Dh and I have been talking about whether or not we want to see a doctor about TTC, we have been TTC since May of this year so its been right at 6 months now. We decided to wait until January and if I am not pregnant by then we will call my OB/GYN and make an appointment. Not exactly sure what to expect. Years ago when I was still married with my ex we TTC for about 2 years and the OB I had did the dye test on my reproductive organs because he was afraid I had scar tissue from my c-section and when that came back fine he decided to test my ex's sperm and we found out he was sterile and the only way we could have a baby was through donated sperm and IVF, which we decided not to do.(He is not the father of my DS) And when my DH was married to his ex still he was tested and his doctor said, and I qoute, "you have super sperm" lol I am not sure what to expect if my OB/GYN tests us and we both come back fine. Will he put me on meds or send us to a fertility specialist? What are my options besides IVF? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! Baby dust to all!
