I would really like some help/advice from anyone who has had a simular problem to mine. I have been ttc for nearly 16 months after coming off the depo and having been using a ovulation kit for the past 3 months with no joy - I havent had any positive results to show that im ovulating and not sure what to do now! My periods are regular and had no trouble conceving my first child 4 1/2 years ago?

Sorry to Hear
Hi hon,
i understand and you're not alone. I'm sure that you've visited a hundred thousand websites about this and did what I do... You come here to talk to real ppl. Some people don't start ovulating for like 18 months... Or that's what i've heard. I really don't know and I hope that isn't the case for either of us. I am also ttc and got off depo 6 months ago. A thousand ppl will tell you to be patient but you know as well as I do that that doesn't work. My husband and I tried for 9 months to get pregnant before I went back to school after my miscarriage and no pos hpt, but we were drinking heavily. I want to tell every woman who's using alcohol to calm themselves while ttc that it just makes things worse. I'm sure that's the reason we didn't get pregnant, but I guess it was for the best.
Good luck.

Im sorry to hear about your loss.
Yeah that is the exact reason why I ended up on here! And yeah I have searched so many websites but like you say most of them just tell you to be patient, eat healthy blah blah!! Im sick of doing that now!! Im finding it really hard as quite a few of my friends/family are pregnant or just had babies and they all started trying after me!!!
Wishing you all the luck for the future!
