I'm very new to posting but I've pretty much stalked every site available but never felt the urge to share until now. I've been married for over a year and a half (I'm 31 and so is my DH)and have been TTC #1 since last March but have had no success. I've read every site multiple times, taken Vitamins/Folic Acid, used Preseed, elevated my hips, and done yoga but nothing has worked. I've watched others who started trying after me fall pregnant after three months or so. I went to see a fertility specialist in October 2011 and was put on Clomid 100 mgs for three months. I ovulate on my own but I tend to ovulate early in my cycle (day 7 or 8 if allowed to do so on my own) so the doctor felt that clomid might help delay that a day or so, which it did but I failed to fall pregnant. I didn't want to wait a year to go since the husband and I hadn't done anything to prevent pregnancy for three years and never had one accident so we decided to make the appointment. Clomid thinned out my lining and make my CM non-exsistant so this past month I was switched to femara. I had an HSG Test done on day four of my current cycle and my tubes are all clear. The femara produced five follicles (three on the left and two on the right) and it looked as if four might have been released. I'm on day six of my TTW and I felt something on my right side but I refuse to get my hopes up. I've felt twinges before and I found out it was just the clomid and not implantation. It's really frustrating because I can't read any signs my body might be telling me due to the medication. I'm hoping for success but prepared for another big fat disappointment. I just refuse to test until the day my period is due. I don't want another few days of questioning and hoping just to find out AF was on her way. I just feel so defective because it looks like I'll be lumped into the "unexplained infertility" category and I can't stand not knowing. If I can't get pregnant just tell me so and don't make me go thru this emotional roller coaster each and every month. It's really getting to be too much to take. It's hard to be around expecting mothers and I have to prepare myself for two baby showers coming up in the next three months.View Thread
