how to know if you are infertile

I have been trying for 6 years to get pregnant with no luck and was wondering if it could have something to do with past medical problems or the fact that I get my period usually 2 to 4 times a month

Re: how to know if you are infertile

A couple is considered infertile if they have been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for a year or more. Keep in mind though, that infertile doesn't mean you can't have kids, it just means you may need some medical intervention. If you're getting your period so frequently, I'd be willing to bet that is playing some role in your difficulty getting pregnant. I would recommend talking to your OBGYN, or if you can, going straight to an RE. They will be able to run some tests & determine what steps you should take next.

Good luck!

Holly has given you the best advice. I would make an appointment with a RE as soon as you can.

Good luck

Re: how to know if you are infertile

You should tell your PCP or OBGYN about your periods and all your past medical history. we can't help you as we are not doctors, but at least we can advize you to seek medical attention.
