Going Crazy...

First post on here so a little nervous... but I feel like im going crazy and nobody understands.

Hubby and I have been TTC for around 2 years (very laid back approach to start). we've had 2 fertility appointments...

Semen Analysis came back fine. had bloods done and waiting on HSG. found out my prolactin is high (but i am ovulating?) so being referred to a endocrinologist... its all so confusing and we're constantly waiting for the next appointment, referall, test....

everybody I talk to has some crappy bit of advice like 'it will happen when its supposed too' 'maybe you're not ready for baby' 'just relax' 'just have sex all of the time' (no... really???? i didnt realise thats how you made a baby...)

Not sure what I'm looking for here, maybe just a rant space, reassurance or success stories...

Hello there, sorry for your stresses!

I've not been through the same myself, but I couldn't just read and not reply.

There is ALWAYS hope, there are so many women on here who have been where you are and have gone on to have healthy pregnancies and babies.

We as women are unlucky because our bodies are so complicated, growing a person is a huge thing! Everyone has something going on during their own stories.

Try focusing on how amazing it will feel when you finally conceive, chart your ovulation and menstruation days, lie on your back with a pillow under your bum for a while after DTD and take folic acid.

There are other things men can do to increase their fertility too, I'm sure you consultants have been through all of this with you but it can't hurt to keep doing them.

Just have faith, and remember how so worth the wait your little one will be.

I know you posted this last month, have you had any news or changes since?
