Question: TTC for 2 years - any advice?

 HeatherJ - Tue Apr 26, 2005 8:40 pm

It will be 2 years in July since we started TTC - I have done 3 IUIs with 50 mg's of Clomid and HCG Trigger shot.....obviously all failed.. I have been charting my temps for 1 year...using OPTs for a few months and now starting to use a Fertility Monitor . Also taking 1 baby aspirin, Green tea pill, Flax Oil and Prenatal pills..

Is there ANYTHING else that I can do to increase my chances ???? Im going to be 31 in May ---> what really are my chances each month to get Pg ? 20% ?
I should add that my husbands sperm count is where it needs to be..

Thanks for any advice !

User avatar Hello Heather J,

Are you seeing a Reproductive Specialist? There are so many things that can interfere with fertilization. Some woman have antibodies to sperm, polycystic ovaries, fibroids, fallopian problems, etc. I don’t know what else to add, it sounds like you’ve been doing your homework. A specialist would be your next move if you don’t have one. I hope all goes well and you have a baby soon.
