Ive been married for 4.5 years and been trying to have a baby from day one. I had an HSG test maybe 3 yrs ago and they found one of my tube is blocked. I also don't think I' m ovulating cause my cycle is very short. It comes like on average every 19 days. So it doesn't seem like I have a chance to ovulate.

Haven't taken any drugs to help with conception...but I'm not sure what to do now. It's very frustating of course. Any suggestions?

You really should see a RE. A short cycle doesn't have to mean you are not ovulating. You could have what is called a luteal phase defect. Your progesterone is what "holds" a pregnancy and the uterine lining in place. If you have a progesterone deficiency it can be easily fixed. The should do all the necessary blood work to tell. Good luck!

I'm also on the doctor bandwagon. In addition, have you been charting or taking opk's? These can tell you when and whether you are ovulating.
