Long term TTC success stories wanted!
Just wondering if anyone could kindly share their BFP success stories? Would love to hear some positive, reassuring stories, particularly those who were previously long term trying to concieve!

Ive not used contraception for 8 years and am now actively TTC so would really appreciate any people who were in similar situations that eventually resulted in a BFP! Id love to hear from you all, thank you!!!

I have PCOS, so I lost weight and started exerciing and my husband has got problems too and was told we had a very slim chance I was trying a lot for 3 years with charts, ovulation tests, I eventually gave up and just told myself it was never going to happen I have got 2 beautiful children and 2 step children . On Thursday I got a big shock and found out I am expecting again. Don't ever give up hun, it can happen

Hi hun. I didn't try for that long (8 months) but I was told that I had PCOS and fertility issues due to the chemotherapy treatment that I had.

I tried everything in the book every single month, with no BFP. Then on my 8th month of being cancer free, I went for my regular cancer check up and was then told that they found abnormalities that will affect fertility. I was also diagnosed with PCOS and the doctor said I didn't ovulate and my uterus lining is too thin (I was 6dpo then). I was going to start Femara as soon as AF started.

That month we missed our timing totally. I did acupuncture for the first time and ovulated two days earlier than usual (i was adamant with the doctor that I did ovulate that month but she said it wasn't a good ovulation then). Anyways, AF never showed up. We got our BFP.

Hi, I was ttc for two years and decided it was time to go to the doctors in October last year to be told I would have a 6 month wait to see a specialist after my blood test came back normal. We tried using fertility monitors and taking my temperature but it just was not happening.

I was fed up and really down so we decided to take a break untill we had the specialist appointment and just enjoy christmas. Then last week I did a test and it came as a huge shock to get a bfp! As I had stopped tracking and thinking about my cycles I had no idea how far along I may be so I went for a scan yesterday I was 5 weeks 3 days and saw a heartbeat it was amazing.

Congratulations! Both really lovely stories... Hope I’m lucky enough to experience a BFP soon!

Thank you! Just do not give up and try to stay positive about it (alot easier said then done) hope you get bfp soon! My sister was trying for 3 years and is now starting IVF this week so I am keeping my fingers crossed for her too!

Don't give up! I had. After 7 nearly 8 years TTC we got a surprise BFP out of no where. Tests showed nothing wrong and I basically just thought it wouldn't happen for us. We went away for our 11 year anniversary and 3 weeks later found out we were pregnant. Completely unexpected wonderful surprise. Only thing I did differently was I lost weight and exercised everyday - I never felt better and full of energy. I might not mean anything but I think it really helped. I still can't believe it - he is 11 weeks old now!! I hope to have another, hopefully won't take as long. Big hugs :hugs:

We were TTC 2 years. Tried Clomid, one private IUI, 2 laparoscopies including Ovarian Drilling. Finally got referred for NHS IUI, followed by IVF. We went for the initial consultation and I was waiting for af to have my control scan and to pick up the injectibles.

Needless to say af didn't arrive! (Although I had quite a bit of implantation spotting). The only thing we did differently was use TONS of Conceive Plus and BD'ed every day rather than every other day (DH has low morphology so recommendation was BD every other day)

After 2 ectopics and being told I had a 0.002% chance of conceiving naturally, I got the BFP for my son just 3 weeks after the second ectopic. I laugh when people say "relax and it will happen" because I have never been LESS relaxed than I was that month.

Now I am trying for #2! Falling pregnant is one of the most impossible and easy things to do at the same time! :flower:
