Trouble TTC

Because There Seems to Be a Lot of New People....

I've noticed a lot of new ladies on the board recently, so if you're swinging by, you'll likely find this link to be helpful: http://bit.ly/118egbw - It should answer a lot of common questions, plus provide some helpful information. Welcome, although sorry for whatever circumstances bring you here!

 This board is for ladies that have been TTC for more than a year, or have an infertility diagnosis. While we can all relate to the anxiety and frustration of TTC anywhere in the process, if you've not been trying a year or undergoing treatments, you may have better luck on the Trying to Get Pregnant board.  

 If you are lurking, or  haven't yet introduced yourself, please take a minute to tell us who you are! How long have you been TTC?  What is your diagnosis?  Are you undergoing treatment? Any other  fun facts? Regs, feel free to introduce yourselves too, so the new ladies can get to know you all as well. 

We hope that you'll find this to be a supportive and informative community. GL to you!

Re: Because There Seems to Be a Lot of New People....

  • Sorry the link isn't clicky! Sad Not sure what happened.

    Getting the ball rolling.....

    I'm GG. My DH and I are both 32 and have been TTC since February 2011. Unfortunately, our diagnosis is Unexplained Infertility.  We've completed 2 medicated cycles w/Clomid, 4 IUI's and are now in the process of IVF through a clinical study. As for fun facts....I used to have a cake baking/decorating business with my sister until I moved out of state, and I have volunteered with animal rescues for several years.Smile

  • Cool, GG ::mobile smiley::

    Hi! My name is Cici, I came off BCPs in Sept 2011 and have actively been TTC since March 2012. We were diagnosed with unexplained IF and an arcuate uterus. I'm currently in my third treatment cycle with the RE, and am planning to do a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy in the next cycle. I'm a runner, music teacher, dog lover, and love trying new things. IF is probably the only exception to that, lol

    I'm not a very interesting person. I can touch my tongue to my nose? Yeah. That's pretty much the only interesting thing about me. haha

  • Great idea, GG!

    I'm Sun.  We've been trying since June 2012, starting seeing an RE in June 2013.  We recently finished our tests (my HSG was clear and his SA was great).  This cycle we did an unmedicated IUI, but unfortunately it looks like my period will be here any day.  Next cycle we'll move onto Clomid, trigger and IUI.  

    I teach 5th grade math, love what I do, and love summer even more Smile

    Hi, I'm rox. I'm turning 32 next month, H is 39, and we've been married for 4 years and TTC since Sept 2011, although I went off of BC in May 2011. Our diagnosis is unexplained, I did have a small uterine fibroid removed but that doesn't seem to have made any difference. I'm on my second IUI after some timed intercourse cycles, and if this doesn't work I'm having a laparoscopy next cycle to check for endometriosis. H and I have 2 dogs and we both love to travel, especially to beaches where we can snorkel.

    Welcome to the newbies, hope you aren't here long!

  • Hi ladies, I'm Chicken and sadly, I can't touch my tongue to my nose Stick out tongue

    I'm 31, Hubs is 33 and we've been TTC since June of last year. I have insulin-resistant PCOS and do not ovulate. I'm currently in my 3rd medicated cycle with Clomid + TI and have not had a response to the meds yet.  If I don't respond again we will likely switch to Femara. 

    Also, my hubby has chronic (often debilitating) back pain so that makes things pretty interesting with all the humping that goes on around here.



    Diary of a Little Chicken (My Blog about Infertility, Pregnancy & Loss)

    TTC our first take-home baby since June 2012 with Anovulation and PCOS

    Rx: Metformin, 1500mg || Tx:  No response to ovulation-inducing meds

  • Great idea GG!  

    Hi all, I'm Wolfette.  DH and I have been TTC #1 since November 2011 with one C/P in March 2012.  We have been seeing our RE since January.  During testing it was discovered that I have a unicornuate uterus (UU).  Only the left half of my uterus and fallopian tube developed, though I do have both ovaries.  I also only have my left kidney, a common occurrence with UUs.  There were also problems with my prolactin levels (now fixed) and the lining of my uterus being too thick.  Had an endometrial biopsy last Monday and just waiting for the results.  If everything looks good we should be able to move forward with treatments.

    Fun facts: DH and I have three adorable cats and love to go wine tasting.

  • Love this thread! Thanks, GG. 

     I'm Kristina. I'm 31 and DH is 39. We have been TTC since November 2011. I have PCOS, stage 3 endo, and adenomyosis. Now after two "out of phase biopsies" they also suspect a luteal phase defect. DH has "excellent" SA results so at least there's that.  I had a lap and did 6 months of Lupron to treat the endo/adeno that was causing a blocked tube. Am waiting on AF to start my next clomid cycle. If that doesn't work we are on to injects.

     I have two fur babies.....a basset hound named flash and a French bulldog named Lola. I like to knit, play golf, and shake my tail at a good zumba class.

     Welcome to all the newbies.

  • Hello! Gina here!  Thanks for the thread b/c I feel like I kind of wadded onto here...didn't dive in right away, but after a brief intro I wasn't regular enough to stay up-to-date with everyone.  Been TTC seriously since Jan'12 although we were halfway trying (no BC) since May '09.  No clear diagnosis - I have endo (which runs in the family quite a bit), and DH seems to be all good.

    I'm technically scheduled for 2nd IUI at the end of this month, but I think we'll switch to TI, b/c my RE didn't want to do a medicated cycle.  This would be our second IUI, so I'd rather wait until next month (when I'm not traveling for work as much) and get more bang for our buck.

    Me 32, H 37 -- TTC since Jan'12 
    Low AMH (0.78); SA w/ low motility
    Lap and Hysteroscopy Apr'13 - stage 3 endo removed
    IUI's 1-3 = BFN, IVF converted to IUI 4/13 = BFN
    IVF 1.2: 8R 6M 4F -- 2 blastocysts frozen, ET ~8/14

    Cool idea :) Welcome to all the newbies. Hopefully you'll find the answers and support here you seek.

    Hi everyone, I'm Cindal. I'm 26 and DH is 34. We've been ttc since March 2012. In March of this year DH was dx'd with diabetes after an abysmal SA, low all the way across the board, except the ph being high. The drs told us IVF with ICSI was our only feasible option with those numbers. We think we've got the diabetes undercontrol are currently anxiously awaiting the end of the month for his repeat SA. We're hoping to see a massive improvement in which case we'll try naturally for another 3 months or enough of an improvement to try a couple of IUI's. If there's no improvement, we'll probably begin saving for adoption. Fun Facts: I'm the author of a couple of fantasy novels and have a very small photography biz.

  • Hi- I've been around a bit but for the newbies:

    I'm HCTS. H and I are 35. We're in our 29th cycle TTC, dealing with unexplained. We did 5 medicated cycles with a mix of TI and IUI. We're about to see a new RE after taking 6 cycles off for sanity and giving acupuncture a try. I have a feeling IVF may be our next step.

    Fun fact:  I knit up a storm and specialize in intarsia. I have even designed a few of my own patterns.

     



  • Hi there everyone! I'm 32 and my hubby turned the big 4-0 this year. We just celebrated our 2 year anniversary and have been TTC for about 16 months. The official diagnosis is unexplained infertility. This is our first treatment cycle: Clomid and TI. Aside from baby-making, my hobbies include reading, baking, and hiking with my dog.

  • Hi, I'm a lurker thinking of coming out of hiding. I haven't posted here on this board since last year. 

     DH and I are both 32. I was diagnosed with PCOS with insulin resistance and hypothyroidism over 10 years ago now. We haven't gone through testing even though we started our TTC journey in 2011. Last year we were going to start testing, mainly a SA, but never did. We took a long break instead. I decided to intro again because the idea of TTC has come back up, but it's still early in our discussions. I thought it would be nice to have support from women who have been there. I'm currently on the pill and metformin. I'm also back on meds that are dangerous for TTC so that's another part of the discussion we've got to figure out. 

    This decision is a complicated one for us. Do I try to get off of my meds again, get off BC, and full on try again? Has anyone else ever taken a long break and decided to try again? Do we have to wait another year before seeking out medical help? 

    TTC #1 since January 2011 DX PCOS and hypothyroid
