Trying to Conceive

Could I Be Pregnant After Miscarriage?

Dear Midwife,
On August 8 I had my menstrual cycle it was irregular. It lasted three days. A week or two later my breasts and tooth started to hurt and I was craving ice lattes. I don’t like coffee like that.

I was waiting on my period because I thought I was about to come on because of the cramping. But it didn’t, on September 5 I found out I was five weeks pregnant.

Slightly Worried re: IUI

I was just reading that IUI only works 10-22% of the time. That's less than a 1-in-4 chance!
It's upsetting to me.
We did our first round if IUI a week ago - no additional drugs were involved - so now I'm kind of freaking out.
WHAT if it doesn't work?
WHAT are we going to do?

My DH said that he's wanting to try IUI again - in a couple of months. But every week that I'm spending not being pregnant is making me upset.

We have no children. We've been trying for over 6 years.

I'm definitely having problems right now...

Ovulation After Miscarriage

Dear Midwife,
I am 22 years old, I have been off of birth control for about 14 months. I did not start having normal periods until 7 months after I discontinued birth control.

Finally at the middle of Nov. I found out I was 7 weeks pregnant, however I had a miscarriage the following week after I found out. After the miscarriage i have only had one period on Jan. 17.

After missing my period I took a test and it was neg. Then took a blood quantitative hcg and came back with less than 1.

Introducing Myself

Hi, everyone.
Just thought I'd introduce myself.
I didn't think I'd sign up so early for an account on (or Pregnancy.anywhere, for that matter) but I figured I would. Who else would know so well what I'm going through?

My husband and I have been TTC for 6.5 years. A very long time.
About 7 weeks ago, we started on the fertility-help journey fir the first time.
Thankfully we've found out that we're both so normal it's amazing we even needed the help at all!

That's the good news.

More good news is this past Monday we did a round of IUI.

Can I Be Pregnant?

ok, i have always had an irregular menstrul since i began my cycle at 16. Me and my boyfriend have been trying to have children, but it just seems like no luck. In dec. 2008 my mensturl came on the 17th, then in Jan. 2009 it came on the 7th, but when it came on it only spotted for 3 days then went off for two, then spotted for 2 more days. Then went off. It has never done that before, and even in the past when it has spotted, it usually come on fully within the next day. I have been feeling weird lately but im not sure if its just my concious.

Pap Test and Trying to Get Pregnant

Dear Midwife,
My husband and I have been trying for a baby since I came off my period on the 18th of Feb 09.

Today I just went for my first ever smear test or pap test( I am 23 been married for almost 2 years no other sexual partners) The problem is I don't know if I am already pregnant, and If I am would the pap test I just had done jeopardize the potential of me being pregnant? Or does it cause no risk at all (My next period is march 11th 09)

Thank you


Setting my own destiny

I am 29 years old and will be 30 this coming June. My husband and I have been married for three years and have tried to conceive on and off for the past two years. I say on and off because I have very irregular periods. This past year I went nine months w/o a period. High stress caused me to stuff my face uncontrollably and before you know it I'm @ my heaviest weight. I was told by a doctor that losing weight will help regulate my periods. Sigh.... I didn't know it would be so hard to get pregnant.

Getting pregnant

well my boyfriend and i have been trying to concive for a few months and nothing has worked out.

Well the doctor wants to put me on fertility drugs but i dont have any troubble ovulating.

though we have jus decided not to try everyday!
We have been having sex everyday of the month hoping to get pregnant

Then i realized it takes a few days for the sperm to mature
So this month were just going to have sex on my most fertile days.

We have the ovulation kit and my boyfriends taking tablets to help his fertility.

so hopefully this month we concieve!!
