    good luck on your journey.

  3. Hi I'm Megan and new to this site. I am also not sure how to use it so sorry about the posting earlier. I am trying to decide if IVF is for us and would love to talk to anyone who has gone thru or is going thru this. We have done 6 IUI's all of which failed and I'm really just looking for some support,I for some reason feel really scared and overwhelmed by the thought

  4. how do i turn on pm feature?

  5. Hi Meg,

    Welcome to the site! I am so sorry for all your losses and hope that you can get a lot of good information and support here.

    You will probably get a lot more responses if you make a new post in the general section of the board here:

    I never did an IUI (I was skipped straight from ttc the old fashioned way to IVF). IVF was not fun but was doable and well worth it for me.

  6. Oliveolive-
    At the top of the page above the board there is a pull down menu called "Quick Links". Go to "Edit Options" under the "User Control Panel". There you will find a section called private messaging where you can turn on the options for PM\'s.
    Good Luck-

  7. How to make a chart

    The easiest way to make a nice looking chart is to make one in Excel and then copy/paste it. You can only do this if your options are set correctly:

    Go to user CP
    click on settings/options
    click on edit options
    scroll down to the miscellaneous opitons at the bottom, messgae editor interface, and select the enhanced option - full WYSIWYG mode. Now you can paste an Excel chart without it going all goofy on you.
