Hi Katie<br><br>It is so horrible when you hear something like that but you are not alone and this site is a great comfort. People here have all sorts of problems and still manage to have babies. If you have a look at the section for pregnant people some of the ladies on there have been successful after all sorts of complications and miscarriages etc but it's worked in the end. <br><br>Take care<br>Sandra X

Hi Katie, <br><br>I have known in myself that I couldn't conceive for 3 and a half years, but only found out in January that I have one blocked tube and lots of adhesions on the other side. It has taken us this long to decide that we are ready for IVF, as I didn't want to feel obsesive about it, but as soon as I found out that my Dr wouldn't prescribe my drugs on a NHS prescription, only on a private one I became like a woman on a mission to find the cheapest chemist!! Have my initial appointment on Friday to discuss dates and so on. <br><br>If you want a chat, you can email me. This site is fantastic, I was reading it for days when we made our decision to finally go ahead. Everyone is so positive and also seem to really care. <br><br>Take care<br><br>sarahx

Hi Katie - I found out just over a year ago (31 August to be precise - it was one of those days you don't forget!) that there was virtually no chance of me conceiving naturally - like you, blocked tubes. I went through a whole lot of emotions: anger about how it had happened, grief that I couldn't conceive "normally"; but also a positive feeling that at least knowing what the problem was there would be some way round it. Even having quite a definite view that we should do IVF if we wanted to get pregnant, it took quite a while to actually be mentally ready to go for it - our first cycle was in Jan/Feb.<br><br>I'd love this to be a story with a happy ending and tell you I'm pregnant. I'm not - we've now had two unsuccessful IVF attempts, and I'm now gearing myself up for a third go. But, since finding out what the problem is and starting treatment I do feel much more in control and positive than I did when it was just month after month of hoping your period wouldn't start!<br><br>Anyway, take care of yourself, and know that there are people here who know something of what you're going through.<br><br>With best wishes<br><br>Alison x

My story is a little different - after 18 months of very slow testing we were told our infertility was "unexplained". It seemed such a anti-climax. In a way it's good to know there is nothing wrong but on the other hand you think "well, why can't I conceive then".<br><br>Don't get me wrong, I would feel just as bad if they had come back with a cause but I'm an inquisitive person and I just keep questioning why!<br><br>We now have a reason though as hubby's last few sperm counts were very poor and we have to have ICSI. Doesn't explain the last 5 years when his count was alright though does it?<br><br>It's a funny old world...<br><br>Love<br><br>bibby
