Hello and welcome! My name is Caitlin. I am the host of this board. I am sorry that you have had no luck so far. It is very tough when all those around you get pregnant. Are you using opks or temping?

Thank you so much Bokkechick for the perfect siggie!!!

Hi Caitlin I have loads of ovaluation kits given by a friend who didn't need them. No luck with them all say negative but I have signs every month of ovaluation and period. Very confusing :/

I have a friend who's in pretty much your exact situation - so even though I don't have fertility issues, I've seen her go through it and understand it as well as an "outsider" can.

I think the biggest thing (and maybe the hardest thing) is not stress yourself out to much. A stressed out body is not a good baby-makin' environment. Relax. Enjoy the sex. And get REALLY, REALLY good at charting your monthly cycle. Record temperatures. Get to know your body and what it's up to.

If you're still having issues in a couple more months, talk to your doctor too. He/she will be able to look at your histories and decide if you should both be checked for fertility problems. But don't let that freak you out. Just because you're not getting pregnant right away doesn't mean you have a major problem. Every woman is different. We don't always have sex on the right day, even when we plan for it.

It's going to happen one way or another. Remember that!

Unfortunately you can gear up to O and not O. Do you temp?

Hi, I'm Megan! I am so sorry you arent getting pregnant on time! It's stressful! People used to tell me how easy it was to get pregnant young and now that we are trying, we have had no luck! But dont give up, keep your head up and it will happen!

Caitlin asked if you were temping, I second that...I starting temping a few weeks ago and its the best thing! Its super easy and maybe its just me, but when I look at my chart, I feel so proud of myself

anyway, and heres lots of baby to keep you going!

I am in your exact situation right now! It's so frustrating seeing my friends who have gotten pregnant in their first or second month of trying, when we've been trying for 8 months now. I've been eating healthier, drinking less soda, I think I have one Diet Coke every couple weeks and I'm exercising more and still nothing. I've started to track when I ovulate as well as my temp. which is way easy! I use the website/app FertilityFriend.com , but good luck!!

we've been trying 10mths now as well. hubby has low sperm count so it's going to take longer, i have no issues, i've been to the gyn all checked out. i've been using opks and i ovulate between 14-16 day of my 30 day cycle. it's frustrating but you'll get your bfp!!! it's not easy to relax, but don't give up hope!! I pray and that helps. i hope me& you and everyone else get their bfp's
