Trying to Conceive at 35

Hi, I am 35 years old with one child. My husband of 40years and I have been trying to conceive but have not been able to. My cycle is normal and I haven't noticed any changes in my body. Menopause is still a few years away. Could I have become barren? How do I proceed from there if it is true? Please help.

hi, welcome to this forum
you know it's quite hard to say if you have any fertility issues because I'm not a big expert in this field. But to know for sure you'd better consult any specialist. Have you ever had any medical examination? Did you have any problem concerning your fertility before? Did you bear a baby in a natural way? 
p.s. you know it could be a sign of secondary infertility. I don't want to carry you but book an appointment. 

looking forward for your reply

Hello and just the others I want to welcome you into the forum. Well just like Grace Evans I also advice you to seek the opinion of an specialist. Giving medical advice when one is not a doctor or an specialist is quite risky as many times the own conclusions one arrive are not exactly right and may end up causing you problems. Also while I dont want to sound pessimistic nor anything of the sort the possibility of you having developed infertility exist at the very least. I have read cases of person who develop infertility after their first child is born. I will add a small explanation to help you understand a little but this is not actual advice. There are many explanations, maybe your cause is not one of a condition which makes it impossible for you to conceive but instead just makes it really hard and maybe your first child came because you manage to hit that small chance and that would also explain your problems in this second try at pregnancy. I wish you good luck.

hi, I'm so sorry you have been through all these. I know it really hurts but what we can do here. The only thing we could do is hope, I was dreaming about my children the whole my entire life. God herd my prayers and he rewarded me with my boys.  I do believe one day you will be happy with your children and family. 
May I ask you a question, what the doctor told about your chances to conceive? Do you have at least 50 % for getting a positive result? 
Don't be nervous, give yourself some time to fix your mind and thoughts. best of luck
