Hi,
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost 3 years. For the past 2 years I have had several IUI's and 1 IVF. After having my IVF this past March, I have not felt the same. I suffer from IBS-C and was doing well with it until the transfer in March. Now, the hormone side effects have subsided but the IBS is still a struggle. I have been told by several doctors that IBS does not cause fertility problems. I don't think I can go through IVF again. It was too painful emotionally and physically. We are trying again to do this naturally. I chart my cycles every month which are pretty consistent. I have also been going for acupuncture treatments. I have been afraid to start on any medications or herbal supplements because of the IBS. I am really starting to lose hope. Everyone around me is having babies. It just seems so easy for them. I have been depressed over this for a while now and don't know how to snap out of it. I have been thinking about going to a therapist but are they going to say? "Try to relax and it may happen because you are not thinking about it so much" or "Sometimes things are not meant to be"? I don't know. I'm so bitter, angry and hurt that I just don't know what route to take anymore.
Thanks for letting me vent!
