Wow. This board sure has died in the last few years! I was on this board last almost 3 years ago. My then-husband and I were trying for two years with no success. We never had success, we ended up getting a divorce- only slightly to do with this, mostly to do with other bigger problems. Now three years later, and over 5 years off BCP, my current SO has dropped the bomb on me that he wants children. He knows only very little about my reproductive challenges. He knows I "can't get pregnant" as I put it to him when we got together and he told me he never wanted children (this was almost 3 years ago) so I came straight to this board because I know we will not be having any success any time soon. Granted, I have been purposely not having sex with him during my fertile times (after two years of charting, it just became second nature!!) so maybe we will get lucky or whatever but I seriously doubt it. I tried to have a talk with him about everything Ive gone through so far but all my emotions came back and we dropped it for the time being. He has said that it wouldn't kill him to not have children and that while he really wants them he would stay with me no matter what but I am feeling guilty like I will not be giving him the family he wants and deserves. It is definitely something to do with me. My ex had a "perfect" SA. I have had HSG, bloodwork, and more with no word on why. Everything seems "normal". I get Yeast Infections regularly with Bacterial vaginosis as well. I havent had one in about six months since getting treated and changing my diet completely so maybe with no problems on that front I might have a better chance? Anyway, for now, we aren't trying any more than just having sex whenever. Now is not really the best time anyway but let me tell you, after actively TTC for two years when it was the "right time" I really don't care if it is the "right time" or "best time" or not. I would take a BFP at any time! Especially looking around seeing all these losers getting knocked up left and right. Yes, five years after starting to TTC I STILL get a twinge of disgust every time an "undeserving" pg happens. Hoping maybe there are some of you out there lurking who might post a little more? This used to be such a tight-knit little group it is both sad (that no one really seems to be talking on here anymore) and happy (that the "old gals" aren't here and have moved on up!). Well good luck all you TTCers out there!View Thread
Female fertility supplements are a joke if you have real problems. Dont listen to that person they are just trolling and advertising their products. Her bleeding so much as described is a major problem and if your doctor is disregarding it you NEED to get another doctor ASAP! Unless she is just frustrated and doesnt want to try and is lying about bleeding so you dont want to have sex? She should be more concerned. What have the Doctors said about it? What is the diagnosis?View Thread
Go to a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE). Get a referral from your OB. OB/GYN are only good for a little bit. There are major problems it could be that they just arent trained in. Do you have insurance? After 4 years you should have conceived naturally if you were going to. You probably need treatments. They could range from just taking some medication to produce more eggs, to intrauterine insemination, to In-vitro fertilization. You need to see a specialist if you are serious about this though. OB?GYN can only get you so far and that isnt very far at all. Have you had bloodwork specifically related to TTC yet? HSG? Anything?View Thread
I have the same problem. I get yeast infections ALL THE TIME. I finally got cleared up and stopped drinking soda completely, started eating fresh raw garlic- it has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, have cut the amount of sugar way down in the rest of my diet and have been taking a probiotic. So far, have been YI free for six months... I absolutely contribute this to my change in diet/supplements. I was getting them every single month for about five years. While I am sure I will get another at some point this has been the best six months of my vaginas life!! Also, during the times of the month where you aren't actually TTC but still having sex have him pull out because for some women that can contribute as well. Not that this answers your question on the TTC part but this may help for the YI. Are you getting BV with your YIs? I was getting that every time as well (bacterial vaginosis) and that has also gone away. I recently read a couple studies (for a Sexuality course in college) that said that women who get BV frequently have unexplained Infertility and that in women who had been trying for over a year (or more in dif studies but you get the picture!) who had BV recurring during that time once they got it treated over half in this one study were pregnant within 6 months. So they are thinking that BV could cause unexplained infertility which makes me wonder about YI too! Good luck.View Thread
