ALL MOM'S & MOM TO BE'S...I HAVE A QUESTION...

My husband & I have been together almost 6yrs (November 20th), & we've married for a hair over 5 (August 29th). Since we got married we've been trying to have a baby, & well it just hasn't happened. I went to the doctor & everything with me is 100% I'm good to go. So my husband got worried it was him so he went to the doctor & everything with him is fine too. So we've been trying 5yrs, nothing wrong with either of us, & yet still no baby...so my question to all you (those who have had kid/kids & those trying) how long did it take you or how long have you been trying? I've been trying not to get down in the dumps, but it's really hard because it's something we both want badly & there is no reason why it shouldn't have happened, & there is nothing we can do to make it. Just kinda a little bumming you know, & curious as to if we're the only ones who feel this way.

    There was a time where I couldn't conceive and wanted to, and same with my husband. We've only been together for 5 years. I know the feeling and all I can send is hugs.
    For hubby, saw palmetto helps with fertility. It's an herbal pill. We got them from vitacost. I know there's another one, but can't remember what it is right now.
    If you took hormonal birth control, it can really mess with your system and takes longer to get pregnant.

      Have you tried any of the fertility teas or herbs that they have to see if maybe that would help? I know it is frustrating when you want it so much. I have never struggled with getting pregnant but I remember all the years I spent single and wanted nothing more than to have a baby. It is not easy to want something so much, I remember some nights where I would think about having kids and wanted it so much it literally hurt and I would just curl up in a ball and cry myself to sleep. Lots of prayer and learning to relax or focus on something else, normally crocheting or reading, helped ease the constant thinking about it for me.

      I'm not too sure what they all they checked on him, but they said there was no reason he shouldn't be able to get me pregnant. On me they checked the shape of my uterus, my eggs, my hormone levels & so much more.

        It really did not take us long but we have not used any form of birth control other than condoms the first couple of years of our marriage. I keep hearing that birth control can sometimes delay conception after coming off of it. You would think 5 years would be plenty of time though. I can only imagine how disappointing it is for you.

        I've never used any type of birth control.

        Yes, I keep up with it the best I can, & started using ovulation tests.

          I haven't been able to try it and won't be able to until my reversal but there is website that is called conceive easy . It is a kit especially for conception, free ovulating test, free pregnancy test and natural fertility pills to boost the ability of folks who are having or want a quick conception. If you want to try it but are skeptical I would be more than happy to pay the shipping to help you as much as I can wholeheartedly . Just so we can try and take this sadness away and we all come out blessed. I have my four older children but I have to get a tubal litigation reversal before I can try for another. Please don't be annoyed or ofended this is my heart felt pray and if after all this time I could by some awesome blessing help by golly I will in anyway that I can . I am going to try it but much later on. sending my prayers your way.

          DON'T TRY THAT!!! I did it was supposed to be "Free" you just had to pay the $10 shipping & handling which I did, but I NEVER received my stuff. I tried calling the number don't work, tried emailing & never got a response...it's just a way to get a hold of your checking.

          Yeah, I was going to try it myself, but after paying they never sent it to me...luckily I had used a prepaid debit card so they didn't get my checking information because I have a feeling they would have whipped me out.

          I've been w/my husband almost 7yrs & married for almost 6. We'd been trying since we got married to have a baby, & it just wasn't happening. We had both went to the doctor & nothing was wrong w/either of us. I had given up, but now we are finally pregnant.
