Two months after my husband and I were married we got pregnant. I was on BC and we were using condoms. The pregnancy was successful and I gave birth in Aug 08. About 8 months later we started trying again. It has now been over 4 years with no success. Not even a failed pregnancy.
My Ob/Gyn had me have the HSG test and the blood test to check hormones, everything is fine. My husband had a sperm analysis done and everything is fine with him as well.
After giving birth I had retained placenta which passed on its own a month later (the dr didn't know). I was checked to make sure there wasn't any more placenta in my uterus. And that test came back fine. I also had postpartum hemorrhage (PPH).
Since giving birth in 08 I get frequent yeast infections. at least every other month - if not every month. I also at times have a greenish discharge.
Could the retained placenta episode be causing the yeast infections? Could this be the reason why we are not conceiving?
