Newbie: Hope for lady with secondary infertility?

Hi all! I joined to share my experience with other women having the same problem. I'm 34 years old. I've got a 10 year old daughter but can't have another pregnancy. My spouse and I had treatment (antibiotics for a sexually transmitted infection) and everything seemed OK, but we still can't conceive one year after completing treatment. Our doctor is talking of in vitro fertilization (IVF). We are both very worried about having IVF since we read that the success rate is about 25%. Plus, it is not covered by insurance. We want to try naturally again for a three to six months before going down that road. I'm tracking my ovulation now (very strict about it) and keeping my fingers crossed.

  • That's a brilliant inspiring story xxx

  • Hello Praxides, i feel for you; secondary infertility is really hard. I get what you mean about the IVF. We have a 4.5 year old and have been trying for a second for 4 years. After being prescribed Clomid ( i have 2 rounds left) IVF would be the next step for us. I am nearly 35, the chances like you say aren't​ that high and i just don't think i want to go through with it, or have the will & strength it requires. ( Hats off to all the ladies who do!).

    So no advice, but you are not alone. It is great to see the positive story from Nicolahunny.

    All good luck vibes to you! Xxx
