Hi Stella,
my name is Wendy. I am charting, I check CM throughout the month. OFP meaning off the pill. I am currently seeing a naturopath (for a couple months now) and have been taking herbs and having acupuncture which has been great to help manage the stress. I turned 40 in December, but I think some of my problems started because the doc who I saw a year prior (when I stopped taking birth control) alarmed me about my age so my stress about the situation has been a factor. My beautiful daughter will be 3 next week and with her it happened the first month. I would appreciate any shared experiences or advice from anyone to help me keep the hope!

I wanted to give you some hope.......I am 44 and I have a 19 month old beautiful,HEAITHY baby boy.I was 40 and 8 months when my husband had a vasectomy reversal.I concieved 2 years later at 42 and delivered at 43.The pregnancy and birth were amazing.I know it's so hard every month that goes by without a bfp.I had really thought it wasn't going to happen when it did.Try to stay positive and BELIEVE!!!

Good luck

Hi there! Thank you so much for your response. You are bringing me hope! Did you ever have your blood work done and find out what your FSH levels were? I am hoping that it is just a matter of time and that since I am older it is taking longer.

I never had any bloodwork done.In fact we didn't even have the vasectomy reversal checked to see if it had worked.We decided to put it in God's hands.
