Thyroid function.: Although 6 mo may seem like a lot, usually we like to wait 12 mo with regular "trying" before working things up; however, during this time it would be a good idea to do basic labwork, specifically thyroid function. You should go see your PCP and/or your regular ObGyn to establish care and state your concerns in order to start the proper workup early.

Anything possible: Short answer is yes, long answer is if you have family history of IBD (Irritable Bowel Diseases) like UC (ulcerative colitis) or Crohn's, you should definitely see a gastroenterologist as you may need screening studies. Symptoms are usually more evident when the inflammation is bad enough (blood in stool /per rectum + abd pain/discomfort).

Time for GI consult: Seems you had quite the ER workup after 20 visits. Any specific symptoms with the pain? diarrhea? constipation? nausea? vomiting? blood in stool? Left lower abdominal pain, as a complaint by itself, is tough to work up unless you have some other revealing symptoms to go along with it. Did you change your diet recently? Do yo have gynecologic problems such as endometriosis?
