Hey guys. We got our letter (by email) from  Bosnia and Herzegovina consulate with instructions what to do next. I’ve filled DS-160 form, but now I can’t get my interview date, it says that they don't have any dates for interviews. Should I do medical, or what to do now?

thank youu

The visa expiration is tied to the date of the medical (6 mos.) If your interview is quite a bit in the future you will limit the time available to use the Visa 


YMMV

Wait till you have an interview date and schedule it as well as your medical exam. To give yourself enough time between medical and interview it's suggested you allow 5-10 business days so as not to waste the validity time. Refer to @payxibka explanation.

Recent example.  Medical in December.   Visa issued in May.  The k1 had less than a month of validity on the Visa when issued because of when the medical was done

Hi.   Be patient.  Schedule your medical after you know you have an interview date.  Medical cannot be too old.  Best wishes.

I’ve finished everything. Interview is June 3th. Wish me luck. Thank you all for your replay’s. 

Good luck; seems like scheduling the medical and the appointment worked out well. Sometimes all it takes is to check for new appointment dates a few times per day. It is limited how often you can reload the page; I think like 10 times or so. 
Also, for future post, please try to give your Question a more precise title. It is assumed that almost all of the posts here are questions ;)
