I am 35 years old and had my sterilisation reversed last May. I have tried all the tricks in the books and have had no joy.Am I too old? should I be content with the 3 children I already have? Or is there anything else I can try?HELP11111

Well I am 40 have 2 children aged 15 and 12. Second marriage/partner and we are pregnant with our first (have lost 2 though in last 8 months)....It is down to the individual I have had comments especially the 'ex' who thinks I am too old - ha...I dont think so. I take it your reversal was a success? If so I was told after doing the 'baby dance' put a pillow under your bottom to help those lil soldiers on their way, worked for me and I was told I was not as fertile!!! Hope everything works out for you.

Take care, Flossie xx

Hi I am 40 and have 2 children 13 and 10 and am also ttc at the mo! My husband and I both have felt like we would like to try again for a while. We have only been trying for 1 month and no joy the first time!!! Fingers crossed for this month but I am going to try not to build up my hopes for it to happen quickly as I know your body changes as you get older. It could take a while so I guess it is best to not get too wrapped up in it. Its hard though as when you want something badly it does tend to take over your thoughts.

Anyway good luck lets hope it works for you, me and everyone in the same situation.

Hi Juli1 ,

I am in a similar situation to yourself Heltz123 and Flossie ( hi ladies keep bumping into you 2 x ) I am 38 and have 3 children 16, 14 & 11from a previous marriage.
So I also had to have my sterilisation reversed ( February ), to start again with my Partner who has no children of his own.

I must say I don't feel any different, I know my age but I don't feel it and after reading lots of advice on this site I feel even more positive about it !! I have more patience and experience so hopefully only time will tell - Five days to 2nd AF post op.

A lady mentioned on here last week about the big "O" Embarassed . . . apparently if you do just after your partner the cervix opens and helps the little guys on their way, kinda sucks them in ( a couple of ladies where off to ann summers for some extra help ) . If you look back through some of the posts theres lots of little helpfull hints and tips

Good luck to everyone

Hi
Well Im almost 35 and my children are 8 and nearly 10. i cant wait to have another child and think its up to the individual. A lot of my friends have had children when slightly older and have said the siblings really enjoy helping and being part of the babies life. If you feel fit and well, then why not I say! Good luck juli, hope it happens for you. Pup x

You are not too old at all!

I'm 33 and pregnant with my first. Most of my friends my age still haven't started trying. People are doing it a lot later these days... especially in London.
