Hi, thank you for your wishes. Today i'll have the test. I almost have no hope and i'm 99% sure that my period will start. I will let you know.
Another failure. Thank you for your support. I don't know what to do next. I'm so tired.
I'm really sorry to hear you've been through so many failed cycles. Have these all been with the same doctor? If so, I suggest trying someone new -they all have slightly different protocols/philosophies so someone else might be more successful for you. Also be sure to look into their success rates for various age groups - you might be surprised at what you find. Best of luck to you.
I am so sorry for the struggles you are having. I can certainly empathize. I am 39 and have been TTC for over 2 years now. I've had 3 m/cs over the course of 2009-2010, and have not had a positive pregnancy test since my last m/c in September 2010. Although I have not gone through an IVF cycle, I did go through a number of cycles of fertility drugs (clomid, femara, follistim, ovidrel) and IUI - all failures. So, I understand the monthly devastation and disappointment.
After the last failed IUI in February of this year, I was heartbroken and exhausted, and decided I'd had it with drugs, tests, RE appts and "bad news" phone calls, and feeling awful physically and emotionally all the time. I am now committed to getting my BFP naturally or not at all. For the past 5 months I have embarked on a regimen of acupunture, Chinese herbs, vitamins, diet changes, using only natural paraben-free products, daily exercise, yoga, meditation and visualization. I've gotten every book I can on TTC naturally in your late 30s-40s. Although I haven't gotten my BFP (yet!), I have never felt so healthy, energized and positive.
Whatever path you decide to choose, I wish you all the luck in the world in achieving motherhood.
Thank you for your kind wishes. I hope God will give babies to all of us who want to be a mother one day. I'm so frustrated, sorry, tired, but most of all angry.
This is our third doctor, don't know how many doctors we have seen until now. In our case, IVF is our only option. They have little differences, but the medicine and the procedures are similar. The worst part is they don't know why. They have no explanation.
Anyway, life goes on, this will pass. And everything happens for a reason, at least i still try to believe this. All the best wishes for you.
