Brief Answer:
You must try for further 3months before seeking any evaluation!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your information fully and this is totally normal. There is no reason to get worried about this. You have been trying and you need to have tried for at least 6months without success before you can be evaluated for any issues. There are no reasons for you to get worried.

I recommend frequent unprotected intercourse from 12-16days of your cycle as these are the pick periods. This way, your chances of conceiving are increased. If you fail to conceive after these three months, consult a gynecologist for evaluation and guidance.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
