Fingers Crossed TTC 1.1 | Need Some Advice Please

I've been TTC for a few years now and it's gotten to a point where i'm so frustrated that I don't know where else to turn. My husband and I have been to several doctors, we've gotten several tests done and all have indicated that there is nothing wrong. 

So why can't we get a BFP?!??

Everyone around us is getting pregnant and here we are with nothing wrong and not being able to... I can't take the frustration anymore. 

Has this happened to you? Have you been in a similar situation? What did you do? 

Please help!

Hi, I thought I might share my story with you. Maybe it will help. My husband and I have been trying for almost 3 years and I recently found out that I have hypothyroidism. Now, I had tests done before that showed my thyroid was in perfect working order, but I still exhibited several symptoms. Extream tiredness ( I could fall asleep just about anytime and anywhere ), Lack of hair at the ends of my eyebrows that gave me the appearance of hash marks for brows, foggy thoughts, and anovulatory periods, but only as it progressed and became worse. I had other symptoms, but I'll stop there. Suddenly, I began bleeding in the middle of my cycles and then one day it wouldn't stop and I had bleeding around the clock. The more I was on my feet the worse it got. They finally deduced it was my thyroid after having another test done two and a half years after the first one. The first one was perfect. The next one was off by only a couple of points. My Dr. reordered it only fasting bloodwork this time and it showed up like a red flag. I was apparently supplementing it enough that it wouldn't show up on my tests enough to look like a problem. All this to say that I was given meds to jump start my cycles again and end the bleeding as well as thyroid medication and about that time I started charting my Basel Body Temperature. It has helped me so much! I can see by my temp that I indeed did, according to the book and symptoms, ovulate! You might try Basel Body charting. It's easy and effective and might help you to know when exactly you are ovulating so you can get pregnant! I recommend the book called Taking Charge of Your Fertility 20th Anniversary Edition. It will explain everything you need to know! I understand how each month can be such a letdown and a dream crusher. Please know that you are amongst friends who understand. Try doing something relaxing and if I could be allowed to offer you some advice it would be, don't forget to make love just because you want to and no other reason, so it stays fun. If you don't want my advice please just scroll past it. Also, I'm by no means saying that you have thyroid troubles, but you may want to have some different, more in-depth, thyroid tests done if you show any symptoms because most Dr. just run a basic thyroid test and can miss a thyroid problem. Charting can also let you know if your thyroid is having trouble because your temp can be too high or too low. It's all in the book. If you're in the clear though I wouldn't worry about it. Prayers and Babydust to you honey!
