    Searching for answers or waiting for a miracle

    Hi, when i was 16 i had my left fallopian and either 1/4 or 3/4 of my ovary removed (on the same side), due to a cyst.

    I am now 25 been a lovely relationship with my partner for almost 3 years now. We have been trying since last june 2010 and nothing. I know every one says you should wait upto 2 years but am i wasting my time is it even possible with what i have left?
    This is such a draining subject for me now it really upsets me.

    I had blood tests done the 1st day of my period and 21st day after for 3 months, which showed i was not ovulating properly.

    About a month ago i started to feel a bit of pain similar to the pain i had with the cysts so my doc has sent me for a scan which is the 13th of Oct, do you think they could tell me more whilst im there maybe they can see something i cant feel.

    I dont know what i am expecting to hear from posting this, maybe a miracle i dont know.

    Welcome, Essa and thanks for posting.

    What I have heard recommended is trying for a year if you're under 35, or six months if you're over 35. I think it's smart that you've gone to your doctor and are getting some testing under way to find out what's going on. The scans should definitely help give your doctor an idea of what's going on inside.

    This article, Should I Have Infertility Testing? may have some useful information, too.

    Keep us updated how your appointment goes next week,
