Has anyone ever had trouble conceiving and become frustrated? Have you ever just totally wanted to give up because no matter how many times you try, your period just keeps coming? Have you ever actually given up because of this?

Yes I had a very hard time getting pregnant and it was very frustrating. Waiting every month hopin not to see that little bit of red starting. I would just cry and then go on. I went to the doctor and he put me on chlomid. I thought it made youget pregnant. Not sure how. So the first month my period didnt come and I took a home test. It said I was pregnant. Yeah, Then I started to bleed quite heavy. I went to the emergence rood to be told it was my period. The feelings I felt, aaaaaanger, diapointment, embaressed. Oh it was terrible. I then found out chlomid helped your hormones work better so you wer more lkely to get pregnant. I followed everything to the letter again and I did conceive my son. He is 18 now. We wont talk about the teen years. I did not have a problem conceiving after that. I did have a problem keeping my babies. I lost the next one. Then I had my daughter. Then I had a tubal pregnancy and two more miscarrages. I thank God fr my two. Good luck. I will say a prayer for you. Dont give up.

My daughter has just started taking chlomid after she found out she wasn't ovulating. So far, it hasn't helped. How long were you on the chlomid before you conceived? Can you tell me what you mean by "following everything to the letter"? I want to help my daughter get through this. Any comments you have will help, Thanks.

When you are on chlomid you take them for so many days. The doctor told us not to have relations during that time so that his count would build up. I didnt drink caffeine of any kind, and i would keep laying after for about twenty minutes with my hips raised. It took me just two months. The chlomid gave me terrible pms. I was warned of that. Wvery two months they raise the dose but it shouldnt make the pms worse. I was always trying to fidn little tricks. Now in the teen years I am not sure why.

paisleylass - thanks for taking time to help me. I'll pass along the information to my daughter. I want to keep her spirits up and maybe these words will help. Thanks so much for caring about someone you don't even know. I appreciate this website as well, because mylotters do care for each other, I'm glad you're one of the mylotters who takes extra time to participate and help others.

A friend of mine is desperate to get pregnant. She is married for two years already. She and her husband tried everything but to no avail. I think that they have to really give their selves a break. Too much wanting will kill the possibility of having one. Try to breath more and let positive energy come back so that your body can adopt and stimulate the whole idea of having a baby. It's just the way of thinking. Do the reverse techniques,it might help.

Hi. My daughter has tried everything, reverse techniques, all of it and she still can't get pregnant. She's tried to allow the positive energy to return but she's waited so long, the depression comes back.

Yes I am. I have been trying for 1 year now. I broke in tears today August 14, 2008, to see my result was BFN. It is very frustrating. I can barely breath to see the negative result. I can not function, angry, mad, you name it. I had it all. I am 34 and failed so many times. I just started bbt charting to see if it helps. also i bought an LH/ OPK to monitor my ovulation. I will keep u update. goodluck!
