TTC Advice and Tips

40 AND OVER

I have three kids already that I conceived within 1-2 months. I am 40 years old and my youngest is 11 but she was 10 at the time I started ttc. After a few months went by and nothing was happening I just figured it was either my age or my bf (he has no kids). Couple of months later, (total of 5) is when I scheduled an appt. to see and RE just to make sure nothing was wrong with me. And what do you know, I had an hsg and both my tubes were blocked. I was in total shock!!! She scheduled me a lap/dye and hysteroscopy the next month and was able to unblock both my tubes. Now I am on dpo 4 the first cycle after my lap and just waiting to see if I conceived this time. So my advice is to all the women 40 and above, do not waste time seeing a doctor even if you already have children cause you never know. I would have never in a million years believed my tubes were blocked and from the grace of God they are not anymore but I wish I had scheduled my appointment from the minute I decided to ttc.
