TTC after 35
Options

Looking to join your group

Hi ladies,

I am a 36 y/o recently married professional with multiple chronic medical conditions which negatively impact my ability to conceive.  I miscarried in 2002 during my first marriage, have hyperprolactinemia, endometriosis, and Behcet's disease.  For good news, I am taking bromocriptine which has kept my prolactin level normal and recently had an HSG which showed that both of my tubes are open.  Now that my prolactin level is normal, I was anticipating that I would ovulate regularly, but my cycles are still long (32 days approx) and this last cycle was the first that I used an OPK and it never detected a surge.  I don't know if perhaps I just didn't ovulate or what??

Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and am hopeful that this will be a mutually supportive forum!  Best wishes to everyone!

    Hi Georgia from one NP to another!  I'm a Family Nurse Practitioner, but have worked solely in Internal Medicine for the past 10 years.  Are you inpatient or outpatient? 

     

    This TTC thing is nerve-racking, isn't it?

    KZ: I've been in outpatient peds for about 10 years. I work 2 days a week and absolutely love it! I taught as an adjunct for a while before I had my daughter and enjoyed that as well. What about you?

    Welcome to the board!  I also a newlywed. Congrats on your marriage. Good luck on your journey. How often are you testing with the OPK?  My surge seems to be very short so I have to test a few times a day to catch it. I'd completely miss it if I only tested once per day.

    TTC #1 since 8/1/10; Me:41 and BRCA1+, DH:46
    DOR (FSH 24.3)/ terrible egg quality ; homozygous MTHFR c677t
    5 IUI's: 2/11 to 6/11 and 1/12= BFN
    OE IVF#1-4 8/11-6/12= all BFN
    DE IVF#1 11/12 bad embryos= BFN
    DE IVF #2 2/13 BFP/Beta hell: m/c 5w6d
    CFNBC 7 months, not doing well; decided on guarantee program at RBA w/frozen DE

    Welcome! I hope your stay is short. I wouldn't worry about a 32 day cycle;that doesn't seem long compared to a lot of women on these boards. As PP said, testing multiple times/day with the OPKs can help. I like the afternoon timeframe. Best of luck!

    Hi Georgia3!

    My apologies for the delay in responding to you.  I'm so glad to hear how much you enjoy your NP work.  I do as well, although it can be VERY stressful at times.  I'm full-time, Internal Medicine, but no call or weekends, thank God.  I think I'll probably change my schedule to four 10 hour days if I ever do have a baby.  Some of my colleagues have that schedule and it works better for them in terms of childcare, etc.  But, I have to get pregnant first!  I'm going to have a progesterone level drawn after work today.  Once that is resulted, we can see what the next step is.  How is your journey coming along??

     I hope you are well!

    KZ.
