Our expert says:
The fact that you have only been trying for 6 months does not mean that you have an infertility problem. The definition of infertility is the inability for a couple to conceive after 1 year of trying. So at this one would not be able to say whether you are infertile or not. You also haven’t tried long enough, as a general rule one starts only investigating after a year. However it appears that the fact that you are not able to fall pregnant is causing a major stress in your life. For this reason it may be worth while for you to see your gynaecologist and a few basic tests such as hormonal tests and an HSG can be done to ascertain if you have any obvious problems falling pregnant or not. If your tests come back as normal this will however give you peace of mind and you may be in a better position to try and fall pregnant without all the stresses that are present at the moment.
