WHEN TO SEE A FERTILITY EXPERT?

If any couple try to conceiving for last  6 months with right fertility windows then they need to consult a fertility expert. 

you might find these situations quite familiar:

You have discontinued birth control and engage in unprotected intercourse regularly, carefully timing it with your most fertile days. After taking a home pregnancy test, you receive negative results repeatedly.

Alternatively, you notice a faint line on your home pregnancy test, which fills you with excitement. In search of answers, you turn to the internet and come across an online forum where others have posed similar questions. Encouraging posts repeatedly state, “A line is a line is a line,” giving you a sense of hope.

However, the next day, that “line” on your pregnancy test has become slightly less pronounced, though it is still visible. You maintain optimism until the moment you realize that you have started menstruating.
