Hello..

I am not yet 41 but will be there is 3 months. We are ttc with baby number 2 (actually, I am hoping for twins:) I am somewhat concerned because a friend of my cousin is over 40 (I'm guessing 44) and her and her husband had been trying for almost 2 years and had to go to a fertility clinic spending huge amounts of money and still cannot conceive.
She had her 1st child within 6 months of trying.

I had my first within 4 months of trying and now I am wondering if the same thing will happen to me. I did have a C-section...I don't know if that plays a part in this.

hi there,


i don't believe a c-section effects future fertility, but i could be wrong..... as far as the friend of your cousin, i guess you just have to remember that every body is different, and there are no statistics on yours!

Hi

I am new to this board. Anyway i am 40, have twins turning six in January and started trying for one more last year. My twins were conceived via IVF and it worked on the first try. Now i have just been through ICSC/IVF and just learnt today that it failed! I am a bit down, especially after going through so much fertiltiy treatments and spending money, but i am NOT giving up. I have now left it to GOD, and i pray and quote bible verses everyday and know in my heart that it will happen for us again soon. So dont give up, as long as we can have children lets just keep on trying. My best friend is 41 and is expecting twins via IVF, so, i say to everyone, dont give up! These days its common for women 40+ to be having children, times have changed.
So, we have 2 frozen eggs left that we are hoping to transfer next month....So, lets stay positive, think positive until we have that positive test result. I also had a c-section i dont think it means that much in this case.
