I'm just wondering if there any ladies out there that have been trying for more then the normal year or even 2? I just feel sometimes like its so hard to relate since we've been ttc for 6 years!! =/ and I feel more alone then ever with this.

What I would give to only be trying for 2 years! It seems like so long ago and a much easier/hopeful time! We've been at it 3.5 years which in comparison to some of you ladies doesn't seem so bad... I wish it got easier. After awhile the women you started off infertile with and related to originally are the ones you see coming back around trying for their 2nd. It's painful, devastating, and very much lonely. We need to stay in touch with each other to keep that from happening! :D

I've been trying for over two years. It may be not as long as some others but it's still tough. Especially when you're clock is ticking.

It'll be four years for us in December....for the first three years, I was considered "unexplained" infertility, so that made me even more anxious. I have some comfort knowing that I have a good doctor who has worked hard to find a diagnosis for us and is aggressive with our treatments, but it still doesn't make it any easier. Hugs to all you ladies that have been trying multiple years. It's always hard seeing women around you getting pregnant after several months of trying, but it brings me so much joy to hear the success story of someone who has tried for multiple years and finally gets their BFP. Hope that we all have a story like that soon!!
