    Hi!
    welcome!!
    I'm 36 and ttc for 8 mths, had all the tests with ex hubby 4 yrs ago...mine all fine, his very poor. New bloke now and were going for all new tests in case anything has changed with me in the last 4 yrs. Its good to get checked out cos leaving it longerand longer only stresses you out and it could be a very simple thing to fix.

    I'm 8dpo today and really really hoping for a BFP so i dont need a HSG next month!!! but even if i do feck it at least its getting the process moving...the waiting is killing!!:grr:

    I certainly understand your concerns... it may just be that all is fine and it's just taking a bit longer. This does happen. But being that your about 35, most docs would advise to have additional tests done after 6 mos TTC. Ah, the joys!!! lol.

    I would for sure ask (if you haven't already), about CD3 blood work (to check your FSH, LH, Estrodial and thyroid), you can also have CD21 blood work done to check your progesterone (I believe)- then they can perform a dye test (HSG test) to make sure there are no blockages in your uterus or tubes. As well your OH can have a seman analysis to make sure all OK there.

    It can all be a bit overwhelming, but it may be what you need to ease your mind. At the very least, you'll know if you are up against anything. There is SO much that can be done these days ;)

    Best of luck to you hun!!!

    hya all, hope all is good,went doctors this morning there going to do all test again got to go and have blood test 21 days from my period. hope everything turns out ok as the doctor says when u get to 35 everything slows down, i have 3 months left till 35 so im just keeping my fingers crossed, it would be a miracle if i conceived all ready then i wouldnt have to go threw this.The last time i had the test i was 30 4 years ago and everything in working order just hope it still the same.Longing to have a baby i get really jelouse when i see women pregnant or ttc and get caught strait away .. please god give me a chance.

    Hi mazak i hope you get a BFP soon...

    I had a wee girl 10 years ago at 25 and she took me nearly a year. Althou my current pregnancy ended at 19 weeks i got pregnant first month of trying. Just done it every few days around ov time, which having a longer cycle i normally ovulated after day 18 so i guess thats where i went wrong last time around, had my hubby around the bend with DTD every day from day 11 15 lol

    I only have a few months left of being 34 so i want to try soon also, even harder when ive had a Mc emotionally , but physically my body longs for a child :(

    I will also be 35 in May. My hubby just turned 47. Despite our age, we have been TTC for about 3 months now. I am about 10 dpo and PRAYING for a BFP! I had all the symptoms (hunger, swollen sore boobs, constant peeing, extreme fatigue) for 2 weeks. A couple days ago they went away. =(

    Like you, I do not want to go years TTC. Let's encourage each other!! Wishing you all the best!

    don't worry pet there's loads they can do!!
    I'm going for a HSG in the next cycle, i'm dpo12 now and bfn so just waiting for period and then booking appt, you should be cd8 for a hsg. I had it done with a laproscope about 4 yrs ago and everything was ok then but i am worried that now i may have some blockage/scaring. apparently even the test getting the tubes flushed with the dye can clear some blockages of mucus etc. then if the tubes are worse they can put in a stent or drill to widen the path for an egg. All else fails theres always ivf.

    Men rarely realise the panic we have about all this!! when a woman finally decides she is ready...she's ready like NOW!! not this endless wishing and wanting and wasting of precious time tick tock and all that. My fella is a sweetie, he's going for his SA on tuesday and is very supportive in a lad's way... ie 'don't worry love its gonna happen'! But i'm stressed out of my banana...everyday!!

    So ... to put your mind at ease head to a sympathetic doctor, get all the tests and then at least you know where you stand.... worrying is heartwenching and pointless!! put you mind on getting stuff done and fixed if needed!!
    good luck pet!

    Mazak,

    As hard as it is (and I know it's easy for me to say) you have to stay positive and ignore your age. I was 34 when I started TTC and I'm 35 now. It can take time to get pregnant no matter what age you are. 7 months is not very long.

    If you aren't already I recommend the following:

    1) temping to confirm ovulation-use fertility friend
    2) Use a clearblue fertility monitor (which will tell you best days to have sex- so takes the stress out of guessing when fertile)
    3) exercise-I was very fit when I was ttc
    4) ignore all those awful articles in the press telling you've that you've left it too late. The most fertile women I know are the older ones. Those having trouble are in their 20s!

    Good luck!

    Cxxx

    Hi. I will be 35 next month and we have also been referred to the hosp. Hope your appt comes through soon- it's been 3 weeks since we saw doctor and we are still waiting. Stupidly I didn't ask how long it would take! I'm trying not to worry too much and just making OH take loads of supplements in the meantime. Well, if I have to, so can he. Lol.

    Good luck!

    Hi Mazak - sorry you're having a hard time with all the hosp appointments and tests. I can't really give any advice on what they're planning for you sorry but I also had a high Prolactin result when the Dr checked my 21 day bloods (evidentally the hormone prolactin may inhibit ovulation). She told me it could either mean PCOS (Polycycstic Ovary Syndrome) but fortunately for me I had no other symptoms OR that I was nervous of having a blood test - which was true for me, I HATE needles with a passion!! So I gave myself a good talking too, calmed down had another blood test and all was okay. Could this be the same for you? Or are you okay with blood tests?? It's just at thought......

    How about ringing the clinic and seeing if they have a fertility nurse or someone who can explain what is going on for you?

    Big hugs hun :hugs:
