My husband and I have been ttc for 6 mo. now, with zero luck, while every single woman around me has gotten pregnant while not trying or not wanting to become pregnant. It's excruciating for us. Our problem is that we keep getting told that no one will run tests on either of us until we have been trying a year. Not even a semen analysis. The only thing a doctor has done was check my progesterone levels to see that I do ovulate. I really didn't want to get obsessed with trying, but have OPK's or BBT methods worked for anyone?? My cycle has been irregular my whole life, and I was on the pill from 14-22 years old. Ever since I've been off (about 7 mo) my cycles are still irregular. So we just have sex every 36 hours like the doctor said and I put a pillow up under me for 20 min. afterward. Any other advice? Have those other methods worked for anyone?View Thread
I know EXACTLY how that feels. I am a military spouse and I am literally the only one out of my husband's class that is not currently pregnant or with a newborn. We have been TTC for 6 mo. with no luck, and the women who are getting pregnant don't want kids or drink a TON, and I still cry every single time someone tells me their news. We want one so badly and nothing works. We make love religiously using the "36-hour" rule so I don't see how we're missing it. I cry every month when my period comes too. Don't feel alone! And we have no kids, so this is really scary to think we may never have a child of our own.View Thread
