I am sorry to hear you have not been successful so far.  I would suggest that you see a Fertility Doctor with all your medical history and they will be able to advise you on the best treatment and your chances of having a live birth.  At the age of 42 you should seek help sooner as once you are in your forties your chance of success will reduce each year.
