    Starflame have u thought about getting treatment? Like starting on clomid or fsh?

    For me I know thats not possible due to my weight so I'm just trying to lose weight and ttc at same time. Trying to lose all the weight first will take me years which I don't have @ 34. It's hapened once before so I need to hold onto hope that it will happen again. I've got nothing else to hold onto

    Hey Starflame, I can't imagine trying for so long but try to stay positive. (Easy to say, not so easy to do) We only took 11 months trying for this baby but lost 2 during that time and it was utterly heartbreaking as each month went by.
    It took 2-3 cycles with Vitex before my cycle was 'ideal' for hanging onto baby. We fell pregnant the 4th month on Vitex but had a chemical pregnancy (not meant to be !?!?) Then fell 3 months later with this bub.
    Just wanted to give you something little to hold onto. So although it didn't happen that first month (which was my hope) it did happen.

    Our first child took 54 cycles and it was vitex that gave her to us. I do have 2 children now, but I completely know what it's like to be childless, desperate and wondering if it's ever going to happen. After 4.5 years I had pretty much given up all hope.

    I tell myself every cycle now when AF comes that it's time to give up and accept there will be no more babies. But I just can't give up. Hang in there

    So in a nutshell - what does Vitex do?

    It evens out your hormones. It helps the hormones in the first half, getting your brain to produce more estrogen and LH to release the egg, and increases progesterone to help maintain early pg and lengthen short LP.

    Im glad im not the only one who thinks this is never going to happen. Ive been trying for almost 3 years now to have #2 that will be #4 if it happens. i know patience is a virtue and all good things come to those who wait but seriously hurry up. Its comforting to share these feelings with women that understand exactly what we think and feel. ive missed this cycle because we were all sick which really pees me off, but theres more cycles to go. wishing everyone

    We can't afford fertility treatment. I've been on a waiting list to see a gyno since October last year and according to them the wait will be another 10 months. So no hope there.

    I've stopped taking the vitex. It's pretty obvious I'm not going to ovulate this cycle and I'm so over taking the array of vitamins and metformin and nothing happening. I'm over the whole thing and I wish I'd never started ttc. Sometimes I even wish I hadn't got with df because I never thought of babies before I was with him.

    I hate that I feel like my life will be pointless if I can't be a mother to my very own child. I hate that my body doesn't work and all around me there are women who take getting pregnant for granted, who keep smoking and drinking and doing drugs while they are pregnant, who constantly whinge about how hard being pregnant is. I would give everything I have to be able to experience growing a human being and bringing them into the world. It's just not fair and I don't want it to be such a struggle anymore.

    It terrifies me that I will still be childless this time next year. I can't take that.

    When I decided to TTC I stopped taking the pill after I got AF and my cycle was 45 days. After 35 or so days, I thought here we go, I'm going to be irregular again so started taking vitex then.

    I got AF after the 45 days and continued on Vitex until 14 DPO, which was a few days after we DTD and got pregnant straight away. I was using OPKs at the time which helped indicate when to DTD which probably helped just as much.

    im unaware of vitamin b to help conceive, but I've read a lot that a lack of vitamin D in mothers has been linked to childhood allergies, so ill be stocking up on that now (we plan on TTC in the next month or so). I also read that fish oil is meant to be useful in reducing chances of intolerances so ill be trying that as well this time around.
