    I've been lurking. Ttc for the first time and just turned 37. I did freeze my eggs 2 years ago so I am, however, knowledgeable about fertility drugs and the first half of the IVF process! Hoping I won't need my frozen eggs!

    I was hoping to try last month but I had a weirdly short 23 day cycle. Not sure if that was from going off bc several months prior or just random.

    Oh, thank you, that is very sweet of you! I told myself I'd change it after my one year anniversary at the end of March, but I don't have something I like better so up it stays! Welcome to you!

    You have to click on the "User CP" and it's in the column on the left-hand side.

    New here. Just got some sad news from the lab...4 months late. Could use a point to the right forum, if this is not the best one?

    I'm 35 years old, and TTC #1 for awhile now. Finally got the courage to go to the gyno and ask some questions. We ran some tests and I was told everything looked "perfect". Well I called to follow up and ask what next steps were, because I am still not pregnant - and they called me and told me my AMH was low. Needless to say this is a shock. It feels like the worst news I could possibly get. Somehow I am at just .26 :( I'm scared. I am looking for some stories of success even with such a low number, or support and honesty if this means it is hopeless. I'm so sad.

    I was low as well, acupuncture made my number almost triple. I had my son by IUI first try and after 3 IUIs for my 2nd baby I had success my first time with IVF. I did acupuncture for 3mos before each. Stay the course, it happens all the time...it's quality over quantity. They said I had a 1 in 10 chance to conceive with IUI and it worked 1st attempt...but not so for my 2nd. Good luck.

    Thanks so much for the reply. I love to see that you have had success with IUI and IVF even if it took a few tries. I will look into acupuncture. I have an appointment with a specialist on Monday but it helps to chat with others who have been through this. It's funny. We were just casually trying for...years. Finally it seemed like I should at least look into why it hadn't happened for us yet. I never realized how badly I wanted this until it seemed impossible. Fortunately I am stubborn as hell and don't give up easily - onward we go. Thank you for the encouragement.

    Just curious if any of you have been in my position.

    Cd2 LH was about 27 and fSH was almost 30.

    I want to cry. I don't have PCOS. I'm 38. HSG shows no blockages....
    I still make functional cysts that are about 9mm, we've seen 2 in 9 months but don't know if i'm actually ovulating yet or if those cysts are just trying to fake us out. Cycles are irregular 24-55 days.

    Please tell me your outcomes and process of getting there (whether successful for conceiving or not)

    I need hope.

    Hi, I don't have any outcomes to share with you yet - because I'm brand new to being aware of my fertility challenges, and at this time it appears we have different ones, but I wanted to offer you encouragement. Don't give up, stay the course as others have told me. I wish you happiness and the pregnancy you are after <3 <3

    Dear All

    I am 35+ year old woman. I am trying to conceive for past few months. My doctor calls me for sonography . For past 4-5 months my ovulation used to occur on 15 / 16 of the cycle as confirmed by my doctor ( via sonography)


    Aug -26 days - Ovulation confirmed on 15 day
    Sep - 26 Days - Ovulation confirmed on 15 day
    Oct - 26 Days - Ovulation confirmed on 15 day
    Nov - 30 days - Ovulation confirmed on 16 day

    Now in this cycle between Nov and Dec I am on my 21 day but still doctor has not confirmed the ovulation. Is this a reason to worry. Please advise..
