    Default TTC and very confused! Pls help.

    Hi everyone,
    Im new to this site, but after numerous attempts at talking to DR's I've given up hope.
    Im 25 and my husband is 26, we have been ttc now for over 14 months. Each month i am disappointed to find out i haven't conceived. I have been to Drs who tell me nothing is wrong and to try intercourse 12 days post period, have intercourse every 2 days, lay on your back for longer, have an orgasm and the best one yet maybe if you loose a few Kg it will help. Im starting to think that i am infertile.

    This month my husband and i have had intercourse almost every day post period. in this time i did notice that i had ovulated but not at the 12 days like the Dr suggested but at 9. Its now a little over a week till my period is due and i have had mild cramping on and off and what i think is nausea. I'm trying not to give my hopes up, and I'm expecting a period soon anyway. Needless to say i joined this site for comfort and support as my husband is over trying and I'm assuming the problem is me. All i ever wanted since i was little was a baby, i see babies on every show, ad and radio ad now. Any one have any advise, I'm willing to take anything.

    Good luck Loz. I've read that many "infertile" couples aren't actually infertile they just don't know their cycles and when to dtd. We are lead to believe at school you only need to look at a guy and you'll get pregnant. Truth is there is only a few fertile days and pinpointing them is sometimes hard

    Thank-you, I've tried everything from calculating on a calendar to even ovulation test kits. I know that the mucus says everything and we have defiantly been doing it through what we were told and from i have read is the ovulation or fertile period.

    Have you had your hormones tested? Perhaps your body gears up to ovulate but doesn't actually release an egg.
    I'm so sorry that you've been on such a long emotional journey. Sending baby dust your way xx

    So have you both been tested? Everyone ovulates at different times. Many women are cycle day 14 but some are 9 some 16 others 25.

    Are you using OPK's?

    You sound like us. Both been tested. Nothing wrong, 20 cycles later nada

    I'm off to a gyno to have some in depth tests done so maybe that should be your next port of call? they will do a patency test, where they flush dye thru your tubes to make sure there is no blockage, maybe a laparoscopy...

    It will be fine You may be trying too hard!

    How long are your cycles? I know with my husband and I we were DDT when I thought I was ovulating (around day 13) but in fact, we should have been doing it from day 9- every 2nd day. Sperm has to have a chance to rejuvenate so DO NOT do it every day. it can live in a woman for ages as well (I heard 1 week) so its better to get in there early (so to speak) then try to time it to be bang on.

    You are so young , it will be 100% fine, but worry will not help you.
