TTC discouragement

I have been having the issue of hormone imbalances or cysts.  They symptoms for me are the same as pregnancy so We think i am pregnant because I am getting so sick but it keeps turning out that I am not!  We've been seriously trying for 6 months now and it's starting to get frustrating.  My husband is ready to give up or start trying hormone therapy.  Any advice?

Are you already charting, using opk's, etc to better your odds?  Sorry to hear your having such a hard time.  I certainly understand your frustration!!

Yes.  We know exactly when I ovulate from that.  Unfortunately, when my period is suppose to arrive varies each month by a few days!  Definately not as regular as when I was on bc! I have my annual in September.  I think if we aren't pregnant by then I'll have to discuss the hormone therapy with my ob/gyn.  Thanks everyone!

Hey,

That is tricky.  Since you have a known issue, most doctors will go ahead and start helping your TTC by getting your hormones in check and hopefully stopping those cysts from becoming trouble.  I would honestly talk to your OBGYN about it, and they can hopefully get you back on the road :).

I had cysts a long time ago, but they have been much better after my son was born.

Mine varies every month, too.  So does my O day.  It IS frustrating to never be sure if you're due or late.  :(  I hope by the time you see that OB in September it's to check on your baby!!  Good luck.

I had cysts a long time ago, but they have been much better after my son was born.

We dealt with the cysts for a long time with birth control and in January we went off of it because I had switched bc 4 times last year and none were working.  It seemed like the cysts were getting worse.  I haven't knowingly had one since I went off the pill.  (I haven't had the extremely excrusiating pain that comes with a cyst popping, thus knocking me on my butt).  I got the all clear from the doctor a month after that saying no cysts or signs of cysts.  Twins run on both sides of the family so my ob wanted to give us a shot to naturally conceive before hormones because she thinks it's likely to produce twins for us (I am okay with that! lol)

I just got a basal theremometer (my reg thermometer died) and am starting to track that as well as the OPT.  Hopefully that helps!  I am also forcing my husband to eat healthier and lose weight.  We are both not at our ideal weight and I know that can be an issue as well.
