1% -3% chance of conceiving after 3 years!! :(


I've just read if you have been trying for more than 3 years ttc then you only have 1-3% chance of concieving well that's just wonderful.. Just gets harder every day!!

Ah! Was just reading on a website something that contridicts that! Thought I'd post the link to give u a little hope: http://www.totalwellnesscentre.ca/unexplained.html

This says if you've been trying under 5 years you have a 30% chance any given year, and 10% after 5 years. That's without any treatments.

Sorry pinkpeony, I disagree.

My RE told me that after just 2 years my chances of success are only 5% (we are unexplained). Apparently the longer you ttc without a bfp, the less likely you are to conceive. She said that the success rates just go down the longer that you ttc. So if it's 5% at 2 years, then 3% at 3 years sounds about right.

We are over the 3 year mark. I find it really depressing. We have thought about IVF a few times and we have actually had appointments but I just don't know how much I have left in me right now.

I was ttc for over 4 years before I got my first/only natural bfp, sadly it ended in miscarriage but I got it. My fs said that your chances does reduce the longer you try slightly but at the 5 year mark of trying they say it is a very high chance that you won't get a natural bfp.
Please don't give up hope x

Wow. What a depressing thread. We've been trying for 2.5 years now, so it's looking unlikely we'll get a natural bfp. Oh well, ivf is on the cards for us anyway, so in the meantime I can hope, but maybe ivf is the only way I'll get a baby (hopefully I'll not be unsuccessful there as well!)

Please don't give up hope. Even if you can't conceive naturally there are lots of options to help you conceive. Even before you have to jump to IVF. There is hope. If you give up the hope then all is lost. I hope you all get you bfp some day.

Everyone is just giving there experiences and what they have been told. But we have to keep hoping and praying and trying any route which we are able to. I know my fs said about the 5 year mark, but then a lot of people will then get there bfp with the help of metformin if they have pcos, clomid or iui, lifestyle changes if it is male factor or naturally, it does happen and has done to many people on here.
Ivf is generally the "last resort" as it is bringing in the big guns as my doctor called it, and they like to try the above first if possible and suitable, but again it has a very good success rate.
We just have to keep going and keep hoping. I have been trying for over 4.5 years now and start ivf next week, there have been so many times I wanted to give up, I still cry whenever I hear of friends getting there bfp quickly (of course I'm pleased for them I just wished I could get mine) and I am very scared that ivf may not work but I will keep going, I have to.

Push for all the tests at the octors so you have a full clear picture and the get referred to a fs, they will try everything they can for you, they are experts. Make sure you and your dh have you both time, date nights etc x
