I've been trying for two years and know I have to go to a specialist. I am pretty scared. Can anyone tell me what to expect when I go?

Don't be scared. It is not that awful. The testing and treatments are somewhat uncomfortable, but not really painful. First they will probably start out with a bunch of blood tests, pap smear, and gathering historical data. From there they will determine if further testing is needed. If it is, they will probably do a hysteropingogram (sp?) which is also known as a tubal dye study, internal ultrasounds, and periodic internal exams. These are not fun, but that bad. The hysteropingogram is probably the most painful, they inject a dye through a catheter into your uterus and watch it flow through your fallopian tubes. It was just like menstrual cramps for a couple of minutes, so really not awful. I wish you the best of luck.

this is all true, this is how it starts off, blood tests and testing your blokes sperm are the first steps, you've got nothing to be scared about.

basically the doctor would just run a test to check your fertility levels. that's all it takes so there's nothing to be scared off.
