Getting Pregnant Question
An_249752 posted:
I know that this group is more geared towards those who are already pregnant, but I thought I would at least see if anyone had any input.

Nearly 5 years ago I had gave birth to my daughter, at my 6 week check up I decided to get the depo shot. However I gained a ton of weight and had other side effects so I never went back to get another shot at the end of the 3 months. I have not been on any type of birth control since then either. I read a lot of information about the depo taking awhile to get out of a persons system and causing a delay in pregnancy so I didn't get to bothered when I wasn't getting pregnant after my daughter turned 1 but when she hit 2, 3 and then 4 years old I started to slowly be bothered by the fact that I haven't gotten pregnant yet.
I eat right, don't smoke, rarely drink, stopped drinking soda, work out here an there and take a daily vitamin. My husband drinks on rarely, rarely drinks soda, eats pretty well etc. also.. We have tried different positions, following my ovulation schedule etc. but still no luck.
Our insurance does not cover anything related to fertility, so I was hoping someone here may have some tips on what we can do.
Please keep in mind that we have been actively trying for over a year, but were open to getting pregnant for the other 3 years. My daughter is turning 5 in just a few weeks and I really am getting depressed that she has had no siblings to share her younger years with..
