Period=Disappointment

I did a round with clomid and to no success. My doctor then perscribed me Femara and my body reacted positive to it. I did have headaches and dizziness with it which surprised me when I didn't really have anything when I took clomid. Being a women most of us can tell when are period is right around the corner. Everytime I just want to scream. It makes me so angry. All of the things you are trying to do and it just doesn't seem to matter because her come AF anyways. Always right on time. It is just a disappointment. When you hear and see pregnant women everywhere and wonder what did I do wrong that it isn't happening to me. There are days I just feel like sitting around all day and crying. It sucks so much and I honestly wouldn't wish any of this on my worst enemy. Just needed to vent. Thanks Shelly

Hey Shelly, we certainly are here for you to vent. No doubt that TTC can be a frustrating and unrewarding process at times. One the TTC 12 months community they often call AF "The Witch." Unless you're not ovulating at all, no one is happy to have a visit from Aunt Flow.

I don't know if you're seeing a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) yet or not. However, if you haven't yet and your current doctor doesn't seem to have more to offer, you may want to consider it.

Hopefully some of the other ladies who post here will add their support!

I have been doctoring with the same doctor who works in the Infertility Clinic at the hospital I go to. At the end of December I had surgery for Endometriosis, which was moderate. Three months later I did my first and only cycle of Clomid which produced 3 folicles. Now I did my first cycle of Femara which produced 2 folicles. My period comes right on schedule every month. My doctor said I ovulate but it may not always be right on schedule so I do the home Ovulation Test. It is just so frustrating and disappointing and everything inbetween when you can feel AF is on the way. Everytime my heart breaks. It just seems as though there is no explination to why nothing is happening.

I'm glad to hear you've been working with an infertility doctor, but I'm sorry you haven't seen a BFP yet.

Just out of curiosity, has your husband/boyfriend's sperm been tested? Sometimes when one partner has known issues, everyone focuses on that. However, it's possible sometimes for both partners to have fertility challenges.

Holding good thoughts for a BFP for you!

Yes he has been tested and he has nothing wrong with him. Everything with his test came back perfect. So it is all me. It is such a disappointment and frustrating and everything in between. I am not taking the fertility drugs this month to give myself a month to not feel like crap. Probably not a smart thing to do but I guess I also am tired of being disappointed month after month. Well over a year and a half of trying and nothing does nothing for your mental well being. I still hold on to a little hope but not a lot. Thanks for your input, much appreciated. Shelly
