Hi everyone

I'm 38 and we're trying for our 2nd baby. Been trying for about a year.

Just started agnus castus but wondered if anyone out there had any other pearls of wisdom that I could try.

Hello Candypooka

Hello There, I am new to this site too (fairly new) and was hoping to get some advice, but not a lot of response sometimes. Everyone is busy I know.

Anyhow, I am in the same boat as you. 37 TTC our second and it's been so hard! This month will be a year for us TTC, it's been frustrating and demoralizing. Right now, I am on Clomid (it stinks) and Metformin, this is my first month on Metformin. This is my 5th time taking Clomid, but not in a row, it has been off and on this entire year. Have you been checked out by a specialist?
TTC #2 since Sep '10
Me: 38 DH: 45! (too old perhaps to even try?)
DD: born on 8/8/2006 au naturale <br />

Hi ladies,
We are trying for #1. I am 34 and DH is 35. We've both seen a lot of progress in the past 2 months trying natural fertility remedies.
We did a fertility cleanse and we're taking several herbs, vitamins, and supplements. Our overall health has improved - we just feel better - and I've seen improvements in my cycle. Before that, I had just come off of 5 months on Clomid. I am so happy to be done with that!
ME 34, "normal" // DH 35, "normal"
NTNP #1 since March 2009 // TTC #1 since Jan 2010
Diagnosed w/ "unexplained infertility"
~ 50 mg Clomid, March 2011 to July 2011
~ 1st IUI, June 2011 - BFN
~ Appointment w/ RE October 2011. Until then, and possibly after, we'll be taking a natural approach.
