Do you have regular period usually?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
very regular

How many days your period lasts usually?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Not very long, 2/3 days but these last 2 months roughly 1/2 days

Any painful heavy bleeding?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
No pain at all, yes heavy enough when I had it last week but it stopped on second day

Have you been pregnant before?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
No pregnancies before
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I have no cramps or nothing on my period literally no symptoms

Thanks again for clarification.

Although you have not conceived yet, it is medically normal to try upto 12 months continuously before considering any expensive work up.

Hormone disorder, and uterus or fallopian tube problem can cause problem with pregnancy.

But they are only considered if you fail for 12 continuous months.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I don’t need to worry yet about fertility? If nothing happens up to 12 months get checked then

That is correct.

You can start a prenatal vitamin with iron daily to help.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I will give it a try, thank you for your help

Best wishes
