Hello, I am new here and have never done anything like this before. My husband and I have been trying to conceive our first child since February 2011, with no luck. I am 25 and he is 33. We don't have any children and as far as I know I have never been pregnant before. I started using the NuvaRing in 2008 and stopped October 2010. That December I tested positive for HPV. Even though it wasn't bad I still felt like it was the end of the world. That following February in 2011 we started TTC. My last pap came back normal (big relief) and so was my ultra sound. My Gyno said everything is perfectly fine with me, and my husband's test have come out clean too. My period is pretty irregular. I do get it every month, however my cycle varies, I've tried using apps to try and figure out when I'm ovulating but that doesn't seem to be working. A few months ago I missed a period and my husband and I got exciting thinking our prayers had been answered. I got my blood work done only to get a BFN. I had never missed a period before and could not understand how that could have happened, turned out I didn't ovulate that month. I was devastated. Everyone keeps telling me to not think about it and to just let it happen, but it's so hard not to when you get that reminder every month that you are not pregnant. My husband and I are perfectly healthy, we don't drink, don't do drugs or smoke. It's really frustrating and I really don't know what else to do or where to even start. Please help! Any suggestions or advice are greatly appreciated. I am trying to stay positive and keep myself busy as to not think about it but that doesn't always work. I don't know anyone that has experienced this so I really have no one to talk to that understands what we're going through.
Ignore those people that say not to think about, or 'just relax'! They are being insensitive and hurtful even if they mean well. Feel free to tell them it's not helpful, and is pretty hurtful.
My only advice, is after two years, it's probly about time to get checked out with a fertility doctor. Don't wait, you have waited long enough!!
Hi Salgar I am new here as well, I just joined today.
Your story sounds just like mine! My husband and I have been ttc #1 on and off for the last 2 1/2 years. About 4 years ago I tested positive for HPV and had some sort of laser surgery. I found a new dr for a second opinion and ended up having a LEEP done. Both dr told me I shouldn't have a problem ttc but so far nothing has happened. Last month I had TONS of symptoms, I was at least 10 days late.(I think, my cycles range from 29-32 days) I started spotting at work one day and that night I woke up in the middle of the night with the worst cramps I have ever felt. They brought tears to my eyes. It was a horrible experience. I'm not sure if I was having an early miscarriage or what. I called my dr, but he was on vacation for the next 3 WEEKS!!! My appt is Tue so I guess I see what he says this week.
I came here for support as well, hopefully this helps us on our journey
I have done a ton of research in the last few months as far as vitamin, supplements, charting, checking cervix position, and cm. I am trying to make this happen naturally with out any drugs.
I'm here to talk anytime. Good luck to you
Your story is very similar to mine. I'm 26, husband is 32. I have HPV and PCOS. We've been TTC for 15 months now. I just started working with my dr to find out why we're not pregnant yet. Have you had bloodwork and HSG tests? I would suggest talking to your gyno about fertility counseling. Are you ovulating? I was just put on Clomid, which makes your body ovulate. People will tell you, "you're young, it will happen," but you need to be proactive. Make your doctor work for you! Sending thoughts and prayers your way! Hope you get your BFP soon.
Hi just wanted to say welcome! I too have hpv and have opted put of leep since were ttc. We have been ttc for well over a year but funny thing is we have a surprise 6 yr old in the house. I have a luteal phase issue and have to use progesterone suppositories and am now seeing an endo to figure out if my hormones are an issue. It sounds like you have irregular cycles meaning inconsistent ovulation times and that can easily be corrected if that's your only issue but hpv does not hinder conception and I'd say 70percent of my friends have it. If your girlfriends are honest you'll probably find the same.start temping and using opks to figure out ur cycle. Pm me if u have questions. Hope your stay is short qnd sweet!!

I am new too! We are so ready to be parents! Anyways we are on Cycle 2 of using our clearblue easy fertility monitor. I'm gonna be looking for a specialist after 6 months of using that and am just going to have to face my anxiety with it too. Just praying for that sticky bean! Good luck!
