krystalite:  That’s the million dollar question. I guess we won’t know until we try for number 2. I’m currently only 9 weeks pregnant with #1. We kind of jumped into IVF before trying IUI or simply giving it more time because we had enough and insurance covered it.

Darling Husband and I tried for 7 months with our first before getting pregnant. My Gyn said that they would not consider any kind of testing until after 1 year of active trying. That meant self monitoring with over the counter ovulation tests and charting.

The 2nd was much easier – he is our “poster child” for only taking one time. lol.

krystalite:  I got pregnant but had very early miscarriages / chemical pregnancies in months 5 and 12, then saw a fertility specialist after that.  Got pregnant on our 3rd IUI cycle (cycle 18).  I had basic hormone bloodwork at the 6 month mark (after the CP).  Then had more extensive testing, HSG, semen analysis, etc after the 1 year / cycle 12 mark when we were referred to an reproductive endocrinologist (RE).  

All of our testing was normal, so we were ‘unexplained’.  But my doctor thinks nothing was wrong, just bad luck with the miscarriages and we needed some extra time and help.

ETA: I’m 32 and husband is 38 so we were very anxious to get started on TTC!
