I’ve been trying to get pregnant for almost two years with no success. I’m 37 years old and have a four year old boy that was conceived from the first month of TTC.
After 10 months of TTC I went to see a fertility specialist and find out that my TSH level was too high (it was 4.8 and the doctor said should be below 1). I was sure that this was the problem for not getting pregnant. I was put on eltroxin 0.05mg and within few weeks I felt better and I lost some weight and didn’t feel that tired in the morning. After a few more unsuccessful months I took Femara (letrozole 2.5g) for 3 months but again with no success. Following femara treatment I had an anovulatory cycle of 18 days length. Following this cycle was again in my opinion anovulatory (I could not detect ovulation with the test strips and my temperature is pretty flat with only 0.2 C degrees variation up and down).
What do you think it’s going on with my ovulation and with my cycles. I normally have 26-28 days cycle with 4-5 days bleeding. I cook all our meals in house, only occasionally we eat at the restaurant. I exercise 3-4 times per week. I drink occasionally beer or wine. I think I have a good and healthy lifestyle. But there are also bad things too like almost 2 hours commuting every day, stress at work, money issues and so on, but I take these as part of our lifestyle.
Although my doctor assured me that my thyroid is doing well I do not feel that great. I have weeks when I have very bad constipation and I gain 1-2Kg, I’m depressed and anxious, then the following week I can lose this 2 kg and feel great again.
I’ve tried a few months acupuncture but it didn’t work either. I felt better while doing the sessions but after that went back to square one.
Does any of you have an idea of what’s going on with me and do you have any advice for me?
Thank you in advance ladies, looking forward to your thoughts on my issues.

After a couple of years of trying to conceive with the help of modern medicine (including a failed IUI) I've decided to take a break and try nettle, red clover and red raspberry leaf infusions. Four months later I've got pregnant with my second baby. Now I'm 10 weeks pregnant and very happy.
Thank you Ladies!
