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.


Idk what Im doing here, Im so lost... I have so many issues that I don't even know where to begin.
So, I'm 28, my bf is 37. In April 2009 is our 10 year anniversary. We've been trying for a child for so long. We have never used protection,and I have yet to get pregnant. :o( I am just to the point that I am so overwhelming saddened. My cycle has been irregular since my very 1st one.

Am I Infertile?

Dear Midwife,
I am a independent and successful woman of 21 years old. I have been trying for a child now for 3 years, with 3 different partners. I know some people would not agree with this but I want a child so much. Two of the partners had children from previous relationships.

Gynecological Infection More Widespread Than Thought

by Colette Bouchez

A gynecological infection known as bacterial vaginosis may be more widespread than previously believed, even in women with no history of sexual activity.

In a study of almost 2,000 women who entered basic training for the U.S. Marines, doctors from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) report that bacterial vaginosis (BV) was present in more than one of every four. Eighteen percent of those infected were virgins.

The research appears in the November issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
