Q: how long before you give up?

hi all not really a question just a whinge really, just wondering if any of you have thought about how long you try before giving up - i think i'm there now, 2 years of trying with pcos and endometriosis, cant get fertility help (already have children so not eligible) other than ivf which i cant afford, how many months do you go thru this before you admit its never gonna happen?

thanks sugarandspice19, i was feeling really positive this month, well up to today, had my usual symptoms of nausea, tiredness, achy boobs all normal for me with pcos, but this month i had a horrid taste in my mouth and heartburn which i dont usually get, thats stopped now, then today had a bit of spotting but am sure its just the start of period coming early, hate the waiting game so much, most months i'm really good at it but not this month just feel so down today - roll on tomoro :)

I am also 8dpo today and feeling the same way. I am in the TWW on my fourth IUI. I have felt like giving up after the third IUI failed and only did this one because my husband really wanted me too. I guess the emotional ups and downs are just part of the process. Don't give up hope and best of luck to you!

Well I have PCOS too and I never really thought about it before I started trying to conceive. At 9 months of trying naturally without success I suspected I had PCOS so I went to a fertility clinic and spent another year with them after they confirmed it. After all these treatments and no success I was ready to give up. The only other option I had was IVF and even though I could I afford it I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay 10k just for a chance and conceiving. But my doctor and husband talked me into doing one last cycle of injectables. Those only cost me 1500 to 2000 bucks a cycle. So I went through with it for my husband, not invested in the treatment at all. Figured it was a waste of time and accepted the fact that I would never have kids. But then it actually worked and got a positive on my 2 year anniversary of TTC. I think it depends on the person but for me after 2 years I was done trying and just happened to get lucky for once.
