Hi - Just signed up to this website as I'd be so grateful of some moral support. My husband is infertile and it has taken him 3 years to be comfortable with me having a donor. I finally had treatment but haven't got pregnant. I feel devastated even though it's my first time. This seems like a silly overreation on my part... it was just that I want to get pregnant so much and I think I may be hanging 3 years worth of angst on it! I have had tests and everything is fine with me but I'm 37 so worrying. I'm suprised how depressed it has made me feel. It's quite an ordeal, the 2 week wait from ovulation to testing. It'll be hard to go though it each month emotionally but I know I must do it. Has anyone else had the same thing - even if not with donor sperm, just with the emotion of wanting to get pregnant each month? It's tough hey? xx

Welcome to ehealthforum

I am sorry to hear about you and can understand what you might be going through.But do not be depressed as many woman as in your case conceive in 3 or 4 attempts.Though it is quite distressing to wait every month but be relaxed as it may affect conception.Since all your tests and reports are fine you would not have much difficulty and would be pregnant soon.Go ahead with the treatment as advised.
All the best and Take care!
