To just give up now?
MegGriffin1 · 20/06/2016 22:10
Pcos. Clomid failed. Should I just do me and the world a favour and give up ?

I don't know what else you have experienced during your journey to ttc. However is does seem like you need a cuddle. Time to be angry and frustrated before you can even contemplate if there is a next move.
Very unfair that it hasnt worked for you.
MegGriffin1 · 20/06/2016 22:21
I just think its time to accept kids arent meant for me tbh
Hyland · 20/06/2016 22:35
Would finances allow you to seek further help.
How long have you been trying?
MegGriffin1 · 20/06/2016 22:37
Weve got money. I just dont want to waste my life
PurpleDaisies · 20/06/2016 22:40
You could take a break for a few months and see how you feel. You don't have to decide right now in the midst of the upset that the clinic hasn't worked as you'd hoped.
Stopping is such a hard decision to make. I think you're right to consider the all encompassing effect that trying has on your life and relationship. Do you think talking up a counsellor might help.
It's a rotten place to be in.

I'm on the other side of the trying for a baby coin, every single time I ovulate I get pregnant but every single time I have a miscarriage ranging in weeks , I just had miscarriage number 6 three weeks ago. so I don't fully understand the working of clomid but I do understand how devastating it is not to have a child and want one so badly and the questioning of "should I try again"
It's so painfully cruel and upsetting, as there are often no answers at all as to why, it just all feels desperately unfair.
I can only tell you what I do and that is to take time to be kind to myself, lean on your partner, comfort each other and then decide what to do next.
I'm just so sorry, it's so bloody hard for you
Davegrohlstalkermum · 20/06/2016 22:47
Kittensandknitting are you having that investigated? There are some really successful clinics specialising in repeat miscarriage and implantation failure. Hope you find a way through.
MegGriffin1 · 20/06/2016 22:49
Yeah i do actually. If im honest i cant be arsed
Davegrohlstalkermum · 20/06/2016 22:50
I get not wanting to be arsed. Are you going to be happy being childless?
MegGriffin1 · 20/06/2016 22:51
Well ive been childless for 30 years so i guess i cant miss what i dont know
KittensandKnitting · 20/06/2016 22:54
meg does he really or is just putting on a brave face, I do think it effects men differently but it is also a very emotional time for them too.
Dave I am, lots and lots of tests already all "normal" going private now and looking at high fertility, and going to Coventry thanks to the advise of another poster on here. Just fingers crossed here for luckly number seven. Did hear of a lady who got lucky on number 19 so I keep telling myself I can keep going although at time like the OP I just want to give up on it all, but the trying eventually seems a lesser evil than not if that make sense.
PurpleDaisies · 20/06/2016 22:56
I'm not sure it's quite that simple meg. Quite a lot of people feel grief at the losing the life they thought they'd have.
Everyone's different. There are no rules about what's right or wrong in how you deal with this situation. You don't have to keep trying. Just beware that even if you think you're all sorted sadness can sneak up on you when you don't expect it.
KittensandKnitting · 20/06/2016 22:57
Meg do you really feel like that or just trying to tell yourself this? It's ok to let it out how you feel here, even if it's not what you would do in RL
It's really very hard, I just worry you don't have the support you need
PurpleDaisies · 20/06/2016 22:58
Sorry, lots of cross posts. I was responding to "you can't miss what you've never had".
MegGriffin1 · 20/06/2016 22:58
I just dont care. Everyone seems to hate their kids anyway
Davegrohlstalkermum · 20/06/2016 22:59
Kittensandknitting, I'd recommend reading "is my body baby friendly?" by Alan Beer, it's all about rpt mc and immune issues. I have/had immune issues and went to a clinic specialising in this (private) and finally between 38 and 40 had 3 kids.
Davegrohlstalkermum · 20/06/2016 23:00
OP you don't sound like you don't care, sweetheart.
KittensandKnitting · 20/06/2016 23:01
Thank you dave very much appreciated I will go onto Amazon now and this has given me hope.
I don't want to derail the OP, I thought my experience may help although very different so am going to leave the thread now.
Good luck OP
