User avatar Hi!

How long have you and your partner been together? How long have you been trying to conceive a pregnancy? Can you provide us with your sexual/ marital/ medical/ menstrual/ surgical histories? Have you ever been pregnant before? Have you ever had a pregnancy loss? Have you consulted your doctor or an infertility specialist regarding your problems?

Answering these questions might help you get started with any action you might need to take.

Since you and your doctor feel that your menstruation is not normal, perhaps we should begin by looking into regulating your menses. Anovulatory cycles (menstruation without ovulation) could be the probable culprit. You will need expert gynecologic management in that case.
