Please read below!: Hello, i would be happy to help you. It is not unusual to try up to a year to get pregnant. Given that you have now reached a year of trying, there might be some reason for concern. I know that this can be frustrating, but taking a reasoned approach is the best way to proceed. Your first priority is to talk with your ob/gyn about tests that can be done to assess whether your tubes are open.

And whether your significant other has viable sperm.

Check your tubes: While a number of problems could be causing your infertility, a history of chlamydia twice makes tubal damage quite likely. I would talk to your gyn or fertility specialist about getting a test called an hsg.
