at which people consult with their OB/GYN.

    Now you say you've tried ovulation predictor kits (OPKs), but you don't say if they've indicated you're ovulating or not. If they don't show you're ovulating, that is something that you really need a doctor's help with because all of the charting in the universe won't make you ovulate. This Decision Point, Should I have Fertility Testing? may be helpful.

    Good luck and let us know how you're doing,

    Talk to your OB/GYN about any diagnostic tests they could do. I'm 35 and my OB/GYN referred me to a specialist immediately, but since you've been trying for 12 months, your doctor might want to do some tests just to rule things out.
