Infertility/Fertility/I can't fall pregnant


Hi I am a 24 year old lady and have been with my partner for nearly two years now we have been trying to have children together but have had no success I have 2 children already, I have spoken to my gp he has reffered me for many tests and every thing seems normal apart from scarring on my ovaries which they sonographer said was normal I have tried many home remedies and still I can not fall pregnant please help I'm starting to give up hope :(

Hello Sally from the U.K,

You need to go see an infertility specialist!  You GP is not an expert in this field and is wasting your time.  Once you see the proper specialist, you will undergo a complete infertility evaluation which hopefully will determine why you are having difficulty getting pregnant.  Once this is found, a proper treatment can be recommended and applied so that you can achieve pregnancy.  Don't give up hope until you at least see the proper specialist.  

By the way, there is not such thing as "normal scarring around the ovaries."

Good Luck,
