Well we took two chances this month.. cd11 and cd 13 i usually ov right on day 14 or 15 latest.. i had pos test on day 13.. so we did it in right time frame.. I just think i am too old.. almost 39.. three months left.. I think i should just give up on this once im 39.. so depressed over the m/c and now the possibility this may never happen for me.

I’m really sorry 🙁 The good thing is is that you are ovulating regularly. I have 2 friends in their early 20s and it took them both 8 months of trying to conceive…then I have heard other people in their late 30s get pregnant immediately. how long have you been trying?

I’m really sorry that you are going through this, but I don’t understand the multiple accounts. You recently posted under your other account that you weren’t even sure you wanted a baby anymore, and you got a lot of advice that it doesn’t sound like you can mentally and emotionally handle this TTC journey right now. Please, for your own sake, and for that of your family, seek out some help and try to work on your anxiety and TTC obsession/depression before you continue TTC. Many of us here know how trying, exhausting, and frustrating this process can be, and your mental health needs to come first. Please understand that I’m saying this out of concern for you and a sincere hope that you are able to come to terms with your situation and find some peace about whatever needs to be done.

I’m currently 39…turning 40 in March. DH, who is 45, is getting a vasectomy reversal in June and we’re going to try for a baby. Totally leaving it up to God, not going to do any IVF or anything, just see what happens. I understand, I do, but your age is not the end-all-be-all factor. And let yourself relax a little – sounds like you and DH need a getaway. You just NEVER know….

My cousin is well into her 40s and pregnant with child 6! You’re not old! She had similar issues, at least one miscarriage around 12 weeks I believe, but they kept trying. It’s not too late for you, just keep trying and keep your body healthy.

My mom had fertility treatments (back then just hormones and pills) for 12 years. She had 3 misscarriages and wasn’t able to have children and she was told she never would. Then at almost 37 she had me. And at 39 she had my brother. We were perfectly healthy and we are in our 30s now. Don’t let age have this impact on you. It’s just a digit. Good luck!!

‘s comment. I don’t get the multiple accounts either. You also just posted a thread asking about IVF in another country. Is there a reason why you’ve used at least 5 different accounts? Try and stick to just one, and it’ll be easier to get the support you’re looking for. However, no matter how many times you change account names our advice will always
be same in getting help for yourself and the importance of ensuring you are emotionally and mentally stable.
As you mentioned before, you thought you needed prozac. When you see the doctor don’t be so dead set on just prozac, you may also benefit from a different type of medication such as valopric acid, carbamazepine, lithium bicarbonate, etc. Be open to what your mental health professional suggests.
Also take time to take up a hobby to occupy your mind more so it’s not just focused on TTC. Try going to dates with your husband to enjoy the time you guys do have together and decrease any stress/tension between you two.
