My husband and i have an 18 month old. We have been trying to conceive our 2nd child for 9 months now. Prior to trying to conceive i had a mirena device inserted. I occassionally have pain during sex, as if there is some swelling at the top-most point of my uterus. I had an ultra sound which came back fine, however they told me i did have varicose veins in my uterus. Can this be affecting my fertility, or is it natural that it is taking so long.(i know 9 months isn`t long compared to some people!) We were lucky enough to get pregnant straight away with our first child.
