@AprilJo2011:  I would check with insurance first.  But don’t feel silly.  If there is a problem, it doesn’t matter how long you have been trying.  The first steps will just be diagnostic, then you can decide whether you are comfortable with starting interventions or want to keep trying naturally for a bit longer.  If and when you decide there’s a problem, you’ll want to see the RE asap.  Then you’ll have to go to primary OB to get a referral, then wait longer for an appointment.  Already being in will be helpful.

Don’t feel silly!  If your current doctor thought it was too soon to refer you, they wouldn’t have.  And, your RE will tell you if they think it’s too early as well.  Sure, there are people who wait longer to go see one.  But, there are others who don’t.  It’s all about your comfort level.  You know your body better than anyone and you have to advocate for it.

I wouldn’t feel silly especially since your doctor sent you. Hopefully the office will really be able to help you get pregnant.

In regards to your insurance question I believe you are the only one who needs a referrald as you will be having the baby and the RE visits will be charged to you under your insurance coverage.

I think that’s how it was for me as well.  I was referred by my GYN and when they did my husband’s semen analysis, they didn’t need a referral for him or anything.

@AprilJo2011:  I can totally relate! I’m 29 and will be trying for 10 months when we meet with the RE. At times I do feel like we’re rushing into things, but for the most part we’re looking forward to getting some answers. 

Good luck!
