I feel you too the despair and saddness and frustration but we just need to pull up our boot straps and look towards next time. Think what we can do different supplements that may help. Since you are only using opk's you may not be ovulating even if you get af :( Maybe just chill a month get a bbt thermeter and see if you are ovulating or start now since you just started af. Check with your doctor and see what they say you are very young and I'm sure healthy so don't give up!! You are not alone thats the good thing. lol heck I have a crying spell once month or when I hear someone I know is expecting so I KNOW how you feel and I've been trying since sept so just as long as you!!! It will happen :)

I've been trying to conceive for 23 months now and I have complete peace. I rest in the Lord and have given him all my anxieties and fears! I couldn't go through this journey without him and am so thankful that he pursued me in my teenage years so that I could know that I can face every trial with His Help. Seek Him and find Him and he will make your path straight.
I wish the same for you, my friend! God Bless!

We have not been TTC for as long. But I understand what you mean about feeling so upset when AF comes. We dealt with this Saturday. Both myself and DH were tearing up. He seemed more upset then I actually. I had to explain to him, that the 20% chance we have of conceiving every month, is not a high number. We dont chart or anything. I just listen to my body and know when I ovulate. We BD every other day. Good luck to you and never give up!! You are to young for that!

Thanks girls I really appreciate it :) I think we are just going to take a break, I have spent so much money on pregnancy tests and they are always negative then the next day af shows her face ughhhh. I hope you girls all get your bfp soon :)

I understand how you feel. We're on our 9th cycle ttc. I think anything over 1 month of ttc can be disheartening. Growing up we're lead to believe the moment we have unprotected sex we will become pregnant, so when we start trying we're lead to believe it'll happen right away, which often isn't the case.
Please don't listen to that comment that if you want to give up that you must not want to be a mother very badly. I've been where you are and felt how you feel many times. It's only that it hurts us so much each cycle that it does not happen that it makes us feel like giving up, not because we don't want it, but because we want it more than anything.
As cliche as it sounds- don't give up :) It will happen :) I wish you the best of luck!

7 mos.. wow.. thats nothing... i dont want to sound rude, but ive heard some really inspirational stories from some amazingly determined women, and ive been ttc for over a year with one misscarriage, and i only have 1 tube... i know the frustration and i know the heartbreak as well as anyone... but i want it so bad so i cant just give up... if you give up then u must not want to be a mother very badly... also theres a big difference between giving up and relaxing a bit, mabey not buying a test unless ur late, or not using opks. just calculating ur fertile time and trying to do it every other day... things like that.. ive had to do that a few times.. but i wouldnt give up.. or let even 1 month pass me by without trying atleast some what... u can still try without being so agressive and obsessive about it... good luck hun.... everything happens for a reason when the time is right... sometimes the things we desperately want the most are the hardest to obtain. but the most worth it!! ;)

I am 27 and my hubby is 22. I have been taking prenatal vitamins and the only thing I have been doing to track my ovulation is test strips. I used those one month and it didn't work either. So then we just tried to have sex every other day around the time I should be ovulating and that didn't work. Its just so dissapointing. Thank you for your encouragement :)

DO NOT GIVE UP!! especially if it is something you really want!! STAY POSITIVE!!! i have been ttc and i know its not long but mentally its exhausting!! like the other person said ALOT of ppl who "take a break" end up conceiving during that time! my brother and his fiance ttc for a yr (after there daughter died 2 days after birth) and when they "took a break" that month it happened. she said she was tooo stressed...so keep trying...and just a word from the wise, cleasr blue easy ovulation tests are the best, more expensive but i used answer brand last month and nothing, this month i used CBE and bam there was my positive (ovulation) yesterday!! i was also using Answer brand this month along with CBE and answer didnt pick up my surge but CBE did, u might be like me and need a more sensitive OPK!!! goood luck keep me posted

Don't give up. It took my husband an I over a year to conceive. Unfortunately it ended in m/c but we have not given up hope that we will be blessed again. I am 41 and my husband is 47. I know you have probably heard this a million times, but it is sooo true. Try to just relax and not worry about it so much. Try to tell yourself that it will happen when the time is right. Charting also helps as do OPK's but you do what is comfortable for you. I will tell you too that there are women who have taken a "break" from TTC, and that is when it has happened. Good luck to you and lots of baby dust for us both.
