Infertility, Secondary Support Group

"Secondary infertility" is difficulty conceiving after already having conceived and carried a normal pregnancy. Apart from various medical conditions (e.g. hormonal), this may come as a result of age and stress felt to provide a sibling for their first child.

    Co-Q-10 supplements

    3
    Hello - has anyone tried Co-Q-10 supplements for potentially improving egg quality? Not sure if there is any scientific data backing it up, but I've heard some recommendations. I'd be interested if anyone has heard anything.

    I am new to discussion groups in general. I just need to get this anxiety off my chest. I'm 28 (almost 29) years old. My husband and I accidentally got pregnant 5 years ago and we have a beautiful daughter. I've been off birth control for 2 1/2 years. We weren't actively trying to get pregnant but we weren't preventing it either. I got pregnant again about a year ago and had a miscarriage a week...

    Hello everyone, I am new to this group, but not new to DailyStrength. Lately, I have met a lot of supportive people so I decided to just join this group and share my story. I have had fertility issues for years that stem from fibroids and endometriosis. I had a miscarriage many years ago while I was in college. Years later, I found out that I had massive fibroids and most doctors told me that...

    New Member Permission.....

    Hello to everyone. I have rejoined Daily Strength after having been gone for several years. I think the last time I was with DS, I was in college! I wanted to ask, is it okay for me to join this group??? Unlike most of you, I am not married, so that's why I was asking. I didn't want to impose on anyone if this group is mainly for married people struggling to conceive again. I hope that it will be...

Today nothing really happened, I just need to write out my feelings....

    Losing Hope

    Hello, there.I never thought I'd be sending my struggles and concerns out to total strangers via the internet, but then, I also never thought I'd be in the position in which I now find myself.  And on the off chance that one person reads this and can relate and provide motivation, inspiration or simply peace of mind, then sharing this is worth it.So - now a bit about myself and the reason I'm...

    Hi,I'm new to discussion boards so bare with me. I have a three year old daughter who was conceived very easily and naturally. Now we've been trying for two years to give her a sibling. I'm going to a fertility clinic now after my OB/GYN put me on Clomid for a year! The FS said that was so wrong since it thins the lining of the uterus. Now I'm on Femara with an Ovidrel trigger shot with timed...
