I'm only 18months in. Unexplained secondary.

I'm not coping very well this last month.

How do you keep going? xx

I had trouble catching on my second too and it's awful. I don't know how I did it but every month I kept plodding on. I went to see a naturopath on the end and I caught the next month xx

Minibow Tue 05-Mar-19 12:45:05

I've done reflexology and now I'm on acupuncture.

How long did it take? This would be our third. With my other 2 the longest it took was 5 months.

I can't deal with the anger I have xx

ballsdeep Tue 05-Mar-19 13:11:32

It took about 10 months. I would recommend a naturopath, mine was amazing and found what I was missing mineral wise. Its horrible, and people say be grateful for the ones you have buy it's not helpful when you have the need and yearning for another xx

Sorry you’re in this situation.

I focused on saving for private investigations as I didn’t have confidence in those done at the local miscarriage clinic. I also had counselling.

I avoided paying for alternative therapies, and wasn’t able, in my distress, to make any lifestyle changes, eg diet, exercise, I just got home from work and went on fertility forums!

annburton Tue 05-Mar-19 16:53:51

not numbers meant bum I need to go back to school and learn how to spell soz x

Loopytiles Tue 05-Mar-19 16:54:44

DH is very “stiff upper lip” and seemed fine/normal at the time, but then had some emotional fall-out once we were very lucky and had DC2.

annburton Tue 05-Mar-19 16:58:44

annburton Tue 05-Mar-19 17:01:56

they won't even give me the time of day to check if other tube is ruptured because of my depression they promised to help me I'm so emotional muddled

Minibow Tue 05-Mar-19 17:19:45

I could make sacrifices and pay private..but what if it doesn't work.

And can I really justify that with 2 already.

annburton Tue 05-Mar-19 18:39:23

annburton Tue 05-Mar-19 18:41:16

annburton Tue 05-Mar-19 18:46:27

Hi ladies,

Hugs to you all!
I hope you don't mind me joining in this thread.
I have just had a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. Now being referred for IVF. No other option apparently.
This is After a year of private tests and IUI, which was badly managed and advised. Waste of time and money. But I've settled my complaint with them.

I'm waiting an appointment for a hysteroscopy. Biopsies and 'scrape'
Had more bloods today.

I can conceive, but can't keep it longer than a week or two.

I'm pretty sure my herbal meds, and acupuncture really helped last time. It's the longest I've been pregnant, but I just can't afford the acupuncture right now.

Does anyone have any suggestions on increasing blood flow to the uterus?

Wishful During this round the doctor put me on viagra as that increases blood flow.
