    chelseyfay32: Chelsey (26) and Matt (26). We've been married 4 years this summer. It took us 7 months to get BFP, which ended in M/C back in 2009. We've been ttc ever since and no luck. We've been going through fertility testing the past 6 months and everything is normal I just finished my first round of Clomid just over a week ago.

    Coley:Nicole (34) just came back to the forum after a few years absence. STC since 2010. On my third round of Clomid. O'd around CD 15 or 16. Currently in the TWW.

STC#2 since Jan 2009, did 3 rounds of clomid (2 timed intercourse and 1 IUI) at the end of '09 early 2010. Started seeing a chiro/nutritionist/acupuncturist for the rest of 2010. 2011 I participated in a PCOS study at the University, did 5 cycles with femara and got pregnant between cycles 4 and 5, had a miscarriage in June 2011. Just starting up treatment w/a new RE and feel it's a fabulous fit. Inducing AF now and then we'll be doing femara/injectibles and IUI. *Expecting Dec 2012*

    Four Gulls: Mary (37) Chris (36), TTC #5 since 2010. Suffered a miscarriage at 14 weeks and have been unable to conceive since. Started seeing a RE in June of 2011 and have had four failed IUI's and am currently on meds for my fifth IUI. RE suggests IVF but insurance won't cover until it has been two years of documented infertility. Good luck to everyone!!

I used this website when I was pregnant with DS and loved everyone so much that I decided to come back again.

    Hmmm, still new to APA. Is STC-Again a better place for me to post? Or can I post here? Be honest, you won't hurt my feelings.

    i believe both rooms are applicable. You can post here and ask questions directly related to secondary infertility in the STC-A room when you want

    Nicole (34) just came back to the forum after a few years absence. STC since 2010. On my third round of Clomid. O'd around CD 15 or 16. Currently in the TWW.

    I came back because I know my husband is tired of talking about babies and pregnancy. I just needed a place to talk, vent, ask questions, and know that I have a support group who understands my disappointments and fears.

    Me: Leigh, 33. DH: Matt, 37. DD: Sonja, will be 2 in April . I was diagnosed with PCOS as a teenager, put on various BCPs over the years but encountered problems with each one (intermittant spotting, high blood pressure, exercise intolerance, you name it!) Stopped BCPs officially in 2004, married Matt in August 2004. Didn't prevent PG but never really charted or tracked my cycles, just enjoyed being newlyweds. Matt went to federal prison (long story, another time perhaps) in November 2005, so good thing I didn't have a baby! Matt got out July 2007, so TTC officially resumed! We didn't chart or anything until I found APA and FF in April 2008. Started seriously TTC that summer, finally getting PG with Sonja in July 2009 after 18 cycles of NPP/TTC. Started TTC #2 officially in May 2011, had 2 m/c's and 2 chemicals since then, on a Dr-recommended wait until April 2012. Hoping to resume TTC and get PG with #2 ASAP.

    Chelsey (26) and Matt (26). We've been married 4 years this summer. It took us 7 months to get BFP, which ended in M/C back in 2009. We've been ttc ever since and no luck. We've been going through fertility testing the past 6 months and everything is normal I just finished my first round of Clomid just over a week ago. I'm 1dpo, so I guess it's just a little more BD and a lot of waiting...
