I would have thought that any GP who uses that word before tests have been carried out is irresponsible. Hope you have been referred to a specialist.

It took me 2 years to conceive DD. My sister had PCOS which also made it hard for her to conceive but not impossible.
I hope you get referred and get some good news.

.. that makes no sense .. there is no way she can think you may be infertile without tests

it is obvious you have been fertile

what is it about your cycle that made her respond like that

Um, what is this gal talking about? Only trying for 5 months doesn't consitute s/one being infertile. If you are 35+ you can be referred for fertility testing after 6 months of trying to conceive. If you are under this age then it's one year. Since having dd, have you been diagnosed with any other health conditions - diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, PCOS, endometriosis, hypertension, been treated for cervical dysplasia using cone biopsy, etc.?

I agree w/ChicPea - it's irresponsible to even suggest a healthy woman who's only been trying for 5 months in infertile.
