Hi and welcome. There is always the possibility of pregnancy while you are still menstruating but it is less and less likely to conceive as we get older and older without some type of intervention. If you really would like a baby, at least talk to your doctor. The other issue with the age is the quality of the egg. Unfortunately, this also decreases as we get older. This is why things like downs and such are more likely as you get older. This isn't to discourage you but rather to encourage you to talk to your doctor. If you have any type of budget in mind for conceiving, that helps to know. Even testing such as the dye test has been known to bump fertility in and of itself. But you have to know what the problem is in order to fix it. Simple blood work could be a start. Is it possible to talk to your doctor? Do you have any other children?
That's good. It's definitely much harder when we are older. I don't think two days of heavy bleeding with clots is abnormal, how long is your period overall and how many days is your cycle typically? Have you ever tried temp taking and charting it?
Hi, honey, I'm sorry you're facing this. Still here are a couple of things to remember. Ovulation is not an exact science! It can occur earlier, later or not at all in any given cycle. Even normally fertile women have the occasional anovulatory period. Do not go down the route of timed intercourse. It can do more harm than good within a relationship. Make love when you both feel like it and not just when you think it's ovulation time. Position is immaterial. No position is shown to increase conception over another! Do not use temp charting or OPK's at all in the event that your cycle is consistently irregular. A normal cycle is a cycle length of between 21 and 35 days. (Or if there is less than 4 days of variation from month to month.)
If periods are consistently irregular and or painful in nature - get this checked out with your dr. If the nature of your periods changes over time - get this investigated too. Finally, if you have been ttc for a year without success you should seek medical help. Stay calm, hun, try to make some natural improvements to the ttc. At least they won't do any harm. Take care xx
