Too early to try: Infertility is defined as inability to conceive after one year of trying. If your gf's cycles are regular, she has no history of stds or pelvic surgery keep trying. If she has a history of any of the above she should see her gyn.

Yes: It can certainly help. It has more benefit in a woman with irregular periods. So an evaluation is usually beneficial before taking it.

HSG: Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) . It is a radiologic test . Dye is injected thru the vagina & cervix into the uterus . If the tubes are open the dye will spill into the abdominal cavity . If tubes are not open , you will not see due in abdominal cavity . Blocked tubes are one cause of female I fertility .
