We have been trying for a baby for a long time, when should we consult a doctor?

If you don''t get pregnant immediately after you start trying for a baby doesn''t mean that there is a problem with you or your partner. You have a 90% chance of getting pregnant within a year of trying, and 95% within two years. Therefore the right time to seek medical advice is after one year of unsuccessful trying for a pregnancy, unless you or your partner know that you suffer from a condition that is likely to affect your chances of getting pregnant, in which case obviously you may need specialist advice earlier.
How do pregnancy test kits work?

Pregnancy test kits require you to test a sample of your urine. The absorbent wand reacts if a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin), which is produced by the embro, is present in your urine. As a backup, many kits include a second test.

How to use a test kit Not all kits look like the one shown here, but they work in basically the same way. Remove the test wand from the cap or cartridge. Hold the absorbent sampler in your urine stream for a few seconds. Replace the wand into the cartridge. Wait as directed. If you are pregnant, both windows will show a color.
