Trying to Conceive
Dear Ask the Midwife, I had a laproscopy done last month, I'm married, and trying to conceive. Results weren't good at all. My left tube is blocked. No egg comes out ( due to an infection when I was younger tissue formed inside the tube.) I have regular periods and have been trying for 10 months. My own doctor who performed my surgery basically told me not to even try to get preggo... I guess because it can cause tubal pregnancy. but we want a child! We have no money for fertility treatment. Advice would be great! I could use it!
My husband and I are having difficulty conceiving a 3rd child. Our oldest are 9 & 8. I've been off birth control for 5 years now. I keep track of my periods and when I'm ovulating. We still haven't had any luck but everything else seems to be normal. Can you please help us out with some info? It's so heartbreaking every month we try and still nothing.
