    Five Months TTC
    An_250681 posted:
    Hello All,

    I am a 26 y/o woman with a 28 y/o husband and we have been TTC for five months. I just got my period today and am feeling a bit blue about the whole situation. I know that we should keep trying for a full year before seeing a specialist - but have any of you gone to see a specialist before the full year?

    Okay, I am a believer and a Christian and I don't see how this has anything to do with conception. I DO believe God will give you a baby when HE feels it is time and when HE feels you are ready, not whether or not you are saturated in the Lord's love! I don't believe you need to be saturated with HIS love to have a baby! I don't want to start a HOLY WAR here, but just had to give my 2 cents!

    As for An_25 if you want to see a RE than that is your right. I know they say wait to see a specialist after a year, but if you aren't happy with what is going on right now, ask for the referral! Yes, you are young, but the RE will be more aggressive and is willing to do things the OB may not do.
