Name/Partner's Name: Amanda/Jerry
Age/Partner's Age: 33/41
How long have you been together: 8 yrs, married for 2 yrs
How long have you been TTC: Actively TTC for 3 yrs, ntnp 4 yrs
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: I have diminished egg reserve because of Premature Ovarian Failure (Premature Menopause) and a Luteal Phase Defect. My DH has MFI, with a low count, low motility, extremely low volume and extremely low morph. :cry:
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) I should hopefully be able to start IVF in Feb/March! Because I have a few eggs left (seriously, only a few), my insurance would not allow me to jump right to IVF. So, I had the required IUI's with Clomid and injectables. Once I get to start the IVF, we will be able to determine if the few remaining eggs are of a decent quality. If they are poor, my TTC dream will be finished, as we won't be able to afford donor eggs. But, other than IVF, I'm taking my prenatals and progesterone. Other than that, I'm not bothering with anything. I've tried all the supplements to no avail and I don't need to temp anymore at this point in TTC.
Anything about yourself you want to share: I've learned that TTC is filled with nothing but heartache and despair. At times, I feel very defeated and bitter towards the world. I avoid baby showers and the baby sections of stores like the plague. If I hear someone's good news, I promptly excuse myself to go cry, vent, or mope around. I now hate sex and I secretly think my poor husband does as well. TTC has negatively affected every aspect of my life. And, you know what? The way I feel is completely normal for those struggling with infertility! It took me awhile to realize that, but it is true. So, no matter how down I am, I'm always here to help. None of us are alone.
Amanda: 34: DOR, POF, LPD.
DH: 41: Concentration: 58 mil. Motility: 38% Volume: 1/2 ml Morph: less than 3%
TTC: Month #41
Chemical 7/12
Chemical 11/12
8/29: IUI #1 100 mg Clomid and Ovidrel...BFN but left me with a 19mm cyst on left ovary :-(
September: IUI #2 Follistim and Ovidrel.... BFN
3/7: RE appt to begin IVF action plan!
Insurance is requiring 1 more medicated IUI before starting IVF.
IVF #1 to begin in April 2014, immediately following IUI #3 failure.
3/8: per RE, starting 600 mg daily CoQ10, first time using
IUI #3: 3/18 starting Gonal-F injections, Endometrin
3/22: trigger
3/24: final IUI
4/4: BFP!
4/8: 15dpiui beta 420
4/10: 17dpiui beta 785
4/14: 21dpiui final beta 2,885!
4/18: 1st u/s! 1 beautiful sac and fetal pole seen!
4/25: 2nd u/s, saw the beautiful heartbeat!

Name/Partner's Name: Melanie/Clint
Age/Partner's Age: I'm 29 almost 30 Dh 30
How long have you been together: 6 years married for 3 months :)
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: one child together age 4 and both have a child from previous marriages both age 10
How long have you been TTC: officially 2 months but wasn't using any real type of bc for about a year.
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: I only have one ovary and fallopian tube due to a rare tumor. I also have luteal phase defect. Far as we know Dh is fine.
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) currently taking B complex plus high dose B6, vitamin C, prenatals, vitex and guaifenesin (near O to increase CM). Also charting on FF (bbt CM and OPKs).
Anything about yourself you want to share: we feel blessed to have our children but really want one more. I hope I'm not judged for already having children as I know so many of you are struggling with infertility. Even though I didn't get pregnant with my oyher two right away I'm more concerned this time. I've had two chemicals which I'm sure is due to my LPD. I never used to have a problem with LPD and I'm really hoping the vitamins will correct it but if not I will go to the Dr. Especially since we haven't been preventing for a while now it worries me.

Name/Partner's Name: Heather/DH

Age/Partner's Age: 28/27

How long have you been together: 5 years together 1 year married

Do you have children, if so how many and ages: no children

How long have you been TTC: I went off BC at the end of October. My cycle has been wonky so we haven't been actively trying but certainly aren't preventing it.

Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: When I was 21 my doctor diagnosed me with PCOS but the last two doctors I've seen told me that I couldn't possibly have it. I'm hoping the last two are correct.

What are your TTC plans for 2014: Due to a big move and new jobs coming in January we will be NTNP but once we get settled I hope to make it a more active "trying". I have been taking vitamins, fish oil and many herbal suppliments: Wild yam and Chastetree, Maca, as well as a feminine comfort blend.

Anything about yourself you want to share: I super paranoid about my pre birth control irregular cylces, the possible PCOS and what damage I've done having been on BC for so long. I've only been part of these boards for a short time but reading everyone else stories give me hope that despite my worries I do still have a chance.

Hello ladies!
This is my first post but I gave been stalking this site for a while. I'm 25, husband is 27. We have been married since April 2013 but together since April 2005. I got off b/c in may 2013 we have been TTC seriously since about July. We have one angel baby-natural m/c in October 2013 at 6 weeks. Was very optimistic since didn't need a DNC or anything. I have not been DX with any fertility issues but have hadn't had any tests further than the standard ultrasounds. AF played a dirty trick on us last month and gave me every pregnancy symptom in the book, then she reared her ugly face right on time. That's when I realized I was a major symptom spotter and needed to chill out!currently on cd19. Feel a lot less stressed this go around. Praying that we get a bfp this month. If not I plan on starting bbt charting- have everything just wanted yo try one more month. I also don't use opks very frequently so will start that as well. Use ovuline app on my phone for cycle charting etc. Wishing for bfps for everyone this month!!
