Patient replied :
This is my second time trying to conceive and I haven't had any ultra sounds done. Please answer my questions from the first e-mail. I explained my situation in it.
Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring.com. I understand your concern.
With regular cycles, the odds are that you are ovulating regularly.
Ovulation predictor kits and the basal body temperature - both are quite unreliable for truly monitoring ovulation.
Generally no investigations are suggested until you have tried unsuccessfully to conceive for a year.
But at 30, you can get more aggressive sooner too.
Yes, you can consult your OB - GYN.
Two basic things should be checked.
One - your husband's semen analysis.
Second, your ovulation.
This is best tracked through follicular monitoring ( FM ).
FM involves serial scanning of the uterus and ovaries throughout your menstrual cycle, to monitor the growth of the egg, and then to see the egg rupture ( ovulation ) directly on the scan.
Please get this done.
I hope you are taking regular folic acid supplements.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
