Hey,
I can't imagine how 4 years feels. I am going on almost 20 tracked cycles (temping, OPKs, and TTWing). I am ready to quit but I can't bring myself to do it. Even if we hardly try, I am still counting down every day till AF and it breaks my heart.
I want to scream at how much it sucks!

What all have you been trying or have changed? Have you read the Infertility Cure or Inconceiveable?
Me (sharon): 37 the worst- high FSH
DH (marc): 39 lots of sperm but low volume

TTC #1 for 21 cycles
FSH 19.9, everything else fine
-doing acupuncture weekly since July 2011
-Taking powdered wheatgrass, 50mg B-6, a mega multi-vitamin and fish oil (along with some TCM herbs).
-Also cut back on caffeine, sugar, alcohol, and white flour. Pretty much my entire diet before I started this.

7/2011 Clomid and lots of bding- BFN
11/11/11 IUI with Clomid #1- BFN super sad.
11/29/11 IUI with Clomid #2- BFN not fair!
12/2011- natural cycle- BFN very frustrated and angry.

:( Im sorry I know just how you feel. I am approaching 6 years in January. I never thought I would still be ttc #1 at this point. I thought I would be working on number 3 at least. I wish I had so advice but all I can offer up is you are not alone and I though how you are feeling. :hugs:
