    HSG test...nightmare!

    5
    My HSG experience was horrible. I could not bare the pain. Maybe because my tubes are both blocked and I had no "spillage" which was a red flag. My heart hurts, I keep saying why is this all happening to me. The pain was tolerable at first then when the dye went in it was like the worst period cramps of your life until they removed everything then I could relax again. I think I tolerate pain...

    Hi...my name is Hilary.  I'm new here and new to message boards in general.  My husband and I met four years ago.  We quickly knew we wanted to spend a lifetime together and also knew we want to start a family.  We talked about it often and even came up with a nickname for our future child.  We started trying three months before we got married.  Next month will be one year.  We're both...

    Obsessed over becoming pregnant

    3
    Since I met my partner, we've had a fast moving relationship. We both had difficult childhoods so grew up quickly. We've now got our own place and engaged. For the last 14 months, we've been trying to get pregnant. Kind of brushed it off when it wasn't happening, but now it feels like a stab in the heart everytime a test comes back negative. It's now been mentioned that I may have pcos, which...

    Out of hope and strength

    2
    My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 3 - 4 years. I had my egg collection on the 9th November but due to overstimulation, was unable to have the implantation and will be having it in the new year. I had a really rough time recovering due to the overstimulation and feel like I've used up all my strength to get over the mental and physical side of the medication and process. I hoped I...

    Over it....

    As it is coming up to new years I need to get out all the negativity that has plagued me this year. I have had a very rough year, this is the 5th year my husband and I have tried, unsuccesfully, to have a child. Throughout the year I have had blood tests, ultra-sounds and surgery and my husband has had numerous blood and semen tests and the doctors still can't find any real reason as to why I...

I had my IUD removed in August & my doctor said it can take a while to get pregnant after getting an IUD out, but my sister & numerous friends of mine were pregnant within 3 months at the most of getting theirs out. Some got pregnant the...

    Anyone else?

    After years of trying to concieve, test after test, I am done "hoping and Praying" Does it make me a horrible person to get so angry when my husband says " It'll happen, leave it in gods hands" All i think about is a baby, a family. I constantly think of what my child would be like, look like, his or her name, how we would break the news, what kind of parents we'd be. I get SO angry and jealous...

    Help - i'm on an emotional rollercoaster and i don't know what to do! I'm all weepy and sad from the letrozol and am supposed to get my period any minute now. I'm trying to be strong for my husband b/c it's not fair to him. He doesn't want a clingy, crying girl eventhough he  tries his best to be supportive. I took a pregancy test and it's negative (gee, no shock there).  I know it will pass,...
