Fertility & Reproductive Health: Meet others and share your story

Welcome to the Fertility & Reproductive Health group on Mayo Clinic Connect.
This is a welcoming, safe place where you can meet people who know first-hand about dealing with fertility complications and reproduction health. Together we can learn from each other and share stories about challenges and triumphs, setbacks and the things that help.

Pull up a chair and connect. Why not start by introducing yourself? What is your experience? Got a question, tip or story to share?

Thanks for the support, folks! I start Lupron on 3/11, with stimulation hopefully starting on 3/20. I am getting both nervous and excited for this upcoming cycle!

Hi …it is a bit silly that I have this very late decision to conceive a baby…I have not conceived before so I got discouraged and the more of that feeling when my husband left me. Now I found someone who I think would be a good father and who wants a child too but he never had a child before too…I'm 43 he is 48…I had my blood test l, I will have the result tomorrow…i dont know what will be the result…I am just wondering if you people here have any advice to give..thanks

I was 35 when I had my son. Now I’m 41 and pregnant. I feel great. I think our son made us feel younger. He certainly made us get off our butts. Being older I think made us calmer parents and we will be again. As for the pregnancy, I haven’t noticed any real difference.

Welcome @erinm2722 and @blueve97. I'm glad you found our group. I look forward to getting to learn more about your trying-to-conceive journey. Pull up a chair. Want to tell us about you?

Thank you for this positive reply…still waiting for my second progesterone test because the first one said I wasn't ovulating 🙁
