I am new to this community and just wanted to give a little introduction, and also get some advice. My husband and I have been TTC for over 2 years now. I have done 6 cycles of clomid,and was not successful. I recently started seeing a reproductive endocrinologist, and just recently started femara. My husband’s testing has come back normal, and luckily all of my bloodwork has been fine (besides possible PCOS) and I am now getting ready to start all of the imaging. Praying that I am successful with the femara. Its been a long, rough journey so far. Just hoping things will start to go up.
Since this whole process started, things with me have not been the same. I have sunk into a depression that I can’t seem to get out of. I just don’t feel like myself anymore. I am getting help medically with all of this, but it does not seem to be getting any better. My employer has offered for me to take some personal time off, and I am going to be going on FMLA. I will still be working over 30+ hours a week, but they will be giving me more time to focus on myself and to go to doctors appointments as needed. Coping with the fact that I am the only one in my family with fertility issues is really hard for me. I was just wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else, and if so some of the ways you deal with it. I have a great support system behind me, but it doesn’t seem like anything I am doing has helped. I am open for any advice that anyone has. Thanks so much in advance!
