    Feel like I am never going to get pregnant
    Shellyf33 posted:
    Hi Everyone-my name is Shelly and I am 36 years old. Me and my husband have been trying to get pregnant for almost 3 years. I have had surgery for endometriosis and my doctor said I had a middle of the severness of endometriosis. I have been on two different types of Fertility medication. I went off of them because they made me very moody and my work didn't like how I was. I didn't think I was that bad but I guess I wasn't. I am going to go back on and try it again. I just feel like I am on the road to disappointment again. I try to stay positive and my husband is extremely positive which sometimes upsets me. He has been tested and is fine. I was wondering if anyone has any other advice on something that might help along with the Fertility medication. Thank You Shelly

    Hi Shelly,

    What you are feeling after the frustration of 3 years is not uncommon. Our expert has a wonderful post here: How do you deal with disappointment?

    There are 44 comments of others who may be in a similar situation. Some of their experiences and ways of coping might speak to you.

    I sure understand about the "positive husband". Often, it seems that women are the worriers and hold the stress of the relationship.

    How have you coped with your feelings so far?
