Can you tell me when was your last menstrual period?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Missed one before like 7 months ago but came on after a week of being late
how long have you been trying for.?do you have sex in your fertile window?do you ovulate at all?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Been trying about 7 months we track ovulation with ovulation tests have regular sex throughout the month and everyday of the fertile window try to twice a day
Ok.yes in that case you should get an appointment and have testing done.
There are many causes and its important to see if every thing is normal like your hormones, thyroid levels, anatomy etc.Also your husband's semen analysis will be important!
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Yeah am worried because of the first time was pregnant didn’t show up till 14 weeks along the lost it is it possible that my hcg levels just don’t rise quick enough
Hcg levels are important once you get pregnant. But the problem in your case is you are not getting pregnant.So in that case its important to get complete evaluation like.
Ovulation tests
Hormonal tests
Semen analysis
Once you get pregnant, your hcg levels tell if your pregnancy is progressing normally!
you need evaluation!
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
good chance I’m not pregnant just something not right inside atm
because this is enough time for the hcg levels to be picked in urine.Urine tests are accurate at this time.
You can ask for quantitative blood test if you are in can pick even traces of hcg!
I hope it helps!

The pains can be related to your gut.Also possible ovarian cysts as polycystic ovaries can be the reason for difficulty getting pregnant.!
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
They are only on one side
the gut pains like Diverticulitis, or ovarian pains are usually on one side!
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I’ve had a cyst on my ovaries before once would that cause the missing periods to then
it can...that's why I asked you to get an evaluation for possible ovarian cysts!
