Trying to Conceive

Concieved the day after I had paragard taken out

On tuesday october 21. 2009 I got my paragard taken out. THe next day I was ovulating and had US. My husband said: "do you think that was the golden shot" and I replied 'no that is rather unlikely'. I had read, that usually after paragard the uterus lining needs to recover and woman should go through one full cycle before becoming pregnant so the fertilized egg can actually plant in.

I am, I am not

So I gave birth to my son on September 4, 2009. It was a pre-term birth at 18 weeks. About an hour after delivery I had a DNC. My next regular cycle was October 11, 2009 -- I'm due November 7, 2009. I have several reasons to think I'm pregnant:

1. my nails are growing like crazy -- the never did and only did during my first pregnancy
2. I have a metal taste in my mouth
3. I'm having heart burn
4. I'm tired
5. Appetite has been increased and a little "off" in taste
6. My smell has been majorly sensitive
7. My cervix was very high and very soft

TTC after 2 miscarriages

I've read many of these forums and decided it's about time to put my story into words and hopefully it may help someone else. We got pregnant in April 2008 (wasn't TTC at that time) but miscarried at 7 weeks. I was able to get pregnant again rather quickly in August 2008 but unfortunately lost that twin pregnancy at 8wks. Had many tests, laproscopy, ect but nothing found. So fast forward to the present and we've been TTC for 5 months now. I'm hoping this is the lucky month but I'm trying not to dwell on "phantom symptoms". I am only 3dpo with 28 day cycles.

Sigh, I'm so frustrated with ttc though I know I shouldn't be. We've only been ttc for 5 months now and I'm already frustrated. I realize theres couples that have been ttc for years without any luck and I suppose I wouldnt be as frustrated if I didn't get pregnant almost instantly the first time. I got pregnant within 2 months of ttc, mind you I was on bc for 7 years (including 4 cycles of depo--which i stopped as soon as i was informed of the effects, living two hours away from my SO, and only actually "trying" 4 times!), it ended in a m/c and I haven't been able to get pregnant since.

Vitamin B6 delayed ovulation and shortened my luteal phase

I have noticed in previous cycles that my LP is only 10 days. Ovulating on CD18 of a 28 day cycle. In trying to increase my LP length I decided to take Vitamin B6 100mg along with my pregnancy vitamin. I started taking it on Day 1 of my cycle and I didn't ovulate until a day later than usual on CD19. I am now on CD25 and have already started spotting for the last 2 days (bloody mucus and tar like old blood) I also feel like my period is coming. Why has the Vitamin B6 seemed to have the opposite effect on me than it does on other women? How can I lengthen my LP? I am at my wits end...

Need to know

I have been on the Murina IUD for 5 years and am getting ready to have it replaced... My husband and I are thinking of having another child in the near future and I am scared that the IUD will effect our chances of this... Can anyone tell me what I need to know??? I have 3 children from a previous relationship and want more then anything to give my husband a child of his own... But I am scared that it may not happen.

Progesterone Levels After Ovulation

Dear Midwife,
We have been trying to conceive for 9 months now so last month I had my progesterone blood levels checked on day 21. They came back as 14 which my doctor says indicates I did ovulate. However I have been looking things up on the net and they all seem to say levels need to above 30 for ovulation.

I am 42, have a 20 month old who was conceived 2nd month of trying and then had one miscarriage conceived after 2 months as well. I am worried now that due to my age I have run out of eggs. Is my doctor mistaken?
