Sooner or later?

Postby Ready? » Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:32 pm

Hi,
New to TTC, not actually TTC. I'm close to 35 and would like to start, but just started a new job. FMLA wouldn't start until I've been there a year. Wondering if I should wait, considering my age. Never TTC and don't have any kds, yet.

Honestly, given your age I would not wait. After 6 months of trying, find an RE if you haven't had any luck. The sad fact though is that from 35 on it is a steep drop off in our fertility.
Me (31) - Homozygous MTHFR A1298C, Endometriosis, Left Fallopian Tube removed
DH (33) - Normal
Married - 09/09/09

First ever :bfp: 5/6/13
5-17-13 - D&C and ectopic pregnancy removal at 5w5d. Lost left fallopian tube. Right ovarian cyst removed.

Aug 2013 - 1st clomid cycle (50mg CD3-7). 5 follies, missed ovulation, timed intercourse. BFN
Nov 2013 - Jan 2014 - Follicles all on the left.

Thanks for the advice. I really want to start, but want to have job security, as we'll need my job... God luck with your TTC.
