    he may check you to see if youre actually ovulating or not. If youre not, they can give you a course of tablets to try and stimulate it. They may also want to check your partners sperm count

    As SCC has said, one of the first test they will do is to check if you are ovulating. They do this with blood tests or ultrasounds both done on specific days in your cycle. If you are they will do more tests, usually blood tests and ultrasounds, the tests are pretty non-invasive but its annoying that you have to wait to start your next cycle to do a lot of the tests.

    Good luck and feel free to PM me if you need a chat

    you changed doctor?

    I would definately say change doctors if you haven't already. Usually if you have been trying for two years it is about now that they would begin to do a bit of investigation.

    Good luck.
