AF got me today.I must have O earlier than I thought Bcs I wasn't expecting AF until February 2nd.At first I was so happy when I went to the bathroom and I wiped little brown,I started thanking God Bcs I was sure it was IB,i had no cramps and I thought I was only 10dpo,boy I was wrong.Im cramping like crazy and I feel so broken but suprisingly I'm not that upset,I want to try again and keep trying but I don't have the strength to do it.How do I do it?How do i recharge?I lost faith I'm going to have a natural pregnancy,I feel like a failure of a woman.

Hugs Danaa. Sorry AF got you. I also feel like I'm expecting every month but AF always shows. It's all right if you need assistance getting pregnant. it doesn't make you less of a woman at all. Maybe taking a ttc break will help. I think I should take one too until I can save up for another ivf.

Oh danaa I'm so sorry. I know how depressing all this ttc bs is. I wish we knew what the problem was with our bodies. I tell myself every month that I'm taking a break, but when you want something so bad how do you give up even one month on it? Stay strong, it's gonna happen for all of us. Praying for you all

Hello ladies,i haven't posted in a while but here I'm again being disappointed and angry on my own body:(this cycle we really tried,we tried so hard,we BD every day for 6days straight and I thought I O yesterday but my body decided not to:((that means that all the BD we did was for nothing,how do one deal with disappointment of their own body?Why couldn't i have had this great timed BD schedule?Why not?Im really upset and i don't know how to deal with this.Probably it doesn't sound too bad for you ladies but i feel defeated.

I have a question hoping someone can help shed some light on....

My husband and I have been ttc for a long time with a miscarriage just over 2 years ago. We have both been checked out and have unexplained infertility. The only test I havent had is a lap for endo. I have regular periods, barely any pain except cramps a couple days before my period and sometimes at ovulation but I have started noticing since tracking everything that I get very loose bowel movements that look like very small pieces of tissue every month right before my period starts and sometimes right around ovulation. Is it possible I have endo? Both my husband and myself have recently started acupuncture but I'm concerned if i have endo it won't help. My acupuncturist said she thinks I'm very healthy reproductively but I can't shake this feeling something is really wrong... Any women with endo that didn't exhibit a lot of symptoms? Did anyone experience this bowel issue? Any replies would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome ttc,I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage.I have zero experience and knowledge regarding endo,i hope you get ur answers soon.I think the best solution is talk about this with ur doc.Have you had an hsg and a hysteroscopy after ur misscariage?Do you temp or use opks?

Hi TTCfortoolong- I'm sorry your journey has been a struggle and for your mc. I suffered a mc a few months back. I've been ttc for 41 cycles now. It's a rough road, but thankfully this site and the women have been my rock. I think the only way to be sure it's endo is a laparoscopy. I'm not 100% sure, but from what I've read that's how they diagnose it. I would def talk to my doctor about it. It's better to do it sooner than later. Luckily endo can be removed. I hope it works out for you and you get your bfp soon.

Hi im 30 and my dh is 25 we have beem married for 4 yrs we have not been actively trying all 4 yrs but we have not prevented it either i was diagnosed with dor low amh level i have done 1 iui clomid cycle negative was told my best chances of conceiving is donor egg ivf got a few other opinions same story i took a break from it all mentally and emotionally for about 6 months now i am back woth a mew doctor that i love as of right now i waiting out a possible cyst weird thick lining pregnancy blood trst negative not sure whats going on but my new doctor is being cautious before starting treatment she wants everythimg perfect and didnt even mention donor eggs she said i believe u can do it with ur own eggs i have age on ur side even id u have less eggs we will find a good quality one and to focus on quality rather than quantity. I go see the nurse tomm to see if this cyst has gone and to check my bloodwork again it mighr be a pregnancy also we will see such a tough road to take but im glad there is others out there to speak to all stay positive we we get our joy
