I need to Vent!

Hi Ladies,
I’m 22 years old. I have been trying to get pregnant for 4 years now. My BF has one child by another woman ( Which was 12 years ago). We did the One Year Wait as the doctor told us too. Than after one year of no luck. We go back & he send us to a infertility specialist. I go in for blood work. Everything comes back fine. My Iron was low. So am now taking Med.s to build my Iron up. Go back in for a full check up. Everything is fine. Had my HSG Test done. HSG everything is Clear :slight_smile: Doctor tells us to try for 3 to 6 more months. We are now on our last month. AF showed up about 7 days ago. So we get to try again :slight_smile: I feel sad, angry, mad inside. Cause every month is a let down (not getting pregnant). I feel like giving up on having a child. Plus SEX is like a JOB now. <-- Yes! I said it! I have a Reg. 28 day cycle. I use Clear Blue Easy Ovulation. Test with :slight_smile: & Answer: Daily Ovulation Test (Test Strips). I have gain some weight almost 10 pounds (Due to being under weight a few pounds). Also thinking about using pre-seed. Have any of you ladies used Pre-Seed & got pregnant? As forgot to added the doctor said We have [B]Un-explained Infertility. Any Info. would be helpfull.[/B]

Pre-seed never worked for us, but i have seen it work for alot of couples. im sorry its taken you so long. I know how you feel. Has your BF had his sperm tested? Sperm can change over time. Look at us, we have an 11 year old dd and when we started trying again we learned it was dh’s sperm. I wish you nothing but goodluck :cross:

I’m thinking of using Pre-Seed. I think I will give it a try. I have be reading about Pre-Seed. Alot of Couples say Pre-Seed works. And a few said it didn’t work. Plus I seen a few ladies posted it cause yest infec. I will have to think that for a few days. Cause I hate to have a yest infec. again. :eek:

My BF has not had a SA done yet. One reason cause the doctor said we should try for 3 to 6 more months. Than we would do the SA.

#2 Doctor wanted to check me out first. Due to my Sex History (Stds & PID 2 or 3 time from my Ex’s). So I have had Lab work done( Every is good. Just low Iron). Plus HSG Test done. And everything is clear.

But I will make shore my BF does get SA done next month.

Thanks for wishing my luck! I need alot luck! :cheer:

I used pre-seed also but never worked. As missing said, have you had your BF swimmers checked out. Also have they done a 7day after ovulation progesterone test on you? I would always get a + opk then find out after I never ovulated. Your body may gear up to ovulate but not release an egg, then they may put you on a medicine to help lime Clomid or Femera?
Good luck!

Hey april - just an FYI since we learned the hard way…make sure your doctor’s finanace department checks out your insurance coverage way in advance. That way you know what’s covered. I’m in MD and have BCBS and they cover NOTHING if you aren’t married. My (then) BF and I had been together for 6 years, TTC for 4 and we were told that we would have to pay everything out of pocket. :grr:

Who know that I would have to have a shot gun wedding TO GET PREGNANT???

I still don’t understand that - single people pay the same insurance premiums as married people :rolleyes:

Now that we are married, they still only pay 50% but that’s half that I don’t have to pay for so…

Wishing you the best of luck - hang in there.

I would request a SA on your BF, that could be the issue…I wouldn’t wait like the doctor said. If he won’t “order” if for your husband your regular OB might.

To FingersCrossed77 - I have checked out all insurance companys in my state nobody covers Infertility Treatment. So I have to pay out of pocket. I did find one insurance company (They wanted $800 per month/Plus I have to pay half of everything "They only pay for test to see what the under line of infertility is.). So I just pay out of pocket & write it off on my taxes.

To wmcgrath - I have talked to my doctor & BF. Doctor gave us the info. need for the test, Lab to go to. So that our next move… (1st of May)

Hopeful we will some good news!:cheer: Thanks for info. ladies.
Thanks for taken the time to read my post too… I was starting to feel alone. Now I don’t feel all alone!.. :grouphug:
