I'm 38 and have never been pregnant. I have uterine embolization 11 months ago and have been trying to get pregnant for 7 months without success. My Obgyn said to make an appointment after 6 mos. What are my options? Do I need to have infertility tests

The first thing you need to

The first thing you need to do is find a new OB/GYN. Actually, you need to see a fertility specialist. Waiting six months when you're 28 is one thing - 38 is another. It absolutely is possible to get pregnant at 38, but the older you are, the greater the risks for problems.
You need to have a hormone panel done and your partner needs to have a semen analysis done. While you're waiting for an appointment and test results, track your ovulation, take folic acid and both of you need to be as healthy as you can. Good luck!
