Unless you are 40, going to the doctor after 3-4 months of trying is jumping the gun. I know TTC can be an emotional rollercoaster, but you have to take control of your emotions in order to preserve your own sanity. For healthy young couples, TTC for up to 12 months is well within the range of “average” and there’s no reason to seek medical assistance until you’ve exceeded that threshold.

gonatgo:  I’ll be going off of my allergy meds in a month for TTC. My plan is to use accupuncture and a netti pot to manage without my meds. Mr. LK swears by his accupuncturist for allergy management. Just a thought. 🙂

One year is considered very normal for a young, healthy couple. Try to relax and have fun trying. It will happen. Comparing your situation to other does no good. It doesn’t matter how long you have known your partner or how many times other people DTD.  Good luck!

gonatgo:  MOST doctors won’t see you (at your age) until 12+ months of TTC and with no luck. Also… Most healthy couples get pregnant within 1 year of Trying. 3 months is very new to TTC, please take a look at women who are 1, 2, 3 + years of TTC and unsucessful.

Relax and enjoy this time. It’ll happen. Good Luck.

gonatgo:  This is also my third cycle and we also only BD twice during my fertile window.  I was fully expecting it to happen this first try because I am dumb lol.  Three of my best friends are pregnant right now and I would really like to be pregnant with them, have our kids really close in age, etc.  I think I have finally accepted it just might take a while and have calmed my jets.  I say that now at 2 dpo but we’ll see how calm I am at 9 or 10 dpo  haha

Girl, I’m on my 36th month of trying.  Please be patient!  Trust me, if anyone knows how BAD it sucks to have to wait, I do.  I get it.  Stay calm and relaxed, take suppliments, try accupuncture, exercise…It’ll happen 🙂

If you’re charting, know exactly when you are O’ing, & have plenty of BD time during that window, 3 months is plenty long enough to visit a Dr. 6 months MAX. If nothing else, to rule out any issues.

If you are not charting and do not know exactly when you O, then yes, see a dr after a year. I’ve heard the statistic that we only have a 20% chance of getting pregnant during any given month but that number dramatically increases if you are charting & timing intercourse well! (if anyone has numbers on that, Id love to see them!)

Good luck to you!

3 months is super early to start worrying.

You only have a roughly 20% chance of getting pregnant each cycle. It can take perfectly healthy couples up to a year to conceive. Don’t worry too much. There is likely nothing wrong–what’s happening is totally normal.
