TTC #1 just turned 35

Postby bopsy » Tue Nov 13, 2012 8:58 am

I must say I was very unhappy approaching 35, what with all the stuff you read about this "magical" age where some undescribable force takes away a massive percentage of your potential fertility.
Anyway, I had my 35th birthday one week ago, and O'd late for the 2nd month in a row (been stressed with moving house).
We timed everything right, lots of :bd: . nearing the end of the 2ww, got a few :bfn: in the last few days and evil :af: arrived this morning at 5am, then the tears arrived, and the dispair, and the "what's wrong with my body?" thoughts.
BF says "don't worry, keep trying", lots of :hugs:
I'm healthy, I don't smoke, I've cut right down on caffeine and booze, I eat a balanced healthy diet, I take pre-con vits, omega 3, co-enzyme, chart my BBT, check my cervix.

I think I will try my moon cup (instead cup) after BD this cycle, get some reflexology and do some more yoga.

So frustrated, but I think we need to try another few months before I see my GP. I'd rather do it naturally that take clomid.

Just wanted a moan on here, just cos I know you guys understand.

Sorry to hear about af turning up and happy belated birthday!! Have you thought of taking vitex? Some people don't like the sound of it and it can lengthen your cycle but its supposed to be like a natural clomid. The first cycle I took it I really felt ovulation and got my first ever positive opks. Good luck Hun!x

I have to laugh because I've also found it fascinating that on your 35th birthday all the conception issues suddenly begin. I am 35 as well so I understand how you feel. And I also have those thoughts of 'what's wrong with me?'...Let's hang in there. It will happen!

I tried vitex, but found that it shortened my luteal phase so don't trust it.
The only research paper I found to support the use of vitex is a paper on fertility blend, which also contains L-arganine.
I'm afraid vitex will do more harm than good.
I take pre con vits, omega 3 and co enzyme.
Just have to keep healthy and keep trying. Will get Christmas and new year over before I see the doctor.
So that's 2 more cycles before I seek help.
Babydust to all!

Thats strange, vitex lengthened my lp from 7 days to 11, but I guess everyone is different in the way they react to herbs etc. Hope you get you BFP soon!xx

My RE suggested that I take no supplements except for prenatal vitamins.
