I know how you feel. Have been off the pill for more than a year now. Again today, I know my monthlys are on the way and I am so depressed and teary eyed!

I've been trying for 2 years and 2 months now. I really know how hard it is to stay positive and motivated.

boy do I feel your pain. My husband and I have been trying for over 4 months now and still nothing and I get so angry when my period comes. And yes it does seem everyone else is pregnant and all of a sudden thats all you hear on TV too.I've been to the doctor and she says I'm healthy but I often wondered if I should buy a home sperm count kit for my husband just to rule out one more possibility. Don't give up, it seems like there are plenty of woman out here that are just like you and I and are really searching for answers. I've been told that I should stop trying so hard and just let it happen.

Deedee, i know exactly where you are coming from, my husband and i are 23 and we have been trying for 12 months and my younger sister and all my friends that are younger than me are having babies, i feel jealous and grow depressed when my period comes around. But everyone keeps telling me that because of my worry and depression it may be what is causing "no baby". So i really try hard to not think about it and let nature take her course. Easier said than done i know!!!

Hi, I too know how you feel. My dh and i have been trying for 4 months, which I know isn't long in the gran scheme of things but I've just got af & it's so disappointing. I don't understand it. We have sex at the right time, why the trouble?? People around me are having no problems and I'm soooooo fed up of hearing that ' well it happened at our first try'!! Rub it in or what!! God, that's annoying!!! At least the baby will be well-loved and well-wanted when it's our turn hey?!

I feel your pain.I've been trying for about a year and a half. All my friends are having babies and even friends that I know who dont want kids are having babies.

i have been trying for a year and do understand how you feel still nothing happening. apparantly your other half needs to wear strip pants to keep his bits nice and cool. i have tried ovulation kits and also keeping an eye on my cycle aparantly it will happen but you have to try and stay positive look on the internet and try and get some ideas. the average time to get pregnant is about two years so keep trying

Hang in there!! During the last two months, my sister, best friend, two colleagues and two other friends had babies. I sometimes have to stop myself from pretending that they are mine while I am holding them. It makes me so sad, but I know that I'll have one of my own sooner or later and I'll never stop trying.

I know exactly how you feel. My husband and I have been trying for 14 months. My faith is what keeps me strong. Hang in there. I wish you well.

I know how you all feel i have been off the pill for 2 years and three months. And still no baby! It is very hard to keep your self from getting depressed but i just tell my self that it will eventually happen and try to keep my spirits up and keep trying. I think our next step is a sperm count on my husband. GOOD LUCK!

I understand exactly how you feel! I went off the pill in March 2004 and waited until Jan 2005 to start trying to give my body a chance to get back to normal, I always thought that it would just happen for me right away! Still no baby & I hate the thought of having to wait 12 months of trying before going in to see if anything is "wrong"!

Hi, to all the ladies out there who are ttc, hang in there, be patient, I know it is difficult, but we have no choice. We have to wait, be let down each month, and then try again...and eventually, God willing, it will be tears of joy and not sadness. You know, when you want something really badly, it feels like it is taking forever, well, this emotional ride of ttc will probably shape us for the future and make us really good moms? who knows. All I can say is that we have to keep thinking of the end goal. It will be well worth it - and also we do not have a choice! we have to keep trying! Would'nt it be great if we ovulated everyday?
