Hi everyone,

  I am new to this site and want to find support and share my story. I am 31 and am a mother of a 3 year old. I have been trying for about 2 years to conceive number 2. The first time I used ovulation kit predictors it worked an I got pregnant but when I went to the doctors they couldn't find the heartbeat. They waited a week and then the sac was loosing its shape so they sent me for a d n c. Since then I have been trying during ovulation and nothing. I am even seeing a fertility specialist who sees good lining , follicles an my blood says I'm surging. She even checks me after to see if I did ovulate and says I am. The only things that have changed in my cycle are I ovulate late like day 20 to as late as day 30.. My luteal phase is short and sometimes I spot before my period comes. I also had one high level of FSH at 10.7 but then the doc checked my 3 day FSH and it was fine. 

I just tried progesterone and it didn’t work. I’m so heartbroken. My little one asks for a sibling everyday. I can’t take school drop off where I have the only child.
My doctor mentioned ivf but I also suffer from health anxiety and I’m not sure if I can handle taking all the meds and injections. I never thought this would be so hard. I just feel so depressed that I can give my child a brother or a sister. I can’t understand how I got pregnant so fast with the miscarriage and now nothing .

OMG, I hope you’ve had you baby#2 by this time. So sad I’ve seen this post only now…Feel really sorry I failed to support you earlier. Let me write those lines saying I’m hoping so much you’ve been happy with your little ones so far. Unfortunately I’m not new to a MC. I know it’s tough and is hard to survive. And this feeling comes on and off from time to time always. Just look what you’re having now. Be happy now and do not look back anyway. Hope this message will heat you with my warm virtual hugs saying I’m hoping for you…

Many women who have trouble getting pregnant are prescribed clomiphene citrate, an oral fertility drug that induces ovulation. About 35 percent of women who take clomiphene citrate become pregnant over the course of treatment (usually three to six cycles). When fertility drugs to cause ovulation or increase egg production are combined with IUI, the pregnancy rate is between 10 and 20 percent per treatment cycle. Making certain lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, limiting alcohol and caffeine, improving your diet, and losing weight if you need to can go a long way toward improving your odds of getting pregnant. (A dad-to-be’s diet matters too.) But your success depends largely on the severity of your fertility problem, your age, and your health history. Women older than 40 generally have a harder time getting pregnant than younger women. Meanwhile, don’t gloss over the emotional stress involved. Find a willing friend, support group, or professional to talk to before, during, and after your treatment. Keep in mind that success rates are national averages based on the total number of treatment cycles and don’t take into account the number of attempts made with each method. Your doctor may suggest that you try something else after three to six tries with any treatment because some experts believe that what hasn’t worked by your third round is less likely to work at all.

I’m not sure 3 rounds ivf is often enough for moving onto donor eggs. I’ve read a lot women have 5-7 shots then loose hope and turn to donor eggs. I personally passed 2 shots with oe. Then was told oe were not going to work at all so we went on with de overseas (because of more affordable prices.) And did right. All cases are different, one doc said: ''It’s worth to continue trying ivf unless you have enough money:no_mouth: and healthy enough body…Strange enough but really makes sence.
