    It took us 18 cycles. I had two miscarriages in the meantime (1 at 8 weeks, one very early chemical pregnancy). The only thing I knew was an issue was hypothyroidism but I didn’t even begin treatment for that until after I got my BFP this time. I also found out that I had low progesterone and had to take supplements for the first trimester. I believe this had been an issue for me all along as I had spotting before AF month after month. I actually had the appt scheduled to talk to the doc about what to do next when I got the bfp. Do you temp/chart or anything to track your cycles? I found this very helpful as I was ovulating earlier than I thought when I was just guessing.

    I think most doctors will see you after 12 cycles for women under 35 and 6 cycles for women over. Its worth a phone call just to discuss your options.

    I didn’t vote, because it took us over two years.  About a year and a half in, we went to a fertility specialist.  They did some testing.  The plan was to do further testing and possibly HCG injections, but I decided I wasn’t ready for that step at that point.  We got pregnant a little under a year later.  I had tried a few things like accupuncture and Vitex without success.  

    I think it was the Progessence Plus that finally allowed me to get pregnant.  We had been about to go back to the fertility specialist, but I figured a $40 bottle of PP was a lot cheaper than further testing/treatments at around $1200 per cycle, and if it didn’t work, I wasn’t out much.

    Miss Apricot:  I think low progesterone is a very common issue, definitely something worth looking into OP. But many over the counter versions don’t actually give you enough of what you need. I think it’s smart to consult a doctor before trying progesterone on your own.

    jny1179:  This is true.  I was taking it in effort to lengthen my luteal phase, which was on the short side but not overly short.  PP has a relatively small amount of progesterone, so wouldn’t be a high enough dose for someone with a more severe deficiency.

    I would see a specialist (and I did after 12 months). If there is some reason you aren’t getting pregnant, don’t you want to know what it is?

    My hubby and I have been together  since 2006 and I haven’t been on birth control since 2006. We started trying, seriously, in February 2014 and it took 7 cycles to get a BFP. It took us sometime and we were skeptical and wondered if we would need medical help but then in Nov. We finally got our natural + result. We are super excited that we worked finally. It all depends on how you feel. My hubby and I had decided if we weren’t pregnant by 15 cycles we would go in, so feeling lucky.

    KBelle12:  DH and I have been married since March 2013 but we’ve been together since 2010. We stopped preventing pregnancy in 2011, no pregnancies came of it. DH deployed in early 2012 and came home in late 2012. We tried from that point on and conceived naturally sometime in late August 2014 or early September 2014. So it took us almost two years to conceive naturally. We never had any plans of using any unnatural means of intervention to conceive. We would have been happy either way. So this was a nice surprise.

    KBelle12:  my good friend’s parents tried naturally for 11 years before he was born. I hope you get it naturally and a lot quicker!

    i got my BFP after about 16 cycles of naturally trying. After 12 cycles, we did all of the fertility testing that was offered and they couldn’t find a reason why we weren’t conceiving. We decided on a game plan (adoption applications, date for first round of AI) then all of a sudden we were blessed with a little miracle!  I’m almost 18 weeks now – dont give up hope!!!
