Anyone dealing with secondary infertlity?

Postby cupcakep1nk » Sun Feb 26, 2012 12:06 pm

My son was a 1 cycle BFP and now we're on cycle 14 and I'm really losing my mind. Hubs & I have both been the RE and nothing shows abnormal except for my hubs morphology but they said it wasn't worrisome since his count was double the average. AF is due tomorrow and honestly I just might cry for a week straight this month if she arrives lol

ME!! We have been TTCing for 24 cycles now :(. My DD was conceived after TTCing for just 3 cycles. So I am REALLY starting to lose it! Also age is not on our side I am 32 now, so time is running out. But I know the feeling of secondary infertility, its like you don't know where you belong or that no one takes you seriously cause you have one already. I have even felt lost on the forums, cause I don't feel like I belong anywhere. :( Our first RE appt is next Monday, and I am ready to see if their are obivous issues! GL! And we should keep in touch..

Hi ladies.

Unfortunately I am as well. I will be 40 in November so my clock is really ticking. I have been trying for almost 3 years. Got pregnant really easy with my first three (the youngest is 9). It really sux and is so frustrating.

I wish you both your BFPs soon! Sending luck and baby dust your way xx

I'm in the same boat! My first child was conceived when I forgot to take my pill for a couple of days! Now that we're actively trying for a second baby I get nothing but BFNs! Went to the RE and both of us are perfectly fine...everything looks good for me and my husband's numbers are off the chart good. So why is this one so hard?

And the worst is the questions from family and friends..."so when are you going to give Jack a little baby brother or sister?" How do you answer that?

NTNP since 6/2009 - m/c 11/2009
TTC since 6/2010 - started with RE 9/2011
In 2012 we had...
5 cycles of Clomid - all BFN
1 combo cycle Clomid/Menopur - BFN
3 cycles of Menopur with IUI - 2 BFPs :angel:
3 natural BFPs :angel:

In 2013 I'm off meds for awhile, trying naturally with diet, exercise and supplements.

We really need to get our own forum! That would be great! And you're right, I don't feel like I fit anywhere. This cycle was a bust as well :(

Hi ladies, not to barge in, but there is a forum for TTC #2 or more:
http://www.twoweekwait.com/community/mo ... forum&f=30

Or you could always start a buddy group specifically for secondary infertility here:
http://www.twoweekwait.com/community/mo ... forum&f=22

Good luck to all of you! :luck:

Hi all - I am so happy to have found this topic. If someone wants to start a buddy group, I'm totally in. (Not sure how to do it myself.)

I have one daughter conceived practically on the first try. Now I'm starting cycle 12 trying to conceive #2. :( It is very disheartening, but I sometimes feel as if I shouldn't complain. I am so lucky to have my daughter, but I really, really want a second child.

Hi all, yep same boat. TTC #2 for 17 months now, RE just told me my AMH (egg reserve) is 5.3 = low & im only 27, it should be between 14-30!!! Although i ovulate every 26 days, he has put me on 3 rounds of Clomid. DD was conceived on the 4th cycle only 19months ago it drives me nuts. Im currently on CD 24 but im pretty sure im not pregs.
