Hello there.....new here, but very hopeful.
In one week is my 2 year wedding anniversary which also marks 2 years TTC.
With doctor and people recommendations, the first year ttc was done the he regular way, with negative results monthly .
Did get my thyroid tested which was higher then recommended with TSH being at 4.56. What made me a little angry is that no doctor ever mentioned that I should see an endocrinologist to take medication to lower this right at the beginning. At the time I thought it was pretty normal and did not know it has to be between 1 and 1.5 to conceive.
It wasn't until the 2nd year of trying that my husband and I went to a fertility specialist and he sent me to an endo. who prescribed me medication, lowering my TSH to 2.3 to date.
With all my other tests having great results, ovulating regularly, I have a hard time accepting that the only reason we are not getting pregnant is because of this TSH result!
The worst part of TTC is everyone around me telling me to stop trying or to relax! I just want to scream and say how the H am I going to get pregnant if I stop trying, I'm not the virgin Mary. Yes, I do realize not to take it so literally, and they are not saying it to be mean, but still. If I hear one more story about someone who was trying forever and then "stopped trying" and thats when she got pregnant........

I totally understand you're frustrations. I've had to stop telling people that were even ttc because they say,"we'll how many more do you want? Isn't 2 enough?" I've only been trying for a little over a year, and while my doc says all my tests came back normal, it's even more frustrating! Now that you have some clue as to what's "wrong" hopefully you'll get your bfp really soon!!

Thank you for the reply.
I come from a very European family, the questions about babies will never stop. Just have to deal with that. Even if we we had one baby, then the question would always be....where's the second!
Good luck with the next one!

It took us two years to the day to conceive our second. Sounds like you are finally getting it under control. I hope you get a BFP soon!

I had no problem convincing my husband to also get tested. The doctor said they his little men might not be champions but they were good. My husband was raised with 3 sisters and developed the gossip gen3 from them...so I laugh and tell him the boys are slow because they stop to gossip with each other instead doing their job

Today is our wedding anniversary and I am ovulating, so fingers crossed.

My DH and I have been TTC for 1 year and 5 months. Ever since our son was born sleeping. Its very difficult to loose your first child and can't conceive your 2nd. IDK I am loosing hope. It took us a long time to conceive our 1st too. But we were not trying, just having unprotected sex. Hopefully we get some BFP soon!

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN!!!!!!!!It drives me crazy every time I hear that phrase. My husband and I were just "relaxing" for a over a year. We are both done "relaxing" and actively trying. People that don't have trouble conceiving just don't understand....that for you if you don't try you most likely won't conceive. That's why we are all here aren't we?
I also think its partially because they have no idea what to say. Its what all people say like when someone dies everyone says "I'm sorry for your loss."....when you can't conceive they say "relax and stop trying and it'll happen..." *scoff*
