TTC after 35

Intro ... 38 TTC ... (BFP / loss / divorce)


A quick brief history about me ☺

BFP 01/2013 and then loss early on 02/2013

I got the BFP after two courses of chlomid. 

After the loss I tossed my husband out and started divorce proceedings. Sounds harsh but was something that needed to happen.

Currently with a better man and TTC.

I have avoided going to the gynae for the past three years and went in mid-Feb.  She wanted to put me straight away on chlomid.  I asked for a chance to go natural and have been given three months, given my age, loss and history of deep vein thrombosis.

At least I have been keeping track of my cycles but don't chart temp etc.

Feeling the pressure and somewhat alone.  Looking forward to being among like minded people and any advice available

    If you decide to try medication, I recommend seeing if your insurance covers a RE, as opposed to a gyno.  Gynos know very little about fertility medication, compared to the knowledge that REs have. 

    And if you're going to try medication, you want the medication to be the stuff that's most likely to work, and you want the monitoring to keep it safe. 

    Unfortunately, for a lot of us, insurance doesn't provide the same sort of coverage for an RE, but it's worth checking out.

    These forums have been incredibly helpful for me.  I hope you find support here as well.

    Thanks all!

    Just to clarify, I am in South Africa. So our medical system is slightly different.  The Dr I am seeing is a obstetrician gynae, and by our system she is who I should be seeing. Luckily I am on a good private medical insurance.

    And looking forward to the support as I don't want to go down the dark neurotic road that is ttc. I am in a good space this time round and want to stay there.
