Question: Trying and trying and trying ...

I am a 33 years old woman with diabetes. I had 3 miscarriages before my son was born. My husband and I have been desperately trying to have another child for 6 years. You can set a clock by my periods. On the dot every month. Any suggestions??

User avatar At this point I would try a fertility workup if you have been actively trying - meaning having regular sexual intercourse, especially during fertile periods. You can use a special device that measures your body's core temperature to assist you with knowing your fertile days. Typically this will be day 8 through day 19, counting from the beginning of your period as day one.
