Trying to conceive for 9 months
hopeful2323 posted:
Hi, I'm new to this community. After reading some of the posts, I thought this may be a good place to get support as I struggle through infertility with my husband. We've been trying to conceive for over 9 months and had no luck. I have a 7cm uterine fibroid, suspected endometriosis, and possible PCOS (I'm currently waiting for the results from my doctor). Needless to say, I'm terrified and grieving for our possible loss of a family. At 24 years-old, I feel like I am being robbed of my fertility and my health. I'm trying to remain hopeful that there still is a chance that we could conceive our own child, but I feel like the odds are stacked against us. In addition, I am afraid to share this information with family members due to possible insensitive comments and hurtful questions. To all of you who share my pain and worry, how do you deal with the rough days? How did you share this information with your family members and friends?

Remember this issue belongs to you and your husband just like your children will belong only to you too. Share only if and when you're ready. People have been asking my husband and I when we're going to have a child. Our answer is 'Oh, we're just letting nature take its course.' There's no arguing with that.

If you do want to share I would definitely suggest waiting until all the tests have come back and you have a treatment plan in place. Because people are going to have lots of questions, at least now you'll feel confident in the answers.
