    trying to be happy again

    My husband and I got married at 33 and have been trying to conceive for 3 years.  We have tried so many  doctors I'm so sick of begging poked and prodded.  I am a very private person and have only told one friend about what's going on.. the hardest part is that I work in a school where 9 teachers either just had a baby or  are pregnant.  It's been really hard when the kids ask why I don't...
  • I just turned 39 and have been married for almost 3 years.  I was pregnant last October, but at my 8 week u/s there was no hearbeat and I was devastated.  So, 2 weeks before Christmas, I had my D&C for my mmc because we weren't going to be in the US for Christmas and I couldn't risk a natural miscarriage at a foreign hospital.  We've been trying to get pregnant ever since, but haven't been...

    Starting IUI

    Im going in for my base line ultra sound on Friday, so I can begin the IUI cycle. This will be our 4th try with the IUI, the first one stalled and the other 2 did not work. I have been advised that I should only try this one more time, and if it does not work then to go the IVF route.Im scared to start again, to get my hopes up again, only to fear that it wont work, again.

    New to the group

    Hello I am 30 years old and have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility. I am new to any support group and finally feel ready to share my story and hopefully receive some other support. It is extremely difficult to talk to any of my friends and family who have not been through it. I am sure many of you feel the same. At my age most of my friends are getting married and starting their...

    First appointment

    Hi everyone, my husband and I have our first meeting with the fertility specialist next week. My tubes are blocked (he's fine) and it was recommended we go the IVF route. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to prepare for this appointment? Or suggested questions to ask? Trying super hard to be positive right now. Thanks all.

    Venting-Making Excuses?

    I don't know if anyone else feels the same way, but I am tired of having to make an excuse as to why I'm not pregnant yet. At first I always told people we were waiting because we were newly married, then we moved and I was finishing school. Now when people ask me what I'm waiting for, or to not wait to long because I will run out of time, I want to cry and walk away. I don't even know what to...

    Alternative treatments?

    Has anyone tried acupuncture and homeopathic meds?  I've been through the fertility clinics,  weve had reason given to us for not conceiving, we've been trying for 8 years now and I'm 41 ugh. I found a book on line called - pregnancy miracle - wondering if anyone has tried this program?

    Wished $$ grew on trees

    First support group. First post, so bear with me. Married 6 years, trying for 5+ years. Husband was tested and is normal, so the problem lies with me. On metformin&letrozol for 3+ years with nothing, no maybes so ifs nothing. I had a laparoscopy and very minor stage 1-2 endometriosis was found. And no other avenues were given as an option to us. Our Dr was heavily pushing IVF as he diagnosed me...

    Facing my emotions

    I never took myself as someone who struggled with controlling my emotions, but the past couple of years have been a rollercoaster. I'm 27 years old, and have been struggling with infertility for the past year and a half. My husband and I chose to see a specialist after one year of trying, and because of my age, because I'm still considered 'young', I've been made to feel as if I shouldn't worry....
