Overwhelmed and Frustrated

Hi all, I am brand new to this site and I've been reading about problems, issues, and concerns. Sadly, it makes me feel better, that I'm not alone! Today I started clomid for a second try with it. The first time was about a year ago and I only used it for one month. I stopped taking it because it made me feel miserable, cranky, and moody.
Now that my usband and I have been trying for 4+ yrs, I figure I'll try the clomid again along with estrogyen, and a creme called prochieve 8%.
I guess I've started to write because I am so depressed. I'm strating to think I'm not meant to be a mom. I'm so sick of the stress it puts on my marriage and how I beat myself up and blame myself. Is it worth it?
I had a miscarriage almost 2 yrs ago, and since then this is the first time I thought I was truly ready to jump back on the "drug horse" again. I guess I need to have a better attitude and I did til today when I started the clomid again.
Sorry to whine, I have so much to be thankful for in my life. I need to focus on good things, right ;)
Good luck and best wishes to all of you! I'm happy I founf this website!

Hi Melissa welcome,

Don't be hard on yourself we are all meant to be parents we just need to conquer the infertilty first. Have you seen and RE to have further infertilty work done. That should be your first step. Go through all the testing then take it from there cause you need to know where to start. There are alot of different infertitly and paths to follow. Do you have regular cycles? I have been 14 years inferitile and have gone through every test. But I know what cause caused my infertilty. I will be going for IVF after the holidays

Take care

I have been through a bunch of tests nd so far nothing has come back to be problem. However, I do have endometrious (not sure if I spelled that right :) ) I am actually feeling fine on the CLomid right now! The first 2 days were my roughest.
Good luck with your IVF!
