Hello Ladies,

I have been TTC for about 1 1/2 years and in August resorted to using OPK's (Clear Blue).

Hi,

I'm sorry that you have to go through all of this. It's really hard when other people (in real life) cannot really understand how it feels to keep trying every cycle and to be disappointed. Since you've been trying for 1.5 years I'd say your doctor should start running tests right away (if you're ready for all of that). I learned through my own infertility trials that I had to be my own advocate to get things done. But you also need to be ready to get those tests done and be prepared to deal with whatever the results may be. Something else that really helped me as well was to find a support group. It was such a relief to find a group of other women going through the same things as me that I could talk to and share my fears, frustrations, etc with. Don't get me wrong, ivillage or other online groups are
