At your age (early 20's), 9 months TTC (trying to conceive) without success could be considered a possible sterility problem; you should now ask for medical help. First, your partner should check his sperm count via a spermogram. If everything is OK with his sperm (there are enough mobile spermatozoids present in the semen) then it will be your turn to check out your body. There are several medical investigations that are performed for a woman to identify possible causes for infertility. The purpose of the exams are to verify if you are ovulating, or not... and if your genital organs present a healthy, normal anatomy, or not. Basic gynecological examinations like a vaginal examination, Pap-smear, vaginal smear for microbiology, and a vaginal ultrasound should be done first. Then come the hormonal blood analyses (FSH, LH, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, thyroxin, prolactin). The hormonal analyses and an ultrasound will confirm or exclude the presence of ovulation. If the body is ovulating and creating eggs, the gynecologist will next confirm or deny the presence of a normal passage for the spermatozoids and egg-cell to pass through the genital organs. Normal anatomy of the genital organs can be checked using the following diagnostic procedures: an ultrasound, hystero-salpingo-graphy (HSG), hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.
The vaginal discharge you’ve mentioned may be due to a vaginal infection (colpitis). You should also get this checked out by a gynecologist. Some genital infections (gonorrhea, Chlamydia…) can cause sterility. Good luck and please tell us at ehealthforum how things have turned out.
