My dp and I have been ttc for 18 months. I've 2 dc age 12 & 10 from previous marriage.
I had problems with ttc my 12 yo but all ok with second child.
I'm almost 42 and have wanted another baby for a long time and delighted my dp wants a child of his own.
I've had all tests done as had he and they're all fine. I'm going for a HSG test in two weeks as recommended by my consultant. I am due my period a week after hsg so so t be fertile for 2-3 weeks after the test.
I asked my consultant for Clomid as I've been given this before when ttc my 12 yo but I didnt take it as I conceived just after I got it. Consultant said they don't tend to give it out much nowadays. Other than hsg that's it, no other options available.

Anybody any advice?

I've thought about trying to buy Clomid or a health food shop alternative.

Hi. I'm 42 next week. Ttc #4. #1 with new partner. He's nearly 40 with no kids. I don't really have any advice. Just thought I'd say hi. I'm on cycle #3, cd5. Since having coil removed I've had 2 cycles, 1 - 36 days, 2 - 67 days. Never struggled before but not happening for me yet. Getting impatient. How long have you been trying?

Oops I've just read your post again. 18 months! I'm sorry I have no advice to offer just thought I'd say hi as we're in similar position, only you've been trying a lot longer than me.

Didn't want to read and run, but can'take really help. I'm 41 and DH 42, we've conceived twice this year (first ended in mc) and each time has been on the 3rd cycle. We both eat healthily, do a lot of exercise etc.
Good luck with it.

Hello there. I had problems ttc2, I know the pain you feel when af arrives. I'm 40 and after over a year of trying have my 8 month old next to me. What I did was ditch my kits, dtd every 2-3 days. I researched about fertility (spent hours and hours) and Ubiquinol QC10 kept coming up particularly for our age group (Google Ubiquinol & fertility) within a month of this I was pregnant. Very best wishes to all of you.
