Oh no! I honestly can't imagine what it's like not having healthcare as standard, here in the UK we pay into the national insurance all our working lives and we get everything free as a result (well, not prescriptions or eyecare or dental care but that's a small price to pay for free hospital care and doctors). Without the NHS we'd have been set back years on our TTC journey. Instead we're trying to beat the clock from the other side - they stop free funding at 35, before then you get three free cycles of IVF round here and obviously everything leading up to that. They've given me clomid right now to see if that helps kickstart my ovulating.

I hope your insurance comes in and you can get some answers soon enough. Tell you what though - sometimes it does take a while with no need for intervention, so fingers crossed that's the case for you. In fact, my aunt tried for about 20 years and finally got her boy - naturally - when she hit her mid forties. He's 18 now and such a lovely lad - well worth all the waiting for him. So it really can happen any time!

Frustrations


Hi everyone!
Its been a few years since I last visited this thread but remembered it recently.
My hubs and I have been together for 14 years this year and married for 6. I came fully off birth control in 2012 after getting married. I had been on some sort of birth control since 2006, mainly to deal with PCOS and endometriosis. In May or June of 2013 I got pregnant but lost that pregnancy. Then over 5 years only became pregnant in Oct last year. My husband has had kidney failure for longer than I have known him and had his second transplant in March of last year. After all that stress we were looking into options to help get pregnant, but I ruptured two discs in my back in October of last year. I was only about 3 weeks pregnant when this happened and this pregnancy was lost too. I am currently waiting on surgery so of course I cannot look into medical help to get pregnant while Im waiting I was just wondering what advice people may have on putting a plan in to place for when I am able to ask the drs for help. Although I am not old(35 this year) I do feel like I need help to crack on as only falling pregnant twice in 6 years and loosing both makes me think my body can't fall pregnant easily or indeed keep the pregnancy...thank you all in advance

Hi


Hi everyone this is my first time posting here
I have been trying for the past 6 months but nothing happens and I have tried to see my Gp who sort of blamed me for waiting this long to start trying which upset me. I have been checking my fertility and temperature and using ovulation sticks
I was wondering any other things I should be trying?
Thanks

TTC


Hi ladies, been ttc for a year and half, had all kinds of tests, checked my ovulation and even had HSG to check ovaries but nothing the gynecologist told me to start taking folic acid and it helps when trying to conceive, any one heard this?

Thanks

Hi Janemarie
I haven't heard of Folic Acid helping in conception, however I am not a doctor. From what I understand you should be taking Folic Acid as soon as you want to start trying because you can build up a reserve in your body and you want your reserve high if you do get pregnant since it's crucial for the spinal development of the baby.

Since you have been trying for over a year, i would recommend seeing an RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist) to start some fertility methods. Have you tried Clomid or Femera? I am currently using Femera and I got my 5 pills from Walgreens for about $2 - depending on your insurance. But most RE's say you need to try for a year and then you can start fertility methods. Just a thought since you're over your year mark.

Hope


After two years of marriage my dear husband was finally ready to agree to start trying for a baby. The process of trying to conceive started off with a bubbly ďI canít wait to be pregnantĒ feeling in Nov 2016.
However, Itís July 2018 and my excitement has slowly turned into a tiresome despair. It feels like itís been an excruciatingly long journey. I really want this area of my life to be filled with enjoyment and blessing. At the moment my hope feels robbed and Iím battling to stay encouraged.
Every potential pregnancy sign would get me so excited and Iíve spent so much money on pregnancy tests and ovulation sticks. Weíve been through the semen tests, which seemed to show low semen mobility. My HSG test shows a partially blocked fallopian tube and Iím on my first round of clomid.
It seems like everyone around me is falling pregnant at the drop of a hat and I feel left behind. I feel guilty for wanting to fall pregnant, rather than just happy for those around me. I feel weak for not being able to trust God 100% and that itís effecting me so much.

My best friend is pregnant with her second baby...she didnt have to try hard at all. I even get irritated with her because she complains about difficulties and how her son is terrible...I'm jealous...that's all that's to it. I lie all the time about wanting children...i always bring it up to my mom but the honest truth is im afraid to mention i just dont think i can have children. I feel like im not allowed to even want children...I feel cursed. I dont feel like a woman most of the time. I feel ugly. I just feel like i deserve to be by myself with a bunch of cats. I never express how I feel to my husband because i dont think he takes me serious enough...i feel like i just dont have anyone who understands me truly...I guess its good to write to women possibly like me? I got emotional writing this lol but please...anyone can respond wether it be tough love or plain and simple support i want some feed back. Thanks
It's so sad when one is battling with something like infertility that this lie comes into our thoughts that we're cursed or that we don't deserve being pregnant. Glad you vented but maybe surround yourself with people that speak hope and encouragement over you- even when you no longer feel those things. Sometimes a true friend is your strength when you battle to hold onto hope and remain strong. sending hugs

Just chiming in with my vent here...reading often but never really felt the need to post.
DH Ana I have to ttc for almost a year now. Yesterday, for the first time everything was saying yes, yes, yes, go, go, go.

Had an ultrasound the day before which showed my dominant follicle at 2cm. Yesterday I decided to go in for my pap smear and the doctor said I had abundant EWCM.
Took my OPKs in the morning and everything was at peak.

DH couldn't perform. Shattered. Every other time, every other cycle it's been fine, but this time...nothing. And we haven't BD for 3+ days before that. Looks like I'm out this month before even having the tww. Apparently telling him I am ovulating and then leaving him at home for a couple of hours for him too nervous. So upset.

I actually hate this process of TTC already. And Iím only at the start of the journey and only 3 months in, with no success as yet. I feel selfish saying that as I know it can take everyone different time frames; some months, some years and years.
All my friends have either just had their newborns or are pregnant and itís happened for them extremely quickly. Theyíre constantly asking me when Iím going to have a baby and I canít even bring myself to tell them that Im TTC cos every month AF shows and Iím disappointed. Whilst Iím happy for them Iím also jealous. I feel so selfish!

I was convinced I maybe was this month...sore boobs, cramping, fatigue, I was needing to pee during the night which I never do...creamy CM. Then tonight I got light pink CM. AF due to arrive on Monday. I did an OPK last night as Iíve never used them before but just wanted a practice before I go all in this month. It looked positive which was weird. Also did a HPT which was BFN 3 days ago.
Iím out this month and feeling meh!

Rant over

Here I am back in the venting thread...*Sigh* Been trying for about a year now. To no avail. Recent development; my af was like clockwork up until last time I saw OH (April) then I had 3-4 days of super light pink spotting on paper and nothing else for May, June, or July. Hospital urine test came up negative. So I am frustrated and at a loss. I am going into a walk in clinic tomorrow to see if I can get help and get some answers. It is extremely frustrating though, because my best friend is due with her first child this month. The 21st to be exact. Which is the day AFTER when my child would have been due if I hadn't miscarried. The sad part is my friend never even wanted children, and up until she was about 6 months into her pregnancy with Adam, and I snapped at her for drinking and smoking and using weed well pregnant she STILL did not want children.

Only since I snapped at her has she really stepped up and prepared to be a mom. It's frustrating that both she and her twin sister, neither wanted children. My friend is pregnant with number one, her sister is pregnant with number 3. Neither of them wanted children but they both get them, and all I want is ONE child and it seems the forces that be are completely against me having one and it is heart wrenching. I'm so tired of people saying "it will happen when the time comes." I'm getting more and more doubtful as time passes.

Not only am I starting to doubt I will ever get to be a mother, I am also starting to doubt I will ever be okay. I worry that if I can't give OH children, he will walk out on me, like my ex husband did after we miscarried. It's just a whirlwind of emotion.

All I want is a little rainbow to hold in my arms, I don't know why that seems to be way to much to ask...

Well here is to hoping the walk-in clinic goes well, and we figure out why AF hasn't shown her ugly face. Maybe I am pregnant and it's just one of those weird situations where I got false negatives, maybe it is PCOS or Endometriosis. We will just have to wait and see. I don't hold my hopes too highly for the chance of being pregnant. But guess I can't rule it out till a doctor tells me via ultrasound that I am not.
