    Default Been ttc with no luck

    Ok I am 34 have 6 children and my last was born august 25, 2010. I was on bc for 6 months after that. Quit taking it in march 2011. My husband and Ihave been ttc ever since with no luck. I had my last one by c-section. Is it possible that the doctor could have messed something up in there while she was doing the c-section. I would really like to have just one more baby before I get too much older. Have been tracking my periods and we have intercourse during my ovulation periods. I just don't understand why nothing is happening. Any advice?

    (((Hugs)))...I'm sorry you're having trouble ttc this time around !

    Since it's been almost a year I'd recommend consulting with your dr. Has your health changed since you gave birth last? Have you had a dramatic weight loss or gain in the last year? Any thyroid issues? Did you breastfeed and if so how long? Are your cycles regular? Have you used opks to see if you're ovulating?

    I don't mean to pry and you don't have to answer...just throwing some thoughts out :-)

    I have not consulted a doctor for this issue as my insurance is very picky about what they will cover. But nothing has changed since my daughter was born in 2010. I bottle fed cause they put me under and I was on morphine when I woke up. My cycles are very regular. I'm on a 27 day cycle. I haven't ever used any opks I just rely on my tracker app on my android. Idk What's wrong with me?

    How frustrating ...it's so hard when something like this happens and throws us for a loop : /

    I wish I had some helpful suggestions. Are you 100% sure you're ovulating? Is it possible the issue is with DH? Has anything changed for him since your last baby together?

    I don't know about the c-sec...it's usually pretty straightforward...I suppose it's possible but I would think unlikely?...not sure.

    I know some women's tubes become blocked but that would require specific testing.

    The ladies here are great so I'm sure they'll have some helpful considerations :-)

    I did think of something that has changed. My husband had a surgery in his groin region where he had to have an absess removed in the crock of his leg right next to his manhood. Idk if that has anything to do with it or not. Our insurance doesn't cover fertility specialists to have these things checked out.

    So sorry about your difficulties ttc

    There are tests that are nt as good as the dr office ones, but you can mail away for a sperm count test. My DH also doesn't have insurance, so he went and paid for a real sperm analysis which was $150 at a fertility place. Not cheap, but if you have the $ to spare, worth it for peace of min and cheaper than a women to get worked up. But with that said, if he surgery was only superficial and on one side, chances are it should not have changed things much bc he just needs one functioning side.

    There are some mail away tests for women, but I have not tried those and do not know how reliable they are. Tracking your o with a basal body thermometer might help too, but it does sound like you are regular.

    GL! I hope you get some answers soon so you can continue to add onto your family
