Eeek! The hijama can help tell exactly what's going on in your body?? subhanAllah, and here i thought it only cleanses it!
Alhamdulilah, I'm glad the hijama went well, Hopefully the hijama did wonders and you're body is ready inshaAllah!
Praying for you!

:shock: Oh wow, that's creepy! I'm glad you told me about these "dodgy hijama people", I'll keep that in mind inshaAllah!
Most likely I'll just ask the Sheikh here if he knows any ladies that do hijama properly. Just waiting till he recovers form an open heart surgery, inshaAllah.

CD5 is boring, I agree.. but InshaAllah time will fly by and all that waiting/testing will be worth it! What's the grapefruit juice for?

I'm in CD 12 I think, I'm not really paying much attention to my body atm, as I am overloaded with work and studies (I completely jumped out of bed today and forgot to take my temp :(). But I feel like I might have ovulated today, or maybe I'll ovulate tomorrow, Allahu A'lam. Hopefully tomorrow's temp will clear things up, inshaAllah! That's IF I remember to take it! :doh:

I am paying attention to the amount of coffee I'm drinking per day though, and IT'S NOT GOOD! I'm drinking 2-3 mugs a day and i know it's bad, especially when ttc, but I just can't seem to stop! I either drink coffee to keep me awake OR I drink it to make the headache go away :( and I don't do good with headaches.

Off to bed inshaAllah, it's 2:30 am :|

Dana, Jzk khair! I'll be making dua for you and everyone on this thread. We were diagnosed with a blocked Fallopian tube and initially my DH had really low sperm count, but he had surgery for that. At first his counts didn't go up much but at our last ivf attempt he had really good counts. So I don't know why I can't seem to get pregnant. I have regular cycles but mild pcos and I taje 500 mgs metformin. From the hsg that I had six years ago, I should have one open tube.
Still hopeful, I did hijama a couple times and I always felt so cleansed after. There is a husband and wife couple who does it that we know but they are quite far from us. Hope this is your cycle iA.

Dana, I was just about to mention my coffee habit! I can't quit either. I drink 2 cups on a well behaved day but I usually drink 3. I have instant in the morning and then I make myself a mocha in the late afternoon.

-bbe. Awh, May Allah give you patience and bless you. I really want to do an hsg as well because I've had a nasty uterine infection after my D&E (Stayed in hospital for 6 days and 5 nights, and missed DD's funeral/janaza. It was horrible, Alhamdulilah) and I can't help but feel like one of my tubes might be blocked. InshaAllah it's not, though.
Can you do another hsg since it's been a while? Just to make sure the other one is still open.
Maybe another SA to make sure the sperm count is still high?

What is the metformin for? I've been hearing about it a lot lately.

I usually stop drinking coffee right after I get a bfp, but I feel like I should also stop it during TTC as well. Do you think it affects the egg quality? If I had more time on my hands I definitely would read about all this, but I know myself, Once I start "Googling", time flies and I always regret it and suffer the consequences. Meanwhile I just force myself to drink lots of water to balance out the caffeine.. I have NO idea if that even makes sense, lol.

Also, Sorry if you've answered this before, but do you temp and use OPKs?

Dana, inshaAllah your dd is waiting for you in jannah, hugs sis.
The thing is my insurance won't cover anything related for infertility. I'd have to pay out of pocket for the hsg and my RE said I didn't have to do it again. If I have to do ivf then I don't want to add to the expense. I mean, I do wish it was easier for me to get pregnant. In the beginning we had considered getting a laparoscopy but the path was never cleared for that. I just make dua whatever has shifa I get to do. I'm also 33 so the clock is ticking!

My in laws tell me not to drink coffee, that's why I'm not conceiving. I don't think a cup or two should hurt. They seem to think there's nothing wrong with chai tea but coffee is the root of infertility! Doesn't make sense to me, they both have caffeine.

Salams ladies :)

Please could I join? It's so nice to find Muslim support group on here, me and DH have been trying for almost 2 years with nothing so far, I am Tunisian and he is Libyan but we live in London (born and grew up for DH, born but lived in Tunis for me until 18) - it's such a frustrating journey, but inshAllah Rabi blesses us soon. I'm always asking Him in every prayer, and also doing dua in the hope it happens soon...just so hard and in the arab community (I'm sure everywhere really), I am constantly getting "when are you going to get pregnant"/why are you not pregnant/when will you have kids/hurry up etc etc and I feel like screaming OMG I AM TRYING!!! Lol!

I'm CD 7 today, trying to relax for a bit until my appointment with Dr in April inshAllah, reading Surah Maryam as much as I can and praying to Allah that He blesses us soon inshAllah and ask of Him not to test me much longer in matters of health or fertility...inshAllah we all get our BFPs soon and nice to meet you all

Nice to hear from you Amina! InshaAllah you'll get that bfp soon. I also read surah Maryam. there's a lot of pressure in every community to have kids right away. but sometimes it's nice to have alone time with DH for a bit before kids come inshaAllah, although I understand the agony of trying and nothing happening.

Salam ladies and WELCOME Amina we're happy to have you join. And hey I'm a Londoner too :) , i look really forward to updates on this buddy group. You guys are really patient mA. It's nice hearing from you.

I moved away from obsessing about ttc just the past few days and it has helped give me so much perspective. IA i can hang on to that.
@dana the grapefruit juice is supposed to help your body make EWCM which is what the EPO is also for. Clomid creates hostile ewcm apparently so I'm taking measures just in case. People take mucinex/robitussin but the syrup has alcohol in it and also i think i may be allergic to the main ingredient so i can't have that.

@Bbe i dont think coffee will bethe cause of you not conceiving quickly. As long as you're having it in moderation.

@everyone ..I haven't had ANY side effects from the clomid. Don't know when I'll ovulate. . Just waiting but only at cd8 long way to go hehe.

What's happening with everyone? xxx
29 y/o / live in London / One wonderful child = 8 years old. Conceived very quickly @ 20 y/o, no fertility issues.

-Actively ttc since December 2013.
-PCOS with Irregular cycles.
-HSG (Jan 2015) showed clear tubes.
-First clomid cycle (Feb/March 2015). Chemical pregnancy.
-second clomid cycle March/April 2015.

Using: opks (IC and CB), clomid days 2-6, temping, EPO, grapefruit juice, folic acid, hijama therapy(cupping) and prayer.

Hey ladies

Thank you for the lovely welcomes :) Loving this thread already hehe inshAllah we get some BFPs going on in here!!

Dana - InshAllah your little one is in Jenna - I read this beautiful hadith that said any babies who leave their mothers too soon, wait for them in Jenna and pull them towards Jenna inshAllah when the time comes, you are so strong to go through all of that and inshAllah soon it is naseeb that you have your beautiful sticky bfp :)

bbe - I also drink coffee, I am sure that it won't hurt your chances - I mean look at all those unhealthy/smoking/drinking women that get pregnant, if a few cups of coffee are your only vices then I am sure inshAllah won't make a difference to your chances hun

Stillhopeful - Aw that's so good that you are not obsessing about ttc, I also tried that from last month and ofcourse at around 11 and 12 dpo I'm thinking omg what if...but the overall tww was so much less stressful. Just focussing on our holiday to Monaco in April inshAllah (woooohooo) and looking forward to our next specialist appointment, inshAllah he can help us and inshAllah your relaxed attitude gets you your bfp :)

Danaa - welcome :) You have been ttc around same time as me...so frustrating isn't it! I had my HSG last month, they said you're more fertile in the time afterwards I think the 3 months or 6 months after? So hope you get your bfp soon...Has your DH been tested at all? Because if everything is okay with you, then maybe it's something small with him? Hopefully its neither of you though

As for me - CD 9 today borinnnnnng lol, nothing to report, not in the bding mood either lol just in a "urgggh can't be bothered" mood - plus I know this is super lazy but I have realllly curly hair so I straighten it and I just haaate doing it, so everytime after BD when I do ghusl I have to then spend 1hour doing my hair to look at least 1% presentable the next day lol and that takes time and dedication man!! lol but will get down to business tomorrow I think!

Hope everyone is good xxx

Aw danaa I know the feeling all too well- you never imagine you will be in this situation- but I try to think of it as the harder God makes it for us the bigger the reward at the end :) twins would be amazing lol!

Don't count yourself out, it's only month 4 after lap, give it 6 until you start worrying hun, easier said than done I know...i'm hopefully gonna try IUI soon if my Dr can hurry up and refer me to private clinic because forget waiting on the NHS (I'm in UK so we have the free healthcare but boy is it lonnnnng!)

I haven't O'd yet, I think this weekend/Monday I will O so will get focussed on the bding in a couple of days lol. Mind you, focussing on it hasn't done much for me so far! InshAllah very soon

Hope you get your bfp too, what day in your cycle are you?xxx
