TTC for 3 years

Hi ladies,
I'm brand new on here...but after TTC for 3 years I'm at a loss so a friend recommended this site!

A little background..I'm 28 and came off the pill 3 years ago after 10 years. Periods came back last August (so a year and 3 months ago) and have been trying since then.
I have had all bloods checked, all seem ok, hubby's sperm is fine...and for the first time this month my ovulation has shown on a stick...currently 7dpo with everything crossed. Ovulation has also been tracked by bloods and dr says I am ovulating just maybe not every cycle.
We are currently seeing a fertility specialist and my next step is a HyCoSy tube check for blockages. I have never been pregnant...don't even feel close to it...just a big fat ZILCH!

Does anyone have similar stories?
Also, what have people experienced as first Symptoms? Every month I analyse everything and cause my period to be a few days late with stressing I think!

Thanks to all xxx

I think the infertility section might have more stories. Good luck!

Just wishing you all the best. It took 3 and a half years of ttc before I fell pregnant, so don't give up hope. I had assumed it was never going to happen for us, but am sat here holding my baby who has just turned one! I am convinced that stress had a large part to play in our prolonged ttc journey. X

Hi. It took us 3.5 years to conceive our dd. We had all of the tests and nothing identified so were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We had 3 cycles of IUI and one ivf - none worked. But I then fell pregnant naturally with dd the month after the ivf failed. To this day I’m sure that the progesterone supplements I used during the ivf helped - but no proof of that. I’ve recently had some additional tests done as now ttc #2 and that’s spotted some issues which might make the unexplained explained. We’ve gone private for those as we don’t qualify for help on the nhs this time around.

It’s an awful time and I remember many time’s thinking it was never going to happen. Have they suggested clomid if your ovulation is not regular?

Hope all works out x
