    TTC with no results

    Hi all, Iím 30, diagnosed with PCOD and hypothyroid 2 years ago. When I was diagnosed, my GP at the time said I was only 'minorly polycystic' and the best thing to do would be to lose weight. Needless to say, in the last 2 years, I've only ever put on weight. I was put on medication for PCOD and thyroid and no cysts now and thyroid is in control. I was on a six month course to get pregnant and given Clomid and Duphastone and a shot of hCG on day 13 as my follicle study showed that Iím ovulating on day 14. I had been hoping, but no results. This is our 8th month TTC and still nothing, I am starting to think itís never going to happen. My gyn told me to be off medications for another 6 months and keep trying. I am confused and donít really know what should I do? I really want to experience seeing a + on the pregnancy test. I just can't stop wondering if it's ever going to happen!!! My husband is extremely positive on this and says that it will take time to get pregnant, but I am less optimistic. I am fearful that we will never be able to give birth to a child - and we want a big family no doubt. Please need help immensely. Any advice or your thoughts will do. What worked for you and how was your journey. Thanks in advance to all.

    Hello, this situation is arising a lot lately. Me and one of my friends also had the similar situation so I can understand what you must be going through. Losing hope and getting depressed is common but you need to be optimistic and keep trying. If you plan on conceiving naturally, make sure you take folic acid rich diet and be proactive about trying now. You can take supplements, prenatal vitamin and increase your intake of folic acid rich foods such as whole grains, fortified cereals, vegetables, and citrus fruits. Also, keep a check on your protein and carb diet, take more of protein and less carbs. Also, it is important to not be over or under weight, both of which have negative effects on fertility and healthy pregnancies. You need to avoid smoking, alcohol, recreational drugs, hazardous chemicals and caffeine as well. Talk to your specialist about the diet you can take as she will be the best person and will give you details and a diet chart as well to follow. Also, track your ovulation with a fertility monitor or ovulation predictor kits, this will help you in timing intercourse at the right time. This will considerably improve your chances. Hope this helps you.

    8. Hi dear, I too have had PCOD since 4 years and it has got worse. I was on treatment for 3 years and then gave up. During the course I faced 2 miscarriages, the time I gave up, a friend of mine suggested that I should try naturopathy and acupuncture. As she also had the same situation and with this therapy was able to conceive and now have a 5 year old child. I thought about and tried and within 2 months of the treatment I felt my body changing and we had been trying as well and now I am 20 weeks pregnant. This treatment method is aimed at correcting nutritional deficiencies, adjusting hormonal imbalances, and improving overall reproductive health. I was advised to eat natural foods diet that focuses on fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, poultry, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Eliminate processed and refined foods (e.g., white flour, junk food, sugars). Avoid saturated fats and hydrogenated oils (e.g., margarine); use olive oil. Drink half of body weight in ounces of water daily (e.g., a 150 lb woman would drink 75 oz of water). Do not drink alcohol. There is no conclusive evidence, but alcohol has been associated with decreased fertility. Do not drink caffeine. Caffeine has been linked to tubal disease and endometriosis (causes of infertility) and delayed conception. Give it a thought, naturopathy doesn’t have any side effects but takes a little time. Talk to your specialist about this and she would be able to guide your properly. Good luck dear.

    Hi,
    You should just follow what the gyn said. He/she is the expert after all and knows best. Be off meds. Ensure every meal you take is good and nutritious. Avoid stress too. Avoid drugs because they impact your fertility negatively. Do not worry too much. You will get pregnant. If not naturally, then you can use assisted methods and be a mother. There is a good fertility clinic you can visit in Kiev, Ukraine
