Dear Rebaone,

Infertility is an exceedingly difficult condition to deal with both physically and emotionally. But it is also an increasingly common problem, so you are not alone. You are reporting a long-standing history of infertility so you will require a thorough check-up and review. I would advise that you consult with a fertility doctor so that you may receive the necessary assistance to help you conceive. It is also essential that you see a physician or GP as well to help with the control of your blood pressure and perhaps a psychologist to assist with the anxiety as both of these can negatively impact on conception, pregnancy etc.
