  • Welcome ladies. I'm sorry that you find yourselves here, but it's an amazing group to help you get through the long roller coaster that is infertility.
  • Welcome. I am dealing with secondary infertility as well- DS is 3.5 and we've been ttc for a little over 2 years. I have pcos and had a blocked tube caused by my cesarean with him, but had a lap in May to repair it. 
    Hope your IVF journey is short

  • Welcome. I have also been dealing with secondary infertility for about the last 8 years. It took 2 years for me to conceive my second child and now it's been about 5.5 years TTC for the third. I was supposed to start IVF this month but insurance denied my claim (even though I have IVF coverage...figure that one out), so I will probably be continuing with IUI while I fight the good fight.

  • Welcome to the board and good luck with your upcoming IVF. 

    @tosh24 You don't happen to have Aetna? Same exact thing happened to me with the IUIs before getting IVF. I had to get 6 IUIs before they deemed me worthy of being treated by my doctor in the manner he sees fit, lol. 

  • Welcome, new to TB as well.  I have primary infertility and have to have DE IVF in order to conceive.  I am looking into when to start my next round.  I hope things go very smoothly for you!

  • ^Reported for being a bot^ Are we tired of everyone's infertile sister yet, @crystal321

  • @sarcasticowl omg they are relentless

  • I wish you good luck with your upcoming IVF. I got pregnant after the third IVF attempt. I’m glad that my DH assured me to do it again. Actually, I was ready to give up. Two unsuccessful attempts were killing me. I didn’t want to keep trying. Now I can’t imagine our life without our baby. That’s why IVF is a good idea. Hope your first attempt will be successful. Let us know how are you doing.

    Girls, good luck to all of you. Stay positive and you will definitely succeed. Look at me…I’m a happy mother. I wish you the same. We can do it.

  • Howdy my friend. How are you holding up. I hope that things at your end are running smoothly. Really sorry to hear that you are suffering from infertility. It is the worst thing that can happen to a couple. I wish I could help you somehow... All I can do though is tell you that I share your pain. I have fertility issues myself. 

    My ride has also be super duper crazy! I had to change my entire lifestyle and be more of an adult. Lately I have been missing the good old days but... Yeah, it is better this way!

    I am hoping to be able to concieve naturally. I think that if I try hard enough I will. However if I fail I will turn to IVF this year too. We can share stories on the future. Looking forward to that. Much love to you darling...
