This is untrue.

It sounds like the OP already knows that she and her husband would have to have normal sexual intercourse using a perforated condom in order to collect any specimen for testing.

I have heard of places who will cooperate. I hope you can find one, OP, if you need to go that route.

You are in my prayers.

As much as I want to get pregnant, I also don't feel emotionally or mentally prepared to deal with doctors, test, charts, meds, etc. etc. For some reason I can't cope with the idea of dealing with "fertility problems." I can't get over the idea that this isn't supposed to be that hard!

I was supposed to start learning Creighton but the instructor never got back to me about an appointment time, and since I was just forcing myself to do it anyway (with no desire to really do it) I haven't followed up with her. Do I need to snap out of my denial and start being more proactive?
My heart goes out to you. My husband and I have been trying for 8 years to get pregnant but haven't been able to. We had one miscarriage about three years ago and that was the last time I was pregnant. I'm going to start using the Creighton model in two months when the counselor comes back from having her baby. I'm excited and hopefully and put my life in God's hands.

Why don't you reconsider not charting and do the charting with me? We could learn together. I sure would love to have a TTC buddy. PM me if you're interested.
