Evaluation: I'm not passing judgement but your age says 17 and you have been trying a year? It sounds like you may have irregular periods. This may be your issue. At one year almost 85% of patients would have been pregnant so it is time to see an Ob/Gyn or Reproductive specialist to see why your not getting pregnant. Testing: Sperm analysis Ovulation testing Tubal tests (Hysterosalpingogram) Hormones
