I have been in the relationship for almost 2 years, still haven't conceive, yeah 28 days I am pretty sure
Expert:  Dr Ted Manos replied 10 months ago.
I'm back and rested. It sounds like you are not releasing an egg each month considering the lack of a rise in the hormone that stimulates release around day 14 of your cycle. You need to see a Gyn to evaluate your basic profile of your monthly reproductive cycle. From my experience, ovulation problems are the easiest to manage as the medications that are used have been around for decades and quite effective. This should not be expensive and the use of ultrasound imaging of your reproductive organs is fairly routine. You should have conceived by now so don't hesitate to have yourself evaluated. I hope I've been helpful.
