Oh sweetie (( hugs )) Try not to think too far ahead. How old are you? I’d wait for blood work and see what happens from there. It could be nada or it could be an easy fix. hang tough!

I totally hear ya! For me, I was extremely sad and upset when I had to come to terms that we need help getting pregnant. It was my dream to always just have a baby without having to try – just a happy surprise/gift/whatever. It is sad for me to know that isn’t going to be the way it will happen. It took a long time for me to accept it.

Obviously from the TTC board you can see that there are a lot of people in the same boat.

I’m going to start clomid on my next cycle, and I’ve heard mostly good things about it. At least if you figure out you aren’t ovulating, you will know what the problem is and you know what can be used to treat it.

Best of luck to you!!

@SSLM:  Awww, I’m sorry you’re feeling that way.  It’s the worst and you’re right it is scary to think that.  One thing that is good is that she’s jumping right in and wants to figure out the problem asap instead of letting you adjust off the pill.  And it’s a good thing you’re here!  There are plenty of us with fertility issues that can provide you with reassurance and info if you need it.  I know it’s scary, but also know that it doesn’t mean you will definitely have a problem.  After TTC for a year, I have seen many people with all kinds of conditions that cause infertility end up getting pregnant easily!

If she thinks that ovulating is the real issue, it is a simple fix.  The stress of TTC with no issues is so difficult and most people have to wait a year before there’s any intervention. This way the waiting is cut in half for you.

I’m trying to come up with the positives here ๐Ÿ™‚

I would just also like to mention that my cycles were crazy and all over the place. I’m pregnant now and got my positive on cycle day 52. By the size of the baby I ovulated on day 32. So even with a long cycle I got pregnant ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s definitely very scary when you first get that realization that you might need assistance in getting pregnant. We’ve been trying for a year and a half and I’ve never felt more broken. The positive is, once you accept that you do need help, the closer you are to getting pregnant. The waiting is awful, but you’re on the right track to getting some answers and some help very quickly.

I’m sorry you didn’t get good news but at least they seem to have an idea of what is wrong. The ladies over on the FTC boards are great if you’re lookin for support.  I was just posting that acknowledging that I’m probably not going to have a “happy accident” was one of the hardest things for us too.

@SSLM:  I think it’s much better to know early and get it fixed.  And you are DEFINITELY not alone on here!

@SSLM:  Definitely better to know early. Six months is good – saves you the heartache of having to wait for a full year without getting the option to really TRY for a pregnancy.

@SSLM:  Sorry to hear that. Like others have said, it seems like your doctor is very proactive! And fingers crossed your body might work itself out in the next few months.

All the best!
