I don't know how much more I can go on with this. My husband and I have been trying for three years. I have a son from a previous relationship. I'm on da 84 of my current cycle, my previous cycle was 45 days and the one before that was 165. Prior to that my doc had me go on the pill for 8 months in an attempt to regulate my hormones. Everything we do has to be out of pocket I'm 24, hes 30. I don't understand why this is so difficult. His entire family and my family are so fertile, then there is us just stuck sitting here. We had a mc this past spring and one a year ago. I'm not even sure why I'm trying anymore. We dont actively try anymore, but i take folic acid every day and we both eat healthy.

Hey I'm new here and hope you don't mind me butting in.Just wanted to say that I completely understand how you feel. DH and I have "only" been trying for 1 1/2 years, but I've had my moments when I really lost all hope and felt like giving up. It's just so hard to be surrounded by kids and toddlers all day (my husband and I both work with children) while conceiving your own has proven to be so difficult.

I just realized we're about the same age. I'm 25, DH is 30. I have thyroid issues and endo. Still, we both eat healthy as well, we don't smoke, don't drink. Basically we're doing everything right. But still...We had a failed iui last month, and now we're looking at IVF. Probably gonna start that process around the end of the year.

Everytime I try to picture my life without children I literally break down and cry like a baby. And if anyone says "relax, you're so young, it'll happen" one more time, I might have a meltdown. Lol

Have you tried anything like iui yet? Hang in there!

Just wanted to say, I understand how hard it is to keep trying. This is has been 2 years and 3 months for us. We are older though, so we may really be out soon! Big {{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}

Just checking in. No luck yet. :/ Just had af visit. So no luck yet. I currently dont have insurance so cant go to any specialists. I can only use what is affordable at my local hospital. They have very good staff and services for decent pricing. I'm thinking of looking into getting DH tested.

just wanted to say i am sorry its been such a long hard road for you. i have been TTC with my husband for about 15 months now so not quite as long as you. I am 35 though and feel like time is running out. i, too have a child from a previous marriage, as does my husband. we just REALLY want one together. thinking about not having that is really awful. have you tried any natural things like royal jelly or soy iso?

After having been TTC for 5+ years here, I certainly understand.

Just because your family and his family are fertile doesn't mean anything really. What kinds of things HAVE you tried?

I know you don't have insurance, but have you been searching for some? It would be best to have insurance when you're pregnant. And you might be able to find some specialists at a discounted price.

It's important to NOT give up. Heck I'm 32 and TTC my first.

Have you tried temping?
Thank you SSWC maker for my amazing siggy
