I posted here a couple of years ago when my husband and I were TTC. We decided to take a few years off and I regret doing that. I recently turned 38 and I am panicking now lol. We have been having unprotected sex for years now and nothing ever happens. What is frustrating is that although I had issues getting pregnant with my 1st dd, I was able to get pregnant 5 years later with my 2nd and then 5 yrs later with my 3rd. Were we just not bd'ing at the right times or am I infertile? I had a 4th Clomid assisted pregnancy between my 1st and 2nd child, but it ended in miscarriage.

Well, ok, with my 2nd I took Clomid for 2 cycles and I didn't get pregnant so I decided to take a break and got pregnant 2 months later. Perhaps the Clomid kickstarted my system? Who knows. All I know is that I am much older now and we want another baby. I am afraid it just won't happen for us this time around because of my age. I am also worried about the ovarian cancer risk from taking Clomid.

Good luck and TONS of baby dust to everyone here!!

Hi Christy! It could just be taking longer because you are older. If I was you I'd go back to Clomid at least for a couple of cycles. How at risk are you from developing cancer?
