25 and feel like I'm running out of patience

MyQuale • If life gives you oranges... give me one lol. Loving, caring, comical and and full of moxy... pretty much sums me up!!
My man and I are 25 and we are ttc, my first and his 2nd. It is discouraging at times. We have been trying for 9 months now and AF managed to pay us an uninvited visit every time. But we keep the faith and keep bd'ing. Any advice? Thx in advance my fellow Glo'ers!
