A couple with no physical barriers to conceiving only has a 15% chance each month of getting pregnant. Likely, you are just very normal! If you are less than 35 years old and have normal periods, then keep on trying for about a year before testing is indicated. If you are over 35, then 6 months of TTC before seeking help is routine.View Thread
Temperature is not always reliable. If you have normal, predictable menses you are most likely ovulating. Have sex regularly during mid cycle (day 10-->20) and you will not miss your "window". I find in my patients that using OPK (ovulation predictor kits) and other tools can be frustrating and exhausting.
Hey there. Not all fibroids are created equal. Many many many women have fibroids that have no effect on a pregnancy. It depends on the size and more importantly the location of the fibroids. If you want a worthwhile answer to your question, the doctor who has looked at your sonogram can better give you beneficial information.View Thread
It can take a little extra time for the cycle to reboot and the uterine lining to reset. You have to remember, the Mirena makes the lining super thin. I would just be patient a few more weeks. Keep on keeping on with the sex as there is certainly a fertile window in this timeframe at some point.
The "progesterone deficiency" phenomenon gets a lot more hype than is truly shown through evidenced based medical studies. A lot of women trying to conceive get on extra progesterone, etc. It has never been proven (outside the realm of say, IVF) to be of importance. The low progesterone phenomenon also gets a lot of blame for miscarriage, when in reality it may not be the reason.
I hope that you have had an entire infertility evaluation.... including HSG (an x-ray to look at your uterus and tubes), a semen analysis, and labs to look at your ovarian reserve. If not, you need to get these. If so and still not pregnancy after 4 months of clomid.... it is time to see a reproductive endocrinologist (REI) doctor for more aggressive management of your infertility.View Thread
I am not aware of haploidization as a commonly used, scientifically perfected strategy to conceive.
On the other hand, I take care of MANY lesbian couples. Almost all of them conceive using intrauterine insemination with donor sperm. If both woman in the couple are suitable carriers of a pregnancy, what they do is purchase enough of the sperm up front for multiple pregnancy attempts. One of the partners will conceive and deliver the first time and then the other partner will try the next time. That way both can experience childbearing and both have a child with their genetic makeup. The siblings will be genetically related as well (via the sperm donor).
There are certainly other ways to do this, but this is what my patients have done and seem very happy with the process.View Thread
Your "period" in September may not have been a true hormonally induced period. It may have just been what it was... bleeding. So there is a chance that you have not yet started ovulating yet. (This is OK... it is not atypical to take a few months to start ovulating off of Depo Provera.)
I would just see how things play out for a couple of more months. If you do not become regular, you can certainly see your OBGYN.View Thread
