4th month trying to conceive - almost 39 years old

Postby MichelleLee08 » Tue Sep 20, 2016 8:37 am

Hi Ladies,

I hope I am in the right place. I have one son who is 2 1/2 years old and we have been trying to conceive our second. We tried for 5 months in a row at the end of last year and then I lost my job so we had to take a break for 4 months. Now it is month # 4 for us. I will be 39 years old next month and my husband just turned 42. It took us 3 months to conceive our first child. I know I was 35 at the time and that makes a difference. I do use ovulation kits, take Musinex and even starting using Pre-seed. I had blood drawn on day 3 of my period last month, so I will get the results this Monday when I see my OB. I did have this same blood test last year and all was good then. I do ovulate every month but I do have a small fibroid. Lastly, my husband never had his sperm checked but he is on clomid to improve his testosterone number. He used clomid the first time we conceived as well.

My question is... What can the Dr. do for me if he tells me my eggs are getting old. Is there some kind of medication to improve my egg quality? I read about women taking clomid. Would that help me?
Please let me know your thoughts and your stories.

Thanks so much,
Michelle C.

What would help improving ur egg quality is Q10 and that taken for at least 3months.
Clomid will only help you release a nice mature egg.
I doubt you will have any problems conceiving considering that you gotten pregnant pretty fast with ur first.
Good luck!

Remain positive. It is advised to consult a fertility specialist when women age 35 or older fail to get pregnant after six months of unprotected intercourse
