TTC over 50 without specific health problems
I am 50 yrs old, and my husband is 54 yrs old. We have 2 children (late teens/early 20s), and had two miscarriages after each child was born many years ago. I am still menstruating and ovulating regularly. We have only ever used natural birth control (condoms, rhythm method, abstinence during fertile times) to prevent unwanted pregnancies for the last 20 years. We want to have another child, and so recently in the last few months, we have been having regular intercourse around my fertile times, and we want to have another child.
I use progestelle oil (natural progesterone) on my skin 1 to 2 times a day. I have been using progesterone cream or oil since I was 45 yrs old (5 years). For many years I used progesterone for 3 weeks of the month (starting 1 week after menstruation begins) and more recently have tried to cut back to just use it for the second 1/2 of my cycle, since I read it can prevent fertilization if used during the first half of the cycle.
It seems like I conceive and get pregnant and feel pregnant for several weeks after ovulation, but the implantation does not occur and my period comes a few days late, which feels like a miscarriage.
If my husband and I do not have any underlying health problems, no family history of reproductive disease and no use of birth control pill or medications, but are older and having difficulty with implantation and perhaps issues with the lining of the uterus's ability to sustain pregnancy, would this program be of help?
