    Hi all, I've been TTC for a while and wanted your thoughts.

    I ovulate. Tubes are open. His sperm count is fine. No luteal phase issues. What other factors should I consider? Anyone in this same boat? I'm also on clomid.

    Things I learn from IUI and IVF forums:

    FSH level?
    egg quality?
    uterine lining is thick enough for implantation?

    I know a B&B member who ovulated regularly, perfect 28 days cycle, but she couldn't get pregnant after at least 1.5 yrs of trying. She was in mid 30s.
    She said it's because her FSH level was too high, so she didn't product good egg.
    Taking clomid, and going through IUI, she got pregnant after 2nd attempt of IUI

    I have 2 friends and both them/partners passed all the tests and have been trying ~1.5 years. Neither is on clomid or anything yet, both their doctors thought stress may be playing a factor in their ability to conceive and advised to keep trying naturally for a few months before going on to the next step.

    A girl I work with passed all fertility testing (as did her husband) but still couldn't conceive, so they decided to do IVF. They got twins the first time, and just gave birth to a boy last month.

    Don't worry, there are others in the same boat as you. Hopefully it'll happen for you soon!!

    I'm in the same boat and understand the frustration. I am hoping to do things naturally for a while until we decide to get some help. Don't lose hope...I say, if others who have crazy issues are getting pregnant, why can't we? My thoughts are to visit a fertility clinic and get some test levels done if nothing seems to happen soon. GL to you!

    How's your BD timing? Do you ovulate without Clomid? If so why does your doctor have you on Clomid? While Clomid can help with ovulation it can also decrease fertile cervical mucus which you also need. You can have a post-coital test done with a fertility specialist to make sure that his sperm and your mucus are compatible - apparently some women kill off their partners sperm.

    I am in the same boat, although we go on and off trying and not trying not preventing, I always know when I ovulate, so I guess that's a little cheating on the NTNP front, but I know how you feel.

    After a possible "chemical" in February we have been super laid back about it, and I am just going with the flow. I am trying to be positive about everything, and not think too much. Sometimes easier said than done.

    There could be other medical factors but maybe not, maybe it's just not time yet. Try to relax :hug:

    I think it's easy to feel frustrated and feel like our bodies are failing us because there are so many stories about women getting pregnant so easily. We can't help but wonder what the heck is wrong with us when they're getting pregnant on the first try, or all of these 16 year olds are running around with un-planned pregnancies. I think it's important to remind ourselves that it can take a healthy couple up to a year to conceive naturally. I stress out about this too... my husband and I have been ttc for 8 months now, but I just try to remember that at the end of the day, it's all out of my hands :)
