This is the 3rd time i am writting a reply i still cant see it!
Aladunni, i have used clomid i took the 50mg i responded well to it i have most times 3 good follicles measuring anywhere from 14 to 25mm .
Are you taking clomid under doctors orders or just over the counter? Please be careful so you don't hyperstimulate your self as you will need monitoring ie ultrasound while taking clomid.

Empadac yes i have done alot of tests even some i did not need to do and  they cant find anything wrong. i have checked my blood to be sure i don't have blood clots that can cause miscarriages but still nothing , my doctor is a leading doctor in infertility and he has told me i should just be patient, as they cant find anything wrong why i am having miscarriages. but i am doing my own little research i have heard of something called natural killer cells that thinks a baby is a foreign body and trys to expel it before it grows. May that not be my portion.

mypeace you can still ovulate without visible  CM .

Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by moneygame(m): 3:28pm On Sep 21, 2009
There is no doubt that Endometriosis affects fertility. Endometrial cells can commonly be found on the fallopian tubes where they implant themselves and begin to grow. Excess estrogen in the body creates an enabling atmosphere for the endometrial cells to grow. They may scar and block the fallopian tubes, which then makes it difficult for you to get pregnant.

Estrogen Endometriosis fertility refers to the fertility level of most women suffering from Endometriosis. Estrogen Endometriosis fertility and the difficulties related to conceiving are related to an imbalance in hormone levels. It has been found that pregnancy improves your condition and in some cases may even bring permanent relief from the symptoms of Endometriosis.

Estrogen promotes the growth of cells, therefore when in excess there is excessive growth of cells. This causes the cells to then proliferate leading to Endometriosis as we know it. In estrogen Endometriosis fertility the hormone progesterone is much less than the estrogen found in the body.

It is important to note that the actions of estrogen are controlled by progesterone. Therefore if the progesterone is low, the estrogen is out of control leading to estrogen Endometriosis fertility issues.

To counter this problem you can use supplementary natural progesterone which slows down and even stops the proliferation of these cells.

Estrogen Endometriosis fertility issues increase with age. Women suffering from Endometriosis who delay conception to their thirties find that they may not be able to conceive. According to studies done, the best treatment for helping infertility if you have Endometriosis is surgery. This is the only way you can improve the chances of conception.

Hormonal suppression will not have the same effect regardless of the drug used. Additionally, estrogen dominance has been linked to endometrium cancer, which may result in surgical procedures to cut out the cells. This however is not a cure as some of the cells may be too small to see and may simply keep growing and cause the same problem.

Another factor that must be considered when discussing estrogen Endometriosis fertility is how long you have been infertile. This is because your conception success rate is very much dependent on how long you have been trying for a baby before the Endometriosis was diagnosed.

If you have been trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully for 3 years or more, then the chances of getting pregnant naturally are significantly low regardless of what stage of Endometriosis you are in. Therefore, when it comes to estrogen Endometriosis fertility it is important to get an early diagnosis and have the Endometriosis aggressively treated from the get go.

Another factor to consider when discussing estrogen Endometriosis fertility is your partner's Fluid quality. If it is found to be sub-fertile, then the success rate of getting pregnant will be reduced by at least 50% compared to that of a couple where the partner's Fluid quality is normal.

One cannot overlook the fact that the woman's chances of conception reduce by 12% to 36% every month that goes by. However, if you are open to in-vitro fertilization methods they can still conceive.

When Endometriosis is in the early stages, a fertility drug known as clomiphene can be used to help you conceive. When treating estrogen Endometriosis fertility with surgery the best time to try for a baby should be immediately after surgery. This will increase your chances of conception.


congratulation in advance.

If you have spent months, or even years, trying to get pregnant, you are not alone. Although over 90% of women will be able to conceive a child within eighteen months after beginning trying to get pregnant, there are still many women who cannot. For that last 10%, trying to get pregnant becomes a hassle and a chore instead of the joyful hope that it once was. Each month seems to pass slowly, and every time your period starts again you feel like crying. If you have found yourself in this position after an extended period of trying to get pregnant, be kind to yourself. This is not your fault.

Chances are that you are already aware of the options available to you for assistance while trying to get pregnant. You know that you can try longer, attempt fertility treatments, etc. Most likely you have already chosen one of these paths. Maybe you are undergoing infertility treatments now, or maybe you have given yourself a “deadline” for beginning these treatments.

You know what you plan to do next, so why not focus on the day-to-day things? Time will pass and things will happen, but you won’t be any happier if you live month-to-month, waiting for only one special event to happen so that you can enjoy life.

Have you been trying to get pregnant so long that your life has lost its luster? Make the decision now to take steps in the other direction. Reclaim yourself while you are trying to get pregnant. Remember that you are here and life is good, no matter what kinds of hopes and dreams you have for the future.

Is there a hobby that you have abandoned since you have been trying to get pregnant? Did you used to read more books or magazines, sing in a local choir, grow an awesome strawberry patch in your yard? Take a moment to think about what used to bring you joy. Now make a concrete step for yourself to take this week to bring some of that joy back while you are trying to get pregnant.

If you used to read a lot of novels, promise yourself that you will go the library one day this week and check out a book that you know you will enjoy. And then read the book!
Consider also the simple pleasures that are all around you. These daily pleasures are available whether you are trying to get pregnant or not. They are yours for the taking, so enjoy them. Some simple pleasures include taking a bath, watching people, serving dinner on the nice plates even if there are no guests, noticing the small changes in the weather, and spending time with friends. Make a goal to notice and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Don’t let them slip by while you are trying to get pregnant.

i want you to just send me email at pregnancyguru@gmail.com

so that i can send you more tips,just feel free to do so because am here to help you.

It's with full attention that I read this post. Suffice it to say that I am passing through the same problem with my spouse, we've been married for 5 years now without an issue, though we've had a couple of miscarriages. But we are not losing hope or losing our joy, neither are we giving up.

A friend of ours wanted to introduce us to her doctor for treatment, but she suddenly grew cold feet. Just yesterday we were discussing how to get a good doctor.

By the way, my spouse and I are in our early 40's.

First thank you oh powers that be for unblocking my handle lipsrsealed
My peace how far, have you been tempted to test yet?

Venuss that condition seems like a very difficult one, are you just seeing one doctor or you have gone a specialist in this Field?I pray too that it works for you. There is nothing to hard for God.

Empadac i tried replying last week 3 times but i was blocked so could not say nothing. I know you said you looked on line but remember many illnesses or diseases have similar symptoms so it might be difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is .
But since you have a clue and you have just tested for it that is a huge start and i pray to God , that it is the end of this journey. No i am not a Nigerian woman who sits and just hopes and prays i have my specialist who is working with me , i am taking it one day at a time i hope the results brings you the answers you need.

Argobowei i am not a doctor but i have going through this same thing so i can tell you what i think, if you don't mind. Have you and your wife ever tested the miscarriage tissues to see if there is any chromosomal imbalance? I know they do that in Nigeria it will be serious cash it is done just to make sure you both match to have babies.

I know it is difficult but you can not let her have cold feet talk to her go with her so both of you can get tested and cover all the basis staying home and hoping is not really helping. For a Nigerian man i am happy that you have not taken a second wife grin and that you are still holding on to each other it takes a lot of guts from a man to stay with a woman in this situation especially in Nigeria when he knows he can just have a back yard girlfriend. It depends on what state you live in my friend has told me of 2 clinics one in Lagos and PHC (that is if you are in Nigeria).
Age also plays a factor in this situation but the sooner you start looking into it the better for a woman at age 30 the quality of your eggs start to decline so please try and find a good doctor asap.

My sister calm down, l feel your pains.  l was two years last May.  We just have to believe that theres nothing God cannot do.  l will advice that u try as much as possible to get something doing, that will take your mind off it a bit, cuz when u are idle, your mind will be occupied with it.    Do the ones u can, and live the rest for God.  The bible say the Barren shall keep house and become a joyful mother of CHILDREN.  This is our inheritance in the Lord and it shall come to pass.

Arlington, my sister l understand all those symptom tricks grin cheesy, still crossing my fingers - the prophesy shall speak forth this time around, and my (our)  joy shall be full
