Need help to help a friend.

This is actually for a friend who is extremely shy about this so I'm being as general as possible. She has been going through this for a couple of years. If you can be so kind as to give me suggestions for her to take to her doctor that would be great. I think if I give her a list of things to push with her doctor she might be able to finally find the answers she is looking for. Thank you for your time.

32 year old woman unable to have kids, possibly due to hormone imbalance. Clomid, provera, and various birth control has been used to achieve pregnancy to no avail. Invetro and/or surrogate mothers were options but no longer. She is currently not trying to have kids but has started her 3rd menstrual cycle in 6 weeks. Heavy bleeding, severe cramping, tenderness/swelling in pelvic region. Migraines have also kicked in as well. Sore neck, shoulders, etc.
Married 3/25/95
DS 13 yr
DS 8 yr (3+ yrs ttc)
TTC #3 since 01/02

Re: Need help to help a friend.

im sure i can't help much...but maybe she should drink some cough syrup. i read in this book (im sorry if it really doesnt help because it's just a story) but this woman was 39, almost 40 & she was trying to have a baby.
"Every Good & Perfect Gift" very good book by the way.
she was trying & trying to have a baby and nothing was working, and the doctor gave her cough syrup to help with the sperm sticking to the egg.
I really hope this can help her, if she still wants a child. but i feel kinda of lame because i got the idea from a book.

Re: Need help to help a friend.

she needs to give the list you've said to a doctor and get herself checked out.
