so we are still trying so far ive been told to wait another year by a specialist. this is depressing, i feel like hope is being lost now it seems like every month is another disappointment all my friends are having babies and its hard for me to be genuinely happy because of my situation.my health history is i have abnormal bleeding went on bc (pill) for 6months made me crazy so i stopped we have been having unprotected sex with no bc for 3yrs and after i stopped the bc its been about 7months the drs sd itll be super hard to concieve because of the abnormal bleeding. i also get bv often so the meds give me a yeast infection and its not good reproductive grounds. what should i do i just want to haveva chunky little baby is this so wrong

I’m sorry. That’s hard. Honestly, if you haven’t been using any BC for three years, I’d say it’s time to get a new specialist.
I saw in a previous post that you started charting. How did this month’s chart turn out? Did you ovulate? The charts, as you continue to pile them up, will have some really good clues for your (hopefully next) specialist and will help you not waste any more of your time.
I know how you feel about friends and babies. I am about to have a slew of newborns on my facebook in the next month. One of my good friends invited me to her babyshower on my birthday. Thank god it’s out of state so I have a good excuse not to go because it would be pretty hard, especially as I figured out that we’re going to have to put off TTC until later in the year than I hoped. I also had a dream/nightmare the other day that my two best friends both announced they were pregnant on the same day and I was super “happy-sad” and my husband was a total jerk about it. So apparently I have baby on the brain!!
*Hugs* Hang in there.

@Mrs.LemonDrop: i cant stop crying its like a vicious cycle every month i get all worked up thinking its different and it all ends balled up with a fist full of tears… im ovulated on time according to charting and my period tracking appmy cycle is about 33 days i get ovulation pain and everything and still nothing. atleat once a week i have a dream about being pregnant or a mom… this week i had i dream that i gave birth and couldnt find my baby.(talk about a sign huh) i just got this specialist it seems like they just dont want yo do further tests the responses i get are “just try for another year” “your still young itll happen” ” your too ypung to worry about that” im 24 and althought iam young how dare they withhold treatment because they dont see me as a model mom all because im young. im engaged to a man ive been with 5yrs, we both work, are both in school, both christian ppl our lives are in the right direction and he has a 6yr old daughter and hes an awesome father i feel like we have enough love to raise a baby. we are deciding on eloping so we can save money fpr clomid and ivf if needed. sorry my response is so long

I don’t know your history but if you’ve been trying for 3 years, I think you need to get a new doctor. Abnormal bleeding has a reason and it alone shouldn’t be preventing you from concieving. Any good doctor should be running various blood work and ultrasound/xray tests to see what your body is doing.
ETA: Also, I just started clomid. If you get it prescibed, just ask that the doctor checks that generic is ok and have it sent to target. Its a whole $9 for one month supply of 50mg WITHOUT insurance.

@mrsedwardslpn: sounds like you should see a specialist . If your doctor won’t refer you get a new doctor. That is ridiculous that you’ve been trying for so long and he still wants you to wait another year. best advice is to learn as much as possible about your cycles/ body. Do your research. The more you know the more serious doctors will listen to you and be more proactive. I’m also a big believer in acupuncture and herbs. Find one that specializes in fertily. Sorry your having such a hard time! Baby dust

I’m not sure about your medical history, but I see clomid mentioned. Have you tried the Pregnitude supplement? It’s OTC and not very expensive, and it seems to give good results/reproductive support.
