I had tried for over a yr to conceive and no luck. I’m currently not trying to get pregnant at the moment but if I had tried for over a yr with no luck, should I have gone to the dr? I think I’m more upset with the idea of never being able to get pregnant in the future. I want more kids later on but will I even be able to?! :'(

You should definitely go to the doctor if you’ve been trying for over a year. They can do some tests just to give you some more information on the situation. But don’t lose heart, it can sometimes take a really long time to conceive. I have a cousin and an aunt on different sides of my family who each took several years to fall pregnant.

Mrgrz07: Join the 1+ board, that is one of the most supportive groups of ladies I have never met. It took me 2 years trying before I got pregnant, and I felt as defeated as you sound at the one-year stage. That is when I joined the 1+ TTC board and the ladies on there just understand, and are not patronizing – No one will tell you to ‘just relax’ anyway!! But yes, as pp said, you might.want to go to the doctor and start investigating why it might be taking you a little longer. I hope it works out for you.

Sorry you’re struggling to get pregnant. The standard advice is that you should go to the doctor after 12 months (or 6 months if you’re over 35) so yes, you should go and see a doctor. Hope you get some answers and get your BFP soon!

macmint83: thank you! I’ll look into that one. And that’s good to hear, when ppl say relax it’s a real fuse lighter. You can’t relax when your body isn’t cooperating

Daffadowndilly: 8 months after my miscarriage I think I began to ovulate naturally at least that’s what I think, I had gotten blood test done and an ultrasound and everything came back normal& that same day that I got my results i ovulated which I hadn’t been able to feel as strong for the past months. So it’s been since May that I have been ovulating naturally but I did take cloniphene in June which I really didn’t need but the dr told me to take in case. And he gave me another dose in July which I still haven’t taken since I don’t wanna try and do it natural before putting stuff in my body. And just yesterday morning I felt ovulation. So I’m just in debate whether to even take the clomiphene and then go to the dr or take it this cycle and then go to the dr. I’m wondering if maybe my tubes are scarred or blocked. I did start trying to april of last yr and within 3 ‘months I got pregnant which was totally a surprise But ended in a mc at 5 wks . So maybe that contributed to me having issues

Mrgrz07: I’m so sorry OP :/ I know how you feel, 15th cycle here and still no luck. As PP said above, go over to the 1+ year TTC board. Those ladies are wonderful. And since it has been a year, I highly suggest you see a docror to get some answers and help ease your mind. And your partner should see a doctor too, and get a SA. A lot of women think it is their fault they are not getting pregnant, when in actuality, its the male partner who is having the issue (or both parties). Good Luck & see you over on the 1+ year board 🙂

Mrgrz07: Yes, definitely go to a doctor. There are many things they can do these days to help you.
I tried to conceive for over a year on my own with no luck; I’m now pregnant with baby #2 thanks to medical help.

Mrgrz07: I’m so sorry you are going through this. Infertility sucks! The thing that comes so easily for others, is so hard for us. I know you are scared that you will never have a child, but there are still so many things you can do between now and never having kids. (I speak from experience–TTC 4 years, 1 MC, so many medicated with BD cycles I’ve lost count, 5 IUI and 2 IVF’s and now a month away from my first Egg Donor cycle.)
First, I would run, not walk, to get a work up, for both you and DH. The problem might not be yours. Also if you want to stay with a medicated cycle (with no other interventions) then you might want to try Femera. For some women it works better. If you OB isn’t familar with it, have him/her do some research.
I know it is hard, but keep the faith (I’m in one of my hopeful moods right now). The goal is to have a child, just be open to how that is going to happen for you.

Mrgrz07: I agree with the other posts, go see a doctor asap, get tested both of you. You’ll probably be referred to a specialist that can help you make a plan and work with you to get you pregnant. Get your DH involved and hold hands as you walk together this difficult yet well worth journey. Best of luck. Feel free to join either the 6 month or 1 year + TCC threads or both.
