Feeling Helpless...

Hi, I am new to message boards. My friend suggested this would be a good place to talk, ask questions, and read about preganancy and issues. I hope someone out there can help me! I have been TTC for 14 months. My husband and I have gone through ALL tests and everything has come back great. I just finished my 3rd round of Femera and Ovidrel and just got AF tonight. My husband and I are just crushed. We thought the 3rd time would be the charm. For my next cycle, I am now moving onto injectables, with oral medication and Ovidrel. We are still doing Timed Intercourse. My question is has anyone been in the boat I am sitting in right now. I am feeling helpless. According to all of the tests, we are fine, my husband has always been very positive and has tried to keep my spirits up, but after tonight he took it really hard and is thinking this might never happen for us. I am worried the injectables will not work and it is a waste of our time. The doctor has told us to consider IVF. Has anyone that has been in my situation had success with IFV? I am wondering if the oral meds, and shots, do not work, will IVF work? I am just feeling down and helpless...

I know where you are coming from... I have had every kind of test imaginable... I was inittially not ovulating regularly, clomid didn't work, and so I moved on to injections. I responded well, but after 3 rounds I still had no luck. My husband is just fine too....


We found out that I had a fibroid that was displacing my uterus, I had it removed, and then I had some polyps removed a couple of weeks ago. My RE said that these growths were in spots that would absolutely effect the ability for an embryo to implant. So I am hoping this is it. IVF is planned for July.


I don't have PCOS or endometriosis, which are conditions that make it very hard to conceive. if you haven't yet had a sonnahystagram I would maybe ask for it, that's how they check for lining issues (polyps, fibroids, endo) which may be the problem....


I am really praying hard for a BFP from IVF. Thankfully insurance is covering it.


It took us 8 years to figure out my lining and my uterus weren't perfect, but only about 3 months to make it all perfect for IVF...


I know it's frustrating, but hang in there, you aren't alone in this!
