Hi all. We have been ttc for 2&half years now. I went to the doctors 18 months ago to see what my options were, I had bood & smear tests to make sure all was ok and I was ovulating regularly, luckily all seems to be fine apart from high stress levels, which I blamed on work, so much so that I went to the extreme and left my job as I was convinced it wasn't doing me any good, I ended up having 3 months off. I am now very happy in my new job. I have since had 2 more blood tests and my stress levels have reduced slightly. I was then booked in for an X-ray on my tubes to make sure there were no blockages - the doctors couldn't get the die to go through at first but after the 3rd attempt it worked and all was clear. I have now had a letter to say that if we haven't conceived by April 15 that we will be concidered to have IVF on the nhs - The doctors are not very helpful in suggesting more natural ways of conceiving - I feel that going straight into IVF will be too soon and that maybe I haven't investigated other options - any suggestions? - though it will be 3 years in Aprils of ttc - It's getting me so down just thinking about ttc all the time x
