    help needed - big doubt

    dear friends
    this is regarding one person known to me who doesnot want to disclose herself here, hence could not mention who she is. she is 39 yrs old got married two and half yrs back to a widower whose 1st wife passed away becoz of ovarian cancer and this lady has been trying to conceive immediately after marriage. but unfortunately after marriage her periods became irregular - until before marriage she was having regular 28-29 days periods. on consulting with doctors she was told that she is having hormonal imbalance and as prescribed by the doctor she had susten 100 mg for 6 months, on using this medicine she was getting periods every month. when she stopped using this medicine again no periods. then she went for homeo medicine which was of no use. then last year in the month of may she went to an infertility centre where to her surprise after urine test they told that her egg is fertilized and she was given gestone (progesteron) injection for protecting the fertilized egg and her hcg count was around 1600 by that time but unfortunately after take gestone injection for 3 days she got her periods. when she asked the doctor they said that her egg was not implanted becoz of poor quality and asked her to have no hopes of conceiving as she is 39 yrs old. next she went to another very senior and experienced doctor and again this time she was given foliripe tablets to be taken for 5 days from 3rd day of periods and from 16th day of periods she was given duphaston tablets which will prepare the uterus for implantation - that was told by the doctor and folic acid tablets alongwith these tablets. after taking the tablets for two months she got her periods and then she had to relocate to a different place (abroad) and when she told the doctor about her relocation,doctor asked her to continue these tablets for 3 months and she said if there is god's grace she will be pregnant or else forget about having children. this lady fed up of all this and totally stopped taking duphaston and foliripe - didnot take for 3 months as advised by doctor. now the thing is she got her last period in the month of august 2009 and till now she didn't get her periods and she got a negative report on having a home pregnancy test. btw her dh semen analysis is fine and he is not having an issues with his 1st wife as she was suffering from severe endometriosis and doctors told that she cannot conceive.
    now this lady is in utter confusion she doesnot know what to do and she requires advice from others
    Hence request you all to please pour in your suggestions or advice and help this poor lady.
    please advice her the reason for her not getting the periods and any suggestions for improving egg quality, ovulating and thereby conceiving. she is not having any major health problems
    sorry for bothering you all and thanks in advance

    Hi Subha,
    Consulting a doctor continuously for few months would be a best suggestion. If there are few medicines prescribed & if you feel the way the treatment is going is fine, continue it until you find a result. Or find a good gynec & proceed with your treatments with them if you are not happy with the gynec or not able to continue with them. At the age of 39, one's hormone is set to live in imbalance & you need full medical care to solve the infertility quest. She may need complete monitor to achieve pregnancy.

    There are few basic tests done to ensure female reproductive system. Blood tests on hormones, HSG to rule out tube blocks & so on. (Hope she has undergone all these!) If the woman body is good after these tests, with proper medical care she can try to conceive or try medicines for better follicle growth. May be she can try IUI or IVF too. It will increase her chance of conception.

    Ask her to consult a gynec & continue treatments for months together...
    Sticky baby dust to her & to you!

    many people do mistake to take infertility treatment with general gynocologist. They are not actually very trained for infertility issues Do take treatment from Infertility specialist gynacologist who/she was not busy with other ladies delivery issue.
    Normal gynacologist nursing centers are maint for delivery whereas infertility specialist is trained with all infertility related issues. So do try to consult infertility specialist and take continual treatment as age is issue

    Hi Nivedhia,
    Hope your gynec is giving the best fertile days while you are taking Ovulation tablets. If not try to cover the ovulation/fertile days. How long is your cycle? If its 28 days, try to cover from 10th day till 18th day of your cycle. If possible IC on everyday or alternate days! Both will do good.

    Eat healthy food. More veggies, fruits, greens & protein rich food. All these things will help you body for pregnancy.

    Stay cool. No tension during this period will help you a lot. Be happy.

    Vasumathy has answered most of your questions.
    Relax since stress is not good during TTC and that can also be the reason for not getting pregnant.

    good luck.
