I’m so sorry that you are having such as rough time.  It must be so anoying that your doctor wouldn’t do anything yet, especially wth your history.

Can you find a different doctor? One who is a little more agressive and a little more responsive.

Two quick questions– how old are you and is this the same father as your son? Both of those play into the equation of how quickly doctors will act.

Good luck! I am sure this is a really, really frustrating process for you!

bouncybee:  So sorry you’re going through this. And that your doctor is unable to give you answers sooner. I don’t have a lot of advice but what about trying Vitamin B6 or B Complex to lengthen your LP? ::Hugs::

bouncybee:  I’m goin on 3.5 years of TTC, so I totally understand your frustration. (We are moving on to using an egg donor). But I wanted to pass on some advice to lengthen your lutenal phase–use progestrone. Many people use a cream you can buy at a health food store and rub into your skin. But my Fertility Nutritionist suggested this formula. I’ve been using it for a one month and I really like it

Also, make sure you are using whole milk (from grass-fed cows, if  you can). When you take the fat out of the milk, it throws all the hormone profiles off. 

Good Luck and Baby dust!

bouncybee:  O gosh, please don’t feel like a freak! I bet she was just trying to be sensitive to you and it came out the wrong way :(. I’m sorry that happened, I can only imagine how hard it was. 

I guess my advice really was unhelpful then, because it sounds like you are doing everything right for your body and fertility already. It also sounds like you are really well researched and doing everything you can so that when you do become pregnant again, that baby will have the best chance in the world. 

And you aren’t crying for no reason – you’ve been through some really, really awful things. And are somehow managing to still have a great outlook pretty consistently. You’r perfectly entitled to a vent or a rant whenever you need one.

bouncybee:  You sre not a freak! Lots of women have sruggles TTC. I find that IRL most women just don’t talk about it. I bet other women you know IRL are struggling or have struggled too. There’s lots of us here too. I don’t have any suggestions, but I wanted to give my support and let you know that you’re not alone in feeling the way you do.  My friends just pop out babies like wildfire and I’ve been TTC over a year, had 2 going on 3 surgeries and other treatments and have never even seen a + test.  Also, I know that there’s at least 2-3 women on the 12+ months TTC thread struggling with multiple miscarriages. The thread isn’t just for those trying a long time, but those with medical issues TTC as well. I’d check it out. They might have some advice, or at least some support to make you feel less alone.
