Not sure if this helps – I had an IUI and some medicated cycles which were unsuccessful. But we tried 8 cycles and had a BFP which ended in miscarriage.  Then we tried and were successful after another 8 cycles. I know we did have the bfp in there but we did have many many unsuccessful cycles. It was almost 18 months in total. Hang in there bee – I know how hard it is. FX for a BFP for you soon!

My sister was trying for exactly two years.. she was going to a fertility clinic who put her on clomid and had her tracking, nothing worked. She actually was planning on trying IUI/IVF but wanted to go to a  better clinic. The earliest that clinic could take her was june 7th.. she took the appointment and kind of gave up. She randomly got a BFP at the end of March without any help! It can happen!

I’ve heard of several cases where they had TTC for more than a year or two years even, and then right before they made the step to go medical, it happened naturally.

We tried for almost 3 years before a BFP which was a MC at 7 weeks.  Then it took another 16 months before another BFP which was a loss at 16 weeks.  And then another 6 months before another BFP, but ending at 18 weeks.  So unfortunately it takes us quite a while to get pregnant, but I’m hoping that maybe since it’s been less time between pregnancies every time, we don’t have to wait as long this time. Never had medical intervention to get pregnant, but was told I have PCOS.  Took clomid for 2 days and stopped because it made me feel awful.  I believe Acupuncture helped a lot to help us get pregnant.

My friend was only 26 and tried for a full year without anything. Then she went in for an U/S because her OB wanted to look to see if she had polyps or something, I can’t remember. Anyway, they saw on that U/S that she had already ovulated but according to all the things she had been tracking and basing her BD on, she was going to ovulate yet. So the next cycle, they started BDing 3 days earlier than usual and got pregnant.

Another coworker, in her early 30’s, had been trying for over a year, possibly approaching 2. They had done all sorts of tests and everything was coming back normal. I don’t know if she tried clomid or anything like that. But she started working more overtime to save up for IVF and stopped trying. She said they only did it once the whole month because she was so tired from working extra but she got a BFP. She has 2 kids now.

36 months. This was after a prior MC which took 14 months to conceive. All in all, 50 months before a successful pregnancy.

we started trying when I was 24, and it took us 19 months. We had just gotten DH a semen analysis to see where we were at as far as fertility and two weeks later we got our BFP! (His numbers were above average anyway lol) 


now im 4 days past my due date. He’s STILL making us wait for him haha!

I don’t have any advice, but just wanted to say I have my fingers and toes crossed for you…it sounds like you’ve had quite a journey.

bloomingflower:  We haven’t been trying as long as you but we’ve been trying for 7 months and don’t have any plans of ever doing IUI or IVF so I feel you.  I’m on Clomid (I already ovulate on my own) and DH just had a SA which actually came back ok.  I understand.
