User avatar Hello,
I think your doctor's advice to keep trying is the best. At 33 you still have good years left for conception. It is normal for a fertile woman in your age range to take a year to become pregnant. Sometimes knowing about these very early pregnancies (called chemical) just causes stress since you would not have even been aware of the pregnancy in the days before home testing and other sophisticated means for early determination of pregnancy.

Try to relax since stress hormones may also interfere. Many people become pregnant when they aren't trying, probably because they were able to relax and let nature take its course. I don't think you have anything wrong; it's just luck of the draw here. The techniques you are using are the best there is for prediction. I would not rush into any additional intervention at this point.

Good luck.
