    I'm a 29yr female with a 33yr husband. We have been ttc since 2011 and have had nothing but upsets.

    I had the mirena from 2005-2010 and prior to our 2010 wedding we decided to ttc. After that everything went to pot and I started getting irregular periods. From 12/2010-04/2011 I bled (yes five months straight with no break). Then I was put on a pill to stop bleeding, but I could not get pregnant. After that I have not gotten my period back. It is highly irregular and I want to get pregnant before I turn 30. I've had ultrasounds and regular paps, but everything is normal according to doctors.

    I admit I am slightly overweight, but I also know a lot of women heavier than me with multiple kids...

    Any and all advice would help. I am considering trying vitex and fertiliad, but I'm wary of supplements. Most doctors feel like I am too young to consider IVF or any type of infertility treatment.

    Hi, I selected anything else. Have you had fertility testing done for both you and your partner? You have been trying for a long time so I would recommend either getting a referral to a reproductive endocrinologist or making an appointment yourself. Good luck.
