Well I don't really know how to start this but here goes. Please bare with me...
I am 42 and husband is 47. We've been married for 11 years now and have only start thinking about having a family just this past year. Our lives has been a little hectic the past few years being both me going for my undergraduate and him getting his MBA so now that we've done that, we felt that we are now ready. I guess you can tell where this is going. We're both in our 40s and I don't know a whole lot about fertility and what to do and what is the next step. I was married previously and had 2 beautiful lovely daughters. Coming from a different country and different background, I still don't know how I got pregnant so easily before. Both of us have no one that we can be open about this topic as we come from a small family and we aren't very social either. When I approached my family doctor she suggested that we tried the natural way. Sure! No problem, except that charting your temperature and trying to get your husband to bed while you are ovulating doesn't really coincide very much! Pardon my being blunt but it's just the honest truth. We barely have sex anymore anyway. Not to say that we don't love each other. My husband and I are very open about this whole topic and he knows that he and I will have to see the doctor to get help. The problem is, where do we start? How do I tell my family doctor that I can't get my husband arouse in time to get me pregnant while I am ovulating? lol . How do I know if I or my husband is having a problem Where do we start? Is there a good doctor that we can talk to? We're from Burlington, Ontario.
Any advice is very much appreciated. :/
