    Good Afternoon everyone! I am new to the forum, and I spent my morning reading through all of your posts. 

    I am 23 and was diagnosed with Endometriosis in June 2018. My SO and I have been TTC for two cycles. I am due for AF on April 20th, and I am patiently waiting to take a test!! I am getting so caught up in my head with fear since I got my diagnosis about being able to conceive. I took an ovulation test last week while we were trying and got a positive LH on the day that my ovulation predictor app indicated (pic included). My SO and I had sex pretty much every day during my fertile window. 

    I know we haven't been trying long, but I am so caught up in my head. I feel like I am obsessed, looking at every ache pain/ or symptom as an indicator of pregnancy. I find myself reading articles and looking at statistics daily. I just need a place to talk to other women who are going through the same thing, my SO just doesn't understand. 

    Thank you for your posts and putting me (somewhat lol) at ease. 
    Good luck to everyone <3
  • Hello everyone, 

    First time posting here!
    My partner and I have been trying for a baby for 6 months. In my last 3 cycles we made sure we were having sex several days during my fertile window realising (for him mostly) that it wasn't as easy as we (he) thought. Also, I get PMDD some  months so I really want/need to get pregnant to kind of stop those episodes until I can go back to pill. This month my partner decided he was too tired to have sex on the most important day, the one before I ovulate (LH peak). The reason is simple, he gets up very early to go to the gym or to work (6am). I feel very upset about it because its only a few days in a month and I wish he prioritised us during that time.
    Am I being unfair?

    Looking forward to reading your opinion.

  • Hi there! I really understand you. This makes you obsessed and crazy, and you feel like the only thing that you see around you is babies or pregnant woman, so it is impossible to think about something else. Some people try for months or years, and some just get pregnant by a blink of an eye.

    There are many tips what you and your partner can try if you want to get pregnant. I came over this article, 10 tips that can help you get pregnant. https://baby-turtle.com/blogs/baby-development/10-things-that-can-help-you-get-pregnant

    I hope it works, good luck!

    Hey @Ashleigh5485. Can I ask your symptoms for endometriosis? As we are also trying for 7 months but no luck. I'm afraid now!

    Hi @Sam. 
    I had quite a few symptoms before my diagnosis. Really heavy periods. Very painful cramps and back pain. Pain during sex. The only definitive way to diagnose endometriosis is through a laparoscopy, which I finally got in April 2018 after serial abdominal ultrasounds. Also- my grandmother and mother both had it so it was about a pretty high chance. Even if you did have endometriosis it doesn't necessarily hinder your ability to conceive, the bigger issue is that you cannot seek treatment while trying to conceive because it's your ovaries causing the issue. 

    I am happy to say though, that I am pregnant now. 8 weeks tomorrow and everything is great. 

    If you're concerned, I would just speak to your doctor. Goodluck 💕
