Have you had to struggle with ttcing a large family with fertility issues? Do you let ple know.

I have found my last couple pregnacies that when folks find out we used help they get very judgemental and even hostile.

what is up with that??

hi as you may know iv 5 lovely childen from the ages of 14 down to 3 , i had no problems conceiving them ,we are trying for number 6 ,and this time prob due to being 39 iv not managed fulling even with clomid ,went to see doc this week and all looks good and its olvulation day today so who knows for this mth , but yes i get the same reaction as you do , "why do you want more children " "dont you have enough" while looking down at you like you have 2 heads ,its funny how judgemenal some people are i also get the "your to old for any more " thats from my mother lol , but i dont care what others think ,it can be up setting and when you having problems fulling it makes itmore so ,a little bit of understaning would be nice ,we are all different with different needs and lives ,we cant just cut of that need for child bearing ,i love having babies ,love being a mum , its as simple as that .

Well, I have hyperactive ovaries which lead to other health problems. Not a fertility problem in the strictest sense. But one of the pastors at our church (he's my husband's associate pastor) is frustrated with us because I will not consider sterilization to deal with my problem. He doesn't see having a large family as a good way to handle things (when I'm pregnant or nursing, my ovaries behave of course). I know that he's not the only one who thinks that, because of money and lifestyle stuff, but I'm pretty confient with my choices and I honestly think it's between me and God.

My DH made a bad choice and got a vasectomy after #3 and he relized it and we got the vasectomy reversed in Feb 2011 so not fertility issues per-say but it makes it a bit harder for us
