My husband and I are trying to conceive. I am 26 years old and I am recently remarried. I got married the first time at 19 and my first husband and I tried for the entire 6 years of our marriage to get pregnant. We did succeed twice, but one ended in miscarriage and the other was what the doctor called a chemical pregnancy. It was very disheartening to try for six years and still not have a child. Once I was divorced I accredited this to maybe it just wasn't meant for us to have a child since our marriage was so unhappy, but here I am now, married to the love of my life and we once again are having trouble getting pregnant. My new husband has a child from a previous marriage, but is not positive that the child is even his. He and his wife tried to get pregnant for a year with no luck and once they separated they got back together one night and a month later she found out she was pregnant. So we kind of consider it hard for me to get pregnantand him to get someone pregnant. Our health insurance does not cover fertility drugs and predicting my ovulation isn't helping. Does anyone have any suggestions? We are getting desperate here! I have even started considering herbs for ovulation.

I understand that you health coverage doesnt include fertility issues.
have you talking with your primary care doctor and asked him about your two troubled pregnancies and his opinion.
I heard of women getting a laproscopy done to find out whats going on with their reproductive organs and they got pregnant afterwords.
I really think that a specialist in this area would help you out more though.
have you tried ovulation kits you can buy at the pharmacy store.
