unexplained infertility

Hi all,
I'm 27 and been trying to get preggers since I was about 21. I got married quite young at the age of 19. Since then I've had one stillbirth (2009) and no luck since. I tried IVF in sept 2013 and still unsuccessful. I've tried dieting, losing weight, keeping ovulation diaries etc and still no luck; also it is not a male factor.
Anyone else in a similar situation, I'd really like some advice.  I've been to sooooo many doctors & specialists and they tell me it will happen when the time is right but honestly, I'm getting quite fed up already.

I know that it is frustrating when its unexplained.  For me they think my issues were a result of a miscarriage I had that I should have had a D&C for but they lost my referral.   The damage was done by the time I finally saw the drs. All i can tell you is to hang in there.  the end results with the Drs is fantastic.  My first little one is now 2 and #2 is on the way.

Its difficult to be hopeful but I'm ever and always hoping that it will happen soon enough.

Have you had a hysterosalpingogram done? Ive been waiting to have one done because insurance wont cover it and it's around $800... they inject dye into your uterus and it will tell them if your fallopian tubes are scarred or if you have anything like a blockage.

and when you do the hystopictogram  take an advil first.   As much as they say it isn't painful they LIE! I was told its just like getting a pap done... I called BS on that one.
