"me and my partner have been together 5 years, engaged last november and have been trying for almost a year, been thru alot of ups and downs this past year so my hormone levels have been all over the place, my sister managed to concieve her 2nd child (born april this year). I have been using O test strips and no luck as of yet, my cycle is not normal cycle, i was 2 weeks late last p and got a bit excited but PT was negative as well as a blood test.
I agree with jamieG, we are still trying, but maybe not as hard as we were before, and definitely keep your faith in god, i believe in god and believe he will give us a child when he feels we are ready (which i hope is soon :D)
good luck ladies!!!
worry and stress wont help either ive heard (dunno if this is true or not).??"

"Something similar happend to my friend.She didn't get her period so she did the test and came up positive..In couple of days she got her period so she went to the doctor for blood test.It came negative.The doctor said sometimes the egg doesn't "latch on" properly and so you get your period.Hope it helps.Good luck for the future."
Turned 40 last year and have been trying for number three now for 10 months or so.

"Hiya, thanks for comments to date. It is nice to hear from others of us out there. My next step is an ovulation kit I s'pose. Do take Elevit but maybe there are better alternatives. Try to avoid as much caffeine & alcohol as possible....I say 'try to avoid' 'cause it's not easy when there are various celebrations out there to attend! Does anyone else have to make a special effort with there other halves...if we were 'at-it' every night our changes would probably be greater but to be honest we are both often so tired...the romance of conceiving!!!"
I have PCOS (poly cystic ovary syndrome). Diagnosed a year ago after coming off the pill as we had decided to start trying for a baby. I have had a very hard time dealing with this syndrome, there is no clock work with PCOS so is nearly impossible to time the best time to try conceive.
Well after a year of trying we still are not pregnant and I am starting to feel quite down about it.

"Hi. i would definatly take the other ladies advice and go to visit your GP. My DH and i have been trying now for 2 1/2 years. I went to see my GP after trying for 6 months. And they were really nice and said they would refer me to Specialist after 1 year.
I managed to conceive after 1 year but had a MC. It has been a year and 1/2 since then and have been on Clomid for 5 months now.
For your own piece of mind - go to the Doctor. Tell them that you are feeling upset and stressed about the whole situation.
everyone situation is different and i know how hard it is when others around you only need to look at eachother and they are having another one. Just take each month as it comes and trying not to look back at all the BFN. Take care."
everyone around me getting preg and not me!

"Definately! I had been trying for what felt like forever (but in actual fact was probably about 6 months) when my best friend told me she was pregnant. She had only been trying for two weeks before giving up and deciding she actually didn't want more children. Too late... I was beside myself, and hearing her talk about how much she didn't want it and how fertile she was made things unbearable. I almost felt betrayed.. which is so stupid because it is not like she got pregnant to spite me! 2 months later I found out my other best friend was pregnant too, until all of a sudden it seemed like the whole town was! It is natural to feel so upset that and I think you should let yourself to a certain degree. At some point though (preferably sooner rather than later) you really have to accept it and move forward.. otherwise it will ruin your friendship and place even more stress on your body (which isn't going to help the conceiving!) best of luck xx"
