I don't think you have a problem or any issues. It just sounds like your timing might be off.

I agree with the other ladies...I think your timing is just a bit off! If you can BD more frequently, especially during the potentially fertile days that Katie mentioned, you have a better chance. You don't have to BD ED, you can do EOD so you don't tire yourself out. Keep in mind that having a 28 day cycle doesn't mean you O on CD14.

To answer your original question, most docs won't consider you having a problem ttc until you've been at it for at least a year. For women over 30ish, they generally recommend 6 months of trying before seeing a dr. If you're genuinely concerned and not just anxious/caught up with baby fever (which I know I am!), you can always put in a call to your dr to talk about it.
