    basically me and my partner are trying for a baby, last April i found out i was pregnant, i started bleeding quite early on in the pregnancy and had to have a early pregnancy scan, the scan showed my baby had stopped growing and i had to terminate the pregnancy, we started trying again straight away and have not been able to concieve, so my question is this...how long do you have to have been trying before you can go to your doctor for fertility tests etc and also do you think the termination could ave made me infertile....thanks for reading and appreciate your answers

    I'm sorry to hear about your problems. :console:

    I don't think anyone on here could really offer you any useful advice other than speak to you doctor. If you have any concerns as all then you should speak to them and they should be able to offer you support and advice.

    It sometimes can take years for people to conceive without either of them having any problems, but it's always best to get some medical advice.

    I'm sorry for your loss.
    The way I understand it even healthy couples can take 12 months to get pregnant...and it may have taken a few months for your body to get back to normal after the miscarriage/termination.
    I doubt very much that the operation has had any effect on your fertility unless of course you suffered any major infection afterwards, which you obvioulsy would know about.
    I think most doctors would send you for basic testing etc after trying for 12 months with no success, so if I were you I would call your GP and book an appt for a chat about things.
    Best of luck!
