My husband and I have been trying to concieve for 2 years, and have had not success. We have been told that everything is normal, and just to wait. Right now this is really getting to me and am finding myself to be very upset all the time. Is this something a lot of couples have trouble with, the waiting part? And, how do we try and stay postive and focossed?

I am going through the same. It's been over 1 year and nothing.
I think it's even getting to the point that I don't even want to try anymore. I hope you get pregnant soon. All the best to you.

Ladies I know this is a really hard journey...but we really have to believe in God he is the only one that can and will let it happen, I am truly speaking from experience...I myself have been trying to conceive for 5 years after my first child, I was diagnosed with block tubes and pcos, after test upon test and rounds of clomid, i finally gave up and put my mind to something else, because I really thought it wil NEVER happen, needless to say i gave birth to my lill miracle in 2004 with out fertility treatments, so ladies don't give up God will give you the that lil bundle of joy you desire when it is your time, I have a girlfriend that has been married for 5 years and she just gave birth to her first last ladies i know it is easier said than done because I have been there, but try to be patient, try occupying your lives with other good things, enjoy your husband etc, take vacations and when you least expect it, it will happen...if you are not already doing so, eat healthy, exercise wil happen when it is for you and believe me the day you give birth it will be worth all the wait. I have been trying again for the pass 6 months and nothing yet, so I am starting to see a fertility doc again

Have you tried getting an HSG test, this is where they chekc you tubes for blockage. Generally, this helps you conceive. My friend did this test the week before Thanksgiving and she ovulated the next week and got pregnant. If you haven't, try that test. I wish you all the luck in the world. My husband and I are having fertiltiy problems. He has no sperm in his semen and he just had a varicocele vein removed. We're hoping that surgery will allow some sperm to pass through.

pamandgeorge, if I were you, I would talk to another dr, unless you are fully comfortable and in agreement with your dr. 2 years is a long time to have been trying only to get a "just wait" answer. Usually drs will assist you after you have been trying for a year. You said everything is fine, but what tests have you and your husband taken so far? I know it is tough. My dh and I have been ttc for almost 2 years. We also have "unexplained" infertility. Hang in there!

Can assume you have been tested for everything, took all the tests and everything is normal? If you did and everything is normal, I would take a proactive approach and go to a specialist if you are not already. A specialist is more aggressive in getting women pregnant and can decide which is the best course of action for you. Waiting is fine if you want to do it, but it is so emotionally draining. I believe in the power of modern medicine and being proactive with getting pregnant. As for staying postiive, keep venting on this forum and getting the support you need from whereever you can. I had PCOS and got pregnant naturally, but it took me 11 months to do so. I went to an RE after 6 months of trying, so I understand your frustration. With staying focused, going to an RE and following a plan of attack will help you stay focused on achieiving your goal of being parents. Just my opinion :) Best of luck in your decision.
