Fertility Issues & Erectile Dysfunction

TTC for 2 years... now pregnant!

I've been trying to conceive for two years now. After visits to the fertility clinic for testing, everything seemed fine. Just no luck naturally. I'm 35 years old and I can feel my clock ticking BIG TIME! Smile
Anyway, at the beginning of this month, we started our fertility injections and insemination. I have a few friends who have been going through infertility as well, so it was nice to have someone to talk to about what I was going through. Here is my experience within the last few weeks...

If this whole process goes naturally without any problem it’s a good achievement in itself. Most of the women’s don’t know about " How to get pregnantHow to get pregnant". There are ways to help the process along, though.

Pamela's Journey

It's amazing that I have spent most of my life trying NOT to get pregnant. I thought since my mom was one of thirteen kids and I'm one of five that my genetic chances of conceiving were pretty good. Last year I decided to go off of birth control and my period stopped coming as well. I am in the military and I deployed to Iraq in September of last year. Before the deployment I took birth control again because I was getting anthrax shots and was scared of getting pregnant and injuring my unborn child. I got my period just like any regular girl would.

Infertility Roller Coaster

The roller coaster ride really did mirror infertility treatment for me and many others. I would do something that terrified me, that wreaked havoc on my body and my mind for my child. I would take what I perceived as a personal risk for her. When I knew I couldn't handle the roller coaster anymore I chose another ride, hoping that different ride would work.

Getting Pregnant Again with Low Sperm Count

Dear Midwife,
I am 25 years old and trying for a second child. It took my husband and I almost 6 years for our first child. We had testing done and I was fine but he had a low sperm count. The doctor said that it was very unlikely that we would conceive without in-vitro or artificial insemination. However, 8 months after the testing, we were successful in getting pregnant on our own.

I was just wondering if it was likely that it would take us a such a long time this time.
