    Thank you for providing this platform for people who struggle with infertility to connect. It can be a very lonely time and many women aren’t comfortable sharing their struggles.

    So hoping to conceive! My husband and I chose to delay having a child so that we could have a stable, happy home with less financial worries. Now just worried about conception!

    It’s somewhat comforting to know you’re not alone with this struggle and there is hope…so everyone here just keep positive and full of hope!

    My husband and I have been actively trying to conceive for over 2 years. We have had two pregnancies that both ended in miscarriage…

    I know it seems hopeless at times, especially when so many people around you achieve pregnancy at the drop of a hat or weren’t even “trying” but know you’re not alone and someone knows your daily struggles and heartache!

    My husband and I have spent the last 6 years of our marriage trying to conceive. It has been the most all consuming quest but we have met so many wonderful people along the way and are so grateful to have the love and support of family and friends. Sharing our struggle was the single best thing that we did to help ease the burden of this challenge. You don’t have to suffer in silence. Join a support group, reach out to your family, let those who care about you help you carry the load.

    I am suffering from Secondary Infertility. I have had 2 MCs and an ectopic pregnancy very recently that lead to removal of my right tube. Reading thru all of these resources has already gotten me out of my “slump” and is giving me a new found hope. I know whatever will be, will be but I have faith and now a number of resources and support to count on!! Good luck and sticky baby dust to you all xoxo

    I understand what a long, sometimes hopeless journey TTC can be. I have been TTC for 3 years and only 2 miscarriages. Now, at 45 I don’t see that becoming a reality much longer. Meanwhile I’m gonna keep trying. There is a lot of good info out there to guide and prepare for pregnancy. My favorites are Marc Sklar & Heidi Brockmeyer. I wish all the best of luck to all of you.

    This has been the hardest challenge of our lives. We have a three year old daughter through our first try through IVF, but we have had nothing but failures since. The hardest part of this battle is my daughter always asking for a brother or sister or both. My wife and I are tapped out of the IVF game due to expenses, but we are determined to improve our lives and are determined to build our family the natural way. Keep the Faith!!!

    I have experienced so much prejudice and bias against trying to become a mother at an “advanced maternal age” (gag, how I hate that label), along with complete dismissal by the local professional medical community who only seem to see dollar signs and don’t want to help find solutions. As if trying to conceive unsuccessfully for years and experiencing miscarriage isn’t hard enough, the lack of support only grows as your years add up, leading to more feelings of isolation and frustration. As long as I’m still ovulating, I’ve got a chance (yes, go ahead, quote me the percentages AGAIN!). Over and over, I feel like I’ve been told to just give up and accept the inevitable childlessness. HELLO, my ovaries aren’t dead yet! Why can’t those of us who are of AMA receive the support and encouragement, like all those dealing with infertility?

    Infertility is a crazy journey… we’ve been trying for over 5 years. Sometimes I hit a place where I feel hopeless, but I know that God has a plan, and His plan is good. I’m just so thankful that our doctors are, little by little (feels like it’s taking centuries though), finding out our issues and helping us to overcome them.

    Dealing with MFI can be extremely tough. I was very upset with myself at the beginning. I was always thinking, “Why me???” After my wife did a lot of research and we met with medical professionals, I learned that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Although you may be upset with your condition, it takes time to accept reality and move forward with a positive attitude to find a solution. We are trying everything we can, and every step is a step closer to our baby. Keep strong! Don’t let that negative mindset take over your journey!

    Never give up! There are countless resources to inform and support you along the journey. Read and learn as much as you can. Don’t just depend on what medical professionals say. The more you know, the more confident you’ll be and will never able to make the best decisions for your infertility journey. Always remain positive because things will work out!

    Infertility is such a burden. Those who have not walked this path will never understand, and that has been the biggest struggle (after not being able to get pregnant of course). I wish fertile couples understood the difficulities of infertility and could be more supportive and empathetic. I feel like I am constantly defending myself for not being happy enough for others who are getting the one thing I want.

    We have been trying for over 3 years and are currently taking a break, but its still always on my mind, especially anytime I see a child or a pregnant woman. We are considering adoption so we can find a little soul out there who needs us to be their parents. I still have many “child-bearing” years left, and so will continue trying as many other things as I can before doing IVF. It’s hard to know what to do and what not to do, especially when those things we infertile women are so focused on don’t really stop other people from getting pregnant, but there is a child out there who needs us and our unique talents, whether they do or don’t come from our own bodies. May we all find peace and joy in what comes our way!

    My heart is overwhelmed reading all of the encouragement from others struggling with infertility. The road for us has been long and hard. We are still dreaming about our miracle baby and ever hopeful that one day it will be “our turn.” When I am discouraged or disappointed after another month of being a hormonal hot mess, I am reminded that I am not alone. You are not alone. As much as it hurts to be a part of this clique, know that one day the smell of a sweet baby swaddled in your arms will make these moments, these struggles a part of your journey. A journey that will encourage and inspire others. The greatest joy awaits us.

    After a 3 year struggle, with one miscarriage, we brought our rainbow baby into the world. 2 years later, we are praying for a sibling….but the wait begins. 6 months of “not-trying” but not preventing, and 1 year of “trying”….and we are waiting again to conceive.

I have PCOS and Endometriosis, have had multiple fertility surgeries and procedures, taken several rounds of fertility mess, spent a combined total of 7 1/2 years trying to conceive both of my boys but I’m here to tell you that God hears the cries of your heart. Don’t despair! I now have an amazing 6 yr old son and an amazing 18 month old son!! We are currently trying for number three and are faxing the same infertility challenges, but I know God didn’t give me this desire for a third for no reason.

    This journey so far has been absolutely crazy for my husband and I. But I know that we are not the only ones going through this and I love meeting other who are going through what we are going through. It helps me get some support and helps me to talk to people, because I only have talked to my husband and parents about the situation. Lets all support each other and help each other through.
