This is the first time I've ever done anything like this but I'm at a complete loss of what to do! My husband and I been trying for a year for our third child and we haven't had any luck. Here are some facts:
- We were able to conceive our first within 4 months, our second within 3 months; normal pregnancies, except that they both came out three weeks early. Totally healthy though.
- I have regular periods
- I have monitored my temperature, everything looks normal
- I took ovulation tests, tried on the days it said to, and still nothing.
- I moved our "trying" times back and forth along the calendar dates, (thinking my ovulating was off), but nothing.
- We have intercourse every other day around my expected ovulation time, and one month even every day (sorry if that's TMI).

I feel like I"m at the end of my rope here. Sadly we don't have any private insurance, so if we want to go to the doc we'll have to do it through government insurance or just straight self pay. I"m trying to find out if we need to start saving for those doctor visits, or if I"m just completely missing something.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi, i am going through simular thing. I have three children with my ex. im now with my present husband and for well over a year ( the dreaded year seems to be the time scale that makes u panic im sure!) we have been trying for a baby. his results came back fine and my blood tests were fine too. they did a complete check up of hormones/ etc and im still not pregnant. we have tried having sex all the time. every other day, every few days and nothing works. im pretty sure we are doing it more or less around the right time and its really got me down. normally i dont have this much trouble falling pregnant. i fell pregnant before when i was breastfeeding even.. but with my hubby not even a false alarm. its making em so worried there is somehting wrong with my insides althoug i have no reason to feel this way and i had a scan which showed no abnormalities or cysts... its just month after month and so many other people are getting pregnant and i am not... dont know what to suggest to you just want to let you know youre not alone x hugs x

if your period isnt due til the fifth i shouldnt test til then or atleast a couple of days before. good luck. its so hard all this. seeing everybody else get pregnant and feel sad inside. everytime someone else gets preg i see myself go in to a deep and sad state... 2 of my sisters are pregnant,everyone on face book seems to be announcing their pregnancies. its almost like a personal insult sometimes. dumb i know. really silly feeling this way...
just to say sri 123 that the fact you recently got pregnant is a great indicator there is nothin wrong with you...im so sorry for your loss earlier this year x

no worries sri123 we are going back to doc with hubby's results and she has mine. they wont put me on clomid as she says im defo ovulating. we are going to be passed on to subfertility clinic. scary but necessary. sometimes it upsets me but i think that maybe some couples are more fertile tog than others. ive had 3 children already and had no prob with my ex and maybe we were more suited conception wise. that is a horrible thought... so sad. hope u get there soon.. hugs x
